    One thought on “Murder at Dolphin Bay”

    1. Kailani 'Lani' Pope comes from a family of cops. She wants to be a cop, also, but there's one small problem--she's barely five feet tall. Living in the beautiful state of Hawaii, Lani works as a beachfront lifeguard at the Dolphin Bay Resort. She's fiercely independent and competitive, and strives to be the best at everything she does. Having five very masculine, protective brothers can get on a gal's nerves. Lani lives in a small condo with her lab mix rescue dog, Sandy, and her two best friend [...]

    2. This is the first book in a great new series from Kathi! We are in Hawaii this time, with Lani and her family. Lani wants to be a cop, but keeps getting her application put to the bottom of the stack, thanks to her brothers. This book is so much fun, and the setting, I could just picture everything, having been there. I had fun meeting all of the new characters, Lani is lots of fun, and I hope the friendship/almost romance between her and Luke develops even more in the next book, I really like h [...]

    3. This is the first book in another new series from the incredibly prolific Kathi Daley. As usual, it is a very well-written story, with a group of easy to like main characters. The focus is on Kailani (Lani) Pope, who comes from a family tradition of law enforcement officials and wants to join them on the police force. She has been denied entrance to the academy numerous times, and begins to wonder if family members are blocking her.While she waits for admission, she works as a lifeguard at the D [...]

    4. Murder At Dolphin Bay ( Sand and Sea Hawaiian Mystery Book-1 )By: Kathi DaleyMurder At Dolphin Bay is the first book in Sand and Sea Hawaiian Mystery Series. I had thought Kathi Daley’s cozy mysteries could not get any better. Well was I wrong. She has herself another winning new series. I love the story and the characters, both was easy to follow. When I started reading Murder At Dolphin Bay I could not put it down till the end, and then I wanted more. Daley gives us another female sleuth and [...]

    5. An Awesome New SeriesAn awesome beginning to a new series. Kathi takes you to a beautiful setting and introduces you to some fabulous new friends. Lani is an energetic islander who dreams of being a cop but has a way of forever finding herself in awkward situations. I loved following along as she tries to solve a crime to show her family that size doesn't matter but heart does.

    6. Lani is a spitfire, I would love to read more about her getting herself into sticky situations while trying to figure out a police case. She so badly wants to be a police officer like her brothers, she thinks it's her brothers keeping her from becoming a cop, however they point out to her, it might be her acting before thinking way of life. I want more Lani & Luke too!!

    7. Aloha,Do you love a cozy mystery? If so, read this book! You will also learn some things about Hawaii. At the end, the author shares Hawaiian recipes from the book.The main character, Lani is a stubborn and feisty chick. She comes from a family that blood, blood runs in the veins. She is a lifeguard. She dreams of being a cop. Her friends are awesome. They defined the meaning of friendships.

    8. Enjoyed this amazing read at the beach. Was so happy to read this new series that has amazing characters. Kailani wants to be a cop which is her every dream. Her dad and grandfather were a cop and all her five brothers also. She has tried to get into the force but feels like her brothers are setting her back plus her height is in the short side. She runs into a suspicious death and starts doing her investigation on her own not knowing what dangers await her. I was happy that this series occurs i [...]

    9. Fun ReadAnother winner by author Kathi Daley. Love the place this mystery story took place in. The character Lani captures your interest along with Luke. Looking forward to the next book.

    10. The story held my interest but it felt like reading about Zoe Donovan and her friends in Hawaii rather than a new series.

    11. Murder at Dolphin Bay is book one in Daley’s newest series A Sand and Sea Hawaiian Mystery. I really enjoyed this book and feel this will be another great series to follow. This series introduces a new character Lani, who dreams of following in family footsteps of becoming a cop. She finds a dead body and vows to solve the crime before her cop brother does. Along her journey she finds a new friend and introduces us to her friends and family. I look forward to reading the next book in this seri [...]

    12. A fun and interesting mystery that will transport the reader to Hawaii. The book is light reading that follows a lifeguard, sorry Water Safety Officer, who wants to be a cop as the tries to investigate the murder of a man on her beach. Most of the investigating is done at an arms length so there isn’t a lot of action but it’s a fun read. The characters are interesting if a bit static but I really enjoyed the book.

    13. Fun mysteryOverall I enjoyed the book, although the ending was a bit too abrupt for me. The main character is rescued from a dangerous situation and then the case is solved. After building up the tension between the main character and her brother, it would have been nice to include a conversation between the two once the case was silver by her brother.

    14. This was easy to read. It made me feel like I was getting a window into the younger generation, more like listening into a conversation between my grandchildren. Of course, that would be if they were in Hawaii, which they aren't. The mystery was compelling, the ambiance was delightful. The viewpoint character had a bit of insight/revelation. A bit of a romantic air included with the mystery.

    15. Murder at Dolphin Bay is the first i a new Sand and Sea mystery series. We meet Lani who wants to follow in her families footsteps and become a cop. So when she finds a dead body she decides to try to solve the crime before her brother the cop does. A well written compelling mystery.

    16. This Is a Good One I have been to Europe and lots of places in Central & South America but never to Hawaii and I've always wanted to go. This book gave me a little taste of the islands and I really enjoyed both the peek and the book.

    17. Kindle Unlimited liked it but didn't love it hence 4 stars. Wasn't anything stupid such as typos or anything like that, just didn't love this.Murder at Dolphin Bay (Sand and Sea Hawaiian Mystery Book 1)Murder at Sunrise (A Sand and Sea Hawaiian Mystery Book 2)Murder at the Witching Hour (Sand and Sea Hawaiian Mystery #3)Murder at Christmas (Sand and Sea Hawaiian Mystery #4)Zoe Donovan, Whales and Tails, Sand and Sea, others, check out amazon page

    18. Have read a few Kathi Daley books, Murder at Dolphin Bay, is by far the best. Love the gang, and Luke is a heart throb. Wonder if Lani will ever get on the police force!. Gonna get the next book, Murder at Sunrise, soon. (Looks like there are 5 books in this series, so far).

    19. I'm certainly not a native Hawaiian, but even I know Hawaiians don't talk like the main (native Hawaiian) character. Also, it was a throw away mystery. Conjecture on how it was written: "I'm not sure how to finish this book. Maybe just an international conspiracy? That will work."

    20. Great readthis was a real good book from the first page till the last if you like like good books this is the book for you
