Makes me want to head to Hawaii
Loved the book. I love the beach and would love to see the surfing in Hawaii. I loved the web she weaved. It was really good!
I am not a strong swimmer and I know my limitations. As such, though I love the beach and being by the ocean on the Atlantic side of the world, I would love to go to Hawaii to taste the culture there. It took me awhile to appreciate this novel, but Toby Neal fills in enough background to bring it to life. As a former English teacher and British Literature Major, the devolvement of characters to pidgen is particularly fun. I have had students register "pidgin" as their first language on registration forms for school. Very good read!
The best fun since Magnum!
This series of crime novels just keeps getting better. The characters and settings make you wish you were there and
friends with Lei and Mike and family. Very realistic and human.
No super hero nonsense, just real people with all that goes along with that. If you haven’t already read these novels, get
started now. You won’t be sorry!
