Even death do us part couldn't spoil her wedding day plans... Wedding planner Pali Moon is thrilled when a would-be bride shows up at Let's Get Maui'd inquiring about a lavish beach wedding. That is, until she learns it must be on Valentine's Day--just nine days away. Oh yeah, and one other little hitch--the groom disappeared at sea a week earlier. But the bride's convinced he'll be found safe and sound, so she's got a plan--and a man--to do a proxy ceremony if necessary. The day before the big nuptials a man's body washes ashore on a South Maui beach. Has the groom finally shown up? If so, what's it going to be--a wedding...or a funeral? This is the FIRST book in the Islands of Aloha Mystery series.
JoAnn Bassett grew up in Seattle, but always preferred palm trees to pine trees. She ran a business and raised a son, hoping to someday make a day at the beach an everyday reality. In 1996 she and her husband bought a home on Maui, making the dream a reality. Now she lives in Arizona, but still enjoys writing about life in the islands.
