Publisher's Summary

Six months ago, if anyone would have told Em Johnson she'd end up divorced, broke, and running the dilapidated Tiki Goddess Bar on the magical North Shore of Kauai she would have told them to shove a swizzle stick up their okole.

As if all that isn't bad enough, when an obnoxious neighbor with a grudge is found dead in the Goddess luau pit, suspicion falls on Em and the rest of the Goddess staff. With the help of a quirky dance troupe of over-the-hill Hula Maidens, Em and the cast of characters must ban together to find the killer and solve the mystery before the next pupu party.

Hawaiian HilarityI

Would you listen to Mai Tai One On again? Why?

I'm keeping Mai Tai on my Ipod so I can listen again. It is well done with the voices matching the characters perfectly.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the Hula Maidens. Each voice was different and fit the character perfectly. The humor in the book kept me laughing and the story was great.

Have you listened to any of Tanya Eby’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first and I liked it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Don't waste your time

I figured out who did it and why in the first chapter. I forced myself to listen for the first 10 chapters before I skipped to the end to see if I was right. The villain actually said "Everything was going perfectly well until you and your friends started snooping around." Scooby Doo fans does this sound familiar? Come on!!! The dialogue was sub par, the detective made the classic mistake of blaming the one person who had a record, (and it did not matter that the charges had been dropped and it wasn't a violent offense). The pacing was incredibly slow and the characters were annoying. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

blech

I enjoyed all the books in this series, ......but
in this audio version the narrator is terrible....she is not adept at different voices; all the characters sound about the same
also, the narrator butchers the Hawaiian names/words, some of which are totally unintelligible ...
this poor performance by the narrator severely detracts from the enjoyment of this audio book

Narration, nails on a chalk board!

Narrator was a total distraction! Learn to say the Hawaiian words properly. Story line was a cheap shot at the local island way and showed how a pure culture has been "raped"!

A fun story set in Hawai'i!

This was a fun, corny crime story set on Kaua'i. Very entertaining for my drive to and from work. Will be looking for more of Jill's work.
