As a voracious reader, I occasionally, do enjoy a light read and these 2 stories are both very quick reads. I had a lot of trouble identifying with DJ Drake, the PI in "Dead in Rose City" and found him just a little too macho and unbelievable to keep my interest. I did not personally like him and would not purchase another story or book about this particular character. I did, however, very much like the epilog of the story. It rather redeemed the flaws of the story for me. "Murder in Honolulu" was a little more to my liking and I found myself smiling with the sassiness of Skye Delaney, tough girl detective who still had a very feminine side and was not afraid to feel. I think I could like her a whole lot in a better written offering. What I most appreciate from this author is the ability to portray the emotion of a steamy romantic scene without being overly graphic, and the ability to portray the real-life roller-coaster emotions of initial attraction, long-term attraction, and lost love. I wish character development had been more a part of the stories. Overall, however, I felt both stories were stymied by a simplistic plot which, in an attempt to give it interest, was given too many lanes which became unrealistically intertwined (especially in the DJ Drake story). It felt like the author was trying to make a few simple stories into full-length novels, perhaps without the finessing required to make a novel work well - complete storylines perhaps not fully planned out, characters’ thoughts often repeated only a few lines apart…. While there were times these stories smacked me with crisp, fresh sentences, there were others when the sloppy sentence structure was downright distracting, leaving me confused as to who this author really is. I have one other book on my reader by this author and am hoping I will see more of the positive I’ve seen in these two shorter novels.

Good old fashion two fisted P.I. takes on a mystery with a twist... Hawaiian P.I. is a female you should not mess with. She will figure it out and hunt you down...

These are two superb private eye mysteries by Flowers in the bundle. Really loved Murder in Honolulu with kick butt  PI Skye Delaney, having been to Hawaii several times.  Have also visited Portland, Oregon, where Dead in the Rose City is based and thought that PI Dean Drake was just what you picture in a private investigator as charming, witty, romantic, and more than capable of holding his own with the bad guys, in which there were many. Any fan of private eye novels will welcome these two for reading list. Also recommend the author's mysteries, Before He Kills Again, Fractured Trust, and Murder in Maui.
