I really enjoyed reading this book. Jordon and Seth were interesting characters, and I enjoyed the fact that they were able to find eachother again after all those years and fall in love again.

More like three and a 1/2 stars July 31 2006
By A. Rowley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I won't describe the plot because I think the literary summary says it all. Instead, I will only state my opinions about Black Orchid. I wasn't exactly sure if this book would appeal to me after reading the back of the jacket cover, but I have enjoyed Karen Harper's books in the past, so I picked it up on sale anyway and gave it a try. It was a fast read that held my interest throughout most of the story line. A few of the Seminole aspects were a bit confusing at first, due to the lack of description or explanation. There were plenty of suspects which kept the suspense building until the end. Although predictable for me, it may not be for most readers. Including the twist. The romance was adequate for a romantic suspense where the suspense is more prevalent than the romance, but the author had built up the idea for a great deal of tension and passion between the main characters and then let it all fizzle out.

Is it worth buying?

Perhaps. Look for it on sale or check it out from the library if you can. However, it most likely is not a book you will cherish, or even remember after some time and therefore not worth keeping stored away with other thrilling reads.

Harper's Black Orchid seems well research. I had a hard time putting the book down. Some interesting twists. I'll certainly consider reading another Karen Harper book.

I love Karen Harper. She provides a great story and wonderful character interaction...she is also one of the few authors I can safely give to my mom to read. :)
