I really enjoyed listening to Hothouse Orchid and thought it was really well read. I'm a fan of thrillers and mysteries, so I enjoyed the storyline and characters in Hothouse Orchid. My only minor disappointment with Hothouse Orchid was that I felt the ending of the novel was a bit on the weak side... I would have enjoyed a stronger ending much better.
Here's an overview for Hothouse Orchid from Barnes & Noble:
A brand-new page-turning Holly Barker novel from the perennially entertaining New York Times-bestselling author Stuart Woods.
After Special Agent Holly Barker lets international terrorist Teddy Fay slip through her fingers for a second time, the CIA thinks she might want a long vacation, at least until Teddy is captured and the bad publicity has blown over. So Holly returns to her hometown of Orchid Beach, Florida, where she had been police chief for many years. But a very unpleasant surprise awaits her. Many years earlier, Holly and another female army officer had brought charges against their commanding officer for sexual harassment, attempted rape, and rape. Holly had managed to fight him off, but the other woman, a young lieutenant, had not. The officer in question was acquitted of all charges, and has also left the army-for a job as Orchid Beach's new police chief.
Will Holly return to the CIA? Or will she challenge her old nemesis for control of the Orchid Beach Police Department?
Overall Hothouse Orchid is a fast, fun read that I'd enjoyed quite a bit. I'm giving Hothouse Orchid a 7 star out of 10 star rating.
Until my next post, happy reading!!
