New York Times bestselling author Carol Higgins Clark's trademark light touch, humor, and quirky characters make for another wonderfully unpredictable mystery. Say "Aloha" to an unforgettable Hawaiian adventure!
L.A.-based private detective Regan Reilly gets a call from her best gal pal, urging her to come to Hawaii for one last girls' weekend before Regan ties the knot with Jack "no relation" Reilly, and so she happily packs her bags.
At the Waikiki Waters Playground and Resort, the body of Dorinda Dawes, the hotel's gossipy PR woman, washes ashore wearing a valuable lei that once belonged to a Hawaiian princess and was stolen from a museum in Honolulu thirty years ago.
The resort manager doesn't believe that Dorinda drowned accidentally and persuades Regan to take on the case. The more she starts digging, the more danger she is in. Can Regan find out what really happened before it's too late for her and the other vacationers at the Waikiki Waters?
In Clark's rambunctious 12th Regan Reilly mystery (after 2008's Zapped), the New York City PI heads for Los Angeles to help an old neighbor, film hairstylist Abigail Feeney, track down her ex-boyfriend, producer Cody Castle, who owes Abigail $100,000 she loaned him. Born on a Friday the 13th, Abigail has always felt cursed, and this is just the latest disaster in a run of bad luck. The missing Cody's filmmaking partner, Dean Puntler, is also worried, since Cody has squandered funding they needed for their production to boost hot young actress Stella Gardner. The murder of 85-year-old Nicky Tendril, one of Cody and Dean's prospective investors, adds extra stress. Might Abigail be the killer? Abigail had been cutting Nicky's hair for free until he began getting rude, but Regan is sure she's innocent. Clark's bubbly humor makes this a great vacation read for mystery-lite fans who love a Hollywood twist.
