Three Amigos Summer Reading Club–Island Cozy


                         Welcome to the Three Amigos Summer Reading Club.


Welcome (1)


This week’s theme for our Summer Reading Club is Island Cozies.  My pick for this week is  Maui Madness by Kathi Daley.   It is the seventh book in her Zoe Donovan Series.  I have read all the books in this series and it is really good.





Come for the murder stay for the romance.

Recipes included.

Maui Madness is book 7 in the popular Zoe Donovan Cozy Mystery series. Set in Maui, Zoe and the gang become involved in a kidnapping, murder, and search for a sunken treasure while on vacation in the tropical paradise. Join the gang as they dine in popular restaurants, go shopping, try surfing, and make new friends only to have to decide who they can trust and who may be hiding more than it would appear.  (Goodreads)


My Review:

Maui Madness by Kathi Daley was a great cozy read. Since I’ve read all the other books in the Zoe Donovan Mystery series, I was a little concerned that this book would not be taking place in Ashton Falls, the home town cozy setting the other books took place in. I had no reason to be concerned. The descriptive writing of the Hawaiian setting made you feel that you were actually there. The setting and traditions were characterized by someone who had first-hand knowledge of Hawaii. This added another level to the reading and made you want to be there to see for yourself where everything was taking place. The cast of characters continue to be well- developed and there were some unexpected things happening in their lives, making it a must to continue reading the series. As usual, the mystery was well thought out and not easily solved. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well-written cozy mystery. Wherever Zoe and the gangs lives take them, Kathi Daley will make it a fantastic adventure. Can’t wait to read about the next chapter in their lives
