Hula Homicide, September 2022


Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match,” where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It’s our great pleasure to present B. A. Trimmer!



B A Trimmer writes fun romantic murder mysteries set in warm, beautiful places. Think swaying palms, blue oceans, golf resorts, colorful cocktails, and waterfalls. Our heroine will find herself thrown into a wild ride where nothing is what it seems, and danger lurks around every corner. Fortunately, she’s always surrounded by a group of close friends and at least one gorgeous guy. (Even though her friends have their weird quirks, they would never let her down.) And, of course, our heroine will always solve the murder, capture the bad guys, and win her lover’s heart (well, eventually).

My latest book, HULA HOMICIDE, is set at the upscale Aloha Lagoon Resort on the gorgeous island of Kaui. Wedding planner Kristy Piper is thrilled with landing a job in paradise. That is, until a groomsman turns up dead, and her hot new photographer is the police’s prime suspect. Suddenly it’s up to Kristy to clear the heartthrob’s name and figure out which of her current wedding party had it in for the dead man...before they strike again!



Author B A Trimmer has always loved fun romantic mysteries and adventures. After living in Arizona for nearly twenty years, it only made sense to have the first nine novels centered around the glamorous resort town of Scottsdale. The author currently resides in a comfortable old farmhouse, with a dozen cats living in the barn. Coffee, dark chocolate, and red wine are the indulgences of choice.


My ideal reader match for my latest book, Hula Homicide, must love…

  • a fun romantic murder mystery set on a beautiful tropical island
  • my weird sense of humor
  • a feisty heroine who doesn’t mind bending, or even breaking, the rules
  • a tall, caring, well-built man with dark curly hair and piercing blue eyes for the love interest
  • a cast of characters based on friendship and love
  • shenanigans, banter, and fun
  • a happy ending where everyone gets what they deserve


What to expect if we’re compatible:

  • you’ll first want to read the entire Aloha Lagoon series
  • you’ll then want to read the entire Laura Black Scottsdale series
  • a lot of fun but occasionally weird humor
  • after reading about Scottsdale and Kaui, you’ll definitely want to visit both places!

HULA HOMICIDE by B. A. Trimmer

Aloha Lagoon Mysteries #19

Hula Homicide

From author B.A. Trimmer comes a new wedding planner in Aloha Lagoon... but will she get a happily ever after?

Kristy Piper finally achieved her lifelong dream of moving to paradise when she took a job in Hawaii as the Aloha Lagoon resort wedding planner on the gorgeous island of Kauai. Sun, surf, sandy beaches, and glowing brides...what could possibly go wrong?

Turns out, everything.

What starts out as a dream destination wedding, with a happy couple and their wedding party enjoying all that Aloha Lagoon has to offer, turns into a nightmare when one of the groomsmen is found dead just days before the ceremony. What's worse, Kristy's hot new photographer, Jake Hunter, was found next to the victim, along with the murder weapon, a souvenir tiki statue.

While Kristy is convinced Jake had nothing to do with the killing, the police are not as sure. Suddenly it's up to Kristy to clear the heartthrob's name and figure out which of the wedding party had it in for the dead guest. Is it the groomsman with a past? The twin bridesmaids with designs on deception? Or the anonymous thief who stole the bride's wealthy aunt's jewelry just before the murder? With the help of her bold middle-aged office manager Dorothy and her beautiful best friend Leilani, Kristy attempts to wade through the wedding party of suspects, all with complicated histories with the dead man. Can they find the real killer before the police close in on an innocent man...or will they die trying?

About B. A. Trimmer

B. A. Trimmer


I'm thrilled to announce that Kristy, our favorite Scottsdale wedding planner, has taken up residence in Aloha Lagoon! After the crazy events of Scottsdale Silence, Kristy finally achieved her lifelong dream of moving to paradise. She took a job in Hawaii as the Aloha Lagoon resort wedding planner on the gorgeous island of Kauai. Sun, surf, sandy beaches, and glowing brides...what could possibly go wrong?

Turns out, everything.

Want to know more? Check out Hula Homicide, the latest book in the Aloha Lagoon Mystery Series. This series is written by several authors, including Leslie Langtry, Beth Prentice, and Cathern Bruns. Each is a complete stand-alone novel, or you can read them one after the other.

As for me, halfway through a successful career in technical writing, marketing, and sales, along with having four beautiful children, I somehow veered into fiction. Combining a love of the desert, derived from many years of living in Arizona, with an appreciation of the modern romantic detective story, the Scottsdale Series was born. I hope you like the results!

Thanks to all for the great comments and suggestions. As always, I'd love to hear from you.
