Another outstanding Murder She Wrote Book: Aloha Betrayed

"Aloha Betrayed" by Jessica Fletcher and Donald Bain is another great book in the Murder She Wrote series and I highly recommend it.
It's a great story, characters, with a feel for Hawaii ! 
  I (Rob) have read almost all in the series and this is yet another outstanding story with great characters that will keep you guessing until the end. Jessica Fletcher finds herself investigating the murder of someone she met briefly and thought highly of.  There are a number of possible suspects all of which will keep you guessing. As always, the author(s) make you feel like you're in the setting (of Hawaii in this case) and give you a taste of the culture, too. The characters are well-developed, too. You can never go wrong reading a Murder She Wrote book in the entire series and this is confirmation of that.

BOOK SUMMARY: Jessica is on the Hawaiian island of Maui, giving a lecture at Maui College on community involvement in police investigations—a subject she knows well. Her co-lecturer is legendary retired detective Mike Kane, a behemoth of a man who shares his love of Hawaiian lore, legends and culture with Jessica.
   Sadly, all the talking stops when the body of a colleague is found at the rocky foot of a cliff.
   Mala Kapule was a botanist and popular professor at the school, known for her activism and efforts on behalf of the volcanic crater Haleakala. The high altitude crater is already the site of an observatory, but plans to place the world’s largest solar telescope there split the locals, with Mala fiercely arguing to preserve the delicate ecology of the area. Was someone trying to muffle the protestors? Or was Mala’s killer making a more personal statement?
   Now, it’s up to Jessica, along with Mike, to uncover who was driven to silence the scientist…and betray the true meaning of Aloha.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
