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

Henrie O still mourns the loss of her husband Richard. She has always assumed that his death was accidental, but an anonymous note to her implies that he was murdered. She can do nothing but follow up on this note and investigate Richard's death. Doing so involves trips to Texas and Kauai where she confronts Richard's friend Belle whom he was visiting at the time of his death. Henrie O had always been afraid that Richard's involvement with Belle was more than platonic and she vows to find out the truth behind their relationship, as well as the identity of the person who murdered Richard. There are no end of suspects on the island, all of them Belle's family or employees, and Henrie O has her work cut out for her trying to discern which one killed Richard. As always, author Hart crafts a well-written book and this one has an added emotional intensity because of Henrie O's love for her late husband. The setting of Kauai just adds to the ambiance of this excellent mystery.

doesn't mean you are dead - or worse, boring.
Carolyn Hart's series starring Henrietta O'Dwyer "Henrie O" Collins is an excellent and worthy read. Why?
This mystery series offer great characters with believeable dialogue, nice little plot twists, a kiss of humor, and a heroine - Henry O - who is NOT a gal in her 20's or 30's, with a fast mouth, a clumsy foot always determined to trip over one corpse after another, and a love interest that somehow always seems to elude the final stage of commitment - have any of you noticed just how many mystery novels seem to have this same type of heroine?!?
It is difficult to find truly good mysteries where the main character is actually a woman who is over 50, intelligent, clever, sometimes humorous, and even a little grouchy; yet if you are a true fan of mysteries you will know exactly how terrific it is to stumble across heroines like: Henri O, an Amelia Peabody, Mrs. Jeffries, Agatha Raisin, OR a Mrs. Polifax!!

By A Customer on May 20 1999
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The opening sentence of Death in Paradise nearly leapt off the page, pulling me into the story as if I were the one who had just opened that horrible piece of mail. There was never a dull moment and there was nothing in the story that didn't belong. The plot was very well thought out, and set against a breath-taking backdrop, making the reader feel as if he/she were right there with Henri-O looking out over the Hawaiian mountainside from her lanai. Every bit of scenery had a purpose as did all of the characters, who were as easy to visualize as their surroundings. All of the characters were someone each one of us has met at one time or another. They were real. Carolyn Hart has entertained her readers exceptionally well with this story. Through Henri-O, she has not only entertained us but has also taught us that you are never too old to learn something about yourself, good or bad, and grow from it.

This was the first Henrie O book I've read. It won't be the last. I liked Henrie O. She is a strong character who can face her fears and do what needs to be done. In this case, she needs to begin to solve the mystery of her husband's death. So it's off to Hawaii to meet one of her husband's old friends, who is also a lady and thus begins her experience.
This is not like the Carolyn Hart mystery series Death on Demand. The characters are very different and the mystery a bit more dark. Also, she doesn't put in all the references to other mystery novels as she does in her Death on Demand books.
Enjoy.

Remember when - you heard a noise and got behind someone else because you were afraid to go first! Well, I followed "HENRIE O",with that same feeling. BUT, as in "Lover's Lane", Ms. Hart, got me, with all the clues and the "it could be, ANYBODY", the twist was fantastic. I have purchased 3 more Hart books and will eventually read them ALL. I love to read and there are very few Gifted writers, as Ms. Hart. She writes a particular style of mystery books, as good as Christy, and I love her. Thank you, Ms. Hart. M. Strong
