Louise, a mail carrier in Kaneohe, Hawaii, searches for Conchita Santos, an elderly customer on her delivery route who has mysteriously vanished. Louise encounters a murderer, who stalks her, but she get the better of him and solves the mystery of the missing woman…and two other unsolved police cases.

Hooked from the first page, I didn’t want to stop reading until the end. The book has murder, suspense, romance, star struck characters and friends that couldn’t be different from each other. I loved it!

The author takes you on a journey to find a killer, and just when you think you know who it is…it isn’t. Well written, it ends with a shocker that I didn’t see coming. Everyone and everything isn’t what it appears to be.

This is the first book by this author I’ve read. Her 2nd book, which happens to be the 2nd book in the Louise Golden Mystery Series, is How Far Is Heaven and just came out in February. I plan on reading it as soon as I can.

  1. Oh my, a letter carrier with all those skills. Bravo for her. it does sound very good.

  2. Hi Vicki,

    Like all the best heroines Louise sounds too good to be true, but then this kind of escapism is right up my street, so I am sure to enjoy it.

    The eye right in the centre of that cover is rather ‘spooky’, makes me feel like a miniature person being watched by someone lifesize!

    Thanks for the recommendation and the nice review,

    Yvonne

    • I agree Yvonne! Every night when I was through reading I’d put it on my nightstand. Every time I woke up during the night it was “staring” at me, so I ended up putting my cell phone over the eye so I couldn’t see it.

  3. […] I absolutely love this series, and can’t wait for the next book to come out. You can read my review of the first book here. […]
