Deception in Paradise book review and $25 Amazon card GIVEAWAY

When I signed up for this book tour, I was offered the option of getting just this book, or having an ebook version of book 1, Crazy in Paradise sent to me as well.  I chose to get the first book, too, thinking at the time, "If I'm not into it after the first chapter or two, I'll just set it aside and read the second one for the review."

While we were on vacation last month, I needed to sit near the little girls while they fell asleep in a strange place.  I remembered the ebook on my iPad, and started reading.  Turns out, I loved Crazy in Paradise so much that I ended up finishing both books while we were there.

Faintly remeniscent of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels (which I love), these books were fast paced, funny, and engaging.  I was delighted to discover that there are a total of 5 of them right now!

Madison Westin is back!! The Florida Keys are hotter than ever.

With Madison's never-say-no style she's smarter and packing an attitude not to mention her Glock.

This time, trouble rolls into Tarpon Cove in the form of Madison's ex-husband, Jackson Devereaux, whom she hoped to never see again. His arrival brings unparalleled chaos and an uninvited corpse.

Teaming up with her hot friend, Fabiana, the two women go from chasing the usual cast of misfits and weirdos to hunting down a murderer. The action turns deadly serious when they stir up a nasty enemy as they try to stay one-step ahead in a game of cat and mouse that threatens their lives.

Deception in Paradise, a Florida Keys mystery, the second novel in Deborah Brown's Paradise series, can be read as a stand alone book.

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; 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.
