Welcome to Tarpon Cove.

Dying in the Middle of Summer is Sweaty Business…

If you ever put yourself in trouble by picking up someone else’s past, you have to meet Madison Westin, an honorary Trouble Queen.

Madison is a quirky motel owner, who recently inherited her aunt’s beachfront motel in the Florida Keys. But that is NOT all she inherited, as the motel houses a slew of colorful tenant’s – drunks, ex-cons, fugitives, and whatever bad guy you can think of.

How to solve this mess…? That is really not that difficult if you are Madison Westin.

Step 1: Take back control of YOUR motel
Step 2: Learn the ins and outs of blackmail, murder, and drugs
Step 3: If all fails, hope for the best…

Deborah Brown’s Crazy in Paradise is packed with Action, Romance, Intrigue, Mystery and Suspense. Oh… did I forget to mention the humor makes for a fast and enjoyable read? This book will be difficult to put down!

GIVVER GO…… but ONLY if you want to be Crazy in Paradise!


I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

Crazy in Paradise has a little bit of everything: drama, romance, humor, suspense, and more. It’s an easy and fun (mostly) read and the title is perfect.

Madison Westin, the main character, is independent, stubborn, and a little nutty. When she inherits her aunt’s house and beach side cottages, she meets a lot of colorful characters. Some of them become good friends or more and some become problems in one way or another.

Crazy in Paradise is nonstop action until the end. The ending was anticlimactic and I thought it should have ended sooner. Overall, though, I enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who enjoys women’s fiction.

Buy the book from…..  Amazon Barnes and Noble

About the Author

My debut novel Crazy in Paradise, a Florida Keys mystery, is full of fun and surprises, a ‘laugh out loud, roller coaster ride’.

I’ve been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; writing poetry, short stories, a romance novel secretly stashed under the bed and sappy love letters. Fiction should be fun. I wanted to create the perfect beach book, to make the reader laugh, cry and cheer… and then run out and tell their friends about it.

My love of reading began when I was seven, the day I opened the cover of my first Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Mrs. P gave lessons to other children in how to behave and to me I learned to love the written word. I live in South Florida, with my ungrateful animals, where Mother Nature takes out her bad attitude in the form of hurricanes.
