Overview

When a man of questionable character's corpse is found at The Cottages, beaten to death with Madison's own gardening tools, she and her partner, Fab, set out to prove that the man's abused girlfriend did not kill him. Along the way, Madison finds herself behind bars twice, held hostage in a mansion, and running from flying bullets. There is no shortage of action, suspense, comedy, or romance in this edge-of-your-seat story of two friends with a knack for getting into-and somehow out of-trouble. This time they must answer one question: Who is responsible for getting their Revenge in Paradise?

This is the 6th book in the Paradise series… and I’ve read all 6 now. I keep thinking that eventually Deborah Brown’s world revolving around Madison will get a little old… but each book keeps me reading. I just can’t say enough about how entertaining the characters are (both the main characters and all of the people around them). I can’t get enough of Madison and Fab: best friends and partners… they are constantly in the middle of chaos. Once again the main mystery (of the dead man in the gardening shed) kept me guessing. But, it was almost secondary to the rest of the crazy things that Madison found herself in the middle of. I don’t know how she keeps her head on straight. Her cottages, a car wash, a bar, a trailer park… how many places can one girl handle??? (I can’t even manage to get a book review done on time!!!) I know I previously said that I would have a hard time if I were Madison and had to choose between Zach and Creole… but I’ve decided it’s no contest. I’m team Creole all the way. The more time I read about Madison and Creole together (either as friends, or a couple… or with the family) the more I love him (and them together). While Madison’s relationship with Zach was exciting and all over the place… her relationship with Creole is almost comfortable, while still being hot. Yep… team Creole all the way.

The sixth book and adventure of Madison and Fab and again the reader is definitely not left disappointed. Fab and Madison are drawn into a murder case and in their madcap world all things are equal, to get to the truth favours have to be paid and owed.  As usual Madison ends up behind bars twice. The love life of the characters is as mad as their hectic lifestyle and adds spice to a very good read. The characters and their roles are growing and becoming more endearing in every storyline we read about them. Another fun filled story based around Tarpon Grove and what is defined as paradise to one person is different to another and obviously to Madison and Fab paradise is one of adventure and living close to the edge, making for another great read.

The best of the Paradise Series yet for me.  Though Revenge in Paradise is my thirst book that I read from the series, it is my favorite so far. There is laughter aside from suspense and adventure from there two best friends Madison and Fabiana. I am surprise that their boyfriends are still loving them unconditionally. I salute these hot guys for coping up with their crazy girl friends.  The book is full of crime and suspense which will keep your brain in a twist. I loved this book so much that it took me a day to finished reading it. Madison and Creole is my favorite and can't wait if these two will get married somewhere in the series. I am looking forward for it and cannot wait.  I highly recommend this book.  I cannot wait for the next book in the series. Thank you Ms. Deborah Brown for the never-ending adventure. You rock the Paradise series so good.

I have read a few books from this series and I have never been let down. This is a book that’s filled with suspense and action. But it also has a heck of a lot of romance and passion. I don't want to say much, because I wouldn't want to spoil it. But I will tell you that it is an excellent beach read that’s fun, and exciting with romance, murder and mayhem.

I read Crazy in Paradise and Greed in Paradise and I was looking forward to reading this book. The Paradise books are quick, fun reads.  Madison Westin and her best friend, Fabiana, are constantly getting into trouble. Madison’s boyfriend, Creole, has to get them out of scrapes and near misses, over and over. Not only do they have a murder mystery to solve, but even a simple job, like dropping off an expensive car to its new owner, turns into an adventure. Now that Madison and Fab both have boyfriends, they make a great foursome, and two great couples. I really like the relationship that Madison has with Creole. Deborah Brown’s writing flows well and is easy to read. This book is full of action and suspense as well as romance and humor. A typical quote: "I settled back in a chair, careful to make sure I sat on my skirt; otherwise, the backs of my legs stuck to the plastic and made an unfortunate sucking noise when I stood." Anyone who likes women’s fiction or mystery will like Revenge in Paradise. I highly recommend it and I hope there will be more of these books in the future.

Brown hits a home run again for me. I really like reading about Madison's antics. Although, I'm not sure about her taste in men. This is book 6 in a hopefully long running series and poor Madison is technically on husband/boyfriend number three. I've got to say I've got my favorite of the trio, do you?  Madison's gardener has even worst taste in men than Madison does. The poor girl not only has a loser boyfriend, but is then arrested for his murder. Fab and Madison are 100% sure she is innocent, at least Madison is, Fab is a tad skeptical as usual when in comes to trusting people. The DA thinks she has a slam dunk case. Cue in Madison's protective instincts for the down-trodden members of society.

I have really gotten in to this series. Deborah Brown really knows how to hook a reader in and keep them. Fab and Madison are not lacking in the love or adventure department. This book gets them into some really tough spots but they do come out unscathed. I was on the edge of my seat (ok my bed where I read) when I was reading this book. I was able to finish it really fast just like the rest in the series because I want to know what will happen next. I really like that Madison and Fab have found love in their crazy adventurous lives because it makes the series better. I cant wait to crack open the next book in the series!

God do I love these books! Such an amazing series and the story keeps going on and on but what I love most is that you can read these books alone if you haven't read 1-5 yet OR you can binge read them and still never get tired of the characters and stories! This installment of Madison Westin's life takes a bit of a different turn focusing more on Fabiana, Madison's crazy best friend, for a good bit and it isn't as sweet and funny as the others. It has more of a mystery feel to it than the others and honestly it was on point! Also the storyline that had started a couple of books before with Creole as Madison's love interest is getting better and hotter if that is even possible! I don't find myself pining for Zach at all. There was a death and of course some how Madison became the prime suspect but hey, what can you do? Deborah Brown has to make sure Madison spends some time behind bars or on the other side of the law. How else would we get the awesome stories we do? I definitely think that this one is the best story yet BUT I do get to review Kidnapped in Paradise next so I am sure that it will beat this one with a bat! Go and pick it up! You won't be sorry!

I love the Paradise series! I can’t get enough of it and hate when they end – Revenge in Paradise was no exception! Madison and Fab are great together, but I felt a lot of tension during this book and Fab actually got on my nerves. Her insensitive nature is wearing on me, but we did get a very sentimental moment from her at one point. I am beyond ecstatic that we no longer have to deal with Zach (which is funny because at the beginning of the series I absolutely loved him.) I felt Revenge in Paradise had quite a bit more suspense than the previous books in this series and a lot, lot more trouble for the girls than usual too (you would think they would re-evaluate their connections!) I love Creole and Madison together and hope this continues on the same path – the same for Fab and Didier. The men are just so yummy in this series! Glad to see what got rid of one yucky officer, but now Kevin needs an attitude adjustment (there’s always someone isn’t there!?) Revenge in Paradise rates up along with the rest of the series and I can’t wait to read the next one. I seriously cannot get enough of these books! I cannot wait to see what is in store next for the girls – their escapades, the suspense, the humor, and the steamy romances keep me turning the page!

I absolutely love this series! Madison and Fab are an amazing pair of women, and the situations that they get themselves in are laugh out loud outrageous! The plotline starts out simple enough, the abusive boyfriend of Madison's gardener shows up dead in the gardening shed at The Cottages, and their gardener is accused of murder. Of course Madison sets out to prove that she's innocent and pulls Fab along with her. Like any good Paradise story, Deborah Brown soon has multiple small story lines going at the same time, with lots of action, jail time and hostages. I'm so happy that Madison and Creole are spicing up their relationship and that Zach is off the radar, because the sparks between these two are off the charts. This book is a fast paced, fun read that makes you long for the next one! I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

I've read every book in this series thus far, so of course I was eager to pick up where all of the characters had left off. Especially Madison & Creole! I'll be honest, by the title alone, I was a little nervous as to what kind revenge was going to take place. Little did I know that the whole story was going to be twists & turns from one scenario of revenge to another. But my little heart was content that Madison & Creole made it through the story unscathed as a couple. Well, there was that one incident at Jake's...but that's another story so to speak.  Revenge in Paradise could definitely be read as a stand alone book, but is far better after reading the others in the series because you learn so much about the characters & their backgrounds. Either way, I definitely recommend this to anyone who loves a fast paced crime novel with a twist of romance, a little grit & a bevy of "colorful" characters.

Any book in the paradise series will have you turning pages to find out all the details between Madison and Fab's eventful days. Whether they like it or not, these two get into all sorts of trouble and you will find yourself on the edge of your seat to see how they get out of it this time! Revenge in Paradise makes a perfect weekend read, you'll be ready for another immediately!

As with the other books in this series that I have read, this one was absolutely fantastic! Deborah Brown’s books are infectious!  Revenge in Paradise does have a serious side, with a murder, family angst, mayhem, mystery, sexy characters, and romance. It’s so much fun following Madison and Fab through their escapades and near death experiences.

Madison finally decided to go for it--Creole to be exact. That handsome undercover cop that is really like part of the family-despite her Mother's misgivings. Didier, Fab's georgous boyfriend and Creole get along famously and now all 4 are somewhat living in Madison's house--the one her Aunt left her in her will along with the motel which is filled to the brim with characters who always seem to need to be picked up from jail. This time it is not only her tenants-- Madison and Fab end up in all kinds of trouble as does Madison's Mom!!! Can these two men figure out a way to keep Madison and Fab alive and out of trouble? Hum-----Meanwhile Madison's brother has been dating as well and her son, Liam who has been informally adopted by Madisons family proves himself worthy of their trust! As with the other books in this series I laughed a lot!! Any of these books can be read as a stand alone--but it is fun to watch these character's evolve or not--

REVENGE IN PARADISE by Deborah Brown is a light-hearted Contemporary Romance. Compared has compared this funny satire to a Cozy Mystery. #6 in the "Paradise Florida Keys Mystery Series" and it can be read as a stand alone. Of course, I would suggest reading the others in this unique, quirky, humorous satire. With all serious, "Revenge in Paradise" does have a serious side, with a murder, family angst, mayhem, mystery, sexy characters, and romance. Ms. Brown has a unique writing style all of her own, while writing about a dysfunctional family, best friends and romance. A thoroughly enjoyable read with a satisfying and surprising ending. Fans of Cozy Mysteries, and Contemporary Romance both will enjoy this hilarious, laugh-out loud tale of murder, mayhem and romance. *I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.* **Cross-posted on My Book Addiction Reviews dot com** RATING: 4 HEAT RATING: MILD REVIEWED BY: AprilR, courtesy of My Book Addiction and More

When Madison and Creole sneak out and have a weekend rendezvous, they return just in time to see her mother and her best friend Fab being arrested. Of course, once they get past that, the next thing you know, another dead body appears on Madison’s Cottages property. But when Jami, the gardener, is arrested for murder, and there’s evidence to prove it, Madison knows she’s innocent and it’s up to her to find the killer.  Arrest, body, murder, chaos... So what’s new in the life of Madison Westin? This has become everyday routine, it seems. It’s so much fun following Madison and Fab through their escapades and near death experiences. This time though, reality caught up with Madison and made her rethink some of her activities and business dealings. I’m glad more of Mother and Brad’s personalities were highlighted. And I must say, Svetlana has become a bit more respectable, don’t you think? (You’ve got to read the book to understand that!)
