If you are looking for a book with romance & some mystery with lots of action then this book is for you. Starfish Island has mystery, romance, beautiful location. This is my kind of book!!! Nicole is Not afraid to stand up for herself. She doesn't back down from anyone. The romance thru this book makes you wonder who will be together at the end. The mystery kept me guessing until the end who was causing all the problems. When you think you know who it is there is another twist which I love in a mystery and especially to have romance thrown in for good measure. I think this was my first book by Deborah Brown and what a delight it was.

After a bad break-up, Nicole Alexander is ready for a change. When she inherits a house on Starfish Island from a grandmother she never knew, it seems like the perfect opportunity for starting over. But soon after moving in, Nicole starts getting messages warning her to leave. She is determined to get to the bottom of the hauntings, Nicole starts an investigation. When things get hot and heavy with one of the island’s most charismatic residents, Michael Edwards, made a promise to Nicole's grandmother that he will look after her. Her lawyer told her that Michael was after her property and that her grandmother ask him to marry her. Will Nicole discover the reason for the island’s hostility before it’s too late? Can she fall for a man she doesn’t exactly trust? She doesn't know who to believe or trust especially when her ex boyfriend shows up trying to win her back.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. If you like mystery and romance together especially mystery then this is the book for you most mysteries they have now are more scared than a mystery but I throughly enjoyed this book.

Within the first few pages, I was hooked! I can't imagine inheriting property from someone that I never knew but it sure would be fun! I'd want to immediately dive in to see all of the things that an ancestor of mine held onto, things they liked, the way they lived, etc. Of course, as with most of these situations, Nicole is met with so much opposition but this gal is crazy tough and doesn't let anyone keep her from anything. I would have instantly become a chicken and left when I received a threat but Nicole holds on and makes headway into making the place "hers".

I was hooked on the mystery behind everything more so than the romance but with that part playing in the story line, I became complete intrigued as to how it was going to end. In fact, I read it all within an afternoon/evening and when it was over, I know my mouth was hanging open! At one point, I was so engrossed in the story that when my son touched my shoulder to ask me a question (for the third time!), I nearly jumped out of my skin!

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

Starfish Island by Deborah Brown is a romantic mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end. Moving is stressful enough, but who can Nicole trust in this new place? Can she give her heart away or is she bound for total destruction? So many lies and half-truths weave throughout the story and keep you engaged.

Ms. Brown keeps the characters interesting and unique, while giving the reader a glimpse into the lies hidden in Starfish Island. Slowly unraveling the story and adding enough twists that you never quite know what is going to happen next.

A strong female lead and a handsome stranger most definitely make for interesting bedfellows. I can say that the steamy moments intermingled with spine-tingly moments keep you on edge.

There were moments when the plot dragged a bit for me, but overall was a great way to spend a quiet weekend. Suspense, romance, and lies surround the cast of characters and make for an intriguing read.

I'm a huge fan of the Paradise series written by this author, so I jumped at the chance to read her newest work. Unlike the comedic mysteries of the Paradise series, STARFISH ISLAND is a suspenseful mystery which is much more serious.

Nicole is an interesting main character. She is an artist, she is basically alone and adrift in life. She doesn't know who to trust or what to believe, and the author puts us right there with her from beginning to end.

Content warning: There are a few rather explicit sexual scenes---but you can always skip through those if that isn't your "cup of tea."

I certainly hope that Ms. Brown will be writing more novels like this one!

I received this book free for an honest review. I have read Brown's entire Paradise series, and have loved every one of them. I was excited to learn she was writing a romantic suspense.
I couldn't put it down! From the beginning, Brown hooked me. The characters were interesting and the story line kept me guessing what was happening next. Nicole and Michael were fun characters and never revealed too much about what was happening. The other supporting characters complimented the main story. There were a couple of times that I was a little confused by Nicole's change of mindset. She jumped emotions a little too quickly at times. I had a hard time putting it down because I "had" to know what was coming next.
This would make a great beach read. Finished it quick!
