Ambushed in Paradise by Deborah Brown {Book Review}

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

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!”

Available to buy from…..   Paperback 

“I love the characters, Brown does an amazing job of creating complex and interesting characters!”

“This was one of the author’s strongest books yet”

“I have enjoyed this entire series, but this book is a standout.”

Book Excerpt

Leels Loves Books Book Reviews

I have followed Madison since she first arrived in the Florida Keys. I have been through her relationship with Zack, their breakup; her friendship with Fab; tons of fun; lots of adventure; a crazy mother; physical and emotional pain; love; and now heartbreak.

I cannot imagine losing the love of my life and then to not have the support of family!? I wouldn’t survive and I have no clue how Madison managed to pull herself (drag herself may be more appropriate) through each day.

Madelyn, Spoon, Brad and Phil are definitely on my ‘do not like’ list and Fab has earned her spot back into my ‘like’ list. I can’t even begin to wrap my head around the actions of Madelyn, Spoon, and Brad (I am pretty sure Brad has lost his mind in its entirety and foresee massive trouble with Brad – more trouble than he encountered with his psycho ex-girlfriend. And at this point, I can’t help but say he deserves it and as much as I hope Madison doesn’t bail him out; she will because she always does for those she cares about.)

Even with Madison’s loss, there is no missing action, adventure, and laughs in Ambushed in Paradise. In fact, I am venturing to guess that this installment would top the action and adventure in previous installments!

Also available in the Paradise Series





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.
