    One thought on “Blue Poppy”

    1. Blue Poppy is the second book in the, "A Pacific Northwest Mystery", series. What I liked about this book is all the details of the area in Washington State. I live here and it's nice reading about where you live. There are several stories going on all at once. Bodies keep popping up and there are suspects everywhere. From the brothers running the purfumerie that are growing Blue Poppy's on Federal land, to the people of the town. Everyone has their own agenda. I loved all the characters of the [...]

    2. Aside from the descriptions of the flora and fauna of Washington State I could find nothing to recommend this book. Even the character's names were silly and childish. The idea of a miniature size state employee being the daughter of a world renowned actress was off putting from the beginning. I actually laughed out loud when I read the actresses' legs had been insured by Lloyds of London, I didn't think that had happened since the 50's. I must admit I did enjoy some of information regarding but [...]

    3. I rarely do this, but I quit reading the book after about 10 pages. I didn't like the author's style; she packed too much into one sentence. It was like reading an English 101 paper where the student needed to include a fixed number of adjectives with an expected number of words per paragraph.

    4. This is the first of her books I have read and found it intriguing. Kept me guessing as to the murderer. Some areas were a little "wordy"; otherwise, a good read.

    5. Bittersweet story. Too much Buddhist thought, which drags the story. Interesting travel, but it made me glad I haven't gone around the world. Touching memorial to her baby son.
