About Coconut Island
Memories are dangerous.
Investigative reporter Wendy Watanabe is no stranger to mysteries, but can she handle one steeped in her own family’s history? A box of letters from a WWII soldier stationed on the Big Island is found at the Hilo Historical Society and unlocks painful memories for Wendy’s Great Aunt Bee. Bee’s older sister was swept away in the 1946 tsunami, but now Wendy suspects she was murdered first. As she delves into the mystery, Wendy meets a group of nonagenarians who were at the USO center on Coconut Island during the war. One is a hero. Another is a cold-blooded murderer.
The novella at its heart is about love. Love for a sister thought lost in the 1946 tsunami that wiped out Hilo and a love story between a local Japanese girl and G.I. during WWII. He ever forgot her.

And now my recipe: Fried Chicken Hawaiian-style
When I lived in Hilo, my neighbor, Mrs. Santos, used to make this all the time. The recipe below is how I remembered with a little help from the Internet. I decided, however, to quickly fry the chicken up and then finish it off in the oven. It tasted just fine.
