I know there are a lot of books that are set in Florida, but I'm having a hard time finding ones that do a good job of describing a real sense of place. The books might take place there, they might have sparkling dialog and intricate plots, but I don't have the feeling when I read that I am truly there. I want to feel the ocean breezes and smell the salt air when I read a novel set in Florida.
What are your recommendations for books with true Florida flavor?
