Promo post, that is. It’s Linda and I’m here to introduce a lovely lady Honey Konani, the mother of teenaged Xavier (or Xav, as he prefers). She actually called JJ to ask if she might have the honors. JJ—Rey and I—were happy to oblige. Over to you, Honey . . .
Hi. I’ve never done this before, so please bear with me. I met the three private eyes from the Triple Threat Investigation Agency when JJ brought home Xavier after a bad bout with drugs.
Before I get into that, please note that it is Day 4 of the Can You Hula Like Hilo Hattie? promotion. You can purchase it for .99 cents—today through November 17.
For those of you who follow this blog, you know that this first official case has the three women attempting to discover the secret of the young and pretty wife of a rich, elderly gentleman. Sadly, she’s found murdered in the Pacific. In the quest to find the killer, they happen upon drug dealers, gang members . . . and Xavier, in a dark dank alley.
Regrettably, I’d grown accustomed to his “flights of freedom”, as I called them. Oh, I fretted as any mother would, but I no longer experienced hysterics or despair as I had the first couple of times he’d ventured off (“staying with a friend”, “sailing with a school chum”, “visiting a cousin on Big Island”). My belief in God kept me sane and calm, and hopeful that my son would one day see the light and stop doing drugs. Yes, I’d known for a while, but hadn’t voiced it, not to him, not to my daughter, not even to myself. To do so would have meant acknowledging a bleak truth.
Thanks to these three women, Xavier eventually turned his life around; he’s still clean and seeing life with fresh eyes. I’ll be eternally grateful to them.
