2014 LEFTY Finalist Best Humorous MysteryWhen Laurel McKay attends a Hawaiian wedding, her vacation soon becomes more deadly than the calorie count in her daiquiri. Her post-wedding holiday upends after a beautiful hula dancer is found dead on the rocks below the oceanfront restaurant owned by Laurel's brother and sister-in-law.When a family member is arrested for the murder, Laurel is plunged into a mystery where exotic Big Island locations--a coffee plantation, black sand beaches and a volcano-reveal their deadly side. And where is her hunky on-again/off-again boyfriend detective when she needs him?Laurel zip-lines and four-wheels her way through the island paradise unearthing long hidden secrets. Will ingenuity and pluck be enough? Or will this hula be her last?"Laurel McKay could serve as the poster girl for a normal suburban soccer mom except for one thing. She's a magnet for murder, even on vacation in Hawaii. Cindy Sample has created a heroine all gals can identify with and admire as she keeps going with wit and determination, even in the face of a homicide arrest. Sample's stories combine humor, romance and mystery, a recipe that yields a great book. Kick back with a tall, cool drink and enjoy this 5 star read!" Mary Beth McGee, National Reviewer, Examiner.com"If Laurel McKay shows up at your party, watch out for bodies! The zany mortgage banker with a penchant for murder does it again when she's in Hawaii for her friend's wedding. Throw in lots of sexy dancers, pots full of Kona coffee and a good-looking boat captain and Cindy Sample takes you off on a fun tropical romp with just enough mayhem and romance! It's another great read!" Michele Drier, author of the Amy Hobbes mysteries and The Kandesky Vampire Chronicles"DYING FOR A DAIQUIRI is the perfect title for Cindy Sample's newest laugh-laced who-done-it. Her delectable concoction will make you hanker to visit Hawaii, request life-size posters of the two hunks vying for heroine Laurel McKay's kisses, and laugh out loud at this single mom's humor and pluck-even when her life's hanging by a thread. I give five stars-or maybe it should it be five cherries-to this cocktail of a vacation adventure, sexy interludes, raucous laughs, and mystery." Linda Lovely, Author of the Marley Clark series "Calamity strikes again while Laurel McKay is vacationing in Hawaii and attending a wedding with her family and friends. When a beautiful Hawaiian is murdered and the cops arrest a family member, our intrepid heroine has to get involved. The humor tickles even as the chills abound. For murder, mayhem and laughs among the coconut palms, read DYING FOR A DAIQUIRI, the third book in Cindy Sample's acclaimed Laurel McKay series!"

I have not yet read this book.

I don't usually read cozies, because I generally prefer my mysteries to be more hardboiled. But when I spotted this one on sale on one of the e-letters I get and saw that the heroine's first name is the same as mine--Laurel--I had to buy it. There's not many of us, so we Laurels have to stick together! Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It's a really good mystery--I usually figure out the solution before the end, but I missed it big time with this one. The identity of the culprit never occurred to me, but when it was revealed, it made sense. Besides being a good mystery, the book is very funny. Ms. Sample is a witty writer who knows how to make the reader chuckle and sometimes laugh out loud.

I really enjoyed the descriptions of the Hawaiian scenery and life. I've never been there so I can't vouch for the accuracy of said descriptions, but they certainly sounded believable. BTW, this is the third in the series. I haven't read any of the others, but it wasn't necessary to enjoy this book. It stands on its own. I do intend to start at the beginning with the first book now that I've found a cozy mystery series that I like.

All in all, a good read, even if it didn't have the graphic violence and hard language I usually prefer in my mysteries! :-) It's good to take a break and read a G-rated book once in a while! ( )

Laurel's in hot water--again? Yep, and she's as hilarious as ever in Dying for A Daiquiri. Her best friend, Liz, is getting married on the Big Island Of Hawaii, and Laurel and her mother fly over to attend the wedding and the reception at her brother's beach side restaurant and bar. But things start to go south when her sister-in-law snarls something to the effect that that Dave is cheating. No, say it ain't so! Not Dave!
Smart, funny, and a great way to enjoy Hawaii from your arm-chair. Highly recommended! ( )
