DYING FOR A DAIQUIRI a 2014 LEFTY Award Finalist for Best Humorous Mystery and 2014 SILVER FALCHION Finalist Best Traditional Mystery
"An intoxicating recipe for fun...A must read for the romantic mystery reader and contemporary romance reader!" Once Upon a Romance Reviews
When Laurel McKay attends a Hawaiian wedding, her vacation soon becomes more deadly than the calorie count in her daiquiri. Her post-wedding holiday upends after a beautiful hula dancer is found dead on the rocks below the oceanfront restaurant owned by Laurel's brother and sister-in-law.
After the police arrest a family member for murder, Laurel is plunged into a mystery where exotic Big Island locations--a coffee plantation, black sand beaches and a volcano--reveal their deadly side. And where is her hunky on-again/off-again boyfriend detective when she needs him?
Laurel zip-lines and four-wheels her way through the island paradise unearthing long hidden secrets. Will ingenuity and pluck be enough? Or will this hula be her last?
"DYING FOR A DAIQUIRI is the perfect title for Cindy Sample's newest laugh-laced who-done-it. Her delectable concoction will make you hanker to visit Hawaii, request life-size posters of the two hunks vying for heroine Laurel McKay's kisses, and laugh out loud at this single mom's humor and pluck--even when her life's hanging by a thread. I give five stars--or maybe it should it be five cherries--to this cocktail of a vacation adventure, sexy interludes, raucous laughs, and mystery."
Linda Lovely, Author of the Marley Clark series
"Containing humor, suspense, a vacation adventure, coffee plantation, daiquiris, zip-lining, murder, hula dancers, sexual tension, flirtations and romance set in the backdrop of the gorgeous Hawaiian scenery, this 5 star story is one you do not want to miss.
"Laurel McKay could serve as the poster girl for a normal suburban soccer mom except for one thing. She's a magnet for murder, even on vacation in Hawaii. Cindy Sample has created a heroine all gals can identify with and admire as she keeps going with wit and determination, even in the face of a homicide arrest. Sample's stories combine humor, romance and mystery, a recipe that yields a great book. Kick back with a tall, cool drink and enjoy this 5 star read!"

Dying For a Daquiri
It was laugh out loud hilarious! How can one person get into so many death defying situations, and come out smelling like arose? I enjoyed it and plan to read some of the others to see Laurel get herself into more crazy situations.
