I really want to like this book and to be fair, there were a few spots that I enjoyed; however, I found it to not have much substance and was just so-so for me. Elena, our hero, has a chip on her shoulder about her previous jobs/life, which leads the reader to say, "put on your big-girl panties and get over it already!" After a coworker turns up dead and half eaten by an alligator, she feels she needs to be a detective again and find her killer. Of course this leads to a lot of conflict (remember that chip on the shoulder?), blah, blah, blah. In the end, the actual killer is a surprise, just don't think about the logistics. Perhaps I've read too many serious murder/crime drama/police procedurals and they have jaded me for a more fluff-murder novel.
