Toby Nealabout this book: I wrote the Lei Crime Series because I wanted to read fast-paced, suspenseful mysteries with a romantic twist that captured the "real Hawaii." Blood Orchids, with 4.6 stars on 134 reviews, successfully does this.
Lei is the kind of woman who leaps before she looks… This time it might get her killed.
Courageous, vulnerable policewoman Lei Texeira's past issues are triggered when she finds a crime scene where two young girls were drowned. Her intuitive and relentless drive to solve the case attract Michael Stevens, the dedicated lead detective, and a stalker who pursues her,pushing her to breaking even as she closes in on the killer—someone closer than she can imagine.
• "Every bit as good as Patterson's Women's Murder Club, this series delivers a clever plot tucked into a lush island setting we can almost see and touch as Neal's heroine pushes to solve her crimes. A bonus is learning so much about Hawaii's beautiful culture and people in the process. Lei is tender, self effacing, a little crazy and a lot refreshing. Really enjoyed it!" — from Amazon customer review
