Firstly thanks to the authors for providing this ARC in exchange for my honest review, I appreciate it. I am a fan of both authors so was excited to read it. I was not disappointed!
I really enjoyed this book, there was so many levels to it. I thought this was going to be a backpacker type murder like Wolf Creek but oh my goodness there is so much more to it. It's full of mystery, darkness, evil and suspense.
This story was fascinating, it kept me engaged right the way through the book. I read it in super quick time because I found it hard to put down, I really wanted to know what was going to happen next! How can something as simple as a fruit picking job at a mango farm go so wrong? Who can you trust? Who are your friends?
As I progressed through the book I had a few wow moments, the web of deceit was woven so tightly and cleverly that I couldn't guess what was going to happen next, every page turn was a pleasant surprise and kept me guessing and intrigued.
If you are a mystery/thriller fan I recommend that you read this, I thoroughly enjoyed it and don't hesitate to give it 5 stars.
I loved this book. I had read Anni Taylor's 3 previous releases, which have been among my faves of the past few years, and was excited to read this new one (thank you to the authors for providing me with a pre-release copy of Poison Orchids.). I first thought this was going to be along the lines of a Wolf Creek type of story, but it had so many other levels to it. It kept me up at night trying to preempt what was going to happen in the story and also crept into my dreams with some very dark imagery. Awesome! I loved that the characters are complex, and not necessarily likeable, but they draw you in. A zen-like retreat for backpackers on a very high end fruit picking farm, tending to beautiful orchids, getting looked after by a multi millionaire? What could go wrong there?? Ha, a lot more than I would've thought! If you love thrillers, you won't be disappointed.
