Review: Hurricane In Paradise by Deborah Brown

Set against the steamy backdrop of Tarpon Cove's sun-kissed, tropical waters, sexy sleuths and best friends Madison and Fab are at it again dealing with the occasional dead body. Hidden just below the surface of the small town lies an underworld, one steeped in deceit, corruption, and deadly secrets. It's only a matter of time before Madison and Fab find themselves on a collision course with the police, who consider them likely suspects in a murder.

Ride along on their adventures when the duo realizes that a family member is missing and pull themselves away from all jobs to track him down. Theories: walked away, freak accident, kidnapped? If so, then why no ransom demand?

Hurricane in Paradise is book ten in the thrilling and humorous provocative Paradise series, which finds the two waist-deep in mystery and romance. It is a smart, adventurous read that delivers heart-thumping, non-stop action. Join Madison and Fab as they solve the most twisted of cases, through unconventional ¬– and highly entertaining – measures… sometimes in flip-flops.

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

My Review

Deborah Brown is back with Book 10 in the Paradise Series with a Hurricane, and the metaphoric title is apt. The action is fast paced and jolting, but there is always fun and humor with the Florida Keys clan.

Whether you are a fan of the series or a new reader, this is a great humorous mystery, which is one of my favorite kinds. Madison Westin and her partner in crime-solving, Fab Merceau are in for a tumultuous adventure full of danger, and who knows where the wind will blow them; literally. After a hurricane forces evacuation, Madison returns to the house from which her boyfriend had to drag her out of to safety to find squatters – with squatter’s rights! She has to take them to court to get her property back. In the midst of all of that, the main squatter is found dead behind one of her rental properties, and her #1 suspect.  

The Paradise series is full of wonderfully rounded characters, and Madison’s lawyer grandmother who shows up for a visit in the midst of this newest mysterious debacle does not disappoint! Of course, her mom and mom’s beau, Jimmy Spoon (yes the name is befitting), plus both detectives steamy dreamy boyfriends are on deck for this caper, and race, to clear Madison’s name.

Brown’s writing is fast paced, and delivers well. I’m always envisioning the action between Fab and Madison and anticipating the next move, delighted by their skill and wit. Unexpected twists and surprise characters keep me on edge and wanting more. Each new edition to the series is a plum.

"Deborah Brown's Florida Keys mystery series is highly addictive! The characters are quirky & amusing. The dialogue is snappy. The plot highly entertaining & thrilling. All the oddball cast of characters are back as well as Mad's & Fab's deliciously hunky loves, Creole & Didier." 

"Madison and Fab are so much fun to read about along with their better halves. This time there's murder (of course), a missing family member and a crazy grandma! You'll love this book so much!"

"Once again Deborah Brown has written a wonderful humerous highly entertaining book."

About the Author
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 with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.
