$25 Amazon/PP-1-WW-Hurricane in Paradise-Deborah Brown-Ends 3/19

Monday, February 27, 2017


One of the worst hurricanes to hit the Keys in many years--luckily Madison's boyfriend drags her out of her house (along with her 2 cats!) and they get to safety------But after Mother Nature has done her worst--the hurricane really begins! Madison comes back to discover there are squatters in her house who claims to have a lease? Then all kinds of mishaps occur--people found dead--Miss January, well she is still causing all kinds of trouble--and the worst--Madison's lawyers GRANDMOTHER shows up for a vacation. Trust me--she is like no other Grandmother you or I know! THEN--Madison's brother disappears. Madison and Fab have their hands full--and their boyfriends have an even harder time trying to stop them. Just as all seems settled Madison gets a phone call from her Mother. But she tells her off--she wants to be alone with her boyfriend. Well-----Mother's always get their own way--and Madison is in for the surprise of her life!!

Set against the steamy backdrop of Tarpon Cove's sun-kissed, tropical waters, sexy sleuths and best friends Madison and Fab are at it again dealing with the occasional dead body. Hidden just below the surface of the small town lies an underworld, one steeped in deceit, corruption, and deadly secrets. It's only a matter of time before Madison and Fab find themselves on a collision course with the police, who consider them likely suspects in a murder.

Ride along on their adventures when the duo realizes that a family member is missing and pull themselves away from all jobs to track him down. Theories: walked away, freak accident, kidnapped? If so, then why no ransom demand?

Hurricane in Paradise is book ten in the thrilling and humorous provocative Paradise series, which finds the two waist-deep in mystery and romance. It is a smart, adventurous read that delivers heart-thumping, non-stop action. Join Madison and Fab as they solve the most twisted of cases, through unconventional ¬– and highly entertaining – measures… sometimes in flip-flops.

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.....

"Deborah Brown's Florida Keys mystery series is highly addictive! The characters are quirky & amusing. The dialogue is snappy. The plot highly entertaining & thrilling. All the oddball cast of characters are back as well as Mad's & Fab's deliciously hunky loves, Creole & Didier." 

"Madison and Fab are so much fun to read about along with their better halves. This time there's murder (of course), a missing family member and a crazy grandma! You'll love this book so much!"

"Once again Deborah Brown has written a wonderful humerous highly entertaining book."

About the Author

I've been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; writing poetry, short stories, a romance novel secretly stashed under the bed and sappy love letters. Fiction should be fun. I wanted to create the perfect beach book, to make the reader laugh, cry and cheer... and then run out and tell their friends about it.

My love of reading began when I was seven, the day I opened the cover of my first Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Mrs. P gave lessons to other children in how to behave and to me I learned to love the written word. I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

Book Review- Zalman Ber: The True Story of the Man the Nazis Could Not Kill - Lisa Mishler

Sunday, February 26, 2017

Heroism. courage and a lot of luck in this true story of a pair Holocaust survivors as told to the author by her father. It is a story that should be read. It is in the recounting and remembering the past that will ultimately stop us from repeating that history! I don't remember who originally said this but

"Those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it"

This recounting is particularity relevant in these times we are going through right now in my opinion.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Zalman Ber's story, told in his own voice, is a powerful addition to the historical recountings of World War II. Together, he and his wife, Luba, survived the Holocaust. They escaped the horrors the Nazis inflicted on their Polish villages. They fought with partisans. Then later, Zalman enlisted with the Russian military.

Their story is about love, war, heroism, and miracles. It is a testament to their resiliency and capacity not just to survive, but to flourish and rise above tremendous adversity. Love, courage, and a sheer force of will drove Luba during her long journey to find Zalman, alone, in one of the coldest winters in recorded history while being surrounded by Nazi soldiers. Luba with her sensitivity influenced Zalman when, time and time again, he should have been killed and was not. Their story deserves to be experienced and honored.
