Hurricane in Paradise by Deborah Brown
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As an almost native Floridian, I can certainly relate to the experience of a hurricane coming through and the need to evacuate. In Hurricane in Paradise by Deborah Brown, not only does the main character Mad have to deal with evacuating from a storm, she also have to weather crazy things like murder, a missing brother, and all kinds of utter chaos. The setting for the book is the Florida Keys and Brown certainly knows how to imbue her story with all things Florida. With an easy, breezy style, Brown captivates with a well rounded story that features squatters who take over Mad's cottage and other seemingly impossible to deal with scenarios. Written to include an oddball cast, Brown doesn't waste words with overly descriptive passages, but keeps the pace of action fast to keep the story moving along. A fun, light, read for those who want a little bit of Florida sunshine along with murder and mayhem.
