Book Description

Molly Parker is a DWAG – a darts wife and girlfriend. Or rather, she’s an ex-DWAG after divorcing Paul “Bad Lad” Parker, a professional darts player and the self-pronounced Geordie pantomime villain of the sport, after catching him aiming more than his arrows in the direction of more than a few very willing glamour models.
So, leaving her life – and her ex-husband - behind in their native North East of England, she moves to the Canarian island of Tenerife with her best friend Fran, putting the past behind her, determined to start a whole new life abroad.
Within months of arriving on the island she finds herself engaged to her Spanish boyfriend Antonio – a handsome Canarian bar owner - and with their whirlwind wedding just weeks away she’s the happiest she’s been in a long time with a great job at a Timeshare complex, fantastic friends, and a lovely little home in a country she’s fallen completely in love with.
But what Molly didn’t bank on was her ex-husband turning up out of the blue declaring his undying love for her and begging her to come back to him - and not just because his darts were suffering! His unannounced arrival turns Molly’s new and seemingly perfect life upside down as she suddenly has to face up to feelings she’d thought were long gone, and make decisions she never thought she’d have to make as her whole world is thrown into total confusion. Does she stay in Tenerife and marry her wonderful, romantic, drop-dead-gorgeous Spanish fiancé? Or does she give the man she’d once loved but who’d treated her so badly another chance? Days in the sun or darts – it’s the choice she has to make. Throw in a Bolton-born lounge singer and a Take That tribute act, a famous TV actor with a reputation as a shameless flirt, and a major darts tournament that throws up more than it’s fair share of surprises, and all of a sudden Molly Parker’s life really is ‘Too Much Trouble in Paradise’ – a romantic comedy; a story of new beginnings, second chances, sun, sea - and darts!

Michelle Betham is also the author of the epic, two-decade-spanning Hollywood romance 'No Matter What' and the follow-up 'Illusions of Love', the edgy and sexy rock 'n' roll romance 'See You At The Show', the romantic comedy 'Bon Voyage', sexy soccer romances 'Striker' and 'Extra Time' and a short Christmas novella 'The First Christmas Without You', her first book published through Harper Impulse.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical HEA November 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't review many books and my past reviews have been exclusively positive. That said, I really did not like this book. I wanted to like it but this is not a feel-good, HEA type of book. ***Spoiler alert*** Cheating is not acceptable and cheating multiple times is even worse. I believe people can change, but Paul's having sex with many different groupies was not even properly addressed. He apologized but there was no explanation, reasoning, extenuating circumstance, nothing. To make matters worse, Antonio is the definition of "McDreamy". Although l sympathize with her, the female lead is weak and just plain stupid for taking Paul back. You can't help who you love, but you can refuse to be married to a serial cheater. Have some self-respect. I would have been happier with her ending up alone rather than with Paul. The writing itself was decent, but the overall book just left me with a sick feeling in my stomach. I am a huge fan of Susan Mallery, Carly Phillips, Nora Roberts, Rachel Gibson, Roxanne St Claire, etc. and Too Much Trouble in Paradise is just not that kind of book.

Molly Parker used to be a DWAG (Darts wife and girlfriend). After finding out that her husband, famous pro dart player Paul "Bad Lad" Parker is also a naughty lad behind her back, she decides to divorce him. She needs a new life, somewhere far, far away from the painful memories and her unfaithful husband. So, she leaves England and moves to Tenerife with her best friend Fran.

For a while, things just couldn't be more perfect! She's at this beautiful, exotic place, starting a fabulous new life, finding a job she loves... oh, and not to forget she's soon-to-be-married AGAIN, but this time to an absolutely hot and charming Spanish guy Antonio.
Well, few of her friends seem a bit surprised she's getting married so soon after her divorce, but you just can't stop love, right? She does love Antonio, does she? Or maybe deep down inside she's just trying to get her "revenge"?

You might think Molly is one lucky lady and that finally she found her Paradise on Earth. I thought so too, but then trouble walks into Paradise, her ex-husband Paul shows up out of the blue, saying he still loves her and wants her back!
Decisions, decisions, decisions... Who will she choose to be with at the end?

Too much Trouble in Paradise is a lovely chick lit book and I had lots of fun reading it. Molly is sweet and loveable character, though at times absolutely torn and confused, but then again, who wouldn't feel this way if they were in her shoes. I admire the fact she had the courage to start a new life and have her smile back so soon after the divorce. I loved her energy, optimism and big heart. As for the two men in this story... oh they will really get you crazy. I admit, I didn't like Paul at the beginning.

4.0 out of 5 stars A perfect beach read! June 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I got this eBook when it was available as a free download from Amazon.

From the outset the descriptions of Tenerife made me feel warm which was perfect seeing as it was a cold, rainy day outside my window.

Molly and Fran moved to Tenerife for a fresh start, they made some lovely new friends and seemed to enjoy their new lives. Molly was even engaged to a gorgeous Spanish man who treated her like a princess but for some reason she couldn't get her cheating ex-husband out of her mind. When he arrived in Tenerife it threatened everything she had built for herself since she left him and I was yelling at my Kindle wanting her to be strong and tell him where to go!

I found myself getting annoyed with Molly when she was going back and forth trying to make her mind up - it irritated me that she would treat Antonio (her Spanish fiancé) in that way because I liked him, he was much more understanding than he should have been. Clearly I disliked Paul (her ex-husband) although there were a few times when he did something that made me warm to him a bit.

Darts is really not my thing but I actually found it all completely fascinating to read about, my husband often watches darts on TV and this gave me a behind the scenes insight which I enjoyed. It was the same with the timeshares - I found myself really intrigued by it all!

This book was like reading a soap, there were so many ups and downs, some that were predictable and some that really weren't. I just had to keep reading to find out what would happen next and which way Molly would decide to go.

If I'm honest I would have preferred a different ending, even though it was quite romantic I had just hoped for something else.

This is a sunny, enjoyable read, perfect for the beach!

It was ok as a short "escape" to a sunny island. The plot and characters were predictable. Overall I enjoyed this as a light break away from work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cracking, fun read! October 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading and loving Michelle Betham's first novel, "No Matter What", I was tempted to try her second offering and I'm happy to report it's another winner! Different in style to her first book, this laugh a minute, lighthearted, fun tale is perfect summer holiday reading and will leave you wanting to board a plane and head for Tenerife with the girls asap! Once again there is plenty of escapism from the routine of daily life but there are also just enough touches of reality to make it work so well. Thoroughly enjoyable!
