Blood Orchids by Toby Neal

I recently read Blood Orchids by Toby Neal. This is my first book to review as a BookSparks Groupie. This is a very interesting book. It is a crime novel, which is not something I typically read. What makes this book interesting is it mostly focuses on Lei, a police officer, however it does give us glances into the murders head.

Lei and her partner Pono discover two dead young adults. While investigating their murder Lei discovers she has a stalker. 

Parts of the book are written in pidgin, make it extremely hard to follow. As a stickler for somewhat proper English, the pidgin made it extremely difficult to focus on the story. It took me 3 days to read the first one hundred pages because I had such a hard time focusing. Despite my rocky beginning with this book I truly enjoyed it. I read the remainder of the book in one night. I found the whole murder mystery, stalking situation incredibily captivating!

I am honestly surprised that I enjoyed this book as much as I did. From the title and the summary of the book I did not think I would because it is very unlike the books I usually read. This just shows never to judge a book by its "cover."
