Tropical Scam by Susan LaDue
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This is the second book I have read in this series and I find that my review for this book is going to be very similar to the first. The author has presented well researched information on real estate fraud in Central and South America. The heroine is drawn into conducting an investigation when friends of hers are about to be evicted from their rental home.
The mystery proceeds logically throughout the book, but there is never a sense of urgency, even after the h is physically beaten because of her investigation. It reads almost like a police report rather than a novel.
There is a romance taking place between the heroine and her boyfriend, but once again, they don't seem to be truly attracted to each other. They seem like an old married couple.
I would love to see this author inject some emotion into her writing.
