Such a fun book.  I was looking for something a little different, particularly a unique to me setting.  When I heard about this story being set in Hawaii, I knew that I had found the one.

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.
