Being a resident of Hawai`i, I could not pass up a murder mystery based in Honolulu. It was thrilling while at the same time oddly relaxing to read a story with so many local references....The writing was insightful, observant, emotive and intelligent. Each scene, task, and event was highly detailed and meticulously described....I savored the sense of familiarity as well as the intriguing storyline.

Readers will quickly warm to the protagonist, Natalie, her cat Miss Una, and the many other memorable characters. The pacing of the narrative was perfect. The characters were well-developed, the storyline plausible, and the author's descriptive writing skill will leave readers wanting more Natalie Seachrist and Miss Una stories.

I live in California and have a hope to one day visit Hawai`i, I enjoyed reading about Natalie's research work as much as the murder plot. The story is well written....I'd love to read more of Natalie's adventures in the future! Highly recommended for the mystery-lover.
If you enjoy cozy mysteries, this is perfect….Burrows-Johnson masterfully describes the locations, people and history in vivid detail that flows almost poetically….[She] did an excellent job of reading the book. The enunciation and clearness of her speech as well as the passion was not over the top or fake.…Her voice was soothing and calming.
Retired travel writer Natalie Seachrist has had visions all of her life. But when she realizes the body she views draped over a vintage Mustang is her grandniece, her life changes forever. With the cautionary advice of retired police detective Keoni Hewitt and her feline companion Miss Una, Natalie investigates Ariel’s death at a Honolulu Foothills apartment. There she discovers the Shànghăi origins of the Wong Sisters who own the complex...and more than a little discord. Will Natalie be able to solve the mystery of the girl's demise before the police close their investigation without an arrest? Or has she put herself in the way of a killer who’s willing to murder again to hide their secret?
