    I went to Maui to stay a week and remained five. I never spent so pleasant a month before, or bade any place goodbye so regretfully. - Mark Twain With the snow piling up in Maryland, I escaped to Hawaii in JoAnn Bassett's MAUI WIDOW WALTZ, the first entry in her six book series, Islands of Aloha. Bassett lived on Maui, giving me the confidence that she could deliver an authentic experience. She did not disappoint. The heroine, Pali Moon, grew up on Maui and understands the island way of life.

I never spent so pleasant a month before, or bade any place goodbye so regretfully. - Mark Twain With the snow piling up in Maryland, I escaped to Hawaii in JoAnn Bassett's MAUI WIDOW WALTZ, the first entry in her six book series, Islands of Aloha. Bassett lived on Maui, giving me the confidence that she could deliver an authentic experience. She did not disappoint. The heroine, Pali Moon, grew up on Maui and understands the island way of life. In fact, many scenes take place off the beaten track, away from tourist traps, where kamahina (locals) survive the challenges of high cost living in a tropical getaway. Although she lives paycheck to paycheck, Pali still maintains the Aloha spirit. I commend Bassett for creating an "earthy" protagonist whose life is not quite perfect in Paradise. She also gives readers a handful of colorful characters who reflect the diversity of the islands. The story itself is humorous but not quite the laugh out loud I prefer in cozy mysteries. The mystery is intriguing as Pali uncovers the layers of deception from those involved in the wedding, akin to peeling a Maui onion. However, I found the mystery dragged during the countdown to the wedding day ... Pali spends much of her time driving up and down the East Maui mountain ... just waiting for something to explode with the bridezilla. Yet Bassett delivered a satisfactory ending, tempting me to continue with the series. Recommended read for fans of cozy mysteries and Hawaiian culture. I purchased a print copy of MAUI WIDOW WALTZ to feed my appetite for Hawaii.

    Picked this item up on a whim a while ago, then last night when I couldn't sleep I started reading? This was a fast-paced, well-plotted little mystery with a great setting. Nothing too deep; not great literature; but a great way to spend a sleepless night. A fun, entertaining read. I will go on to the next book in the series to see if the author's approach holds up.

    Slight and silly, this novel kept my interest only because a very long time ago I lived on Maui and I enjoyed revisiting the places that used to be so familiar to me. For example, a lot of the action takes place at Olo'walu, where I used to go snorkeling all the time. (There was no mansion as far as I remember when I lived there; but shortly after I moved back to the mainland a woman was killed by a shark at Olo'walu, and after that more attacks occurred there over the years.)

Anyway, other than the nostalgia factor, this novel did nothing much for me. None of the characters were fleshed out. Pali Moon is the heroine, and I had no idea how old she was or what she looked like or if I cared about her or not. The mystery didn't make much sense and wasn't all that interesting. I should have been surprised by the ending, or have guessed it, but I was so uninvested my reaction was, okay so that happened. I wouldn't read any others in the series.

    When rich and spoiled mainland socialite, Lisa Marie Prescott, walked into Pali Moon’s ‘Let’s Get Maui’d’ wedding shop and asked Pali to plan a wedding, despite the fact that the groom-to-be had been missing at sea for over a week, Pali’s first inclination was to decline. But, with the unrelenting rain putting a damper on business, Pali’s having trouble paying her bills, and an unscrupulous real estate dealer has his eyes on her business. Principles are fine, but a person has to eat, so Pali tak When rich and spoiled mainland socialite, Lisa Marie Prescott, walked into Pali Moon’s ‘Let’s Get Maui’d’ wedding shop and asked Pali to plan a wedding, despite the fact that the groom-to-be had been missing at sea for over a week, Pali’s first inclination was to decline. But, with the unrelenting rain putting a damper on business, Pali’s having trouble paying her bills, and an unscrupulous real estate dealer has his eyes on her business. Principles are fine, but a person has to eat, so Pali takes the job. Things get hinky when she learns that the bride’s father is a gangster who owns a lucrative trash business, and that trash is not the only thing he disposes of, and then the stand-in for the missing groom, his business partner, is found dead, washed up on the beach. Pali is a wedding planner, not a detective, but it looks like the cops aren’t making any headway in solving either case. Pali is left holding the bag, and a lot of unpaid bills. What’s a wedding planner to do? Why, solve the case and help put the bad guys—or gals—away. Maui Widow Waltz by JoAnn Bassett is the first book in the Islands of Aloha mystery series. I’d previously read one of the later books in the series, and was thoroughly amused and entertained by it, so I opened this one with the expectation to be similarly engaged. I was not disappointed. Pali and her weird assortment of friends are just engaging in the premiere issue as in later issues, and as a bonus I got to learn more about our heroine. The author writes about Hawaii like someone who knows the islands well, and makes the people and place come alive. A really good mystery is one that can be read in one sitting, because once you start, you can’t put it down until it’s finished. This one fits the bill.

    One of the reasons I love cozy mysteries so much is because of the rich settings that take me to a different place. Of course, this requires a skilled writer and JoAnn Bassett is most certainly that. Despite living in the southwest, I could feel an ocean breeze while reading this book, it was that well written. I look forward to the next books in the series and highly recommend this one.

    Quick, fun little read. To be honest, my initial choice to read it was because I love the cover. Alas, it's not my genre so I'm not really a fan. Fun and quirky characters, but the plot wasn't quite believable, and I found myself often wishing Pali could get her head on just a smidge straighter and that we could just get on with the show already.

    Cute Story was cute but I struggled with this one. The main issue for me were the character relationships. I’m still unsure of why Steve’s character was there. Second issue for me was story development. It is as if I missed huge chucks of the story and I was left wondering if I skipped pages.

    I have had 3 of the Islands of Aloha Mysteries on my kindle for quite some time, and finally decided to take the plunge. Book 1 was nothing like I had anticipated -- I was thinking a classy, fun, cozy mystery. Instead what I got was a tacky cozy mystery, with several very mean-spirited characters, a fair amount of foul language (gratefully no f-bombs), some inferred sexual conduct, along with other facets that were outside of my personal comfort zone.

    I'm much more of a hardboiled than cozy reader, but we've planned three visits to Maui and had to cancel each time (and this was pre-COVID) so I decided to resort to fiction. Much cheaper but you don't get a T-shirt. I stumbled across these looking for books on Hawaiian Pidgin English. Bassett's novel is surprisingly complex with a lot of local color and a good dose of humor. Strong voice and a likable protagonist. She mentions a lot of the various areas of Maui and a map would've been nice.

    Somewhat silly tale about an irritating bride-to be and a Hawaiian marriage coordinator. The original premise was far-fetched, but accepting that, the action does pick up. There's a very disappointing try for romance that remains distracting and then is awkwardly addressed with a single sentence at the end of the book. Too, the bride is so rude and over the top, only fictional writing would have someone put up with. It was entertaining at times, but not worth recommending.

    I received this free eBook through The Fussy Librarian in exchange for a fair review. This is one of the most original, creative, and suspenseful murder mysteries I have read this year. I enjoyed the character development, intimate tone of the book, and close relationships and liked reading about the detailed descriptions of the beautiful nature in Maui. The story line had so many twists and turns and had such a surprise ending you don’t see coming.
