Book Review - Ambushed in Paradise by Deborah Brown
Ambushed in Paradise (Florida Keys Mystery Series Book 12) - Deborah Brown

Here we go again with the crazy gang in the Florida Keys, but this time it is a bitter heart ache for Madison as the love of her life has gone. Faced with the prospect of being alone and not wanting to interfere with her souls mate love life she throws herself into even more wild situations than before. This is to try and avoid the sympathy factor and give her the chance to grieve in her own way.

The usual characters are larger than life and show how much compassion and love they have for Madison in her time of need. The full range of human emotions is felt in this particular story and you just want to reach out and protect Madison. The excellent character traits of those around her are expertly described especially with not knowing what do for the best.

The story is another page turning adventure of fast cars, guns, love and the feeling of loss and the hope of the future. Another fantastic instalment from Deborah Brown and cannot wait for the next escapades in Florida Keys.

MERRY MURDER by C. S. McDonald
Merry Murder: A Fiona Quinn Mystery (Vol... Merry Murder: A Fiona Quinn Mystery (Volume 2) - C.S. McDonald

Set at Christmas, Fiona's Uncle Wilbur, who plays Santa at the mall, is murdered.  Why?

 

I enjoyed this book more than the first one in the series.  I had a better sense of the characters and liked the dynamics between Fiona and Nathan.  I liked Uncle Wilbur.  The short time he was in the book, I could see him as Santa.  I also enjoyed her kindergarten class, especially Lincoln.  Don't know if I wanted him around much but he is the kid who enjoys ruining things for others.  I figured out the why but not the who until the end when it was going down.  The mystery was good and made sense.  There was humor in it.  It was fun and I look forward to more Fiona.

POP-UP TRUCK AND PERIL by Harper Lin
Pop-Up Truck and Peril (The Pink Cupcake... Pop-Up Truck and Peril (The Pink Cupcake Mysteries Book 5) - Harper Lin

A secretary is murdered at Master Ketchup where Christine, Amelia's best friend works.  Christine is afraid that the murderer meant to kill her as Danielle, the secretary, was temporarily assigned to Christine's marketing department. She asks Amelia to move her cupcake truck to outside Master Ketchup so she could investigate the murder.  Dan, of course, has asked Amelia to stay out of the murder investigation.

 

I enjoyed this story.  John's wedding plans are heating up and people are getting upset over those plans.  Amelia supports her children no matter what.  Dan is fitting very well in Amelia's and the kids' lives.  I liked that the murder was fit into the daily lives of the characters involved but that it was only a part of their lives.  We get more of who they are and their relationships with each other.  I figured out who the murderer was and why (unusual for me.} 

 

I look forward to more in this series.

A CROISSANT TO DIE FOR by Rachel White
A Croissant to Die For… (A Jenna Dubois ... A Croissant to Die For… (A Jenna Dubois Mystery) - Rachel White

First book in the Jenna Dubois Mystery series.  Verena Mason is murdered in Jenna's patisserie shop's kitchen.  The cops think it is her but when Verena's Uncle Ray dies at her funeral they have to change their minds.

 

I liked Jenna and her regulars.  They are fun.  The story kept me intrigued and wanting more.  It needed a little fleshing out to be totally believable but I want to read more of the series.  I did not figure it and needed the explanation at the end.
