Katie Macalister, who does nothing but write 24/7 so that I have lost track of HOW MANY books she has out this year, gives us BIRD OF PARADISE story in this trilogy. It is a gem of a comedy that says big is beautiful and a man and his cat should not be parted! Poking fun at the 'reality' telly shows, this one groups a bunch of bachelors and bachelorettes and puts them in competition to find true love. The one that does wins a million dollars. But there is shady dealings doing on, as Adam is not really a contestant - neither is his cat named Jesus!! He is a private eye on the trail of his best friends ex-girlfriend. Girlfriend is fed up with Superjock friend and has joint the hunt for true love, so friend bribes another contestant to let Adam take his place so he can spy on the lady. Only, she spots him and knows what the game is. Into the mix is another not there for romance, Hero. She is there in a last ditch effort to save her job and get the inside scoop on the show for the rag magazine for which she works. Between Adam, Hero and Jesus the cat...love is a forgone conclusion. Katie once again give you a lovable, less than perfect heroine in Hero and anyone who loves kitties will adore Jesus the cat. The Story will have you HOWLING with laughter. Jennifer Archer offer us BREAKING THE RULES, continuing the theme of men and women seeking romance - and a million dollars!! Claire and her fiancé, James, are contestants. THey are there because of James' not so brilliant idea - thinking the tropical local would bring them closer. Enters Mitch and sudden that plan is out the window. James not only lose a shot at the girl but the big bucks!! Sheridon Smythe's entry is HOT SHOT, and is another story of contests. This time Whitney and Rand as centre of focus. Whitney, again is not there for romance, but has come in search of the father she never knew. Daddy dearest is the host of the game show and she figures this is a good chance to see daddy up-close and judge him. Rand is there only because of his dead wife's fruitcake will. Since neither are there for romance, they figure they can give each other a cover and keep the other contestants from bothering them. What they did not count on was find love in paradise. Who wins???? I won't tell...you have to read!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
