Book Review & Giveaway: Ambushed in Paradise by Deborah Brown

11 Jan

The Keys is a great place to hide a seashell bucket full of secrets.
Creole…shot…dead. Three words Madison Westin never thought she’d hear in the same sentence. Creole promised. He pinky swore on it.
But even through a blur of tears fed by prescription-strength margaritas, Madison can tell when things are shady. Sure, Creole was undercover, but she deserves more than sketchy non-answers, an urn of ashes, and a secret life crawling out of the woodwork.
Nothing’s adding up, nothing that remotely sounds like the Creole she knew and loved. Calling in every one of her IOU’s—only to find some of her most reliable information sources drying up—Madison sets out to dig up what really happened to Creole. She never thought the truth would wrap its arms around her and make her wonder if she’s chasing a ghost… or taking a vacation from sanity.
Ambushed in Paradise is book #12 in the action-packed Paradise series. Come along with Madison and Fab as they dig up the truth and share more than one hair raising adventure.

The Paradise series, are Florida Keys mysteries, “great as stand-alone reads, but they’re like chips…you won’t be able to devour just one!”

Available to buy from…..

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Since I’ve read most of the Paradise books and feel like these characters are friends, I didn’t bother to read the book description before I read Ambushed in Paradise. Talk about ambushed! What a way to start a book! I felt Madison’s heartbreak right along with her when she was told that Creole was dead. I kept saying, “He can’t be dead. He can’t be dead.” But then there was a funeral and his ashes were buried…

It amazes me how Deborah Brown can keep these stories so alive and refreshing. You would think that at some point they would get repetitive or boring but she keeps coming up with surprises (even if it is a death) to keep things interesting. Madison’s best friend, Fab, and Fab’s boyfriend are great friends and try to help her through her grief. Fab is still pretty crazy. And Madison’s family is always interesting.

I read this book in one sitting (“He can’t be dead. He can’t be dead.”). It’s just January and I’m sure this will be one of my favorite books of 2018. Ambushed in Paradise can be read as a stand alone but I wouldn’t recommend it. I would read at least book #11 before this one in order to understand the love that Madison loses at the beginning of the story.

 

“I love the characters, Brown does an amazing job of creating complex and interesting characters!”

“This was one of the author’s strongest books yet”

“I have enjoyed this entire series, but this book is a standout.”

About the Author

I’ve been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; poetry, sappy short stories (my best friend made me swear that I’d never show anyone until I changed the names), and a romance novel shoved under my bed.
I wanted to create books with a wide-range of unforgettable characters, with heat and romance, and lots of guns. It wouldn’t be complete without a slice of humor and charm.
I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.
