"Neal's writing is persistently riveting... masterly." ~Kirkus Reviews
Grab this fast paced mystery with a twist of romance, and take a trip to Hawaii with the series that's sold more than a million copies!
I am in love with this series. One thing, a bit of a mystery to me. How did Lei and Stevens revive the rocking chair and cradle that had been burned in the old house? Said they lost everything? Oh well… Artists license😁
Amazing way to end a series of serious challenges
That keeps you up at night can not put the books down
Thank you, Toby Neal, for this series!
I just finished Bitter Feast, number 12 and last in the series, and have loved each story! As a high school English teacher with books and essays I must read for school, these Lei Crime series books have been my personal escape into the beauty and culture of Hawaii and the lives of Lei and Stephens. My husband is right behind me, reading each one as did I.
I rarely write reviews, but want to express my appreciation and respect for Ms. Neal and her wonderful cast of characters - each with his or her flaws, gifts, and story. You will smile with them, and shed tears with them. Mostly, you'll join them as they live their lives while seeking justice for homicide victims. I will miss each and every one of them!
