Murder in Paradise & a Giveaway!

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.

My Review

Madison Westin is at it again! But of course, so is her best friend Fab. I really loved how we got to learn more about her & her sordid past. Of course it had to be because of a couple of murders, but that's to be expected now whenever Madison is involved. 

Throughout the murder investigation though, I was more enthralled by the good cop, bad cop acts of both Zach & Creole. They both seemed to have their moments that made you want to root for them & I have to admit that I was Team Zach from the beginning. But after an ending like that, Team Creole all the way! 

 Oh & that murder that Fab found herself smack dab in the middle of... Yep, I didn't see that one coming at all! Which of course made me go back & read the entire thing again to see if I just missed it completely, or if it was just written that good. It was just written that good!

Available to buy from.....

""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."

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.
