Set during the current pandemic, Leilani is finding herself adrift. University on the mainland didn't quite work out and she returned home. Re-vamping the family business was going well until the pandemic and it's resulting lose of business hit. This all changes the day she and her sisters find a body, actually a woman on the beach who is mercifully still breathing.
I'm not going to get into the plot as it is a mystery. I will say that this book goes beyond a cozy mystery. There is wonderful character development as well as learning about the island society. I do feel that as well as being entertained, I learned something about Hawaii and how people there are coping with the current situation. I definitely would read a future book about Leilani and her extended/chosen family.
I received an advanced reader e copy of this book from Ingram Publisher Services in exchange for an honest review.
