M is for Maile


Vlado/FreeDigitalPhotos.net


Maile Onakea is Leilani’s best friend and one of the official members of The Hawaiian Island Detective Club. Maile is Leilani’s best cheerleader. She suspects Leilani has a crush on her older brother, Kainoa, but can’t really understand how her friend could like her “surfer dude” brother. Ahhh . . . sisters!

M is also for Mahalo which means Thank You in Hawaiian. Mystery is also a great M word since that’s what this series is all about!

Menehunes, Hawaii's mythical little people, are the stars of book 2, Menehunes Missing. Well, actually it's statues of the little Menehunes that are the stars. During the town's Menehune Hunt fundraiser, the kids discover missing statues and proceed to hunt down clues to find the culprit and why they're stealing the little statues.

And, finally, M is for Mahhhhhhhm! Any idea who screams, shrieks, hollers or yells this a lot? Of course—Kimo!

See you every Thursday as I go through the alphabet, giving you little snippets of words from Pineapples in Peril, Menehunes Missing and Ukuleles Undercover (Books 1-3 of The Hawaiian Island Detective Club.) It’s the ABCs OF THE HIDC!

Aloha, and Mahalo for visiting!
