Life has changed for Lani over the past eight months and in many ways she is still trying to get a feel for the new normal. The one thing in her life that seems to be going perfectly is her partnership with her father, a retired homicide detective. Pope Investigations has become Lani’s solace during a time when her life is otherwise in complete upheaval>

Things get dicey when she finds a body laid out across the entryway of Pope Investigations. When it looks as if the death of the local food truck owner might be related to the deaths of two other men, both who looked to have been left for Lani to find, she sets out to solve all three murders. Along the way she will reconnect with an old friend, say goodbye to another, and finally begin to understand the role of hope and hopelessness in her life. (Goodreads)


It was good to get to spend some time with Lani and her cousin and friends. I felt like I was visiting with old friends, catching up with what has been going on in their lives. Circumstances have changed for Lani, both professionally and personally, and things did not always work out the way she planned. But that is real life and I thought this made the book seem more realistic.

As is usual for this author, there is more than one mystery to solve. In this case, there are three dead bodies and a missing person. Lani and her dad will have their work cut out for them. There were a lot of clues to sift through and suspects to consider, and when you throw in some twists and turns, the mysteries were not easily solved.

I would recommend this book, and series, to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. You cannot go wrong picking up any of this author’s books.
