Another Day in Paradise by Laurie Hanan

Another Day in Paradise by Laurie Hanan Purchase:

    Laurie Hanan has crafted another page-turner, a mystery replete with interesting people, plausible plot twists and several nods to the characters’ evolving histories.

    Dog nappings have doubled on O`ahu over the past year. Brazen thefts of beloved pets from their homes have the community on edge. A beautiful, mysterious Chinese actress is distraught when her Pomeranian is stolen.

    Mail carrier Louise Golden finds the missing pooch, only to learn the actress is suddenly gone, with her belongings. Dogs are disappearing. Street people are being abducted by aliens—or so claims Louise’s homeless friend, Frankie. Clues point in different directions. Nothing adds up.

    A masked man appears out of nowhere and warns Louise to mind her own business. What did he mean? Everyone is a suspect: her boyfriend who tells stories for a living, the ex lover who once betrayed her, the acting coach skilled in the art of deception, the shameless stalker in the yellow Tweety Bird van.

    At the polo field, tempers flare. Someone’s bound to get hurt. Things heat up for Louise, as well, when a sexy Brazilian polo player befriends her. Is he truly a friend, or a rake intent on seducing vulnerable women?

    Can Louise even trust her own spiritual awakening to help her find a path to understanding—or is she faking it and running blindly to a dead end? What will she do when she comes face to face with her greatest fears?

    This latest book is again set on the lovely Island of Oahu and takes our mail-carrier sleuth on an excitement-filled trip which includes a finely crafted mystery and a moving look into our protagonist’s personal life.

    For those who have read the previous two books in this series, the passage of time has produced intriguing changes in many of the continuing characters. For new readers, the completely integrated plot will make you a fan and entice you to catch up on what you’ve been missing. Great job Laurie. You have really hit your stride with this one.

    Review by Carol Stern: Once again, Laurie Hanan hit a home run! Louise Golden takes the reader on a journey that surprises at every turn and keeps one wanting more. An excellent story line with subplots that are intriguing.

    Laurie always amazes me with her in-depth knowledge of the topics she weaves into her writing. This third book in a series of Louise Golden novels is an excellent read and left me wanting the next installment.

    Review by Karen Gorman: Laurie Hanan has crafted another page-turner, a mystery replete with interesting people, plausible plot twists and several nods to the characters’ evolving histories.

    She fleshes out players we’ve met in previous Louise Golden books and places Ms. Golden in positions requiring fortitude and balance. We root for the heroine and understand her motivations. I eagerly await her next adventure!
