Read full description of the books Vacations Can Be Murder:This is the second book in the Charlie Parker series by Connie Shelton. I have enjoyed the book and will read others in the series.
Charlie has had a rough few months -- she's a CPA who also owns a detective agency with her brother. So, she's headed for a Hawaii vacation now that tax season is over and her brother is back on duty after being sidelined with a broken leg.
On her very first day there, she takes a helicopter ride and they discover a dead body along the coast. The owner of the helicopter service asks her to help him because the investigator on the case has a serious grudge against him. The owner also has a serious history with the victim - as in he owes him half a million dollars.
I really enjoyed the story -- but -- there are a couple of things that bugged me a bit. They may or may not bother you. I had the audiobook and I can only say that it wasn't particularly slick. I'm sure it was 'professional' in that somebody got paid, but -- you could hear the narrator taking breaths, flipping pages -- and swallowing (regularly). Just when I'd really get into listening - one of those things would occur and drag me out. The narrator had a nice voice, good inflection and read smoothly. The drawbacks just weren't covered up as smoothly as it would have been in something done by Tantor Audio, etc.
I also found myself skipping through the pages and pages of descriptions of Hawaii. Yes, it is a beautiful state. Yes, I would love to visit. But -- I really got tired of all of the descriptions.
So, I'll try at least one more of this series and see how that one goes. If it is more of the same, I'll probably skip the rest of the series.
Read information about the authorMy love of books started with weekly trips to the library as a child and from the moment I learned to read I can't remember a time that I didn't have at least one book going. For the past 25 years, that list has grown to include what I'm reading and what I'm writing at any given time.
I began writing my Charlie Parker series when my husband and I lived on Kauai, then continued them in my home state of New Mexico. Charlie lives in Albuquerque and manages to travel to a variety of locations, wherever her investigation business and her husband's helicopter business take them. My second series featuring Samantha Sweet, the 50-ish woman who breaks into houses for a living, is set in Taos, New Mexico.
In addition to reading and writing, I've traveled quite a lot, taught writing courses, and been a speaker at a whole lot of mystery conventions and writing conferences. In my spare time I also love to paint, draw, cook and spend time at the beach.
