Disclosure: Leels Loves Books received a free ebook copy of this book in exchange for my review.
Meet the crime-solving duo of the Florida Keys: Madison who has all the charm of the girl next door, not to mention a deadly aim and Fab, her best friend, a femme fatale private investigator with a taste for danger and stilettos.
When their neighbor is found dead, the headlines read, “It doesn’t pay to be a lottery winner.” It gets you nothing but an endless line of crazies at your door, greedy relatives and acquaintances. Sleuths Madison and Fab don’t have time to be concerned about the latest murder; they have problems of their own trying to figure out why their house has suddenly become the focus of several attempted break-ins. The duo are off on more adventures — what could go wrong chauffeuring a limousine full of college girls? Or chasing after a custom Ferrari? Along the way, there’s a break-up, a wedding, and the usual run-ins with the law.
If you like sassy, exciting crime novels, then you’ll love Lottery in Paradise, the eleventh book in the scorching Paradise series about two seductive ladies who use unconventional and highly entertaining measures to maintain the peace in the steamy and twisted paradise of Tarpon Cove.
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!”
“Another FABULOUS book by one of my favorite authors. I love how there are always several different stories going on. I loved the ending…”
“Another great story in the Paradise series! My love for these quirky characters grows with every book! Hope they never end!”
“An excellent story that is jammed packed with fun, happiness, anger, & a few stupid decisions. She captures the reader’s attention & keeps it from beginning to end. This is another winner in the Paradise series!”

Loved!! Loved loved loved!! I have always loved Fab and Madison and their adventures!
This one had some thick tension with Fab from the start that got worse and slowly got better.
I have had my fair share of issues with Fab before but this time, I about thought we were calling it quits. Fortunately, the normal Fab returned before the end of the book so we didn’t have to break up.
This one definitely had a close brush to death – I think closer than the girls have ever come before.
While the girls may be reconsidering the direction of their lives, I am NOT ready to give them up and certainly hope there is more to come.
I don’t know that I can live with Fab, Madison, Spoon, Madeline, Didier, Creole, Brad and Liam. (Besides Brads hopefully budding romance!) They’re the family I wish I had!
Fab hit the steering wheel with a closed fist. “I’m going to run that jerk off the road.”
“No. You. Are. Not. And you’re not going to shoot out his tires either.” Though there was a zero chance of that happening. As talented as the hot, sexy woman was, she couldn’t steer and shoot at the same time. “We’ll act like normal people and call the police.” Normal, I laughed to myself. I hadn’t heard myself described that way in a long time. Mostly, I heard “weird” bandied about. An over-exaggeration – I’m familiar with weird, and that’s not me.
“You better come up with something better than that.” Fab pulled up alongside the truck on the driver’s side.
I powered the window down and hung my head out, my hand in mid-air, ready to flag the man down, even though I knew that chances were slim that he’d pull over. Pulling my head back in the window, I said, “Change of plans.” I pushed my red hair back into place, smoothing it down, certain it was a wind-whipped mess. “The fancy tow truck is one of Brick’s.”
Brick and I had a tenuous relationship; it was hard to trust him when I knew he never put Fab’s safety first, or mine either. He opposed our relationship, knowing that several times I had convinced my daring friend to calm down and rethink her plan. As backup to Super PI Fab, there were few jobs that didn’t include flying bullets and running for our lives. I was happy for the respite. So were our boyfriends,who’d had a face-to-face with Brick, laying down the rules: no more withholding details, and if it came out after the fact that he knew there was a high chance of danger, it would be the last mistake he would make. My boyfriend followed that up with a right cross to Brick’s eye.
Fab made an outraged sound. “I don’t believe you.”

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.
