Overview

Orchid Blues (Holly Barker Series #2) by Stuart Woods

Holly's wedding festivities are shattered-by murder-and Holly vows to find the culprits. With nothing to go on but the corpse of an innocent bystander, Holly discovers evidence that leads her into the midst of a clan whose members are as mysterious as they are zealous. Holly's father, Ham, a retired Army chief master sergeant, is her ticket into their strange world. What he finds there boggles the mind-and draws Holly, Ham, and Holly's Doberman Daisy into a whirlpool of crazed criminality from which even the FBI can't save them.

A good story but marred by a major plot screw-up. First, a major character enters in the beginning, Stone Barrington, then he just disappears. His airplane's tail number is N123TF. Later on, long after Stone is gone, we suddenly see the antagonist "John" flying a plane with the exact same N123TF tail number. I could have let it go, but the number is continually in your face, like it's important. But no, it's not! Holly never makes the connection. I think what happened was that early on in the writing of this novel, the author wanted to weave the tail number into the mystery, but then couldn't figure out how to do it. So the connecting plot mechanism is dropped from the plot, but the tail number remains. This was either a global cut and paste error or the author sent the wrong draft to the publisher. Hello, it's an ebook. Can't someone correct this? The discrepancy really spoiled the ending for me, and will continue to for alert mystery readers.

Orchid Blues - Holly Barker is quickly becoming a favorite of mine!! For a more in depth review, please visit my blog, Chorley Chronicals! I have found that I rather enjoy the Holly Barker series, and found that I absolutely enjoyed listening to Orchid Blues, Book #2, by Stuart Woods! I absolutely love Holly as a character! She is the perfect woman character for me. She is strong, charismatic, independent, and doesn't give a darn what anyone else says or thinks, she does what she feels is right! She reminds me of Lisa Gardner's D.D. Warren. Holly Barker is quickly becoming one of my favorite leading ladies. And Ham, her father, is just as awesome! He is witty and brave and is obviously where Holly gets all of her great traits from! I'm so glad that he continued on in this series in book two! The story was intense and suspenseful! It wasn't your typical detective mystery, which is what I liked most about it! It involved the Orchid Beach Sheriff's Department, the FBI, and mainly the Secret Service, just to give you an idea of the hugeness of the crime at hand, with Ham right at it's center! I really enjoyed the fact that there were two narrators for the reading of Orchid Blues. Dick Hill and Susie Breck are such wonderful selections for Holly and Ham. Granted, they do read the other characters, but they do the main characters such justice! I also thoroughly enjoyed the music provided at the beginning and end of each disc.  Overall, I can't wait to continue with this series, and loved listening to Orchid Blues.
