Welcome to Aloha Lagoon. An island paradise where you may not make it out alive!
Samantha Reynolds had hoped that moving to the resort town of Aloha Lagoon would be the start of an exciting new life. Sure the start may not be everything she had hoped for—she’s living with her mom, has no job, no income and absolutely no idea what to do next. But it’s a start! Out of options, she decides to take a job she’s a just a little under qualified for—a children’s surfing instructor at the Aloha Lagoon Resort. She can surf…she just doesn’t know how to teach surfing. But that soon becomes the least of her worries.
Throw in two dead bodies, two unexpected inheritances, and one hot bartender, and the heat in Aloha Lagoon has quickly turned up! Samantha just needs to figure that out why her family is involved, control a group of preadolescent kids, keep her mom and brother out of jail, and get the hot bartender to notice her. It couldn’t be that hard could it? With the help of her new friend Alani and some of the quirky residents of Aloha Lagoon, she just may be able to pull it all off…and still keep everybody alive!
Samantha Reynold’s new life in Aloha Lagoon is awesome. She has a great job as a surf instructor at the local resort, a gorgeous boyfriend, bartender Casey Dalton, and a BFF to tell all her secrets to. But when a man from Casey’s past turns up in Aloha Lagoon claiming knowledge of a long lost treasure, life goes from paradise to downright deadly. A body in the rainforest has the police looking squarely at Casey as their number one suspect, and even Samantha has to admit that the evidence against him doesn’t look good. Now it’s up to Samantha and her BFF to find the real killer, decipher the clues to the treasure, and find out just what skeletons are lurking in her suddenly secretive boyfriend’s closet… even if she may not want to meet them!
Samantha Reynolds’ life in Aloha Lagoon feels like it’s finally smooth sailing. She’s settled into her job as the resorts’ surf instructor for children, things are looking good with her boyfriend Casey, and she has an amazing BFF in the local surf shop owner, Alani.
But when a storm hits Aloha Lagoon, Alani’s past comes back to haunt her, and Sam finds her bestie standing over the dead body of her wayward ex-boyfriend. While Sam knows Alani is innocent, the local police aren’t so easily convinced, and Sam realizes it’s up to her to clear Alani’s name and find the real killer before her friend ends up behind bars. Why was Alani’s ex back in town? What was he doing in Alani’s shop after hours? And who is the mysterious raven-haired woman in his life and what does she have to do with it all? Sam is determined to find out…only can she do it before the real killer catches her? Or will Sam’s time in Aloha Lagoon come to a sticky end?
Samantha Reynolds’ life in Aloha Lagoon has just become perfect. Her boyfriend Casey has asked her to marry him, and with Casey’s family in town for a few weeks, it’s the perfect opportunity to throw a surprisewedding! The only problem is that on such short notice, their wedding planner can only do so much. Especially when their resort is already overbooked with reality TV personality and his entourage.
While Sam has her doubts about pulling this off when she meets the combative last-minute caterer her planner hired, she swaps her flip flops for stilettos and makes her way down the aisle anyway. Only before she can say “I Do,” the caterer is found dead—face down in their wedding cake!
Suddenly things go from marriage to murder, and Sam is at the center of it all. With the police looking at her wedding planner as the number one suspect, Casey’s mother shouting about bad omens and doing her best to convince Casey to go home to England, Sam knows that if she’s going to tie the knot with the man of her dreams, she must uncover the real killer and prove them all wrong.
But can she find a murderer, convince Casey that his mother is wrong, and plan a whole new wedding before the truth catches up with them all? Or will Sam be the next victim?
This may not be the happily ever after she was expecting…
