Revenge in Paradise (book review & giveaway)

Revenge in Paradise was written by Deborah Brown.  It is the 6th book in her Paradise series.  This post was organized by Beck Valley Book Tours.  I was provided with a copy in exchange for my honest book review.  All opinions are my own.

About the book:

When a man of questionable character’s corpse is found at The Cottages, beaten to death with Madison’s own gardening tools, she and her partner, Fab, set out to prove that the man’s abused girlfriend did not kill him. Along the way, Madison finds herself behind bars twice, held hostage in a mansion, and running from flying bullets.

There is no shortage of action, suspense, comedy, or romance in this edge-of-your-seat story of two friends with a knack for getting into—and somehow out of—trouble. This time they must answer one question: Who is responsible for getting their Revenge in Paradise?

Revenge in Paradise, is the sixth novel in Deborah Brown's Paradise series, which can be also read as a stand alone book.

Available to buy from..... and Noble

"I loved the location, the story, and the people so I recommend this book for those who enjoy a good mystery that has a lot of fun as well."

"I've ready every book in her Paradise Keys --and can't wait for the next one to come out."

"So delightfully entertaining this is one story not to be missed!"

My review:

This is the 6th book in the Paradise series... and I've read all 6 now.  I keep thinking that eventually Deborah Brown's world revolving around Madison will get a little old... but each book keeps me reading.  I just can't say enough about how entertaining the characters are (both the main characters and all of the people around them).  I can't get enough of Madison and Fab: best friends and partners... they are constantly in the middle of chaos.

Once again the main mystery (of the dead man in the gardening shed) kept me guessing.  But, it was almost secondary to the rest of the crazy things that Madison found herself in the middle of.  I don't know how she keeps her head on straight.  Her cottages, a car wash, a bar, a trailer park... how many places can one girl handle???  (I can't even manage to get a book review done on time!!!)

I know I previously said that I would have a hard time if I were Madison and had to choose between Zach and Creole... but I've decided it's no contest.  I'm team Creole all the way.  The more time I read about Madison and Creole together (either as friends, or a couple... or with the family) the more I love him (and them together).  While Madison's relationship with Zach was exciting and all over the place... her relationship with Creole is almost comfortable, while still being hot.  Yep... team Creole all the way.

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.
