Murder in Paradise (book review)

Murder in Paradise was written by Deborah Brown.  It is the 4th book in her Paradise series.  This post was organized by Beck Valley Books.  I was provided with a copy in exchange for my honest book review.  All opinions are my own.

About the book:

Welcome to the Florida Keys! Get ready to go on vacation and lose yourself in this action packed read.

Overlooking the waters of the Biscayne Bay sits a mansion where all hell has broken loose.

Madison Westin has found herself and her bombshell best friend, Fabiana Merceau, caught up in deep trouble—yet again. This time, Fab is implicated as the only suspect in a high-profile double homicide on a beautiful private island. The girls have to act quickly and quietly, searching for a way to set the record straight and secure Fab’s freedom. Along the way, Madison must choose between two men, evade an ever-watchful mother, and dodge shady criminals as they try to solve a Murder in Paradise.

Murder in Paradise, is the fourth novel in Deborah Brown's Paradise series, can be read as a stand alone book.

Available to buy from..... and Noble

"The series is addictive, hot, fun, can't-put-em-down reads."

"Great as stand-alone reads, but they're like won't be able to devour just one!"

"Reminds me of Sin City: everyone leads a double life, women pack handguns, all have secrets, and nothing is wholesome."

My review:

I swear Deborah Brown's books get more and more fun to read.  The overall mystery (the "murder in paradise") is intriguing and keeps you guessing.  But... what really makes the book so fun for me is the individual interactions.  The non-stop chaos and insanity that Madison finds in her day to day life is amazingly unbelievable, in the best way.  Off the wall jobs.  Interesting payment plans.  Random business to run.  And just oddball and shocking turns of events on each and every page.  You just never know what Madison is going to get herself into.... or who she's going to pull into her adventures.  I have to say the juggling of vehicles kept me amused in this book... and the repeated argument over who gets to drive.  Loved it.

On top of a storyline that never stops moving... you've got Zach and Creole.  Let me just say I wouldn't want to be Madison when it comes to having the option of both of these men.  There's just no choosing.

About the Author

I've been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; writing poetry, short stories, a romance novel secretly stashed under the bed and sappy love letters. Fiction should be fun. I wanted to create the perfect beach book, to make the reader laugh, cry and cheer... and then run out and tell their friends about it.

My love of reading began when I was seven, the day I opened the cover of my first Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Mrs. P gave lessons to other children in how to behave and to me I learned to love the written word. I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.
