When wedding planner Adrielle Pyper orchestrates a destination ceremony in Hawaii, she’s prepared for anything—except murder.
After the trauma of her last event, the beautiful isle of Kauai is the perfect place for Adri to unwind and do what she does best—plan. She even lets herself indulge in the attention of the groom’s handsome brother. But just when everything seems to be perfect, an afternoon snorkeling trip turns deadly when Adri discovers the body of a young woman.
Shaken, but unable to let go, Adri’s sleuthing leads her into more danger than she bargained for. When a number of “accidents” threaten her own life, it soon becomes apparent that someone will do anything to keep Adri from interfering with their vengeance.
Another fun cozy mystery featuring wedding planner Adri Pyper! I enjoyed reading more about Adri and some of the characters from the first book in the tropical setting of Hawaii. At times it almost seemed like I was reading a travel guide for Hawaii with the descriptions of the beautiful sites. I was a little worried at first about some similarities to the first book, but (without giving anything away) my worries were abated. I love all the little craft and recipe tidbits at the beginning of each chapter.
The mystery itself was well done – I think I liked this book a little better overall than the first one in that regard. I figured out some things before they were revealed, but there were also lots of twists and suspects to consider.
