I enjoyed this story and especially the setting. As a Central Florida resident, it's fun to read mysteries set in a familiar place. There were a lot of sub-plots, but they weren't too hard to follow. Most ended up connected in some way.
The most frustrating thing was the cliffhanger ending. One of the murders not only isn't solved, but a similar one occurs. There seems to be a trend lately with authors leaving you hanging at the end, possibly in an effort to get you to buy more of their books. A story should be able to stand on its own. If the writing is good and the characters are well developed, readers will want more from the author. This story was okay. Not great, but definitely kept my interest. I would have read more with these characters, but trickery such as this has the opposite effect on me. Rather than seek out another, I'll most likely avoid future stories by these authors.
