Bidulka touches on a variety of serious issues ... while neatly weaving these strands into an engaging mystery. -- Quill & Quire
About the Author
Anthony Bidulka is an award-winning writer who, like his protagonist, lives a big life in a small city on the Canadian Prairies. He also loves to travel the world—meeting people, sampling local foods, walking sun-drenched streets, making good use of swim-up bars, and being awed. Please visit his website at www.anthony bidulka.com. This is the sixth book in his Russell Quant mystery series.
Top Customer Reviews
Set mainly in Saskatoon, Aloha, Candy Hearts jumps throughout the city and it's history deeper than any has before. As well, the book expands on Russell's romantic life, says a final goodbye to a previous character and introduces a few more memorable ones. The series keeps getting better as it goes on. The ending was something straight out of Hollywood, and I don't mean that in a cliched or bad way. I had a lump in my throat as I read the final page and any book that can do that to you, is worth keeping.
In Aloha, Candy Hearts, detective Russell Quant is proposed to on the first page. This has to be one of the most unexpected ways to begin a crime novel. But as usual with this long-running series, Bidulka is here to tell us that his tales are not like anyone elses. And thank goodness for that.
The mystery doesn't take long to get rolling, beginning with a brutal murder of a sweet old man, involving a famous writer, an archivist, a long-dead Olympic hero, and seven dogs hilariously named after the Sound of Music children.
Bidulka continues to write at top form. Sit back and take in a hot summer afternoon with Aloha, Candy Hearts. You won't regret it.
