Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author of Rumor Has It, Rescue My Heart, and the Lucky Harbor novels...

Statistically speaking, these years are supposed to be the sexual highlight of Dorie Anderson’s life. So where are the highlights already?

One phone call has turned Dorie’s dead-end life into an adventure: she’s won a trip on a singles cruise to Fiji. With her cutest outfits packed and the Love Boat theme in her head, Dorie boards—and soon meets two irresistible men: a pro baseball player with an irresistible Texas drawl, and the ship’s dark and mysterious French doctor, Dr. Christian Montague. She’s sure to fall head-over-heels in no time. She just never expected to do it so quickly, or so literally, tripping over her luggage.

With her foot twisted and her ego deflated, Dorie’s dream vacation is about to take the biggest detour yet. A violent storm has wrecked the ship and cast everyone ashore. A deserted island would be the perfect setting for a steamy romance, if something sinister wasn’t lurking. Whose alluring arms will Dorie run to? Being stuck never felt so…liberating.

Dorie Anderson receives a phone message out of the blue saying she won a week in Fiji along with a few others. She needed an escape from her duller than dull life. It was perfect timing. Among a cast of exciting and sexy characters she is shipwrecked thanks to an unexpected storm where someone is mysteriously missing.and the fun begins..There is the fight to stay alive, suspense in wondering who "did it", and lots of juicy passion to keep the reader sitting on the edge of her seat. This is truly an exciting, fun, sexy read that will keep you entertained for hours.

Decent story, but not $8 worth. Did they wrap up what happened to the bad guys? Either I missed it or the author didn't deem it important enough... The end seemed rushed. Not one of Jill's best...

Dorie Anderson's life is just not turning out as great as she had hoped. She is at a dead in job in the retail world, when really what she wants is to be a fashion designer. Then consider her love life, or lack of in any case. All in the blink of an eye Dorie is on her way to Fiji on a cruise with not one but two hunky men who have caught her eye. Things turn sour when the yacht ends up in a terrible storm leaving them shipwrecked. At least she has sexy doctor, Christian to tend to her needs. The Trouble with Paradise is not a terribly deep story. If you are looking for something simple and cute to pass the time then this is the book for you. Dorie is a sweet heroine who has a tendency to stumble her way into things. She is a very klutzy heroine, but she has luck on her side. She may not know it, none-the-less. I liked the premise of the story. Girl looking for adventure and romance finds more than she can handle when her vacation boat ends up shipwrecked. I thought that more time would be spent on the island. It doesn't actually happen until two/thirds through the book. There is a little bit of complication because one of the crew members ends up missing and the characters don't know if it was foul play or not. That mystery was a bit distracting from the romance between Dorie and Christian. Also, I never understood why Christian kept pushing Dorie away when he was obviously drawn to her. Overall this was an easy read and was a nice way to pass the time.
