This is the third book in the Aloha Reef series that I have read. Other than catching up on each character's relationship to one another, this book could be a stand-alone read.
The plot is suspenseful, in a lush setting, with interesting characters defined well enough to create an entertaining story.
There is one subplot I felt wasn't strong enough to involve so much of the book which was about Bane, the jilted fiance, trying to find out why Leia broke off their engagement and his attempts to convince her to change her decision distracted a little much from the suspense. Otherwise I would have given 4 stars.
There are subtle Christian references which I prefer and a good balance between dialogue and description.
