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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

At 8% I was already rolling my eyes. At 53% I was reading merely to 'get it over with'. At 78% I confirmed its place on my 'Not the worst ever but close' list. This is a book I'm actually ashamed to let anyone know I read. The only reason I'm exposing my shame is due to all the 5stars and high praise which led me to waste money on 2 books- I muddled through book 1 also! The first book wasn't nearly as horrible (not good by any stretch either). But it was enough that I decided to check out the second to find out if the author grew her writing/characters in the second book, which is often the case. Several times I've found a fabulous series that I otherwise would've missed had I bailed after a tepid first.

Not this time. This time I want to bang my head against a wall. To explain how bad the protagonist/female lead is - after two books I had to go back to look up her name! I could not remember her name! Lol. THAT should tell you how horrible this is since she aggravated me enough her name should've stuck.

Then again, at 10% in I nick-named her Doormat, so that could explain my lapse.

In a nutshell; Awful juvenile cardboard characters with zero depth running around like idiots believing themselves to be bad a'ss The author obviously pulled out her 'Stephanie Plum Patten' & got busy putting her own stamp/changes on the tried & true. Personally, I'm not one of the Plum super-fans, however Plum & crew leap from the pages, are well fleshed out as are the locales, etc; you're not 'told' things, you're 'shown'. Not this book/author. No no no, you are clubbed over the head over & over about how bad-a'ss Madison is. How 'crazy' Madison is. How 'brave' Madison is. Brave? Stupid, yes. Brave? Lol.
