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.

My Review

This is my second Deborah Brown / Paradise Series novel and I enjoyed it as much as the first. Brown is truly the queen of continuity because the character portrayal and attention to detail were seamless. All the old favourites are there, Brick, Spoon and Madison’s formidable, cigar-smoking mother.

This time, Madison and Fabiana are trying to save someone very close to them from ending up in the slammer.  There have been grisly murders and a very shady collection of property developers are at work.  As usual, there is a series of extra cases that the two girls solve in their roles as PIs, each one of them being entertaining and different.  You never know what the girls are going to take on next.

I’m not going to spoil the ending for you but the novel is fast-paced, highly entertaining and works as a stand-alone story.  It’s fun, escapist stuff and the two female protagonists are street smart, entertaining and ballsy.

Highly recommended.
