From R. Barri Flowers, the best-selling author of the Leila Kahana Maui Mysteries and Eddie Naku Maui Mysteries, comes the third and final installment of the captivating Maui contemporary novelette Audible series, Kaanapali Beach Paradise.
Set amidst the lush playground of Maui, Hawaii’s famed Kaanapali Beach Resort, the soap opera-style tale of adultery, ambition, dark secrets, glamour, love, lust, hate, romance, betrayal, revenge, and murder revolves around the anticipated grand opening of Kaanapali Palms Hotel, the latest luxury accommodation on this three mile-long ocean front stretch of paradise on the island’s western shore.
Multimillionaire real estate investor and CEO of Kaanapali Palms Ben Crawford is not above getting in bed with organized crime to make his dream come true. A widower, his 19-year old daughter, Leigh, means everything to him. Forgotten is the child he abandoned long ago, never imagining this would come back to haunt him.
Leigh Crawford is gorgeous, spoiled, precocious, and primarily looking to have fun at her daddy’s new luxury hotel. After meeting super-hot Hawaiian chauffeur Masami, things get steamy in a hurry. Will they crash-land, or could there actually be a future between them?
Yoshiko Pelayo is a stunning Hawaiian journalist who has taken an undercover job in housekeeping at the Kaanapali Palms while plotting vengeance against the father she never knew in Ben Crawford, whom she blames for her mother’s death and her own abandonment.
Eugene Keebler is a janitor at the Kaanapali Palms and small-time hood. He sees the grand opening as a golden opportunity to rob the place, with the help of crooked friends.
