Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for author Deborah Brown and her Paradise series:

"Madison's back and ballsier than ever..."

"Fantastic series with real flair..."

"Sexy read..."

"Readers will be entertained from the first paragraph."

About the Author

Deception in Paradise, a Florida Keys mystery, is the second novel in Deborah Brown's Paradise series.

"This book's like cotton candy - a sweet airy confection that's a little taboo, but you've got to have it anyways."

Life is all about your shoes...

Crazy. Ice cream loving. Redhead. 5'2", long legs. As an avid exerciser, I get to the gym every five years or so. I hate being tricked by that stinking raisin in the oatmeal cookie when my heart was set on chocolate. And it's totally acceptable for me to be mildly annoying when it makes me laugh. South Florida is my home, with my ungrateful rescue animals, where Mother Nature takes out her bad attitude in the form of hurricanes.

More About the Author

The Paradise series, are Florida Keys mysteries, "great as stand-alone reads, but they're like chips...you won't be able to devour just one!"

I've been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; poetry, sappy short stories (my best friend made me swear that I'd never show anyone until I changed the names), and a romance novel shoved under my bed.

I wanted to create books with a wide-range of unforgettable characters, with heat and romance, and lots of guns. It wouldn't be complete without a slice of humor and charm.

I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

I am loving this series. The characters make you want to join in the fun. They have you cheering for them and wanting to help kick some butts...way to go ladies. The only down side is now I have to wait till Ms Brown writes the next one. This is a fun,quick read for a day around the pool or a rainy day, once you pick it up you can't pick it down.

I read the first book and automatically went on to this one, it didn't deliver like Crazy in Paradise. Madison became a bumbling idiot in this book. She was not a character to fall in love with, it was like the author forgot Zach was part of her life until CHAPTER 6!!! Seriously? CHAPTER 6?? 14% into the book are we reminded that Zach existed in her life. Jax's relationship with Madison made little to no sense.... and Zach was all but forgotten and when he did show up it was nothing like before. Really disappointing book....I wanted to read #3 but I have a feeling it might be worst that this one. The steaminess between her and zack was left in Crazy in Paradise, so was her wittiness and fun personality. She is no longer a character to love, she's that idiot you yell at in the movies.

This book was cute. It was fun. But very obviously 'Stephanie Plum'-ish. Oddball characters abound, and everyone worries about the headstrong main character getting herself into trouble or hurt. And she does, but is always able to avoid seroius injury by the skin of her teeth, or gets rescued by a mysterious, handsome hunk who wants to make out with her. I received this book for free in exchange for a review and I enjoyed reading it.

As soon as I finished reading Crazy in Paradise, I had to buy Deception in Paradise! I couldn't stop reading! I was always wondering what they were going to get into next! The description of the ocean and resounding areas made me want to see the ocean very badly. One can almost smell the salty air. I loved these 2 books and highly recommend them.

This is the second book of the series, following "Crazy in Paradise". Madison Westin inherits her Aunt Elizabeth's home and cottage motel in Tarpon Cove, in the Florida Keys. Madison's ex-husband, Jax shows up and starts causing problems for Madison and her family. Jax has a criminal history and becomes involved with a murder. Madison wants to get rid of Jax but is stuck defending him in order to legally keep her home. Aunt Elizabeth's devious attorney from the first book gets involved and causes more legal problems for Madison. Madison's friendship with Fabiana (my favorite character) develops and they soon are in business together. Madison's mom finds a boyfriend and Madison is not pleased. All of the fun characters from the first book return and of course murder and mystery are the main plot. But there is so much fun and crazy in this book, that I could not put it down.

Madison's mom is really coming into her own in this book, which was fun to read. I enjoyed all the drama at the motel but will say that the PI work with Fabiana is my favorite. At first, I was not happy with Madison trying to help Jax as he was a creep. But I think it is part of Madison's character to help someone that she once cared for and I eventually accepted it. It did help create a great plot and get Madison into trouble, so I loved the wild ride.

I immediately downloaded, "Trouble in Paradise" after finishing this book. I don't want this to end.

The first book in the series was a little far-fetched, but this book was ridiculously unbelievable. I did finish it, but kept thinking to myself how unrealistic it was, even for fiction.

Enjoyable characters and easy story line. Have read all in this series so far. Very light, easy read. Don't look for deep plots, just take it to the beach or to the sofa.

Deception in Paradise

Madison Weston is back in action and this time she's more balsy than ever.

Returning home after a less than stellar day Madison walks in to an unwelcome sight, her ex-husband Jax is sitting on her couch. Jax was bad news when they divorced and it seems he hasn't changed and this time he's dragged her headlong into his newest mess.

When the body of Pavel Klaus is found washed up on shore with a bullet wound in what was left of his head, Madison's ex-husband Pax is arrested for the murder. Seems Pavel was last seen with Pax and a group of ne'r-do-well friends on a drunken joyride in the boat he "borrowed" from Madison. As if Madison didn't already have enough going on in her life, she now has to prove her ex isn't guilty of murder.

With the help of her friend and cohort Fab, and much to the chagrin of on again-off again boyfriend Zach, Madison enlists help from her contacts around Tarpon Grove to find the real killer and clear Pax's name. Ever the clumsy and fly by the seat of her pants kind of woman, Madison finds herself in hairy situations that have "knights in shining armor" clamoring to protect her from herself and the thugs whose toes she has stepped on and looking for revenge.

Deborah Brown continues to entertain her readers with her off the wall cast of characters, many of whom are carried over from her first book "Crazy in Paradise". With antics that will have you laughing and moments that make you want to strangle some of the characters, readers will be entertained from the first paragraph.

My rating? Five stars all the way. The lady knows how to write a mystery.
