Oh my goodness - this book threw in some pulls to the heart strings (two types of family additions!) and I LOVED it!! Even with the same set of characters, this series is very entertaining, each with their own twists. A fun read for the beach!

Another rip roaring ride in Tarpon Cove with the return of the eccentric occupants and our heroines Fab and Madison. No matter what they do, trouble follows with a vengeance. What do you do when your family becomes threatened from an unknown source? Obviously you defend it to the hilt. The strength factor of this novel is how close the relationships are between the lead characters and what lengths they will go to defend and prove the allegations made against them are false. Using her network on both sides of law, Madison has to prove her relation Brad is not guilty of killing his ex lover but the journey to find the truth takes her down a deep path that she is not prepared for. The one thing that shines through the story is the unrelenting love all the characters share and will do anything to protect each other. You can never get bored of reading about the trials and tribulations of Madison and Fab as each story line is cleverly planned to keep the plot fresh and up to date. Deborah Brown has created a group of characters whose lives will live on in anyone who has read her books and always keeps the reader wanting more.

In Book 15, we find ourselves elbows deep in the usual hot mess situations. Brad, Madison’s brother, has a familiar dead body in his trunk. Fab is doing her best to make sure she doesn’t go back on her promise to stay on the straight and narrow and Madison? Well Madison is just dealing with the chaos one situation at a time. Now, like I said before, this is book 15 in the series. I would most definitely recommend reading them in order but not because you won’t understand this book as a standalone installment but because there is so much history and the characters have all really grown up and out throughout these books. I have enjoyed the journey so much more than I could have anticipated when I originally read Book 1. Now I impatiently wait for the next book to devour it like all the books in the series before.

The Tarpon Cove crew have done it again! These people tend to find themselves in every sort of mess imaginable (and some not so imaginable ones as well!!), but it always makes for great reading. This entire book was full of twists and surprises, even more than most of the others. There is also plenty of action, suspense, and humor, with occasional snippets of romance. We meet a couple of new characters in this book, one related to each of the girls--there should be more to come in those storylines in the future. The book is easily read as a stand-alone novel, but if you want to get the full impact of all the interpersonal relationships, I would suggest reading the entire series. It will be well worth your time.

The sweetest book ever from the series Prepare your heart to melt with a beautiful baby girl. She is so precious and will melt your heart out. This book is the sweetest ever from the series. It is fun filled of adventures from the two sisters from different mothers. These girls never stop to amazed you with their lives full of family love, chaos and danger stunts. The Westin's and their closed friends will blow your mind away. I really enjoyed reading this book. Fab had her happily ever after and cannot wait for Madison and Creole.

After more than a dozen books in a series with the same characters, you might expect things to get boring. Not in the Paradise series by Deborah Brown. We gain not one, but two new members of the Fab & Madison clan this time around--one related to each of the girls. Unfortunately, there are some dark flashbacks of characters best left forgotten by the family, as well. At least one of those bad guys is dead now. That should be a good thing, except that the body turned up in Brad's car. There was a bombshell ending to the last book, Blownup in Paradise, so I was eager to see how that would play out in the newest book, Psycho in Paradise. You know those crazy family dinners where brawls break out and things go horribly awry? That's how that unfolds. There's still more to come in that particular part of the story line, so that's something to look forward to next time. While summer may be ending for some climates, you can hang on to that beach vibe by escaping into Psycho in Paradise for your mental Florida vacation, even after school starts.

When you pick up a book in the Paradise Series you just know you are in for a mad-cap ride with Madison and Fab. Every book has some sort of family drama or some sort of shenanigans that the girls get in to so with a title of Psycho I did have to wonder what on earth could go on in this one! Well, I didn't have to wait to long for an answer, Madison's brother Brad is being framed for the murder of his psycho ex girlfriend who is found in the trunk of his car! He swears blind he didn't do it and Madison enlists Fab to help uncover the truth, though that puts the girls in danger! There is never a dull moment that is for sure, and you would think 15 books in that the girls would learn, but Deborah still manages to make each book unique, engaging and gives you a hook to get you to come back and read more. We are in for a surprise with this story when we learn who the identity of the elusive GC, I have been dying to find out who it was and Deborah did not disappoint! For all this is book 15 it is easily read as a stand alone, but once you start you will want to go back and start from the very beginning - I guarantee it!

I have not read all of the books in the series, but this was still quite enjoyable to read as a stand-alone novel. It is a fabulous mystery that will capture your undivided attention. And it is always nice to read a story with strong female characters. The characters are undeniably intriguing. The Author has a fantastic writing style that will have you looking forward to reading more from this series!

Returning to the series with this one, Psycho in Paradise is like putting on a comfy pair of slippers and meeting up with a gang of old friends. This time Madison’s brother Brad is in the frame for the murder of his ex Patty. Is he innocent or has he been framed? In amongst Fab and Madison’s madcap adventures, hunky Creole and Didier try to exert some sort of order with the two feisty female detectives – not always succeeding. Could there be a marriage on the cards? Mother and Spoon are still in charge of the Westin clan but there’s the appearance of the enigmatic Caspian, Fab’s biological father. Handsome, very wealthy but does he have an agenda. As usual, Brown takes us on a breathless whirl around the Keys with one adventure after another and the inhabitants of The Cottages are as whacky and unusual as ever – and Miss January is in love. Again. I won’t spoil the plot any more other to say you’ll enjoy this one and there’s plenty of sunshine yet to be extracted from the Paradise series.

Heavens--now every one knows that Brad, Madison's brother, is upfront and honest. Of course he also has horrible taste in the women he dates! When one of those women is found dead in the trunk of his car---you know the entire clan is out to find out who set him up and to exonerate him!! Plenty of other really crazy stuff going on. Some good--some bad. Fab is really trying hard to stay away from shady cases--and drawing Madison in with her--their boyfriends are ever vigilant-ha--good luck with that! Someone is getting married--and someone else is trying to hide the fact that she is engaged---you will really have to read this book to find out--I am not spilling the beans!!

Deborah Brown does a phenomenal job writing Madison and Fab - their adventures draw me in every time! I enjoy reading long-term series (like this one!) and often find myself getting bored, finding errors in details from reading earlier books in the series, etc.; however, Deborah is spot-on every time! Madison and Fab are always finding themselves in a bit of trouble and end up wrapping their loves, friends, and family into the mystery mix. Fab is trying to stay legit but we all know that these gals are like a magnet for intrigue, mystery, and adventure. Honestly, I wish I could go on an adventure with them. I'm sure they'd open my eyes to a whole new world! Deborah does a fantastic job of keeping the characters in sync with who they were from book one, while still managing to make them grow with each new book. When Brad's crazy ex-girlfriend is found dead, in his SUV, the girls take on the mission of proving his innocence. I always think they're too close to the case but they never disappoint in how fun they make a bad situation. Definitely a good thing because I keep on coming back! 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.

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. I've read most of the books in this series and I've fallen in love with the characters. They've become like good friends, and I'm always looking forward to their next story or adventure. Madison and Fab are best friends and although they've calmed down over the years, they're still good private investigators. They are just trying to stay away from the more dangerous cases. Somehow, though, that doesn't always work out. Brad, Madison's brother, is caught with the body of his dead crazy ex-girlfriend in his new SUV. Although his family knows that he's innocent, it's going to be difficult to keep him out of prison unless they can figure out who killed her. The police are investigating, but Fab and Madison feel the need to get involved, which has both good and bad consequences. Both Madison and Fab are engaged and I've been waiting for a wedding. It looks like one is finally on the horizon. And there a couple new family members! The Paradise books are fun to read but they also tend to tug at your heartstrings. What more could you want from a book when it can make you laugh and cry, sometimes on the same page? Although this series is best read in order, all of the books stand alone. I definitely recommend them if you like independent women who are loyal and passionate about family, life and love.

I loved loved loved this installment in the Paradise series. I have read all of the books in this series and they always hook me. They have humor, suspense, mystery, thrill, action, and romance that draw you in and keep you sucked in. This was one of my favorite reads of the series. It held all the same humor, suspense, mystery, thrill, action and romance as the previous books but had an amazing surprise; as well as a slight edge on the suspense part. I have grown to love the characters that we have met and followed through all the series and cannot wait for more! Just when I thought the action might be slowing down and coming to an end, Deborah Brown through in a twist that gripped me! I highly recommend the entire series (I have loved them all) but each book can be read as a stand alone. The author does an excellent job keeping catching us up on previous books so you won’t feel lost. This is definitely one series you won’t regret reading.

Have I ever mentioned I've never been in the state of Florida in my life? Well, that is probably why I am always looking so forward to the next Paradise book. Its setting is some place I've never been. Set in the Florida Keys, Madison is helping her brother Brad out of a tight spot. His car is stopped and, lo and behold, his ex-girlfriend's dead body is in the trunk. While everyone in the family thinks Brad would be within his rights to take care of his ex-girlfriend, Brad swears he was set up. To help, Madison may have to withhold information from her boyfriend, Creole, as she uses some interesting connections. It's in Psycho in Paradise that Madison and Fab find out the true identity of one of their anonymous sources. You'll have to read the book to know how they find out this information. Pick up a copy of Psycho in Paradise, grab a cold drink and settle in for a true getaway from, at least my, reality. 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.

When Madison’s brother Brad is arrested for the murder of his ex-girlfriend Patti, Madison vows to do everything she can to clear his name. But will it be enough? Now with psycho Patti dead, that’s one nuisance gone for Brad, but what Madison uncovers will change his life forever. When I read the title, my first thought was, how can things get any more psycho than they already have? Plenty more, it seems. All the usual characters make their appearances, along with the usual drama and catastrophes that follow. It’s a wild ride in the Florida Keys so you better hold on for dear life. But, you’ll no doubt enjoy it to the end! I always do.
