Lottery in Paradise by Deborah Brown – Rated – 4 Out of 5 Stars

Crime and Sass, Oh Yes! Madison and Fabiana are two gals that you instantly adore! They are not only sassy and fabulous but are smart cookies who investigate crimes! This is a fun crime novel that keeps you on your toes! This is book 11 in this series but I had not yet read the first 10 (I will be now though)!

In this book the girls face many adventures that lead to creative thought…in one instance they are are hired as limo drivers to retrieve a rich drunk girl and her drunkard friends home from break. The drive ends up being WAY more than the girls bargained for and way more than the rich girl’s father could handle.  Either way, they got the job completed and it was FUN reading it.  But there is SO much more going on then crazy job assignments in their fanatical lives. Their house keeps getting broken into and on top of that their neighbor, the lotto winner, is murdered!

I loved that this book had two dynamic leading ladies who bring sass and adventure to crime solving.  They are two girls that you wished really existed so that you could become besties with them!  Their characters are witty, funny and of course…. sassy!  I liked that there was crime, drama, romance and comedy in this book (all of my favorite genres rolled into one).  It’s a fun read that allows your mind to dive into adventure and fantasy. It was a little slow for me at first but I assume it’s because I haven’t read the previous 10 books but it didn’t take long for me to find myself intrigued and invested in this awesome duo and their adventures!  It was a fun read that I didn’t want to put down! I plan on ordering the previous 10 and enjoying this whole series!

I rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars.  This book has everything I love to read in a good fiction book.  I have a feeling this rating will move to a 5 once I’m done with all of the series and I’ve learned even more about the amazing duo, their boyfriends and Madison’s crazy family!

Overall, I really enjoyed this book!  It gave me all the feels of a good crime romance/drama!  It’s a great read to dive into when you just want to get lost in somebody else’s crazy and funny story!

Meet the crime-solving duo of the Florida Keys: Madison who has all the charm of the girl next door, not to mention a deadly aim and Fab, her best friend, a femme fatale private investigator with a taste for danger and stilettos. When their neighbor is found dead, the headlines read, “It doesn’t pay to be a lottery winner.” It gets you nothing but an endless line of crazies at your door, greedy relatives and acquaintances. Sleuths Madison and Fab don’t have time to be concerned about the latest murder; they have problems of their own trying to figure out why their house has suddenly become the focus of several attempted break-ins. The duo are off on more adventures — what could go wrong chauffeuring a limousine full of college girls? Or chasing after a custom Ferrari? Along the way, there’s a break-up, a wedding, and the usual run-ins with the law. If you like sassy, exciting crime novels, then you’ll love Lottery in Paradise, the eleventh book in the scorching Paradise series about two seductive ladies who use unconventional and highly entertaining measures to maintain the peace in the steamy and twisted paradise of Tarpon Cove. 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!”

Available to buy from…Amazon.com    Amazon.co.uk   Amazon Paperback 

“Another FABULOUS book by one of my favorite authors. I love how there are always several different stories going on. I loved the ending…” 

“Another great story in the Paradise series! My love for these quirky characters grows with every book! Hope they never end!”

“An excellent story that is jammed packed with fun, happiness, anger, & a few stupid decisions. She captures the reader’s attention & keeps it from beginning to end. This is another winner in the Paradise series!”

 Book Excerpt Fab hit the steering wheel with a closed fist. “I’m going to run that jerk off the road.” “No. You. Are. Not. And you’re not going to shoot out his tires either.” Though there was a zero chance of that happening. As talented as the hot, sexy woman was, she couldn’t steer and shoot at the same time. “We’ll act like normal people and call the police.” Normal, I laughed to myself. I hadn’t heard myself described that way in a long time. Mostly, I heard “weird” bandied about. An over-exaggeration – I’m familiar with weird, and that’s not me. “You better come up with something better than that.” Fab pulled up alongside the truck on the driver’s side. I powered the window down and hung my head out, my hand in mid-air, ready to flag the man down, even though I knew that chances were slim that he’d pull over. Pulling my head back in the window, I said, “Change of plans.” I pushed my red hair back into place, smoothing it down, certain it was a wind-whipped mess. “The fancy tow truck is one of Brick’s.” Brick and I had a tenuous relationship; it was hard to trust him when I knew he never put Fab’s safety first, or mine either. He opposed our relationship, knowing that several times I had convinced my daring friend to calm down and rethink her plan. As backup to Super PI Fab, there were few jobs that didn’t include flying bullets and running for our lives. I was happy for the respite. So were our boyfriends,who’d had a face-to-face with Brick, laying down the rules: no more withholding details, and if it came out after the fact that he knew there was a high chance of danger, it would be the last mistake he would make. My boyfriend followed that up with a right cross to Brick’s eye.>Fab made an outraged sound. “I don’t believe you.”

About the Author

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.
