Our Book Review
The second installment of Madison Westin adventures in Florida Keys.  Just when she is trying to rebuild her life, her past catches up with her when her ex husband turns up demanding his share of Madison inheritance.  While staying there he organises a party and one of the guests ends up dead leading Madison and her fiends into a murder mystery investigation and personal conflict with her new love.

The story is a real page turner with twists and turns, easy to follow and keeps the reader engrossed with the excellent red herrings she throws in.

Even though this is the second book in the series it can be read without reading the first one a totally separate issue and self contained narrative.

The author has created the beginnings of an excellent series who could challenge M C Beaton and the Agatha Raisin series. Praise for a new innovative character who finds herself in a lot of pickles and has to bend / stoop below the law in order to survive.

An excellent novel which not only covers the intrigue and investigation side of the mystery but really touches on the human nature and emotions which add spice to the story.

Novel number three is waiting and really looking forward to it.
Our Rating
About the Author
The Paradise series, are Florida Keys mysteries, "great as stand-alone reads, but they're like won't be able to devour just one!"

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.
