    A humorous mystery in which Nani finds herself trying to clear her name while dealing with her kooky mother and hosting her cousin and guest from Kansas. I liked seeing island life that wasn’t resort living. Andy and Binny were an enjoyable addition to the cast of characters and I would enjoy another installment with them. A fun read that had me giggling. I won’t forget Nani’s nicknames!

(Summary via Goodreads) Not one ....or even two murders but three !!! And Nani Johnson is found standing over ALL three of them !!! Wow Leslie Langtry sure knows how to bring the heat to the Aloha Lagoon Mystery series !! Ukulele Deadly by Leslie Langtry is the seventh book in this series and even though I am not reading them in order, I am not missing a thing !! In Ukulele Deadly you are hanging around with Nani Johnson. She plays the ukulele, teaches lessons, plays at the Aloha Lagoon Resort and the Blue Hawaii Wedding Chapel, hangs out with her boyfriend Nick and trys to keep tabs on her somewhat crazy mother. Her life on the island is not paradise but to her it is pretty nice !! That is until one night she is walking back to her car after picking up dinner from the Loco Moco Cafe and comes across a man lying on the ground behind her car. Within seconds the man dies and Nani seems to be the main suspect. And when they find out the deceased is from her hometown in Kansas, it's almost an open and shut case. Lucky for Nani she calls her cousin Andy who still lives in Kansas to see if he may know the deceased man whose ID says he is Ed Hopper. Fortunately Andy does know him and he is still alive and is the new police office in town. Andy and Ed hop on a plane see what is going on and try to find out who the deceased "Ed Hopper" really is. When a singer who works with Nani is the second person killed and again Nani is standing over the body, she decides to look into these deaths. So along with Nick, her friend Binny and her cousin, Nani tries to solve the murders and clear her name.....which isn't easy considering everyone on the island seem to think its cool and she's even been given nicknames and someone is selling t-shirts..... You cannot help but continue to fall in love with Aloha Lagoon, the island and the residents and workers even if people are dying.... because you know that when you get to the end of one of these books, the murders will be solved and you will have made new friends and your stay at Aloha Lagoon Resort will be extended when you pick up another in this series......

    When I can't be back in Hawaii I love reading stories that put me there. This one fit the bill very well. A good mystery with lead characters that already felt like friends from the first in the series (Ukulele Murder).

    Nani majored in ukulele, at Juilliard no less, and now spends her days playing it in Hawaii. Life is good, even if her mom is somewhat wacky. Ok, a lot wacky. But then Nani stumbles across a man dying in a parking lot. And another body at her work, almost on stage. And then, well, you get the idea! Unfortunately for Nani, she is the prime suspect and the detective in charge did not graduate at the top of his class. In fact, no help would be better than his help as far as Nani is concerned.

    Nani is settling down after all the hassle she had in the book Ukulele Murder, she and Nick are happy together and whilst he Mum is still odd (decorating wise!) that seems to be all.  Then Nani comes across a man who dies in front of her, and it isn't natural causes! Oh and apparently he is from the same town in Kansas that Nani and her mother are from. The next thing is the police officer from Felix (where Nani was from) and Nani's cousin Andy have arrived in Hawaii.

    I really enjoyed this book. The author had me laughing so much! She made me feel as if I was really in Hawaii. And the closeness of the friends made me a little jealous!

    Being the first book in the Aloha Lagoon series, it certainly delivers. For me, this has been the strongest book in the series -- with a very well structured mystery and very endearing cast of characters. Honestly, I'm beginning to think this series could benefit by culling the number of leading ladies in the series and concentrating on 3-4 of the best - including Nani of Ukelele Deadly.

    Would people please stop dying at her feet Fabulous! So much better than the first book. Popping out for groceries should not involve a man dying at your feet. With more bodies turning up, a double identity question, a mother who suddenly behaves differently, can she sort out the real culprits. A great fun read.

    Too many murders? I enjoyed the book but it almost seemed as if there was too much stuff going in it. How can one person be accused of so many murders and still be running around free? I did enjoy the characters and setting, as always, though.

Can Nani stay out of jail long enough to unmask the real killer…or will the police pin it all on her? This is part of the Aloha Lagoon mystery series based of mostly stand alones, but I would recommend at least reading Ukulele Murder before this one because it has the same charcters in both. I am glad I figured it out and read them in the right order. Nani has the worst luck of anyone ever. Who gets framed for so many murders in such a short time? lol I really like Nani, even with her crazy bad luck lol She's funny and kind of down on herself but I get it since she keeps getting framed for murder. I love Nanis mom. Omg! She is hilarious. I love all her crazy decorating ideas. I love every time Nani comes home and something else crazy is decorating her house. I'm not sure I could handle her mom because wow she's a lot to handle. I didn't figure the mystery out. There was so much going on that I had no idea what had happened. I got to find out the truth when it was finally revealed and I was surprised and I enjoyed the thrilling twists and turns. It's a good cozy mystery and I enjoyed it so much I hope there will be more of Nanis stories to come. She might need her own series Since she's now the infamous Ukulele Undertaker.

    Great They just keep getting better. Leslie Langtry has another hit. This book is part of the Lagoon Mysteries but can be a standalone. Just love this book, it is witty, smart, and mysterious.

    This is the second book Leslie Langtry has written about Nani and her crazy mother in Aloha Lagoon. Nani is a Ukulele player extraordinaire who trained at Julliard School of Music. She move to Kauai with her mother from a small town near Wichita, Kansas called Felix. While working at the Aloha Lagoon resort and the Blue Hawaii Wedding chapel as featured musician, she has become somewhat of a murder magnet. During the course of this book, there are three apparently unrelated murders in the resort This is the second book Leslie Langtry has written about Nani and her crazy mother in Aloha Lagoon. Nani is a Ukulele player extraordinaire who trained at Julliard School of Music. She move to Kauai with her mother from a small town near Wichita, Kansas called Felix. While working at the Aloha Lagoon resort and the Blue Hawaii Wedding chapel as featured musician, she has become somewhat of a murder magnet. During the course of this book, there are three apparently unrelated murders in the resort and wedding chapel. The only thing in common is they all happened quickly and in close proximity to Nani. Fortunately, even though Detective Ray thinks Nani is a murderer, her friends don't. In fact her cousin and the police officer who's ID was stolen by the first victim come to Kauai to help straighten things out. Her boyfriend Nick and best friend Binney also join in the sleuthing. Meanwhile in case Nani doesn't have enough on her mind, her mother is having health issues and the wedding chapel is having some severe problems. Spread thin enough to crack, Nani and friends manage to give Detective Ray a good run for the money in detective work. There are twists and turns enough to keep you guessing up to the very end. Leslie Langtry writes fabulous and funny characters who make you wish they were real people you could meet. Her book are well written with delicious details and laughs when you least expect it. I have never been disappointed by this author and am sure you won't be either! It is a stand alone story, but you might enjoy it even more if you read Ukulele Murder first. Besides, you will double your fun that way!
