This is book 3 in the Louise Golden mystery series by Laurie Hanan, and I would have a tough time deciding which book I like more, all three are really good. They all kept my attention, had a wide range of great characters, unusual scenarios, and they all kept me guessing. Plus, you get a peek into life in Hawaii! Even with it’s tropical awesomeness, there are still bad things that happen, and bad people, just like every where on the planet.

I loved that Emmeline & Jackie were still in the se

The third of the Louise Golden, Oahu mail carrier series has more twists and turns than the road to Hana, Maui. But if you really wnat to know what goes on in our Hawaii Paradise..... you'll just have to read it! Otherwise, we are keeping it a secret.

This is a book with great bones, but too much meat hanging off them (sorry, since many of the characters are vegetarians that might be a bad comparison). I can tell that the author put a lot of herself into the book and into the characters, particularly the main one. That's admirable but in this instance I think it gets in the way. There's a lot of description, particularly of meditation and its surrounding practices that doesn't further and wasn't necessary to the storyline.

It's also a book tha

What did I know about Hawaii before reading this book? I used to watch the police detective show "Hawaii Five-O" as a teenager and I recently enjoyed a George Clooney movie that took place there (I remember the actor running frantically down a street). Other than that, I pictured Hawaii as sandy beaches, lava-filled volcanoes, island hopping boat rides, and girls dancing with garlands of flowers around their necks. In short, paradise.

Reading this book I realized that there's a regular sort of li

I had the honor of proof-reading this exciting new Louise Golden mystery and wanted to be the first to recommend it to readers both familiar and unfamiliar with Laurie Hanan's excellent series. As with any excellent series, a reader gets a full menu of delights from each of the three books whether or not they've read the preceding installments. 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 ...more

Laurie Hanan is like a magician with her plots, and Another Day in Paradise is no exception. She keeps her reader absorbed in the characters so you never expect what happens next. Like the first two Louise Golden mysteries, this one is easy to read and hard to put down. If you like a good murder mystery that keeps you guessing, this is it. It has a perfect ending. - Franki deMerle, authorFive Flowers

For a light mystery, this is good value. Fun but with just enough weight to keep it from blowing away with the tropical breezes in this novel set in Hawaii. Louise Golden is a mail carrier who seems to keep stumbling on special deliveries of the unwanted kind. I read it over the holidays when I was too stressed to concentrate on anything heavy. It was just the ticket.

A great mystery! The plot was placed perfectly to keep me guessing. I definitely did not see the ending sneaking up on me. Louise is charming and admirable and I look forward to reading more of her stories!
