Mai Tai One On
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. With nothing to hold her on the mainland she hops a plane. She has been there are 6 months and some of her ideas have started to turn the place around. The jury is still out on her uncle. What really makes this book sing or I should say dance is its cast of quirky characters. Their antics had me in stitches from the first page until the last. A new neighbor is quite flamboyant and the dead neighbor took obnoxious to a whole new level.
Mai Tai One On (A Tiki Goddess Mystery, #1) by Jill Marie Landis
This series gets off to a nice start with not only a murder or two but also a kidnapping and a human femur bone found on a shelf. Everyone seems to be holding something back and those secrets lead in many different directions. Detective Roland seems to be around often but in addition to asking questions the Hula Maidens think he has romantic ideas about Em.
She feels a little spark too, but until the case is solved she has no interest in the fire dancer, no matter how good he looks in that loin cloth. I have never been to Hawaii and probably will never get there so I really enjoyed this little virtual escape. I will be back when I read book 2, Two to Mango. If you like your cozy mysteries to include a nice slice of humor, fix yourself a mai tai and enjoy!
I wanted to give this 3 and a half stars but in lieu of that, four will do. To begin with, I quite enjoyed it, for a cozy with a different setting.
The folks who have heavily criticized it seem to forget this isn't a work of great literature, just some light reading of a genre which is always heavily formulaic. So they shouldn't be too surprised at that. However, works in this genre should still make the effort to flesh out their cast of characters to prevent them from devolving into two dimensional paper dolls. It was good value at less than a dollar, I will say that. I'm willing to pay the current rate for book two in this series to see if the 'usual suspects' have developed further, then make up my mind if I'll read on further.
One person found this helpful. Finding a body in the emu pit was just the beginning of this fun romp through Kauai. I loved the Maidens and Uncle Louie. Em is the glue holding these crazy characters together and laughing out loud while reading this is a must. Can't wait for the second in this series! A terrific comic mystery romp, with an engaging cast of characters, set in the delightfully dilapidated Tiki Goddess Bar on the North Shore of Kauai. I enjoyed this book thoroughly and sat up past 2am to finish it. A great choice for a beach read, or anytime you'd like a taste of cozy paradise.
I have the rest of the series on order. So I read it too. It did not disappoint.

I laughed I was kept guessing on who to trust. I did know who was innocent because they were still characters in the third book. After I had read it I went and bought the second book and am excited to read that soon. Mai Tai One On is full of over the top fun characters. The Hula Maidens are a group of senior citizens who are dancing the hula dances at the Tiki Goddess Bar for free.
They don't dance very well but have fun doing it. They get into a lot of trouble and mischief.
Em Johnson has been divorced and broke when the Hula Maidens had a fund raiser and paid for her airline ticket over to help her run the Tiki Goddess for her Uncle louie Marshall who was having problems with his finances. She is bringing new ideas to the bar that is bringing more business in.
While everyone is in the bar someone put a dead body in the luau pit. It was their neighbor who has argued with Louis for 40 years. Reading this fresh, funny mystery made me yearn to hang out at the Tiki Goddess, sip one of Uncle Louie's drinks and watch a certain super sexy fire dancing detective entertain the crowd. This is a story for anyone who's ever been to Hawaii, dreamed of going to Hawaii, or wondered what it would be like to live in our 50th State.

I loved this book! As a part-time Hawaiian resident, I absolutely fell in love with Jill Marie Landis's spot on glimpse into a Hawaii that most tourists never see. Once you meet the quirky, real-as-your-best-friend Hula Maidens, you'll wish the book would never end. Reading this fresh, funny mystery made me yearn to hang out at the Tiki Goddess, sip Remember Me on This Computer. Need help signing in? Contact Get Help About Blog.
