    Loyal friendships, romance, a tropical setting, and interesting characters make this a charming cozy mystery I liked how Gabby is an amateur sleuth who knows and acknowledges her inexperience How did people like Sherlock Holmes and Rick Castle do it ask obvious questions without seeming like total idiots I certainly didn t seem to have the knack for it Maybe it just took time and practice, or maybe it took someone who didn t mind looking like a complete and utter busybody p.56 Investigating was hard Everything pointed to everyone, yet to no one at all, and all at the same time p 141 She is different from other amateur detectives in that she doesn t embed herself in the mystery out of curiosity, but rather out of necessity Her business is on the line and it is up to her to save it She is independent and brave and doesn t allow herself to get close with others But the relaxed pace of life in Hawaii and loyal friends convince her that just maybe she can let down her guard a little With a little luck and help from her colleagues, Gabby is able to single out the potential suspects, follow the leads, and see where it all takes her in the end An enjoyable read that has you dreaming of a Hawaiian getaway Best read with a tropical drink in hand

    I really had a great time reading this story It s a funny, light mystery set in gorgeous Hawaii The authors do a great job throwing out red herrings throughout the plot The spunky lead character, a travel agent event planner finds a romantic protector in an adventurous pilot This is book 2 in the Aloha Lagoon Mystery series, and, in my opinion, can be read as a standalone story Enjoy

    I love the Aloha Lagoon Mystery series by Gemma Halliday Publishing If you are new to the series I highly recommend booking a room at the Aloha Lagoon Resort and grabbing your spot on the beach because you are going to want to stick around The Aloha Lagoon Mystery series is a series of books written around the Aloha Lagoon Resort Each book is written by a very talented and creative author and centers around one aspect of the resortit could be the Blue Hawaii Wedding Chapel or the Loco Moco Cafe or the Happy Hula Dress Boutique or Gabby s Island Adventures. And Gabby s Island Adventures by Sally J Smith and Jean Steffens is where we are hanging out in Murder on the Aloha Express which is the second book in the series Gabby owns and runs Gabby s Island Adventures and she has just booked a huge group for a tour The group is on the island honoring the last wishes of Thomas Wesley Senior Real estate mogul Wesley Senior wanted his last will and testament to be handled where he and his wife spent their honeymoon So his very devoted lawyer, David Sherwin Esq., is there with Thomas Wesley Junior, his wife, family and a few friends to honor those wishes.Unfortunately before they can get down to business Sherwin is murdered while on the tour that Gabby set up Not only does this put a damper on the family s plans but it puts a big black cloud over Gabby s business when news of the murder on her tour gets out and the cancellations start to pour in Gabby has no other choice but to talk to the members of the family and try to put the pieces together on Sherwin s death.With the help of her twin employees, Lana and Koma and business partner Rick, Gabby starts asking the family and friends questions But with the help of the internet and one member of the party, Gabby gets herself a little too close to the murderer..I LOVE these books and especially after reading a few I can really appreciate the hard work and dedication that goes into each of them Within Murder on the Aloha Express, Smith and Steffens keep with the series and mention people that are in other books in this series It doesn t matter what book you start with because they are all individuals of their own I do, however, suggest you start with one of them and keep reading them You seriously will not want to leave Aloha Lagoon Resort even if murder seems the common denominator

    Love, money or sex which motive Terrific read Vivid characters and a rich plot filled with clues and twists The romance angle was also played well Why was the lawyer murdered Was the oldest motive in the book the reason why A rich background and a totally enjoyable experience.

    A really good cozy mystery with interesting main characters, quirky secondary characters and wonderful scenery At times I felt that I was actually in Hawaii enjoying and investigating right along side Gabby and Rick I particularly liked the romance between Gabby and Rick, the tension between them as well as the quick camaraderie and the gentle sarcasm between them All in all a wonderful start to the series I will definitely be returning to Hawaii and Gabby s Adventures.

    I loved Murder on the Aloha Express Any book that Sally Smith and Jean Steffens writes is going to be on my must buy list In fact I pre ordered this book but somehow in the mountain of books on my Kindle, it floated down until I forgot about it That is sad because I knew I would love it and I did A trip to Hawaii, wonderful well developed characters who quickly seemed like friends, a great mystery to solve It was a natural When Gabby s marriage ended, her thrill in living is a city working as a corporate travel agent faded Never did she believe that her friend s suggestion that she move to one of the Hawaiian islands would create a bigger life change than she cold ever imagine Not only is living on the island a whole new world but when one of her clients is murdered during a tour her business and her finances go down the drain With help from an irritating but hunky pilot who flirts like someone from and old movie, a really old movie and her two awesome apart time workers she determines to tackle the mystery and get it solved before she loses her business for good I loved that along the way she found a niche for herself and hope to see romance blooming in the future.Now I have to make sure that I don t let their next book drop out I have its release date on my calendar
