Of course we get to enjoy the sexy love/ detective crime story that we've come to expect from the Lei Crime Series, but this time we are also taken on a guided tour of the exotic cloud forest of Maui, with its remarkable collection of endangered song birds.
Toby Neal always manages to give us a little something extra.....introduction to a unique locale or a tantalizing side trip into anthropology or ecology or biology or psychology or.....the list goes on.
Personally, I think this reveals the natural teacher in our author. She has so many interests, so much intellectual curiosity, and she cannot help but share these things in which she so delights, with us. We readers end up being the lucky beneficiaries of her intellectual generosity!
In Shattered Palms we are drawn into tropical ornithology in such a natural and endearing way as to make us all feel that we are walking along side Lei, through the natural habitat of the kiwikiu and the 'i'iwi.
To enrich your enjoyment of Shattered Palms, may I suggest that you visit the website of Toby's husband, Mike Neal. Mike is, among his many talents, a gifted nature photographer, and his photographs of Hawaii's native birds helped this mainlander do more than imagine the species that featured so prominently in Shattered Palms. Mike's beautiful photographs can be found under "Hawaiian native birds" in the Photo Galleries menu at Nealstudios.
For those who enjoy a good mystery, served up with the added enjoyment of learning something new, Toby Neal never disappoints. Thank you Toby and Mike!
In typical Texeira fashion, Lei is anything but "by the book," in her crime-solving or in her personal life. If chasing a bad guy means that she might not make it to her wedding on time... well, everyone will just have to understand, including the groom.
I love Toby Neal's storytelling, especially in this series, because she always addresses issues related to her beloved native Hawaii. In this book, it's the exotic and beautiful birds that inhabit the higher elevations of Haleakala, Maui's inactive volcano. Someone is poaching these lovely, endangered creatures, and someone is trying to save them. But how are the two connected?
Will Lei and Stevens make it to the altar? And is someone trying to prevent their "happily ever after?" This book will have your pulse quickening at every page turn, as Lei races to find the clues in time.
In this recent installment, Neal includes not only the envy-sparking depictions of some of the more beautiful and breathtaking aspects of wild Hawaii (in painstaking detail that only someone who has experienced it firsthand can pull off), but also incorporates a social theme of hunting and poaching on protected land.
I especially like her main character in this series, a no-nonsense woman who doesn't feel the threat to her feminism that causes her to behave in an "in your face" way that so many writers resort to. She's just a female, that's all there is to it. She's fully capable at her job and well-regarded, and I appreciate that. Books in which the woman constantly has to prove herself really are a disservice to women.
