About this ebook

From USA Today bestselling author Beth Prentice comes a disaster of a wedding in paradise...

Samantha Reynolds' life in Aloha Lagoon has just become perfect. Her boyfriend Casey has asked her to marry him, and with Casey’s family in town for a few weeks, it's the perfect opportunity to throw a surprise wedding! The only problem is that on such short notice their wedding planner can only do so much. Especially when their resort is already overbooked with a reality TV personality and his entourage. While Sam has her doubts about pulling this off when she meets the combative last-minute caterer her planner hired, she swaps her flip flops for stilettos and makes her way down the aisle anyway.

Only before she can say "I Do," the caterer is found dead—face down in their wedding cake!

Suddenly things go from marriage to murder, and Sam is at the center of it all. With the police looking at her wedding planner as the number one suspect, Casey’s mother shouting about bad omens and doing her best to convince Casey to go home to England, Sam knows that if she’s going to tie the knot with the man of her dreams, she must find the real killer and prove them all wrong.

But can she find a murderer, convince Casey that his mother is wrong, and plan a whole new wedding before the truth catches up with them all? Or will Sam be the next victim? This may not be the happily ever after she was expecting...

Tidal Wave will have you deciding to elope! There is the blatant disapproval from the groom's mother, an overbooked venue, a reality TV star and his entourage, and the caterer face down in the wedding cake! Ms. Prentice has again written a delightfully twisted tale for the reader's enjoyment. There are so many suspects, possible alibis and more, I was almost tempted to make my own murder board! I know better than to start reading an Aloha Lagoon mystery at night. It was about 5 am when I finished but well worth the lost sleep!

Sam and Casey's plan to surprise everyone with their wedding didn't exactly go how they would have liked, with the caterer murdered and ending up in the wedding cake! No one to leave a mystery alone, especially one so personal to her, Sam begins her own investigation of the murder. I enjoyed this trip back to Aloha Lagoon. This was a light, easy read, and I couldn't quite figure out what was really going on, which made it fun for me!

USA Today bestselling author Beth Prentice was born in Manchester, England, but after moving backwards and forwards across the world 13 times in 14 years she decided at the age of 18 that Australia was to be her home. She now lives on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia where every day is a good one. She is the lucky mother of two grown up children, and, along with er ever-patient husband, she is the proud but sometimes flustered owner of four dogs, a cat, and a canary. She has always had a love of reading, and even though her background is in accounting, she has now discovered her love of writing. Her main wish is to write books you can sit back, relax with, and escape from your everyday life...and ones that you walk away from with a smile! When she's not writing you will usually find her at the beach with a coffee in hand, pursuing her favorite pastime—people watching!
