Lost Palm

 This is a great quick read by Chris Niles.  I received it as promotional book to try and am glad I took the opportunity to read it.  It is a short novella set in Shark Key which is a welcome locale in the middle of a snowy cold month here in Chicago.  It is a fun blend of the legend of Ernest Hemingway's presence in Key West with a modern mystery story.  Ms Niles does a wonderful job of describing the local geography and scenery as well as capturing a bit of the crazy, unique scene that is Key West.   

I look forward to reading more books in the series

My rating: 0 of 5 stars

This was an entertaining novella set in the beautiful Keys. The descriptions of the local terrain and the town of Key West are wonderful balances to the cozy mystery story. The story is a fun blend of current day Key West and a historic figure who is associated with Key West, Ernest Hemingway. It is a quick read that is an introduction to a larger series of mysteries that I look forward to reading more about.
