"The rest should be a piece of cake."

Any additional comments?

The third, but completely stand alone, book in the Lady Justice series, continuing the musings and adventures of the retired realtor turned cop. This time, following his previous fun as a Presley impersonator, Walt decides to take bride-to-be, Maggie, to Hawaii for their marriage ceremony as well as two friends to act as participants. But the course of even the truest of loves does not always go smoothly ...

This is such a delightful series and narrator, George Kuch, gives yet another impeccable performance as the witty, grumpy and very human Walter. His other characterisations are good, too, but Walt truly lives through Kuch's voice, warm with just the right hints of emotion, whatever is called for in the text.
Although not my favourite in the series so far, this was such an enjoyable romp with gentle (but very funny) humour, I would recommend it to anyone and I look forward to book four.

Book 3

Any additional comments?

This is a great third installment in the Lady Justice Series. It starts off trouble free with Walt and Maggie avoiding then planning their wedding. But if you are familiar with Walt and his gang of friends, you know that things are never peaceful for very long. Lots of action in this audiobook.

Murderer and Mystery Excellence!!

The plot line is intriguing and keeps the reader guessing until the end. I loved it and can't wait to read the next in this series.stories in this series reveal realistic investigative procedures and the characters are well developed. His stories are well written and readers can easily become drawn strongly into the story line. Highly recommend.

Alright

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This is not my favourite of the series. A lot of it felt quite confusing and I struggled to follow the plot due to the various twists and turns that it took. It felt like most of it was dedicated to Hawaiian history which I didn't find that interesting.

However, the characters were still pretty funny. I enjoyed the interaction between Walt and the other characters.

A wonderful collaboration between author&narrator

Lady Justice Gets Lei'd is my third enjoyable read/listen from author Robert Thornhill. Although I own over 20 of his books I’d never gotten around to reading one until I got Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P. in Audio. An enjoying & entertaining read with more mystery than the first 2 books. Filled with puns & one-liners, that were just plain fun. Narrator George Kuch again adds greatly to the listening enjoyment with his wide variety of entertaining voices & inflections. I’ll definitely be reading more from Thornhill! (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

I really like this series!

Nothing ever goes as planned for Walter Williams and gang. The majority of the romance/mystery story takes place in a lovely location filled with rich ancient history and those that wish to protect it. The characters are likable, believable, & quite comical. The unfortunate situations that they find themselves in often are hilarious and well written. The narrator did a fantastic job.

Crime in Hawaii

Walt Williams gets immersed in Hawaiian culture in Robert Thornhill’s Lady Justice Gets Lei’d. After getting engaged to his longtime sweetheart, Maggie, in Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes, the pair get cold feet about making this major life change, so Walt stays busy with his policing. One day Maggie gets free tickets to a museum, where the pair enjoy a lecture about newly discovered artifacts from Hawaii and where the curator, a native Hawaiian known as Uncle Ray, speaks to Walt and Maggie, giving each a Hawaiian name, which they later learn mean Daughter of Royalty for Maggie and Protector for Walt. He also gives Walt an amulet of an obsidian black lizard that he says will give Walt direction. Then, a couple days after the lecture, Walt and his partner, Ox, are sent to examine the body of a homeless man, only for Walt to recognize him as Uncle Ray. The man was killed with an ancient Hawaiian weapon with shark teeth embedded in it as retribution for disturbing the artifacts and the ancient Hawaiian gods.

Walt takes a journey, both literally and figuratively into Hawaiian culture and traditions. With the discussion of Hawaii, Maggie and Walt decide to go to the islands for their wedding and honeymoon, where their connections with Uncle Ray’s family gives them access to the Hawaii of the natives and not just the tourist areas. They get put in the middle of a fight over the topic of Hawaiian sovereignty and return to the ancient Hawaiian religion and culture.

This book is much more thematic than the previous two books, though it still follows the enjoyable storytelling style of the series. It is obvious that Thornhill did a thorough job of researching issues of Hawaiian culture, and the book includes some informative details about Hawaii.

George Kuch continues to do an amazing job as narrator of this series. I was already deeply impressed by his performance, but this book includes a lot of Hawaiian words and place names. Knowing nothing about the Hawaiian language, I can’t vouch for his accuracy of pronunciation, but the words sound very believable to me, and Kuch incorporates the language very smoothly into the narration.

Lady Justice Gets Lei’d is another great book by Robert Thornhill. It has a different flavor than the previous two books, but I loved it just as much as the other books. I give this book five stars!

Lady Justice series growing on me

Note: I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

The third book in the Lady Justice series takes us to Hawaii for a good portion of the story and the detail given during the characters' visit there leads one to believe the author has had first hand experience. :)

The story itself is decent enough, though it was fairly predictable in many ways (like the other two were). However, the characters are growing on me to the point that I really don't mind.

As before, the narrator does a great job at capturing the personalities of the characters and his comedic timing is pretty much spot on. Still, there is the issue of noticeable mouth noise in his audio, which may be distracting to some listeners.

If one can look past these things, they will probably enjoy journeying through the world of Walter Williams and friends.
