First, I would like to say thank you to the wonderful author for providing me with this book through a first-reads giveaway. Thank you!

This book has it all: a murder mystery full of suspense, a kindling romance, a vacation in paradise, Harry Potter references, and a quite unorthodox guardian angel.

From the very beginning, I found it very easy to get attached to Jaswinder, whose life seems to be ruled by Murphy's Law: anything that can go wrong probably will. Being forced to fly from her home in San Fransisco out to Maui to bail her grandmother out of jail soon becomes the least of her problems as Jaswinder gets wrapped up in a whirlwind of adventure, both good and bad.

This book is a thrill-ride of fun that will leave you guessing at every twist and turn, and longing for a beach and a piña colada.

A fantastic read!
