Huh? Why? and Punch Tour Review and Giveaway

Huh Why and Punch Tour Review and Giveaway

My Review

Software engineer Marty, his two college-aged children, his sister Laney, her two young daughters, his girlfriend Meghan, his neighbor Mrs. Kim, and Laney’s family dog Buddy are on vacation in Hawaii. But it’s not much of a vacation for Marty as he is pushed into helping the police solve a murder! According to Marty, it’s a locked room murder because a secret, locked room is found near the scaffolding from which the victim fell. This is definitely not the usual way to define that phrase. Huh? Why? And Punch is more of a cozy mystery with a male protagonist, which is unusual enough by itself.

The fiancé of Mrs. Kim’s cousin, Kiki, has fallen to his death. The police believe he was pushed. Yet, no one, including Kiki, seems very upset. As Marty assists the police investigation, Mrs. Kim’s family’s secrets start to unravel.

It’s always a treat to see Marty bumbling through another investigation. Adding a new girlfriend, Mrs. Kim’s backstory, and the beautiful Hawaiian setting to this humorous story is just the icing on top. 4 stars to this lighthearted cozy mystery!

Thanks to the author and Great Escapes Book Tours for a copy in exchange for my honest review.

When murder crashes his vacation, can a techie in paradise still catch some waves while snaring a killer?

Marty Golden is ready to kick back at the beach. When his neighbor offers free rooms in Hawaii, the software engineer is quick to round up his girlfriend, sister, and nieces for the luau of a lifetime. But his arrival at the resort turns his sun-filled hopes into hunches about homicide after he encounters a very deceased and inconvenient body.

Pressured into helping, a grudging Marty uses his sharp attention to detail to hone in on a crucial clue missed by the police. But his half-hearted investigation spirals out of control with wild chases, burglaries, and secret passageways before the reluctant sleuth gets serious when he’s suddenly added to the target list.

Can Marty hula his way to the real culprit before he’s lei’d to rest?

Huh? Why? and Punch can be read standalone and is the humorous fifth book in the Silicon Valley cozy mystery series. If you like brilliant but bumbling heroes, crazy fun supporting casts, and daring escapades, then you’ll love this laugh-out-loud whodunit.

Buy Huh? Why? and Punch today to dive into a unique taste of paradise!

About Marc Jedel

Marc Jedel writes humorous murder mysteries. He credits his years of marketing leadership positions in Silicon Valley for honing his writing skills and sense of humor. While his high-tech marketing roles involved crafting plenty of fiction, these were just called emails, ads, and marketing collateral.

For most of Marc’s life, he’s been inventing stories. As he’s gotten older, he’s encountered more funny and odd people and situations. This has made it even easier for him to write what he knows and make up the rest. It’s a skill that’s served him well, both as an author and marketer.

The publication of Marc’s first novel, UNCLE AND ANTS, gave him permission to claim “author” as his job. This leads to much more interesting conversations than answering, “marketing.”

Like his character, Marty from the Silicon Valley Mystery series, Marc now lives in Silicon Valley, works in high-tech, and enjoys bad puns. Like his characters Jonas and Elizabeth from the Ozarks Lake Mystery series, Marc grew up in the South and spent plenty of time in and around Arkansas.

Along with all his protagonists, Marc too has a dog, although his is neurotic, sweet, and small, with little appreciation for Marc’s humor.
