Aloha, Candy Hearts by Anthony Bidulka – Insomniac Press


Buy it Now from Giovanni’s Room or at Amazon through Dreamwalker Group

There are more mystery novels out there today than one cares to imagine, and I have to admit I’ve never been a big fan of the mystery genre. There are of course one or two exceptions. The Russell Quant series by Anthony Bidulka is one of those exceptions.

The Russell Quant series is not just another who-done-it with flat characters and an even flatter story line. Anthony pulls you into his character’s lives with his simple, stylish prose. He makes you befriend them, and care for them as if they were family, and as with most families things don’t always turn out the way you want or expect them to. Russell Quant’s life is no different.

In the sixth installment of the series, Russell Quant finds himself mixed up in one of the most intriguing mysteries yet; a treasure hunt that takes him through the rich history of Saskatoon. While struggling to keep one step ahead in the case, Russell must also juggle his personal life, which at times is just as complicated as the case he’s working on.

In the short 250 pages, you will be swept away and be witness to a wedding proposal, a memorial service, a wedding, a murder, blackmail, a new blossoming love, and a very tearful goodbye. Do yourself a favor and run out and purchase Aloha, Candy Hearts. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the first five novels, Anthony Bidulka will give you what you need to fit right into his family of characters but be prepared, once you’ve read this installment, you’ll be rushing out to purchase the others.
