TORRANCE — Mystery author Naomi Hirahara will speak on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 2 p.m. at the Katy Geissert Civic Center Library Community Room, 3301 Torrance Blvd. in Torrance.
Leilani has left her post-collegiate life in Seattle to return home to the Hawaiian island of Kauai. Her mom’s been diagnosed with MS, and she wants to help keep afloat the family business, a shave ice shack.
When Leilani arrives at work one morning, she stumbles across a dead body, a young pro surfer who was being coached by her estranged father. As her father soon becomes the No. 1 murder suspect, Leilani must find the real killer and somehow safeguard her ill mother, little sisters, and grandmother, while trying to keep the long-distance relationship with her boyfriend alive.
