About the Author

Angie Sandro was born at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri. Within six weeks, she began the first of eleven relocations throughout the United States, Spain, and Guam before the age of eighteen.

Friends were left behind. The only constants in her life were her family and the books she shipped wherever she went. Traveling the world inspired her imagination and allowed her to create her own imaginary friends. Visits to her father's family in Louisiana inspired this story.

Angie now lives in Northern California with her husband, two children, and an overweight Labrador.

The setting of Dark Paradise had my attention right from the start. Angie Sandro opens this book in such a way that you just cannot put it down. From the very first pages, I was swept up in the suspense of this story. Her adroitness at writing the characters without letting them fall prey to the stereotypes of the south also made me want to keep reading.

Mala is exactly what I want out of my heroines. She didn't take no for an answer, she had a backbone, and she didn't give in or give up. I have so much respect for Angie Sandro just for the way that she wrote Mala! It was so easy to picture these characters as people. Angie Sandro gave them all voices fitting to their circumstances. My one draw back was the relationship between Mala and Landry. I'm not exactly sure what it was, maybe the back and forth?, but I struggled with it at times.

Out of all the books I've read lately, this is one of those that you can immediately see it being optioned as a tv show or movie. It was a great story that you just got lost in. The paranormal elements of Dark Paradise never seemed too heavy. This is a book that crosses over many genres, but I don't feel like it was overly saturated. Everything fit cohesively into a brilliant story!

"Dark Paradise" By Angie Sandro

The first book in the Dark Paradise series.

Release date July 1st.

Mala LaCroix's life isn't ideal. Her Mother is the town hooker, alcoholic and rumored witch. The man she has been crushing on for years thinks of her as his annoying kid sister and oh yeah, she just had to pull a dead girl out of the bayou behind her house. To make matters worse the dead girl is now haunting her and forcing her to use powers she can't control, powers that she has denied the very existence of for years.

Landry Prince is in love with Mala. He watches her from a distance, never having the courage to talk to her let alone speak his true feelings. However when he discovers that Mala might have information on his sisters brutal murder he will stop at nothing to find out the truth, even if that means proving that Mala herself had something to do with it.

I can't express how much I loved this book.
Mystery, murder, love triangles.
Check, check and check.
Throw in some witch hoodoo and I'm completely hooked.

I loved Angie's writing style and her characters. The way she described the town and the people within it made me feel like I had been living there my whole life, walking along side Mala while the judgmental looks and un-approving glances were thrown her way.

I don't want to dive too deep into the story for fear of accidentally spoiling something so I will leave you with this.

Add "Dark Paradise" to your TBR list, pre-order it, wait in line at midnight to get it.
You will not be sorry.

Until next time,
Ginger

Intriguing characters set in a tangible setting that make me want to take a trip to Louisiana, except I'm just a little too scared to stay. Angie manages to give a dark feel to her story that recalls memories of watching Supernatural and loving the dark and gritty parts. She has a talent for turning phrases on their heads and making them fresh and totally unique to her characters. Several times I turned to my husband and read her lines out loud because I was in awe of her creativity.

When the story ended I wanted to immediately one-click the next book in the series. With her fresh writing style that was sexy and funny yet still sent chills down my spine and made me believe the room actually did get a little colder, I can't wait for what this writer has for me next.

This book was a definite page turner, it was a fast paced murder mystery and I couldn’t wait to read what was going to happen next. Mala LaCroix has spent her life trying to escape from her mom’s shadow. Her mom tells her she is the last in a long line of hoodo women. Mala has a hard time believing it. Mala tries her best to blend in but all that changes when she finds a dead body floating in the bayou behind her house. She’s haunted by visions of the dead girl, demanding justice and vengeance. Mala is forced to tap into powers she never knew she had.

Then their is Landry Prince who has always had a crush on Mala. She has no idea he does until they try to solve his sister’s murder. When Mala discovers his sister, murdered and marked in some sort of Satanic ritual he wonders if she could have done it. All the rumors about the LaCroix family put her in danger but as they try to find out why Laney is haunting them he starts to form his own bond to her a very physical one. As they move closer to each other and closer to the truth, Mala and Landry must risk everything-their families, their love, and even their lives. I loved Mala so much. She had so much more strength than she thought she did. And I found myself cheering her on when she was trying to get a point across. At first I had a love/hate relationship with Landry until his true colors began to shine. I think he is a wonderful person even though he is a little rough around the edges. This book left on a cliff hanger and I would read the sequel.
