Review: Crazy in Paradise by Deborah Brown

Crazy in Paradise is the debut novel of Deborah Brown from CreateSpace.

Book Blurb:

Dying in the middle of the summer, in the Florida Keys is sweaty business. When Madison Westin inherits her Aunt's beachfront motel, a variety of colorful tenants - drunks, ex-cons and fugitives come along. 

The big problem: She has to wrestle control from both the lawyer and the conniving motel manager. She enlists the help of her new best friend whose motto is  never leave home without your Glock.  

Welcome to Trapon Cove, land of hot tan lines, drugs on demand, blackmail and murder.

My thoughts:

Though Madison Westin visited her Aunt Elizabeth’s beach house most every summer - she is really a fish out of water when she meets the folks who’ve been living at The Cottages, the rental property her Aunt owned.

Now owner of both properties, Madison is determined to do right by her Aunt’s memory and run The Cottages to the best of her ability.

Recently divorced and looking at life in a whole new way, Madison wants to prove to her family that she is a strong, capable, independent woman.

The first test comes when she finds an associate of Aunt Elizabeth’s bleeding on the chaise beside the swimming pool.

Her fortitude is further tested when Madison tries to deal with the self appointed manager at The Cottages and the lawyer handling her Aunt’s estate.

Madison is now seeing a completely different side to her favorite Aunt - and wondering just how well she really knew her.

Crazy in Paradise is a quirky read and I enjoyed it.

I give Crazy in Paradise 3 out of 5 stars.
