Blurb: A romantic vacation for…five? This wasn’t exactly what Jessie and Wilson had in mind when they planned their trip to the tropics. But the fun begins when Jessie’s delightfully spry mother, Wilson’s surfer dude son, and Jessie’s rabidly hyperactive New York agent decide to tag along. But what kind of trouble can these three oddest of odd balls possibly get into? Take a guess.
My Review: In a series full of hijinks and adventure, this third Cue Ball Mystery just may be the most fun yet. Jessie and Wilson are planning a perfect Christmas getaway in Hawaii, only to be joined at the last minute by her mother, his son, and Jessie's literary agent Louise. (Tessie is even more adorable and hysterical when Louise is involved!!!) Things get even worse when a dead body is discovered in Tessie's bungalow. Eventually Jessie finds herself in a situation similar to one of her romance novel heroines. (Her reaction to the wilderness, spiders in particular, is much like mine.) I also enjoyed the scenes where Jessie contacts her friends back home to see how her cat Snowflake and Wilson's two felines are co-habitating in their absense. You never know, it might just be a tryout for a more permanent living arrangement!
Even if you've never played pool in your life, this really is a mystery series you need to pick up. I would compare it to Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum...it's just that much fun.
I received a copy of this book from the author with the request for a review.
