Genre: Thriller, police procedural.
Setting: Orchid Beach, a small town "the way Florida should have turned out but didn't."
Reason for Reading: Wanted a distraction.

Cover: A pink and red orchid on a bright red background. The author's name is embossed in gold.
First line: "Sara Tennant arrived at her office building in downtown Miami promptly at seven forty-five A.M., as was her habit."
Best part: In this book I enjoyed watching Holly interact with the different men in her life - her father, her second-in-command, her FBI buddy, her friends and love interests and suspects.
Worst part: Daisy didn't have a big part in this book and that disappointed me.
