Book Review: Overdose in Paradise by Deborah Brown

A woman’s been found dead in Dr. A’s beach house, facedown in enough cocaine to put him away for life. It’s going to take more than trading a couple of favors to help the doctor, who’s always been there for Madison, no questions asked, no blood left behind. 

Hard as Madison and Fab have tried to keep their promise to stop playing sneak-around-chick, prying up the evidence that could set their friend free requires a skillset from their shady past. When they open up this set of Pandora’s boxes, it’s too late to mind their own business. 

Plus being on the radar of a big-time drug dealer, shoots up the street value on their lives a million-fold. They could be in a felonious hot mess.Nice things about living in Tarpon Cove?
Favors are traded like cryptocurrency. 

If anybody asks, nobody saw anything. And even the worst day can end with a pitcher of margaritas–glass optional.



My Review

I chose to review this book after requesting a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I’ve read most of the books in this series and I’ve fallen in love with the characters. They’ve become like good friends, and I’m always looking forward to their next story or adventure. Madison and Fab are best friends and although they’ve calmed down over the years, they’re still good private investigators. They are just trying to stay away from the more dangerous cases. Somehow, though, that doesn’t always work out.

Dr. A needs a good lawyer after his girlfriend is found dead of an overdose in his house. He’s accused of supplying her with the drugs that killed her. Madison promises to find him a lawyer but of course she and Fab can’t leave it there. Even though Creole and Didier (boyfriend and husband, respectively) keep reminding them that it’s not their case and they’ve done all that they promised, they continue to work the case, find leads that may exonerate the good Dr. A, and find themselves in danger once again.

As with all of the Paradise books, Overdose in Paradise was a quick and enjoyable read. Deborah Brown has a good sense of humor and you never know what’s going to happen, especially at Madison’s property The Cottages. I especially liked the ending, and I’m looking forward to Madison and Fab’s next adventure.

Although this series is best read in order, all of the books stand alone. I definitely recommend them if you like independent women who are loyal and passionate about family, life and love. 



About the Author

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!”

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.
