"The missing man is a Silicon Valley big shot known to all as the Big Kahuna. Nick and Kate's only lead takes them to Hawaii, where the missing man's free-spirit, drop-out son spends his days looking for the perfect wave and his nights puffing weed. To get close to the Kahuna's son, Kate and Nick go undercover as a married couple in the big-wave surfer community on Maui's North Shore. Living a laid-back, hippy-dippy lifestyle isn't exactly in Kate's wheelhouse, but the only thing more horrifying is shacking up with Nick Fox--even if he does look pretty gnarly on a longboard. If they don't catch a break soon, waves aren't the only thing she's going to be shredding (or bedding).

There is a very promising story line behind this novel and some really funny character interactions. But I am giving up on this one. I laughed a lot, but in the end I wanted to have more story and less hilarious (and unrealistic) character interactions.

I am halfway through the big Kahuna and loving it. I have tried reading the books Evanovich has coauthored with Lee Goldberg but I could not finish them because they were so bad. They were all action with very little evidence that she had done anything other than lend her name to the books so they would sell. I cannot wait until the next one she coauthors with her son. I simply have to rate this book as a 4 out of 5.

With the previous Fox and O'Hare the bantering, the sexual tension, the cast of characters was like an old Hollywood romantic comedy. ‘The Big Kahuna’ is missing every bit of that and falls flat. The silly is there, the charm isn't.

I feel that the authors were writing to the blatant sexuality of movies today. The characters we've come to know, those actually included, no longer sizzle. They are like over-cooked asparagus, colorless and limp. Had it not been for that, the chase, with its cast of wacky characters could have been rather fun.

Sorry Janet, while your son Peter deserves a place in your heart, Lee Goldberg is crucial as a co-author.

It’s taken me 6 days to read a 1 day book. Wish I’d read the comments first. She should have stuck with Lee Goldberg.

I used to really like this author but her last few books have been hard to finish. I got about halfway through this one and really couldn't care how it ended so I stopped reading to move on to another book.

This book tried to be funny, but it was mostly annoying.
Didn't even finish it.

The title on the cover of the book does not match the catalog's title. Who messed up the cataloging?
