Borders Bookstore Closing in Kailua Kona, Hawaii

What will book lovers do now that Borders Bookstore is closing in Kona? 

It is sad that Borders Bookstore will be closing soon in Kona, Hawaii and just a few months ago the Borders in  Hilo, Hawaii, closed its doors and will now become a Walgreens Drug Store opening in April of this year. 

What will book lovers do now that there is no longer a bigbox bookstore on the island of Hawaii (Big Island).  It is my hope that Barnes and Noble will step up to the plate and take over Borders retail space and continue selling books on the Big Island.  If not, there's always the B&N online store, as well as Amazon, I guess more business for them.

Even though I have a nook and an Ipad [with all of the ereader apps] I still love to hang out at book stores, something about the real feel of things.

We'll see what happens, in the meantime you can read the article by using this link:  Star Advertiser Breaking News: Lihue, Kauai, and Kailua-Kona, Big Island, Borders Stores to Close

Elvis and the Dearly Departed by Peggy Webb

Elvis and the Dearly Departed

 

Author Biography

 

Peggy Webb is the bestselling author of more than sixty novels. A former adjunct lecturer at Mississippi State University, she has won numerous writing awards, composes blues songs on her vintage baby grand and shares her home in Tupelo, Mississippi, with her chocolate Lab and a quirky muse who channels Elvis.


Synopsis from the Publisher

 

They say you can't get to Heaven without passing through the Eternal Rest Funeral Home. And no one gets into Eternal Rest without passing muster with Elvis-the basset hound who's convinced he's the reincarnation of the King of Rock `n' Roll. Brewing up a big ol' pitcher of Mississippi mystery, Peggy Webb's delightful new series is as intoxicating as the Delta breeze.

Normally, Callie Valentine Jones spends her days fixing up the hairdos of the dead, but when the corpse of local, prominent physician Dr. Leonard Laton goes missing, it's bad for business. So Callie and her oversexed cousin Lovie (Eternal Rest's resident wake caterer) have no choice but to go in hot pursuit of the recently embalmed, last seen bound for Vegas by way of downtown Tupelo.

Now Elvis may be nothin' but a hound dog, but he knows a mystery when he smells one. But keeping his human mom from wandering off the trail isn't easy when she's back in the arms of her on-again, off-again ex, Jack. Not to mention the angry mourners squabbling over the estate of the late doctor inside the not-so-restful halls of Eternal Rest. Or the French poodle sniffing around for a hunk of Elvis' burning love.

In Vegas, Callie and Lovie hit the jackpot when they find the dearly departed inside a freezer owned by his showgirl mistress, Bubble Malone. But they're luck runs out when Bubble decides to join her man in the afterlife. With the poisonous Laton family tree providing plenty of rotten suspects, Callie's determined to crack this case-with a little help from that irresistible piece of man she used to call her husband-and have a killer singing "Jailhouse Rock" in time for her next hair cutting appointment.


My Review:

I wanted to take a little time off from my regular intense “Criminal Minds” murder/mystery type books and read something a little lighter.  I chose Elvis and the Dearly Departed by Peggy Webb.  This was a fun, light cozy mystery “Murder she Wrote” type of book with characters [family] you could relate to and follow.  I especially enjoyed “Elvis” the dog’s silly antics throughout the book.   It definitely had some harebrained ideas, but that’s what made it so entertaining.  I will definitely read more books by Peggy Webb.  What a great series!!
I gave this book a rating of
    "Great"
