Em still has to deal with her Uncle Louie s wedding to The Black Widow until his fianceé s Mercedes plunges into the Pacific. Roland Sharpe, a handsome, Hawaiian, fire-dancing detective, warns the locals not to interfere, but Em and the madcap Maidens can t help themselves and soon wind up knee deep in danger again.
