This time Detective Lei Texeira finds herself on Maui, and it's all about the women, from the victims to the cops to the perps. I was happy to see a medley of strong female characters and a reunion of faces from Blood Orchid and Torch Ginger.
Besides trying to solve the murder of a mysterious foreign Jane Doe, Lei comes face to face with a past that's keeping her from a healthy relationship with her boyfriend Stevens, who's looking to upgrade to husband status. Throw a few attempted murders into the mix and it's amazing that Lei can keep it together.
Another wonderful intersection of culture, crime and personal demons, you'll find yourself thinking you put the whole case together, only to be thrown at the very end in a twist you won't see coming.
I can't say enough about what Toby Neal has accomplished as an author (in ONE YEAR??!!) and what she has done to reveal Hawaii as a place of complexity and depth that despite its' beauty can be the setting for some of the darkest aspects of humanity.
Get ready to be taken for a ride from start to finish. You will be immensely entertained.
It has a lot of excitement with sex trafficking, Lei's past, Lei's future and Keiki! I love Keiki! I just felt it was too much about Lei. I get it, it's Lei Crime Series so it's supposed to be about her. But it was too much. The whole book wrapped around if she would be with Stevens again. We already know that they are together again by the ending of Torch Ginger. But why did the author have to wrap the whole story around it if she was going to be with him again? We already went through that in the second book.
I actually wanted to read more about the crime than the main character herself. She's supposed to be a strong character with a bad past. A past she can't get past or is it she won't? It just seems after going through therapy and having a great boyfriend, she's still stuck in the past.
I was really unhappy about the ending. It was a bit selfish for her and I felt like she was running away from everything. Its what she always does and I guess it didn't disappoint at the end.
The only problem? Waiting for the next Lei novel!
