ABOUT KAY HADASHI NOVELS
Guess who’s coming back to Kay Hadashi novels? Maile Spencer!
She’s served her time in the Army Nurse Corps and will take a rest before going home to Honolulu to resume her career there. But first, she wants to have a few adventures–including those of the heart. Watch for her new series of cozy (and romantic) stories that take her around the world, and around the islands! Due sometime in Fall of 2021.
The beginning of the Travels and Travails of Maile Spencer:
Gina Santoro is a young Clevelander, and while still in police training, finds a little too much trouble while out on patrol one night. Making the tough decision to step away from the family trade of police work, she eventually finds herself in Honolulu working in the landscape business. But trouble catches up to her in the form of a dead body on her front porch one morning. That catapults Gina into a police investigation of her new family, new friends, and even a new enemy or two!
There are better things to do in Hawaii on a sunny day than go on a free skydiving trip. Just ask Gina Santoro while she parachutes into a murder mystery she’ll never forget! Whether it was horrible accident, death by misadventure, or an act of murder, Gina gets a bird’s eye view when a man falls past her, only to perform a world-class belly flop in the ocean from 5000 feet. While police detectives posture, and FBI agents chase their tails, Gina and her sister take the investigation by the horns. Following leads from one end of Honolulu to the other, they discover how complicated a teenaged girl’s life can be while on the run from the government. Gina has a house full of fun when her sister comes for a visit, a runaway moves into a closet, and a glamorous detective asks unanswerable questions. And let’s not forget the crying baby!
Coming soon! Criminal Intent–the last story of Gina’s police adventures in Honolulu. When her mother comes for a visit, life gets complicated with new murders to investigate, and criminals to avoid. When her father drops in, the trouble really starts! Watch for Criminal Intent, due at the end of September.
This new series features Maile Spencer, a young tour guide who finds more trouble than tips when giving tours of her hometown of Honolulu. Get started with AWOL at Ala Moana today!
