    Ukulele Murder presents a unique storyline in a tropical setting with amusing characters. It’s a fast and humorous light mystery read. I found myself chuckling many times and I even outright giggled hysterically throughout the Bamboobs wedding. The only negative is that the book could have used another proofread as there was one scene that didn’t flow well due to contradictions. Aside from that, this was a fun and entertaining start to this highly enjoyable series.

    The first book in the Aloha Lagoon series. This book features Ukulele player Nani Johnson. I am a big fan of Leslie Langtry and this book did not disappoint.

She was born in Kansas to parents of Irish and German descent, but her mother has always had a fascination for Hawaii, hence her only daughter’s name.

But the three ukulele professionals already in place are all Hawaiian and do not welcome any competition from a haole. When one of them is murdered, suspicion turns to Nani. This is just bad. The writing is hackneyed, the dialogue is tortured, the plot is ridiculous, and none of the characters is believable … well maybe Pastor Dan, who dresses as Elvis to perform weddings in the Blue Hawaii Wedding Chapel, is believable. I was particularly irritated by Nani’s internal dialogue, and all the animal similes (e.g. “like a rabid hyena” or “bug-eyed iguana”). Even worse, in my opinion, is the lame attempt at humor in re Nani’s mother’s alcoholism. Alcoholism is *never* funny. It’s a disease that hurts not only the person suffering from it, but everyone around him/her. Making light of the number of mai tais or running out of rum or passing out is just plain not funny. Shame on Langtry for even trying to make it so. Ah, well … it was a fast read and satisfied several challenges … but I’ll never get that time back.

    Finally, I’ve gotten back into my audiobook groove again, and as my first book back, I chose Ukulele Murder by Leslie Langtry; which marks my first cosy mystery from this author … I was not disappointed.

Set in the fictional township of Aloha Lagoon, Hawaii, Ukulele Murder provided a wonderful, tropical escape from the rapidly declining temperatures. The way that the author described the beauty and sense of community of the Hawaiian Islands sounded perfectly ideal. As a listener/reader, I could imagine what the area looked like as I read. Furthermore, what helped enhance the community, was the cast of characters who all came across as believable and realistic. It was easy to relate to the characters and feel various emotions regarding them as the story progressed (ie. my frustration with Nani's mum). In terms of the actual mystery, I was easily able to guess the outcome. However, despite this, I found myself binge-listening to this story; enjoying the twists and turns on the way to the resolution. Finally, in regards to narration, I believe that Susan Marlowe did a splendid job telling the story. Although, I did notice that she pronounced words that included a 't' a bit oddly which I found slightly jarring - but that is only a minor nitpick really. Overall, Ukulele Murder was a delightful cosy mystery to get me back into the swing of things. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book to other fans of the genre. My only regret is that the rest of the series isn't on Audible yet. Please note that this book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review

    2.5* Not much depth and I was hoping to get more of an island feel. The mystery was mediocre at best, and there were just too many instances/situations that just didn't work for me. Also, the sentence structure and verbiage had no depth...almost juvenile. Looks like many enjoyed it, but to me just too shallow in character development, story development, and the use of language/storytelling.

    I think I would have enjoyed this much more if it had been written in normal tense instead of present. That always bothers me to the point of my brain needing to turn each verb into past tense to make sense for me. Maybe that's weird, but I can't help it. That aside, it was a fun mystery, the first cozy I've ever read that took place in Hawaii. I know this series has several authors, so I might try out another of them sometime.

This is a new series and unlike most will have a new author for each book. Leslie Langtry has set the bar high. After the death of her husband Harriet Johnson, who loves all things Hawaiian and believes herself to be a reincarnation of a Hawaiian princess packs up and with her daughter Nani moves to Kauai. Nani is a Julliard trained musician who fell in love with the Ukulele and now wants to do more than Bar Mitzvahs, gigs and the local wedding chapel and teach kids. Nani's mother wants nothing more for her daughter to get married so she is always setting her up on blind dates. This time the date led to a handsome man who's mother is just as far off the beam as Nani's. Of course maybe a livingroom full of coconuts with eyes dressed in grass skirts is your idea of HGTV's new decorating style, then I'm sorry. After a concert where #2 uke player and Nani have words he is found murdered and Nani is at the top of the list of suspects. After to more murders, Nani along with her best friend Binny and new love interest Nick get into high gear to solve the murders. For me this book goes on my re-read list. I could close my eyes and I was in Kauai again but most of all I loved the characters. Not only did they have depth and personality I found myself talkinf and yelling at them in my mind, ok sometimes out loud, which I do with very few authors' characters. So if you want a fun read with quirky characters this is the book for you.

    It was fun to read this one because of ties we have in Hawaii. The descriptions of the weather, ocean, and scenery definitely let me know that it's time go back soon and linger for a while! Had the right amount of intrigue leading to the denouement, though one of the perpetrators was easy enough to figure out early on. The wedding chapel pastor was a hoot, the heroine a strong go-getter with loyal friends. A quick, easy read.

    I cannot think and say enough good things about this first book in a new series. The characters are adorable, the humor is LOL cute and funny, the location is dreamy, and the mystery keeps you on your toes. I love the comaraderie between Nani, Nick and Binny. They make a terrific trio, unlike the Terrible Trio of Nani's ukulele competitors. Pastor Dan Pressley is very comical as a Elvis-impersonator pastor for the Blue Hawaii Wedding Chapel.

Since this Aloha Lagoon series features different characters who live and work at the Aloha Lagoon resort, who knows how long it will be before we revisit with Nani, Nick and Binny again. Whenever it will be, I hope it won't be too long but I will be there with wings on! I gave this a perfect 5 star rating.

    I really enjoyed the setting for this book. However I did take some time to warm up to the characters and the mystery was weak. What I enjoyed: * The setting is beautiful and who know that ukulele playing was so competitive * Binny is a great friend * Loved Pastor Dan and there were some funny weddings What could have been better: * Nani seems a bit uncaring of her mother's issues * Insta-love (view spoiler)[plus Nani was acting like a teenager - does he really like me that much? Is it too soon? (hide I really enjoyed the setting for this book. However I did take some time to warm up to the characters and the mystery was weak.

    I'm not sure what to say about this one. There was so much that just didn't work for me. But I will give the series another shot because each book is written by a different author.

    A very good first mystery, this story takes place on the island of Lanai in Hawaii, and features a ukulele player as a main character. When two of her rivals for business are murdered, she is framed and the police are looking no further to find the culprit. She must clear her name and find the true murderer before she is the next victim.

Each book written centers around the resort and introduces you to the culture, the food, the music, the people, the sun, the sand and murder...... In Ukulele Murder you are introduced to Nani Johnson who plays the ukulele. She works at the Blue Hawaii Wedding Chapel, gives lessons to a handful of students, lives with her crazy mother and is being set up for murder !! "The Terrible Trio" as she calls them are local ukulele musicians who she doesn't really know that well but cannot stand them....which is okay because none of them like her or even each other. But someone is killing them and making it look like Nani did it. Ukulele is a serious business on the island and one worth killing over !!! Nani with the help of her best friend, Binny and her "future" boyfriend Nick decide to solve the murders themselves. After all Detective Ray is taking his sweet old time doing it because it looks like he believes Nani did it. You will want to grab a mimosa and some sunscreen because once you start you will not be able to stop !! There is so much to love in these books you will be a HUGE fan from the start !!! You will never want to leave the resort !!

    I love Hawaii, music, and mysteries and I feel like this book was written for me to enjoy! And enjoy I did! This had a little of everything, much more than mysteries. Ms Langtry's imagery of the island of Kauai was superb. I could visualize the banyan trees, the flowers, the rocky seascape, the ocean, the balmy weather, and even the sunsets and sunrises.

(I didn't know Juillard had guitar majors these days, let alone a way to get a degree involving the ukulele!) I felt like the descriptions of various instruments, musical compositions, and the professor's office all were researched and accurate. I loved the scheming mothers, the handsome botanist who made you wonder if he was for real or not, and the ukulele students that came to Nani's home. Each murder or crime that was obviously tried to implicate Nani, was full of twists and turns. The complexity was amazing, and impressive. I know this series is to be continued by various authors, however I can't help but wish there could be a follow-up story about Nani and Nick. In any case, you won't want to miss this exciting book by a wonderful author.

After playing for a bar mitzvah, Nani goes to a concert of the top ukulele musician on the island, Alohalani, where she runs into the two other native ukelele musicians, Kua and Leilani, both of whom are antagonistic towards Nani for not being native Hawaiian and, if truth be told, for being a better musician than they are.

    Leslie is a very talented writer... she made this book into a picture window that I just looked through to discover a whole new world! The descriptions were so vivid and the characters very robust. I am decidedly happy I picked Ukulele Murder up at a sale. The only thing missing was the Cabana boy bringing me my drink on the beach! This is a great Cozy Mystery and I look forward to reading more in this series.

    Fun. Easy. Simple. Mystery is a little predictable (although there were enough red herrings that I had suspected more than one character of being the murderer). I enjoyed it enough to continue on with the series.
