Newly single and far from home, Professor Molly Barda wants to focus on her job and stay out of trouble until she gets tenure at remote Mahina State University. But her life is upended when fast-food entrepreneur Jimmy Tanaka, founder of Merrie Musubis, pledges a huge donation to Molly's college, and then disappears. Molly's bottom-line-obsessed dean tasks her with locating the missing musubi mogul, a quest that lands her in a stew of old grudges, whispered scandals, and murder. Along the way, Molly starts to fall for Tanaka's competitor, the too-good-to-be-true Donnie Gonsalves. Donnie seems to like her for all the wrong reasons--and has a few secrets of his own.

Admittedly, I listened to this an audiobook rather than reading it, but I absolutely loved it! The mystery aspect combined so well with the satire on the academic profession. As someone who was in that world for years, the satire is spot on and hilarious.

Probably would've given up if the story wasn't set in a fictional Hawaiian town with lots of tropical references that I love. I kept hoping it would settle down and get more detailed but it didn't. Characters were not very well-developed. Almost seemed like an outline instead of a completed work or maybe the middle of a series but no other books listed in the paper version I read.
