Book Description

March 5 2013
Dorry Woods is notorious in Schuyler Point. Her antagonism plagues Bobbi Oliver from the day they meet. Having left Seattle in favor of the small South Carolina town, Bobbi is finding it hard enough to settle without butting heads with the town crank.

When Dorry finds out that Bobbi is the new reporter, it gets worse. Five years ago, the town paper led the charge in branding Dorry a pariah for being a lesbian and accused her of being complicit in her lover's death. Peace might have finally been possible, but Dorry's brother-in-law's body is discovered on Bobbi's front lawn.

Under equal suspicion they both know that the only ones who will help them is themselves. With hostilities set aside they are confronted with the other feelings that smolder below the surface, but Bobbi finds no comfort in them. She read the reports from five years ago-how can she care for a woman that she doesn't trust?

She recently relocated to Albuquerque, New Mexico.

2.0 out of 5 stars Myrtle Beach Mayhem March 1 2014
By E. B. MULLIGAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was looking for a romance and about a quarter of the way into the book we read about "The dead cat, mauled and partially skinned ...", that just didn't factor into a romance for me. Exceptional author, the pace of the storytelling was excellent and the characters clearly defined and whole.

Dorcas 'Dorry' Woods is a 55 year old recluse in Schuyler Point aka Marstown on the coast of South Carolina. For 20 years she has run a thriving dojang open from 6am to 8pm. 10 years ago, the town paper outed Dorry as a lesbian and cast doubt on her when her "lover" died of cancer.

30 year old Marya Brock leaves Seattle to live with her parents after she and her girlfriend of 3 years split. Marya gets a job as a reporter on the local paper. Marya is at a low point emotionally, especially feeling that her parents are shamed that she is gay.

Every couple chapters there is a chapter spoken by an anonymous person that reminds me of Norman Bates from the movie Psycho. Creepy. Next thing Dorry's brother-in-law, Denty, is found dead on Marya's front yard, a cottage she rents from Dorry. A complex resolution to the murder and a timeline going back 30 years complete the story. A resolution that left me gasping. For a terrific video author interview search 'Lizzie's Bedtime Stories Episode 42: Nat Burns'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poison Flowers does not disappoint! Feb. 12 2014

Nat Burns is an exceptional writer, and I found this new book does not disappoint. Intriguing characters and plot. Made me feel involved with the story, and I can't say that about most lesbian fiction! I highly recommend this book.
