Synopsis: The Keys is a great place to hide a seashell bucket full of secrets.
Creole…shot…dead. Three words Madison Westin never thought she’d hear in the same sentence. Creole promised. He pinky swore on it.
But even through a blur of tears fed by prescription-strength margaritas, Madison can tell when things are shady. Sure, Creole was undercover, but she deserves more than sketchy non-answers, an urn of ashes, and a secret life crawling out of the woodwork.
Nothing’s adding up, nothing that remotely sounds like the Creole she knew and loved. Calling in every one of her IOU’s—only to find some of her most reliable information sources drying up—Madison sets out to dig up what really happened to Creole. She never thought the truth would wrap its arms around her and make her wonder if she’s chasing a ghost… or taking a vacation from sanity.
Ambushed in Paradise is book #12 in the action-packed Paradise series. Come along with Madison and Fab as they dig up the truth and share more than one hair-raising adventure.
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!”

Review: Most of this book was heartbreaking to read, as we follow Madison's journey through grieving for Creole after she learns he was shot and killed while undercover. But even in the midst of her grief, she and Fabiana are in the middle of a mystery or two of their own.
I was disappointed in the way Brad and Philipa acted in this book for the most part, as it feels like neither of them is going to have Madison's back any longer. Madison's mother irritated me on more than one occasion. I can understand that she was worried about her daughter, but I think she went a bit overboard at times.
Even with such a heavy storyline, there is still plenty of the humor we've come to expect from these books--Crum's gardening class immediately comes to mind, as well as Mad and Fab's interactions with Brick.
Since I've already read book #13, Christmas In Paradise, I'm anxious to see where #14 will take us!!
I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
Rating: Five stars
About the AuthorI'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.
