The death of Henrie O's husband six years ago could be murder.
Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
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.

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!!
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.

I thought I knew "who done it" in Paradise based on the plot of Riverwalk but I was way off the mark; refreshing in itself. I couldn't put it down. Read morePublished on April 21 2000 by a wood
