above reviews from Amazon
I’ve been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; writing poetry, short stories, a romance novel secretly stashed under the bed and sappy love letters. Fiction should be fun. I wanted to create the perfect beach book, to make the reader laugh, cry and cheer… and then run out and tell their friends about it.
My love of reading began when I was seven, the day I opened the cover of my first Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Mrs. P gave lessons to other children in how to behave and to me I learned to love the written word. I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

Let’s start with Kidnapped in Paradise is book seven in a series, as you can tell above. I have never read any of the previous six so I can wholeheartedly say you can read the book as a stand alone. Did I want a book eight when I was done? Without a doubt. Did I put books one through six on my want to read list? You know it.I have always wanted to visit the Florida Keys. I have been to a lot of the 48 contiguous states but Florida is not on the list. The Keys are definitely not a place I have been. The description of this location made me want to buy a bikini – not a thought I have had since probably junior high – and head south right now. Of course, I am sure I would find the weather in such a beautiful place not as great as I am making it in my head. I’m okay with that. As much as I will always say I’m a mountain girl, the water draws me in just as much.
The characters in Deborah Brown’s novel are witty and gorgeous. Of course, all those who spend time in the Keys are supposed to be gorgeous. How else can they wear bikinis? Madison and Fabiana are friends who, I presume, met in one of the previous books. Evidently Fab broke into Madison’s house and stayed, spoiling her cat in the process. Both have boyfriends. If you know me, you know how I hate that term for grown men but these four are young enough I guess I’ll let that pass. Madison also has an ex-husband who plays a prominent role in this book. The opening scene introduces you to these five characters and lays a pretty good path for what is to come.
I kept waiting for the kidnapped portion of the title to be fulfilled. I’m not saying it didn’t happen. I’m saying I anticipated it being a first part of the book and I had to wait. The opening scene with someone tied to a chair was not the “kidnapped” that the title focuses on and I am glad for that.
I pick up books to escape from my real life. When I get one that too closely focuses on reality, I am not as happy about spending time reading it. I am very happy I read Kidnapped in Paradise as it is just what I am looking for in a novel. It takes me away from my daily life and puts me in a different place.
