Kidnapped in Paradise & a Giveaway!


In the Florida Keys, trouble is brewing along with the coffee. Friends Madison Westin and Fabiana Merceau search for the mastermind behind gruesome warnings showing up on their doorstep. Fab’s infamous new partner and Madison’s reappearing ex-husband complicate matters in this sexy and humorous action-adventure, the seventh installment of the Paradise series.

Can they slip the bonds of protective custody and solve the mystery before they are Kidnapped in Paradise?

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





 My Review

I've read every book in the Paradise series thus far, but this one had me on the edge of my seat! Literally, on the edge of my seat, talking to the characters like they could hear me and gasping along the way.

Let me tell you that the mess that Madison & Fab manage to get themselves in this time, is definitely a doozy. Something so complicated that it wreaks havoc on everyone's lives. Including Madison & Creole's relationship! (Enter cursing now.) 

I'm really not a romance reader at all, but I have been rooting for Madison & Creole every step of the way. And honestly, that's what keeps me coming back to the Paradise series. Of course all of the murders & whodunits get their fair share of credit too (& decapitations?!) But really, I want to see if wedding bells are in the future! Hint, hint... 



Available to buy from.....

"I loved it. Couldn't stop reading; real page turner! Would highly recommend. Can't wait for the next book in the series!" 

"Deborah Brown has done it again. The whole crew of South Florida lunatics are flying in every direction in this, the seventh book of the Paradise series." 

"I love the characters with their attitudes and personalities not always agreeing it is a great read!I hope there is more to come can't wait to see what these two cook up next! Definitely two thumbs up Deborah Brown!"

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.

BOOKER: Blood Ring by John Mefford & a Giveaway!


New Release....

Her dimpled smile and alluring gaze wouldn’t work this time. Neither would her charm, curves, and effervescent youth--qualities that had always kept her moving in all the right circles. The high life.

Not this time. This time was terrifyingly different.

Shackled by her own regrets and the hell delivered by her captors, she struggles to find a sliver of hope where there is none. Time ticks . . .

Having made a name for himself in just a few short months as a Dallas PI, Booker T. Adams yanks the brake on everything once the sister of his business partner and friend, Alisa Lopes, goes missing.

Meanwhile, a family grieves for the loss of their child, another teen who thought she could have it all. Hired to find her killer, Booker treads through a layer of slime, trying to uncover who could be preying on a generation blinded by the hyper-active pursuit of fame and fortune—someone who enjoys it far too much.

With time running out before another shining star turns up in a body bag, Booker chases an invisible executor, grasping at any shred of evidence to find the young beauty.

For Alisa. For the grieving family. For every girl plucked off the street never to be heard from again. It has to stop. Today. In Dallas. Booker will either succeed or die trying. And so will countless others.


My Review

NEVER before have I been so drawn into a book by the first sentence. The very first sentence! And let me tell you, John Mefford doesn't let the suspense die down at all. 

Just like the other books in the BOOKER series, there's plenty of greed, murder & mayhem to go around. And of course Booker always seems to put the pieces together just in time.Obviously that's what pulls me in time & time again, but this plot really drew me in! And the ending - shut the front door!!! 

BOOKER: Blood Ring can definitely be read as a stand alone book, but I would highly suggest reading the others in the series just because they're that good!

Booker: Streets of Mayhem (Booker #1)
On a cool October afternoon, the majestic blue sky above Dallas is polluted with swells of gray smoke, carrying shattered memories of fifteen people, mostly children, who've just been killed by an explosion on a bus.

A white supremacist group claims responsibility, opening old wounds, turning neighbor against neighbor--fracturing the community. A Southeast Dallas native, Booker T. Adams couldn't be more invested in the city…in the people he'd served for the last seven years as a beat cop for the Dallas Police Department. Without warning, it becomes personal for Booker on so many levels. And as panic grips the city, he must decide how much he's willing to sacrifice to end the chaos.

With his career called into question and his family in the crosshairs of one terrorist act after another, Booker invests every fiber of his being to protect a broken community, and to stop the brutal, senseless slayings.

If he fails, terrorism will reign in the city of Dallas.

Booker: Tap That (Booker #2)
A performance for the ages.

Courtney Johnson brings the house down in the heart of the vibrant Dallas Arts District. Later, shrills pierce the hallways of Wyle Theater when Courtney, a budding Broadway musical star, is found dead, a single bullet to the head.

Driven to find the killer before panic tears apart the arts community and all those who support it, private investigator Booker T. Adams discovers evidence of a professional hit, then uncovers a lovers ' triangle that takes him all the way to the mean streets of Boston.

And then it happens again. Another performer killed, someone Booker had met. Rocked by the shocking murders, performers and patrons alike fear that a serial killer is on the loose, and no one knows when and or where another dead body will show up.

But professional obligations quickly morph into personal vendettas. Running against an unforgiving clock, Booker is forced to solicit the help of a crime boss, The Shark.

With his life threatened at almost every turn, and his heart being put through a meat grinder, Booker taps into every resource at his disposal to stop more than just a killer.

But at what price?

Full of unforgettable characters, bone-chilling suspense and stunning thrills, BOOKER - Tap That is a wild ride that will test even the most fervent reader's quest for a luminous reading experience.

Booker: Hate City (Booker #3)
After a life filled with destruction of others and himself, and his body ravaged by disease, there's only one thing left for Javier Calero to do. Leave a legacy that will finally bring meaning to his life—and to the death of an American president more than fifty years ago.

The CEO of a green energy company is murdered behind his million-dollar estate, his neck nearly severed in two. Recruited to aid the widow and find a savage killer, Booker finds himself in the middle of a family train wreck.

Days later, thrust into the crossfire of a deadly sniper, Booker eludes sure death with the uncanny arrival of a young woman who only wants to save her father from harm. But she can't do it without Booker's help.

Joining forces with a Latin spitfire, Booker and his new sidekick, Maggie, embark on a twenty-four-hour quest to hunt down a killer determined to make an indelible mark on history—just like the one that struck down John F. Kennedy a half-century earlier, which launched a cascade of assassination investigations and theories.

My Review

John Mefford has done it again! Although this time, the plot spans through decades with missing JFK memorabilia - an event that has always intrigued me. 

I love how Booker seems to almost flawlessly navigate through multiple murders, even though they never seem to quite match up. Of course Booker always connects the dots even though I never do (which is why I can never seem to put these books down once I start them). Only this time, the addition of Maggie Calero really seemed to up the story line & I hope she sticks around for the next book in the series. 

BOOKER: Hate City can definitely be read as a stand alone book, but I would highly suggest reading the others in the series just because they're that good!

Revenge in Paradise & a GIveaway!


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?

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


My Review

I've read every book in this series thus far, so of course I was eager to pick up where all of the characters had left off. Especially Madison & Creole!

I'll be honest, by the title alone, I was a little nervous as to what kind revenge was going to take place. Little did I know that the whole story was going to be twists & turns from one scenario of revenge to another. But my little heart was content that Madison & Creole made it through the story unscathed as a couple. Well, there was that one incident at Jake's...but that's another story so to speak. 

Revenge in Paradise could definitely be read as a stand alone book, but is far better after reading the others in the series because you learn so much about the characters & their backgrounds. Either way, I definitely recommend this to anyone who loves a fast paced crime novel with a twist of romance, a little grit & a bevy of "colorful" characters.

 

Available to buy from.....

"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

Booker is at it again! Tap That is the second book in the BOOKER series & the action picks up right where the first in the series, Streets of Mayhem, left off.

Poor Booker seems to find himself in murder after murder yet again, only this time, it gets personal. All while still tying up lose ends from the first book of the series. And then there's his mom! Needless to say the action is fast paced & constantly keeping you guessing. I wish I could say that I was a step ahead while reading this, but I seemed to always be a step behind. Which of course had me reading for more!

Although Tap That can be read alone, I highly suggest reading the first of the series to be kept in the loop a bit more. Either way, if fast paced drama/murder mystery is your genre, you're going to love this easy read.

Greed in Paradise & a Giveaway!


Tears will fall, hearts will pound, and bullets will fly in Greed in Paradise...

Just when Madison and Fab think it's safe to dip their sexy bodies into the cool tropical waters of paradise, they get the shock of their lives when a friend and business partner turns up dead and they discover they've been written into his will. But nothing is what it seems, as the women find out.

There are deadly secrets brewing beneath the surface of Tarpon Cove. Come along on a steamy, thrilling adventure as the two try to find out why their friend suddenly died--seemingly, without cause.

The fifth book in the series finds our sleuths waist deep in sexual tension, flinging barbs, and dodging bullets.

Deborah Brown's Paradise series is packed with Action, Romance, Intrigue, Mystery and Suspense. Oh... did I forget to mention the humor makes for a fast and enjoyable read? These books will be difficult to put down!

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

My Review

Madison & Fab have definitely done it again! Although to their credit, they never intended to get themselves into a predicament this time around.
 
I really loved how the characters intertwined in this installment. There were some new ones with new stories to tell, but there were also some from earlier installments that came back which I honestly wasn't expecting. I also wasn't expecting Zach to be involved in the storyline at all, but in the end I was beyond thrilled that Madison & Creole finally hooked up.

Greed in Paradise is by far the best of the Paradise series so far. It seemed like just about every page was a cliffhanger of some sorts that kept me reading for more. And as usual, I can't wait for the next book of the series!

Available to buy from.....

"If you have a broken heart and want to eat a bag of Kit-Kats while wishing for someone else's life, then you need this book." 

"Well written, a wide-range of unforgettable characters, heat and sex, then add a slice of humor that makes the romp an even cheekier ride." 

"If you're lying by a pool somewhere in the Florida Keys...you'll want this book to take your mind off the mosquitoes."
