Product Description

From Library Journal

The death of Henrie O's husband six years ago could be murder.
Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Booklist

Journalist Richard Collins died in a tragic accident in Hawaii six years ago. Now his widow, Henrietta O'Dwyer "Henrie O" Collins has received an anonymous message implying that Richard was murdered. Henrie O, who has played amateur sleuth before, knows she won't rest until she learns the truth. At the time of his death, Richard was visiting one of his oldest friends, Belle Ericcson. Henrie O has never met Belle but knows her investigation must begin with this woman linked to Richard's past. That means a difficult and ultimately dangerous trip to Hawaii, where she meets some of the possible suspects face to face. Readers can usually count on Hart for a winning writing style, engaging characters, and a clever plot, and her latest is no exception. Despite a slightly sluggish plot this time, and despite Henrie O's oddly exaggerated emotions, Hart fans will find plenty to like in this latest installment in a popular series. Emily Melton

HASH(0xa10c4af8) out of 5 stars Carolyn Hart envelops you in a story. Jan. 31 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Ms. Hart's writing is superb. She catches you in the introduction and pulls you into the search for the truth. Her word pictures of Hawaii are breathtaking and filled my head with the sounds and scents of Ahiahi. I rarely can form an affection for a new series from an already-favorite author, but Henrie O has been a wonderful surprise and I can't wait for more. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

HASH(0xa10c4f60) out of 5 stars Great book!!! Feb. 17 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Six years ago, Henrietta "Henrie O" O'Dwyer Collins' beloved husband, fellow newspaper reporter, Richard, fell to his death off of a cliff in the Hawaiian island of Kauai. When he died, Richard was visiting a close friend, the legendary foreign correspondent, Belle Ericcson, a woman he had bonded with in Nam during the war. Now Henrie O learns that her beloved spouse's death was not an accident, but was apparently cold blooded murdered.
Henrie O is angry and wants vengeance on the perpetrator. She travels to Hawaii to visit Belle, who was her rival for her spouse's affections. She knows that the killer is at a family reunion being hosted on the woman's estate. No matter what she must do or who she must hurt in the process, Henrie O plans to complete her quest of identifying her husband's killer and bringing the individual to justice.
Carolyn Hart proves why she deserves all the awards (winner of the Agatha, Anthony, and Macauley awards for this mystery series) she has garnered. DEATH IN PARADISE: A Henrie O Mystery is one of the author's best mystery novels to date because the book is an enjoyable, exciting and intellectually stimulating who-done-it with a suspenseful ending. This reviewer strongly recommends the entire series, but especially this particular tale.

HASH(0xa10c4edc) out of 5 stars fast-paced, keeps you on your toes Aug. 30 2012
By moderatelymoderate - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this mystery quite a bit. I wasn't sure who the killer was until it was revealed & it was a plausible resolution of who & why.

The book also made me think about keeping secrets. It seems to me that, even though you've promised to keep something secret, your spouse should be an exception IF the spouse is trustworthy & you feel that keeping the secret is hurting your marriage.

One quibble about the novel -- Henrie O seemed to know everything about the plant life of Hawaii. It would have been more realistic if she didn't.
HASH(0xa10c4cf0) out of 5 stars Hart's Best Yet Oct. 14 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Understand, I am a fan of Carolyn Hart and have read every one of her books. This is one of her very best. No longer is the writing somewhat stilted and the characterization shallow. Here we have a suspenseful, well-reasoned plot with an interesting assortment of characters. The exotic setting of a Hawaiian island is evoked with economic use of adjectives. In fact, this is a very believable story. If you enjoy good solid writing in a conservative style, you will enjoy this book.
