They’re all about to make Kaley Kalua’s life a waking nightmare… Happy Hula Boutique manager, Kaley, is excited to celebrate Halloween with her friends at Aloha Lagoon’s upcoming Alohaween Festival—that is, until her Aunt Rikki drags her to a ghoul-themed beauty pageant to cheer on her longtime nemesis, Harmony Kane. The competition is stiff, and things turn deadly when the winner is found staked with her own scepter and stuffed inside a coffin on one of the floats for the annual Halloween parade. Kaley is even more shocked when she receives a call from Harmony, begging her to prove that she didn’t kill the woman. She reluctantly accepts, and with the help of her pal, Jamie, and the oh-so-tempting resort lifeguard, Noa, Kaley delves into the mysterious circumstances surrounding the beauty queen’s ghastly murder. Did a scorned pageant contender take out the competition, or does one of the judges have something to hide? It seems nearly everyone has a skeleton in their closet, and someone wants theirs to stay buried. Kaley finds herself in the killer’s cross-hairs, and if she doesn’t uncover the truth soon, she may wind up in a coffin of her own.

Mean girl Harmony Kane is a contestant in the Miss Undead Hawaii contest and everyone in the gang has agreed to go watch her compete.

Mean girl Harmony Kane is a contestant in the Miss Undead Hawaii contest and everyone in the gang has agreed to go watch her compete. Kaley, her boyfriend Noa, her best friend, Jamie and her boyfriend, Javi, Aunt Rikki and others from the crew of the Happy Hula Dress Boutique attend in support of Harmony. A lot of old rivals from the pageant circuit come together and not all are friends with each other, in particular, Jade, Tess and Harmony. Jade won the contest and Harmony was quite angry as was Tess, who was humiliated when Jade trips her on stage. Tess happens to be girlfriend of Jade's step brother, Kyle. The next morning when Jade doesn't show up for the parade to ride the pageant float, Harmony is called to fill in as the first runner up. Before the parade starts, Jade's body is found in a fake coffin on the float and Harmony gets blamed for the murder. Kaley is totally surprised when Harmony calls her from jail asking her to find the real killer. Kaley only agrees after Harmony agrees to be nice. There are lots of people in this story that hate each other and have a reason to want to get rid of Jade because of her nasty personality, including her step brother who would inherit her money, recently inherited because of the death of her father. It was fun to watch Harmony be nice to Kaley for a change but there is a side mystery that involves Noa that has Kaley upset. Could there be another woman? It is a fun week of Halloween fun in Aloha Lagoon. This is a great, fast read. Ms. Stoddard does a great job keeping the story flowing. Thanks to Gemma Halliday for the complimentary ARC to read and give an honest review. The opinions stated are mine only.

Tiaras and Terror is the 13th book in the series and it surely does not disappoint. Kaley, is the manager at her Aunt Rikki's boutique and her frenemy Harmony is the assistant manager. Halloween is a big deal in Aloha Lagoon and it all begins with an undead themed beauty pageant, the winner be in the lead float. To support Harmony who has entered again this year and really wants a cheering squad in the audience asks Rikki and the crew in the boutique to come cheer her on. It appears her nemesis, Jade, who keeps entering the same beauty pageants as Harmony has entered this one again. Throwing her bullying self around, comes to the boutique and bullies Harmony in the same way Harmony bullies Kaley. Maybe a lesson learned? When once again, Jade wins by sabotaging Harmony on stage, Harmony has an argument with Jade backstage after everyone has left. She leaves and goes home. When Kaley and Noa go to the parade to meet with Jamie and Javi they see police all around there. Seems someone was murdered. Just so happens it is Jade. They leave and go home to carve their pumpkins a ritual they do every year with Aunt Rikki. While they are working on the pumpkins, Kaley gets and unusual call from Harmony. She wants Kaley to find out who killed Jade because suspicion is thrown on Harmony. Lots of secrets, lots of twists and turns, lots of accusations and a surprise ending. You just can't put the book down until you find out who killed Jade! I received and ARC but the opinions expressed here are strictly my own.

    Halloween and Hawaii, a terror-ific combination! Tiaras & Terror is the 13th book in the Aloha Lagoon mystery series, all written by different authors, and the third book written by Anne Marie Stoddard within this series. It features Kaley Kalua who manages the Happy Hula Dress Boutique at Aloha Lagoon Resort. Kaley has been asked by her childhood nemesis Harmony Kane to determine who would want to murder her arch rival Jade Monroe in the Miss Undead Hawaii Beauty Pageant. Jade was known to Halloween and Hawaii, a terror-ific combination! Tiaras & Terror is the 13th book in the Aloha Lagoon mystery series, all written by different authors, and the third book written by Anne Marie Stoddard within this series. It features Kaley Kalua who manages the Happy Hula Dress Boutique at Aloha Lagoon Resort. Kaley has been asked by her childhood nemesis Harmony Kane to determine who would want to murder her arch rival Jade Monroe in the Miss Undead Hawaii Beauty Pageant. Jade was known to cheat her way in the beauty pageant circuitry to beat her competitors, including intentionally sabotaging Harmony's talent act in one competition. The culprit did catch me by surprise but the author did a great job with the motive. Besides solving the mystery, Kaley also must resolve her insecure feelings. After going through a divorce with her cheating ex-husband, Kaley is still having trust issues even with her devoted boyfriend Noa. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to read in cozy mysteries. This is a winning combination of Hawaii and Halloween. With many Halloween festivities and costumes in this book, it was truly a fun read. I read the previous book by this author and I absolutely loved it. I did miss the first book so I am anxious to go back in time and relive Kaley's tumultuous relationship with her ex. This author does an excellent job of writing these cozies. Her writing flows, you feel the emotions of these characters and the frightful moments during some Halloween events, and she is able to create a fun and intriguing mystery. I plan to seek out this author's other series. I received an ARC from the publisher for purposes of an unbiased review.

    This is such a fun book to read close to Halloween. The Lagoon is celebrating Alohaween and having an undead beauty pageant. The mean girl from the past makes Kaley and her friends life a nightmare. Lots of skeletons in the closet with this one. Fun, fast read and it is definitely a page turner. I voluntarily reviewed a copy I received from the publisher.

    Awesome I think Kaley and Now are two of my favorite characters in this series. There is an interesting twist in the relationship between Haley and Harmony. The murderer's identity was completely unexpected. I was sure it was someone else.
