Emily Johnson is out of her element when she moves from California to Kauai to run her uncle’s legendary bar, the Tiki Goddess, but she is even more out of her element when a dead body is discovered in the luau pit. Since the suspect list includes her uncle and her bartender, Emily and the Hula Maidens, an over-the-hill dance troupe, are on the case to clear their names and find the killer. When another body turns up and Emily is hurt, it will take the combined efforts of Emily, the Hula Maidens and the police to find the killer. (BELL BRIDGE, Jul., 228 pp., $13.95)
