Mai Tais and Murder

Mai Tais and Murder - J.C.  Long Gabe Maxfield is a paralegal is getting over a relationship that ended two months prior. He moves to Ouha, Hawaii to be closer to his friend and start afresh. What he doesn't expect to do is become involved in a murder investigation with his best friend, Grace Park. The two find Grace's coworker, Carrie Lange, dead in their P.I. office.

Maka Kekoa is an Honolulu PD detective and Gabe's neighbor. Maka and Gabe meet the morning that Carrie is found murdered and it's quite a shock to their system when they see each other at the scene of the crime.

When Grace is suddenly arrested for Carrie's murder. Gabe is at first shocked but knows he has to do something to prove his friend's innocence.

The story was interesting in it's own way. It did take a while for me to warm up to it, a little less that half the story (40%). From there it was smooth sailing and I was thoroughly intrigues and invested in finding out who killed Carrie and why.

I was impressed when Gabe dropped the name of the law firm that he used to work for. I wish there was more shock and revelation involved in the story. It was my favorite part of the book. The chemistry between Gabe and Maka was great. I was curious about what threw Maka to Gabe. It wasn't explained at all why he was so taken at first sight with him. I'm hoping the next installment with dwell more of it. I also hope the case with Delgado will be covered.

A free copy was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.
