Absolutely brilliant. What a well written tale. Almost ever page ha a new e vent - and it was not until the las but one chapter that I finally guessed the solution to several mysteries. I would recommend it to everyone, and I can't wait for the next book in the series.

I am 87% through this book. The writing style and language implys this book is written for early teen readers, but is was not in the teen section.
The pace is slow, with massive padding of meaningless conversations that at this stage still have not contributed to the plot and other descriptive scenes that could be heavily edited to maintain the pace.
I think this book of 96,000 words would be a better read at a well edited 65,000 words.

Review by: Dennis Foxon on Dec. 29, 2012 :
Jo Cazimer and Kate Snow are attractive characters and the story moves along at a decent pace. The teens in the story are well drawn and we see Julie develop from a not very likeable child to someone we care about.
I did manage to anticipate the supposed twist at the end but this didn't really spoil the story for me because the characters mattered more than the plot.
It is true that the editing is poor and if you are the kind of person who is driven to distraction by that then beware. Otherwise, this is a fine read.

I love mysteries and couldn't put this down. The characters were well developed and the plot was a nail biter. Looking forward to more mysteries from Ms. Kirkland.

I've read and loved every romance that Rainy Kirkland has written, and it turns out that her mysteries are just as great.

Ms. Kirkland's books always have twists and turns that surprise and delight readers. Her newest, FLORIDA HEAT,is an excellent example. Just when the reader believes he/she has solve the murder, Ms. K writing points in a totally different direction.
If you want a quick read, with plenty of suspense,check this out.

Just what you want in a mystery, edge of your seat, reading, and continued page turning because you can't wait to see what happens next, until you're done. Then you want to go back and read it again, to savor.

I enjoyed "Florida Heat". The story moved quickly with unexpected twists and turns. The crime solving and cast of characters kept me engaged. I look forward to the next installment.....who done it?

Review by: Julian Cage on Oct. 07, 2012 :
Structurally, as a story, this is fine. We have a set-up, we have a crime, we're ready to go. But there's two major problems to it. The first is the very poor copy-editing. There are missing and misplaced commas all over the place. This renders the prose, which is otherwise decent if uncompelling, incredibly distracting and takes away from the actual story. If Kirkland could sit down with a good copy editor and go through this very carefully, it would let readers focus on the story rather than its language--and this would be a real point in the book's favor. The second and more serious issue is the void at the center of the story. If we're going to have Jo as the sleuth, we need to know enough about her as a character--as a human being--in order to identify with her and therefore root for her to solve the crimes. This could be done very simply: in the first scene with her and Aggie, take a couple of paragraphs scattered throughout the scene to establish 1) who she is: what drives her? 2) why did she become a probation officer, and is it a career for her or just a stepping stone to elsewhere--or what pays the bills while she does whatever it is that drives her. The same needs to be done when she gets home: she lives alone, with two dogs. Why, precisely? Is she divorced, single, gay, both, neither? What's her personal life like? Again, this could be done very simply, with just a few sentences scattered among the description of her spending the night with the dogs keeping her awake. Then she's a person rather than a void.
