What is Palm Trees & Snowflakes about?

A Lei Crime Kindle World Hawaii mystery 

Snowflake has a whole new meaning in Hawaii. The new designer drug being trafficked through Oahu gives users the perfect high–and slowly kills them.

In Honolulu, where the palm trees are strung with lights for the holidays, FBI Special Agents Vanessa Storm and Ken Yamada have their hands full trying to stop this deadly flow. Faulty intel brings the agents into a deadly firefight, which yields even more puzzles.

How do the drug lords change their smuggling routes and methods with every single shipment? Vanessa’s handsome, charming, and untrustworthy ex-boyfriend might have the answer.

About Scott Bury


  1. All of them, but first Oahu, because I have friends there that I haven’t seen in many years.

  2. Maui would be my choice. I love your book in the Lei Crime Kindle World. Thanks.

  3. I’d go back to Oahu first, but couldn’t stand to stop there. Since money and time are no object, I’d have to visit them all.

  4. Penny Magiary says

    Hawaii, have seen Oahu

  5. Dale Morris says

    Lanai – Privacy, peaceful and quiet sound like a heavenly way to unwind. Might not ever leave if I get there.

  6. Angie Nakamura Lail says

    Maui no ka oi! My dad was born and grew up there.

  7. Kauai, because it’s pretty and doesn’t get as many tourists.

  8. Oh! I’d have to go back to Oahu first! Many friends and memories there…

  9. You make it difficult to select “just one” island when it comes to Hawaii. I would have to say Oahu, only because I would love to revisit some of my old haunts of when I was stationed at Pearl Harbor in the mid-late 1960s. I’m sure some things have changed but still there’s Diamond Head, North Shore, and a couple of secret places known only to the natives and a few select. LOL.

  10. Kauai is my choice. Have always wanted to go there but never had the chance. Hawaii and its history has intrigued me since I was in elementary school. Had pen pals who I wish I could have kept in touch with since then.

  11. Sue Alexander Devers says

    Molokai has always interested me–just from the name! But really all of them fascinate me!

    • If you are fascinated by Molokai, you should check out a novel by Alan Brennart, if you haven’t already. It is called ‘Molokai’ and spans many years. It is a very emotional book.

  12. I don’t care. I’ve never been there and would love to go. If I have to choose, I’d say Oahu.

  13. First, I’d like to see Kauai. But if I’m traveling that far, I’d have to stay and see Maui, Oahu and the Big Island, Hawaii. Looking forward to reading your new book!

  14. Barbara Tobey says

    Maui, but since money and time don’t matter, how about a boat to to visit as many as possible. Bobbipad at gmail dot com

  15. Heidi Fountain says

    Molokai! I have a grieving friend there who needs a hug!

  16. Big Island

  17. Sonya Steele says

    I would love to see them all, but Kauai has always sounded particularly lovely.

  18. Hmmm. I want to visit them all!
    But back to Maui I think or Kauai
    wait, no, how about Oahu… LOL
    Let me go for a month and visit them all!!!

  19. Geez, that’s a toughie. I have been to Oahu and the big Island, so I would probably go with Kauai.

  20. I would have to research and go to the smallest and most remote island there!

  21. Linda Kish says

    Kauai because it is so pretty and not as commercialized as as other places.
