Evil Alice and the Borzoi by DK Coutant is the first book in the Cleo Copper Mystery series. This is a well-written book. I liked the characters. The descriptions of Hawaii and explanation of local customs made this book interesting.

Excellent first in a new series!
Hawai'i is so beautiful and parts of it are described in detail. Diving can be treacherous and that is exactly how the murders begin. Who thinks of sequential murders in such an idyllic place?! Lots of fascinating characters (including the expected sexpests), two amazingly beautiful dogs, and the sadness that comes with a relationship failure. the suspense escalated until the amazing conclusion.
I just know that the next will be even better!
I requested and received an EARC from The Wild Rose Press, Inc via NetGalley. Thank you!
I so needed a vacation in Hawaii but since I'm broke this cozy with it's vivid descriptions was the excellent way to travel there. During a class outing on a research vessel the body of a young woman is discovered. Cleo Cooper doesn't like that her favorite student is the likely suspect. Can she find the real killer in time? The story flows smoothly. Love the vivid descriptions. Thanks#netgalley and #Thewildrosepressinc for the eARC in exchange for a honest review. All opinions are mine.
