You’re invited to the launch of Homicide in Hawaii, the new Emily Swift travel mystery on Saturday, Nov. 18. I’ll be signing books from noon to 2 p.m. at Once Upon a Crime Mystery Books, 604 West 26th Street in Minneapolis. This book is the perfect gift for any mystery lover on your list, who is yearning for a winter getaway to a tropical beach. An engaging mystery unfolds in the beautiful setting of Hawaii’s Oahu island.
Travel writer Emily Swift looks forward to a romantic trip with her boyfriend Jack. But when her friend Amanda’s dead body is found at an ancient Hawaiian ritual site she’s caught up in a murder investigation. Did Amanda find out about her husband’s girlfriend? Who is the father of Amanda’s goddaughter Kari? Why was Amanda obsessed by her family’s role in the history of Hawaii? What secrets lurk in old letters and photos?
As Emily delves into the past to find the killer, she finds herself in danger and realizes a Hawaiian tourist attraction may be her grave as well as Amanda’s.
