REVIEW BY HELEN - A Drop of Paradise by Alex L. Michaels
A Drop of Paradise - Alex L. Michaels
She needs peace and quiet. He's a distraction.
She wants to be left alone. He's inevitable.
She has a writer's block. He might be the cure.

The only thing Jessica Slade wanted was some peace and quiet, and to finally finish her book.

So, a place called A Drop of Paradise was supposed to do the trick. With its stunning sandy beaches, crystal clear, aquamarine waters and tropical sunsets, it was supposed to cure more than a writer's block. But, when an unfortunate series of events leaves her stranded on a remote island with an overbearing, arrogant, roguish, but ruggedly handsome stranger, her life starts to seem much more like the romance novels that she writes about. 

Broad-shouldered Mike Stone is irresistible, sexy and cooler than a mojito in your hand, and maybe even a perfect, muscled ideal for the cover of her next novel, but not all the imagination in the world could prepare her for what can happen between two strangers on a spit of sand, when sparks start to fly and anger turns to lust.

 

@Helen291283, #Contemporary, #Romance, #Comedy, 4 out of 5 (very good)

Fireworks in Paradise (A Tj Jensen Mystery) (Volume 8) - Kathi Daley

This was my first book by Kathi Daley and this was the 8th book in the series. 

The book was a decent read. However, I was not able to really get into the main character, T. J. She seemed pretty flat to me. I'm not sure if that was because the character was more developed in the earlier books or not.

And, for me, she was a little annoying in her attempts to find out what had happened in the accident that almost killed her father, but did kill his friend, the Judge.

I definitely found T. J. too annoying and bland to bother going back and reading the other seven books in the series.

Thanks to Henery Press and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Fun little cozy.
Pumpkins in Paradise (A Tj Jensen Mystery Book 1) - Kathi Daley

    

It’s Halloween time but it’s also the school reunion for TJ Jenson and things are hoping. Things get a little tense around when they find out that a news reporter from Second Look is coming to town to investigate a cold case. The murder happened when TJ was in High School and nobody had really thought of it since even though the case was never solved.

 

A lot of people are not happy with Samatha being there because they don’t want their secrets surfaced especially the killer because she soon dies in a car accident and nobody is sure if it was accidental or murder. Roy, the policemen in town is a bit overwhelmed with this since he is now the only cop. (can’t say why cause I don’t want to spoil things) So TJ comes on board to help him figure things out since she has been really good at it in the past.

 

I really like TJ and how she has stepped up and taken charge of your younger siblings. I love how her dad is so welcoming to them even though they are not his kids. It’s a really close knit family and TJ is learning how to balance being sort of mother but sister at the same time. She learns more it seems with each book and I am glad things are going well with her in the relationship department. 

 

It’s just fun being back with a bunch of characters I really enjoy.

 

It has a good murder and there were a lot of suspects and I never managed to figure out exactly who did it as the one I really thought did it wasn’t the killer.

 

These cozies are short but always have great story lines and a great mystery and I really like them. If you like cozies and are in the mood for a good short read then check out this series!

Fireworks in Paradise (A Tj Jensen Mystery) (Volume 8) - Kathi Daley

Kathi Daley has done it again with book 8 in her Tj Jensen Mystery series. I love that these books can be read as stand alones. I have read most of the series and have enjoyed every book. 

Fireworks in Paradise is the 8th book in the series. Tj is still in Gull Island South Caroline when she receives a call her beloved Father has been in a terrible accident and may not make it, and family Friend Judge Harper was killed. She rushes back home to stand vigil over her Father.  Once home she finds out the accident was not an accident when they discover the brake lines to the car has been cut. Tj of course dives right into the investigation even though the new police officer does not want her help. 

I love that the romance of Tj and long time friend Kyle is actually moving forward. Every book needs a bit of romance. The book does not center of the romance but I love the sweetness of it. Tj and Kyle have been awesome in the last few books as friends now I can see them going far as lovers as well.

Corporate eye-glazing
Paradise - Judith McNaught

My first contemporary by Judith McNaught gave me some of her fun emotional connection and a good amount of eye glazing department and corporate talk. Our leads had an instant connection when they met and I really enjoyed their back and forth tinged with sexual chemistry and sass. Unfortunately, Matt and Meredith don't spend a lot of time together. Their first go at it has them together for a whirlwind six days and then its not until the 60% mark that they get to spend any real time together. 

There was way too much corporate world talk for me and caused me to put off grabbing this back up to read. For having a bit older of a publishing date, this still held up pretty well. There was some high drama, with a lot of it coming from Meredith when she was upset, she was portrayed a pretty dramatic; it seemed to be feeding into this time period's love of overstating the thought that women are high strung emotional beings. 

I would have liked the corporate talk 80% slashed, Matt and Meredith spending more time together, and less of a rushed ending.
