Death in the Orchid Garden by Ann Ripley
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
The opening description of swimming in the man-made lagoon at the hotel in all of its exotic beauty lured me right into the story. However, the extreme detail continued throughout the book, vivid descriptions of place and clothing and people. Way too much detail for this reader. It was a safari through the palm fronds to find the story.
The violence seemed to move this story out of the cozy genre into gruesome territory albeit with azure water and lush plant life.
Sad to say, I am disappointed in this outing with Ann Ripley.
