  12. Susi Galley

    Before reading the Lei Crime series I did not know much about Hawaii. Now I want to go there and it made my bucket list. I really enjoy the setting.

    • Janet oakley

      Hawaii is a special place. I went out on a one way ticket in 1969. Stayed, went to UH and met my husband there. There are ways to do it not so expensively.

  13. Diane Lowe

    New Lei books can’t wait to read them I am so glad to have found Toby Neal books.

  14. MS Barb

    I haven’t read any of these books yet (so many books & not enough time!) but I enjoy books w/ settings in Hawaii! 🙂

  15. Virginia Jones

    I enjoy mystery and suspense stories. Toby Neal provides plenty of that. I also love Hawaii, I actually took a trip there a few years ago so I’m familiar with the road to Hanna and a few places. Refreshes the memories.

  16. Susan

    I love the Leicrime books, and just downloaded several from the books series above. Finished the two I had about Kiki’s story, and part way in another.
    Makes me want to go back to Hawaii, and visit some of the other islands 🌴

  17. Joseph s

    Why are all your readers women? I am a man and I love the story about a strong woman! I think you are missing out by not marketing your books to men. I think there’s a big market out here for men like me he would love your books.

    • Corinne O'Flynn

      Glad to see you here, Joseph! Lei totally rocks. I wonder what the ratio of men and women fans is–no doubt it’s heavily female. Curious to know if the marketing is aimed at women or if women are just more active in the places where authors advertise.

    • Amy Hallmark

      And we actually do have some male writes – Dylan is one of them and he does mystery. Also check out Scott Bury, David Schoonover, and Ron Logan. They all write great stories about strong women that are more on the mystery side.

  18. Diane

    Enjoyed meeting authors and sharing at the party! I’m looking forward to reading more by Janet Oakley, Donna McNicol and Kayla Thomas.

It’s the best of both worlds!
