The Musubi Murder
Publisher: Five Star (August 5, 2015)
In the remote college town of Mahina, Hawaii, Molly Barda just wants to stay out of trouble until she gets tenure, but there’s a problem. A grisly prank targeting a controversial donor puts her college in financial jeopardy. Molly’s hapless ex is implicated, and Molly soon finds herself neck-deep in a stew of corruption, revenge, and murder. Along the way, she finds herself drawn to a local fast-food entrepreneur, the too-good-to-be-true Donnie Gonsalves, who seems to like her for all the wrong .reasons–and has a few secrets of his own.

Powell’s /Audible / iTunes My review: The Musubi Murder by Frankie Bow 4 STARSThis is a book set in a college town of Mahina, Hawaii. I sure hope the stuff that happened here does not go on where my girls are going to college. There is murder, cheating, and the students don't get held accountable for the wrongs they do.What would you do for your children? Do we complain when they are got cheating? want them to have second chances. Where do we stop fixing things for them? What is best?There is plenty of drama, romance, mystery and characters that I like In Musubi Murder. The main character is Molly Barda a college professor who is untenured so she has to do the crummy jobs. She is single. Her two co-workers that are her friends Emma Nakamura and Patrick Flanagan. They like to drink her coffee.Molly has to go to a breakfast honoring Jimmy Tanaka who is one of the most hated man in Hawaii because he donated a lot of money to the college. There is protest there and Jimmy is a no show.Molly does meet Donnie Gonsalves owner of Donnie's Drive-Inns. She finds him attractive. His son is one of her students.Jimmy is found to be murdered. Molly finds some clues with the help of her friends.There are plenty of suspects, lots of people are upset with Jimmy and his business practices.There are some images that made me want to gag thinking about the murders.I would be willing to see what happens next to Molly and her friends.I was given this ebook to read for free and in return I agreed to give a honest review of The Musubi Murder and be part of its blog tour.
