Blood Orchids by Toby Neal Book Summary
Paradise has a dark side.
She can't stop thinking about a drowned girl's face... because it reminds her of her own.
Overcoming a past filled with scars, Lei makes a life for herself and her dog, Keiki, as a cop in the sleepy Big Island town of Hilo. When a routine patrol turns up two murdered teens, Lei's world is rocked. She knows one of the girls, and she can't rest until she finds answers—not only about the victims, but about her own shadowed past as well.
She'll look so beautiful...once she's dead.
He knows he's twisted. He knows he's wrong. He just doesn't care. But now there's a female cop on his trail that won't give up, and she's gonna be next.
"Blood Orchids satisfies on every level. A powerful talent is on the scene, whole-heartedly recommended."-Drew Cross, former police officer, author of BiteMarks

GoodIf Patricia Cornwell wrote about a tough lady cop in Hawaii, this is what she would come up with. It kept my interest, the writing was descriptive and I even learned a few things about Hawaii. Great for a free book!.Ryleh CarterScore: 4/5

Blood OrchidsHow did Toby Neal get all this into one novel? This author has got something really going on here, and this is the first I have read of her work. Definitely NOT the last. Blood Orchids is packed to bursting with the crimes, the police procedural, the suspense, and the extremely full and complicated personalities of the main character, not-quite-detective Lei Texeira, and her police colleagues, but of the character of place, as well. An excellent read, full of mind pictures, feelings, a little romance, a lot of goodies, and a heck of a good story..Lady CharletonScore: 5/5

Blood OrchidsWas really looking forward to reading this novel!....but geeesh! I can't get through the first chapter! Hope if I ever need a cop, it won't be her. And how did she EVER pass a driving test when every few minutes she blacks out! Hope there's a better middle and ending, because this book really needs it! A rating of one star because I couldn't submit without a rating! Sorry!.Zanylady1030444Score: 1/5

Blood OrchidsI have just finished reading Blood Orchids a second time, and I like it even more than the first! The first reading had me racing through to get Lei out of the book alive! Between her ptsd from an abusive childhood and her present day danger from a serial rapist and killer, Lei struggles just to do her job and survive. This time I got to appreciate the incredible environment of Hawaii, the musing inside the killer’s mind, and Lei’s raw courage against terrifying attackers. And her dog is as brave as she is! Left me wanting more! Granny Mary.GrannymartScore: 5/5

Blood OrchidsReading a book set in Hawaii is like visiting an old friend - in this case Hawaii 50 of my youth (for some reason, not so fond of the new 50). A delicious familiarness yet so much totally unfamiliar!! I enjoyed meeting Lei and Stevens and look forward to reading more ....EileepamScore: 5/5
