From USA Today bestselling authors Sally J. Smith & Jean Steffens comes deadly trouble on white sandy beaches... Just as travel agent turned reluctant sleuth Gabby LeClair is starting to gain some of the Aloha spirit, a business consortium from Chicago breezes into the Aloha Lagoon resort and offers to buy her business. The offer is tempting...but so is hot helicopter pilot Rick Dawson, making it a difficult decision—one that becomes even more complicated when a dead body is discovered in Gabby's own backyard, and she's suddenly thrust in the middle of a murder investigation! The dead man is a former beachboy attendant from the island. But as Gabby and her friends quickly learn, his colorful past as a professional escort extends from Hawaii all the way to the women of Chicago—including those in the business consortium. With a trail of broken hearts—not to mention jealous rivals—leading up to the beachboy, Gabby tries to uncover just who had it in for the late lothario. Is the female of the species really more deadly than the male? Or has he scorned one too many women for some other man's liking? Gabby treads a fine line as she seeks the truth behind the beachboy's shady past to come face to face with a killer!

Dem Haoles is an innovative and entertaining study of white privilege. Set against the backdrop of Hawaii, Dem Haoles explores how white people or haoles are portrayed and why. The exploration is guided by the concept of images or archetypes, employed to classify and dissect haole representation. Dem Haoles mines normally mundane entertainment vehicles like romantic comedies and action hero dramas and reveals that these artifacts of popular culture are more than mindless entertainment. They are in fact well camouflaged political messaging. The focus on popular culture examined through image analysis makes Dem Haoles entertaining and informative. The examination of popular media is detailed and thorough and will evoke deep nostalgic sentiments. While the insightful analysis of images, its mechanics, and intent will provoke critical thinking. Together this combination makes Dem Haoles a unique and rewarding experience that will both invalidate old perceptions about Hawaii and ruin the simple pleasure of mindless entertainment.

This is a mystery novel about shocking murders that take place during one week at Paradise Palms, a retirement community in Hawaii. The book is part mystery, part irreverent social commentary, and fascinating Hawaiiana. The narrator is Grace Hill, an 84-year-old resident of the Palms. She and her Clue Crew–three sharp and funny ladies–with the help of two Hawaiian policemen solve the mysterious deaths of five elderly residents. The ‘week in hell’ culminates when Grace discovers the naked body of a man at the bottom of the swimming pool. Among the murder suspects are the Palms’ head chef, his wife, the sous chef, a saleswoman, a swimming pool cleaner, and even Grace. As the author raises the lid on retirement home living, beware, there may be an unpleasant odor.
