When wedding planner, Adrielle Pyper, goes to Hawaii to orchestrate a destination wedding, she isn't prepared for what she finds.

After the trauma of her previous event, the beautiful isle of Kauai is the perfect place for Adri to unwind and do what she does best – plan. She even lets herself indulge in the attention of the groom’s handsome brother. But just when everything seems to be perfect, an afternoon snorkeling trip turns to murder when Adri discovers the body of a young woman.

Shaken, but unable to let it go, Adri’s sleuthing leads her into more danger than she could imagine. When a number of “accidents” threaten her own life, it soon becomes apparent that someone will do anything to keep Adri from interfering with their vengeance.

I loved the first book in this series and was excited to read more! Adrielle Pyper, or Adri, went through some traumatic experiences in the first book and she is now in Hawaii to help with a wedding. Things are going well until she's out snorkeling and finds a young woman's body. She can't get her out of her mind and tries to help figure out who she is and what happened to her but someone is determined to keep her from learning the truth.

I love the Hawaiian setting and felt like I was there. There were times that felt peaceful and others that were definitely hectic. I enjoyed the twists and turns along to the way to solving the mystery. There were plenty of suspects and I changed my mind quite a few times as to who the murderer was.  

Adri is torn between two men in this book. She's recently met Jon and takes to him right away. She has some history with Luke, but they haven't always gotten along. I liked both of them but definitely had my favorite and was happy with the choice she made in the end. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment!!
