    One thought on “Ms America and the Offing on Oahu”

    1. Diana Dempsey has done it again She never ceases to enthral me with her clever plots I find her characters adorable and the Beauty Queen Mysteries No 1 was no exception It seems Diana had great fun writing Offing in Oahu , that comes out clearly in her amusing and punchy writing I did wonder how this story would appeal being written in the first person, but I had no need to worry, I found it a great read.I would thoroughly recommend this book to all readers and will definitely look forward to th [...]

    2. This was my first read by Ms Dempsey snd I enjoyed it It was a nice cozy mystery that didn t bore I like the it didn t drag on with useless information that didn t fit the story.Happy Pennington is a beauty queen who wants to be an amateur sleuth Her father is a cop, so she feels she should do investigating cause its in her blood.I will be looking for the rest in the series.

    3. I managed, just barely to finish this book last night and I wanted to give myself 24 hours to mull over what I felt about it Unfortunately my feelings haven t changed from last night Instead of the 1 star this book should have gotten I gave it a 2 because I could see that the author tried very hard to make this an interesting, action packed book She did try to weave a good story, and had some interesting and well written secondary characters Unfortunately what finally did happen, is that the so [...]

    4. This was a freebie on my Kindle and it turned out to be a nice little surprising Summer read Often I start Summer chick lit books and give up a chapter or so in because they re boring and predictable but this was pretty good I did wonder how much I d like the main character because of the whole beauty queen thing and was she going to be some airhead who just happened to flirt her way to the truth but no, Happy I did find the name irritating was quite likeable Her Mother was funny and the crime e [...]

    5. Found this book to be an enjoyable, light read that is perfect for sitting by the pool or under a tree The story revolves around Ms Ohio, Happy Pennington, who witnesses one of her top rivals dying of poisoning Since she was the last competitor to see the poisoned Ms California alive, and because this final contestant was her top competitor to the Ms America crown which just so happens to now be awarded to Ms Ohio , Happy is the top suspect in the murder To clear her name she begins investigatin [...]

    6. Great story line but needs editingThis whole manuscript jumps from first person to third person back and forth The author also doesn t keep tense correctly, jumping from present to past tense repeatedly Both of these grammar snafus get in the way of a good read when a good editor could have taken care of this Aside from this, excellent story line, good character progression and a fun read

    7. I really enjoyed the twists and turns of this light hearted mystery novel It was a first read from the author and I will certainly consider reading the other Beauty Queen Mystery stories as well I obtained the book as a freebie and read it on my Kindle over two sittings great for a poolside or plane ride The book has some fun at the expense of the pageant process, which I found quite entertaining

    8. This was a fun, upbeat cozy mystery I liked the humor and the characters, I didn t care for the way some of the characters handled one another It wasn t personal preference on my part Oh, I wish so and so did this but that I didn t find some character reactions and interactions believable But it was still fun, and I recommend it to anyone who s looking for an entertaining read The beauty queen pageant thing was a cool setting not to mention Hawaii

    9. DelightfulDelightfulThis is a good start for a series with beauty queen contestants as the major players Suspenseful, enjoyable A pleasant read I d certainly like to read stories about Happy Pennington.

    10. Got this for free on the kindle and ended up enjoying it Fun mystery, funny moments, good beach reading and a unique spin on the accidental detective Plus, now i know the difference between a muumuu, a caftan, and a tunic I think I ll read the next in this series.

    11. A fun read with so many possible suspects The beauty contest pageant theme is unique and worked surprisingly well A definite recommend to people who like fun,upbeat cozy mysteries.

    12. I really enjoyed this book its what I like to call an easy sunday afternoon book It was fun and very enjoyable I am looking forward to reading the next one in the series.

    13. Happy Pennington is Ms Ohio, and she s competing for the Ms America title in the finale in Oahu She makes it to the final fived then it s down to the final four when one contestant ends up dead on stage Happy, of course, was the last in the booth with her and the eventual winner, so she s on the suspect listbut she has a suspect list of her own, and she s determined to figure it out, using her new crown if necessary, especially when her crown is in jeopardy Happy isn t an airhead she seems like [...]

    14.

    15. I thought this was a fun little fairly quick read A beauty queen, Happy Pennington, stumbles upon a murder at her own beauty queen contest, gets herself listed and suspect 1 and so decides to sets about to solve it, and clearing her name It took a cozy from a different point a view and that was a fun twist on it I enjoyed discovering and solving the mystery with Happy and I enjoyed Happy herself She was fun, witty, and sharp as a tack The author did a good job a write a fairly tight plot, with l [...]

    16. Ms America competition is fierce and the presumed winner ends up dead from lethal lipstick Enter Ohio contestant Happy Pennington not her real name to glide her way to the answer The book is quirky with funny but not fully developed characters and the answer is a quick sum up that left me unsatisfied All that said, I think this has the fundamentals needed for a fun series following the beauty pagents around the globe You ll learn trade secrets like how to use packing never duct tape and why Ms C [...]

    17. This book should probably be a three star it was well written and well edited it was just too goofy of a story to get a three star by me It is the kind of ultra light reading one does by the pool or at the beach when one wants to keep busy without a lot of brain usage Fun, but I doubt I will read another one by her, unless I am of course, going to the beach or laying in bed with a cold and cannot concentrate much It was fun and goofy if you are looking for that this book is for you.

    18. This book is great to read on vacation or when you have read an intense book This book has very descriptive writing If I cared about fashion it might have mattered to me.This book does have some references to homosexual references along with numerous adultery references Some people might not find acceptable for young teens becauses of these references Overall it was a light and quick read.

    19. This was cute and gave me a much needed mental vacation to Hawaii I really don t care what the gals are wearing and how they re doing their hair while solving mysteries, but that s what I get for reading a story about pageant participants Best of all, I did not correctly guess the murderer by the third chapter, which is nice.

    20. This is a great cozy, fun, reasonable characters, a solid plot, and just interesting to the last page There are two books in the series, and I m ready to read them Trust me, this book is fun, and the whodunnit is a cleverly kept secret, but not way out of the realm of guessing.I enjoyed this read It was not annoying and no pressure Tasteful and fun

    21. This was a light mystery and, I think, a freebie from nook There were a lot of characters and a lot of suspects, and the plot was fairly good I thought the author could have handled the family relationships better as she made the husband look foolish at times.

    22. Kind of reminded me of Miss Congeniality , but the players are older ladies competing in a pageant instead of young ladies.There s murder mixed with affairs and some humor here and there.I enjoyed the book.

    23. It was an entertaining read and it kept me guessing I give it only 2.5 stars because I felt that the ending was quite a letdown There was such a buildup in the first half and then it just kind of fizzled out towards the end.

    24. Light hearted, easy read No great suspense or character development and not particulary memorable but was still an ok read on a hot summer day when you don t really want to think too hard about anything.

    25. Good romp and a break from heavy reading I love the Miss America pageant, so this is delightful a mystery around the pageantry Has tips on how the contestants get ready, compete, and make or lose friends and what they do to ensure they win.

    26. I liked trying to solve the mystery, but I don t understand why the main character bothered to try and solve the case herself Not once was did it seem as if she would go to jail for the death of the other contestant Just ridiculous the logic she used in this novel.

    27. I enjoyed this story, comical funny entertaining sometimes wondered about grown married women who had children wanting to be in a beauty pageant butEAT summer read Will look for by Diana Dempsey
