My name is Madison Westin. Unless it’s Christmas, in which case my official title is “Holiday Cheermistress.” Nothing stops me from getting my ho-ho-ho on, not even my friends’ Grinch-worthy attitude toward sparkling tinsel, twinkling lights, and tinkling bells.
Hey, if Creole, Fab, and Didier wind up with coal in their stockings, it won’t be my fault.
When some bah-humbug bandit makes the rounds of Tarpon Cove, Fab and I are on the case. It’s the least we can do for our loyal friends. Seasonal crime-victim disorder seems to be on the rise.
Some guy in a Santa suit—well, the top half of one anyway—is robbing local banks. The cops are fingering the wrong guy. And you can bet your light-up Rudolph boxers that if we can’t track the real thief down, one of my merry band of miscreants could be spending the holidays behind bars.
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!”
“South Florida author Deborah Brown books are infectious.”
I’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.
As usual, the setting of the Florida Keys makes Christmas in Paradise an interesting read. I can remember the Christmas I was 12 and we spent it at my aunt’s in North Carolina. It rained. I was so upset. Now that I am more than 12, that whole snow on Christmas is magical but the appeal of Christmas in a tropical setting does appeal.
Madison and her best friend, Fab, are on the case as someone in the top half of a Santa suit is robbing local banks. Add to this the fact that Madison is an over the top Christmas person while Fab, Fab’s boyfriend and Madison’s own boyfriend tend towards the bah humbug spectrum. Madison is not happy that someone is besmirching Santa’s good name.
There are so many other aspects of Christmas thrown into this book. The subplot around the department store Santa is hysterical. The family traditions are very believeable.
Get yourself in the holiday spirit and pick up a copy of Christmas in Paradise. 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.
