[Review] Ambushed in Paradise by Deborah Brown (Paradise Series Book 12)

#review Ambushed in Paradise by @debbrownbooks #bvbtours #giveaway

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!”

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.

My Review

Ms Brown damn near gave me a heart attack with the start of this book! In fact I threw it down (ok I didn’t as it was my phone) and almost refused to read it, (ok another lie) – after an opening line of “He’s dead.” you wouldn’t want to stop reading either!

Madison’s life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Creole is killed in the line of duty, he was killed on an undercover mission and when she goes to start making arrangements for his funeral she is told that he has already been cremated! I really felt for Madison, she lost the love of her life and didn’t even get to say goodbye to him properly, is it any wonder she slips into a depression. Fab and Didier try to give her space but they are worried about her, but it was her mother that I wanted to take a swig at – she felt that Madison would benefit from seeing a shrink and does so underhandedly by inviting Madison to dinner as well a shrink. Not cool, not cool at all. I felt like her family were trying to get her to come to terms with his death rather quickly instead of letting her come to terms with it in her own way.

Madison takes herself off to the Beach House to rest and be near him, only ghost from the past resurface in a way that will leave you shocked!

Ambushed in Paradise was a great addition to the series and it will tug on your emotions along side Madison.

As it is book 12 in the series you will have no problem reading this as a stand alone but trust me you will want to read all of Madison & Fab’s antics up to this point.

    I’ve never been to the Florida Keys, so I wouldn’t know if it’s paradise, but I’d love to find out!
