This is a very good book with some excellent morals we can learn from: like treating your siblings with love and respecting your parents. I really liked Leilani and felt her loss and victories. –Maddie

My daughter, who is not a huge reader, is loving her copy!  She is reading Pineapples in Peril and I don’t have to push her to read the 15 minutes she’s supposed to read every day! –A Mom
My son was super excited to show his class the book that you autographed. He has already finished the book and thoroughly enjoyed it. He is already excited about the next book in the series! –A Mom
My thirteen-year-old twin girls just finished reading Pineapples in Peril and both loved the book. One particularly focused on the characters. "I felt like I knew them by the time I got to the end." She also enjoyed how the author built the plot in such a way that kept her guessing. My other twin writes: "What I liked was the never-ending excitement, as well as the atmosphere of intensity growing with every page. I enjoyed how Leilani includes her brother even though he gets on her nerves." –A Mom
Bethany loved your first book! I will be ordering this one for her. –A Mom
The fifth-grade class in library this morning were so excited to check out Pineapples in Peril! Also, a few of the students who had purchased books were carrying them into library. I had one student tell me she has already read it all the way through one time and is in the process of reading it a second time because "it is soooo good!" –C. Reed, Librarian

Endorsements--Pineapples in Peril
Read What They're Saying!!

“Pineapples in Peril reminds me of the wonderful mysteries I used to read as a kid, wholesome suspenseful and fun.  Middle grade kids as well as adults will enjoy the Hawaiian Island Detective Club series.  What a great combination—mystery, suspense and Hawaii!  I'm looking forward to reading the entire series and recommending it to my grandchildren.” Patricia H. Rushford, Edgar nominee and award winning author of the Jennie McGrady Mysteries, the Max & Me Mysteries, the Angel Delaney Mysteries and the MacAllister Files.

“Cheryl Martin has a divine gift for writing wholesome fiction for young people. As a homeschool mom of more than 23 years, I am thrilled to recommend her delightful stories to those in and out of the homeschooling community. It's hard to find quality fiction you can trust with your kids. I'm glad we now have the much-needed Hawaiian Island Detective Club to fill a big gap in young people's fiction today!” Karla Akins, author of O Canada, Her Story

“Pineapples in Peril is a delightful middle grade mystery debut from author Cheryl Martin. A Nancy Drew novel for the twenty-first century, Pineapples is packed with investigative fun that will bring young readers back for more adventures with the Hawaiian Island Detective Club.” Jill Williamson, Christy Award-winning author of By Darkness Hid and To Darkness Fled

Pineapples in Peril, Book One of The Hawaiian Island Detective Club series, will have mom and dad as well as their middle-readers, laughing out loud. When pineapple fields are being vandalized, Leilani and friends decide it’s time to turn their childhood mystery club into a real investigative team. Add in a pesty younger brother, Kimo, and a stronger-than-puppy-love crush on her bff’s brother, and you have enough action to carry you from page one to the end before you even know what happened. This entire series has any age appeal, so that while geared to middle-readers, I don’t know of anyone who won’t be swept into the action-packed storylines. Cheryl writes with the ease of a seasoned author, each page dripping with fun-packed suspense. If you’ve been looking for just the right combination of intrigue and exceptional writing, you’ve grabbed the right book. Can’t you just smell the syrupy sweet pineapples?” Linda Glaz, Literary Agent, and author of Polar Bear Plunge

“Who's responsible for the damage to a pineapple plantation in Hawaii? And what's the real reason behind it? Four young detectives set out to solve the case. Intended for readers 8 - 13, especially girls, this mystery will keep them turning the pages to find out what happens next.” Max Elliot Anderson, multi-published author of action/adventure books for young readers.
