Blown Up In Paradise by Deborah Brown-Beck Valley Tour- Rrview/Giveaway

About the book 
I’ve come a long way since inheriting my Aunt Elizabeth’s Tarpon Cove house and her beach cottages full of quirky residents. I strap a Glock to my thigh as easily as I slip into flip-flops.

Even Fab is going legit… mostly. When she’s hired to investigate some high-end boat thefts in Biscayne Bay, I go along to do what I do best. Chat up the help to get the real story.

Neither of us expected the case to explode—literally—and take out one of Miami’s richest men. And possibly a mistress, though no one’s found her body floating among the bits and pieces.

Somewhere in the Miami upper-crust’s phony smiles and even phonier alibis there’s someone who wanted to see Marshall Sacks dead. Someone willing to ruin Fab’s and my lives to keep their secret. It’ll take calling in every favor I’m owed to keep us out of trouble.

And I thought 
I am loving this series.  Even though I got in at book 12 and this 
one is #14 the characters drew me and won't let go! 
This is a great series to start.  Don't worry if you can't start at book 1.  Check this one out and then back track it's worth it. 

There are a lot of sub characters in the story since Madison is the owner of a Cottage/Apartment Building she inherited from her aunt.  The residents are quirky and funny.  And then there are short term renters that add more quirkiness and cause trouble.  

Her best friend and partner Fab who is a P.I.  has lots of interesting 
cases that have lots of crazy and sometime strange characters. 
In Blown Up In Paradise Fab is called on to investigate the 
death of a wealthy local.  Madison as her assistant helps dig up the truth.  

Along with Madison and Fab their boyfriends decide they have to help to keep the girls out of trouble and keep them safe. 
They tend to break a few rules from time to time and make a few 
people mad. 

Jobs come if for Fab almost daily even while they are on one case another pops up.  This time an elderly man living near them has lost his dog.  Sadly as soon as they start investigating the find a dognapping ring located in the area.  They waste no time shutting it down.  

Madison and Fab are all about helping out the down trodden and making things right when the can.  

Among the colorful characters are Madisons family. Her mom, step father, her brother Brad and a younger brother Liam.  They are always into some kind of trouble as well and keep Madison on her toes. 

The Paradise Cove is a great Cozy Series with some thrill and suspense and lots and lots of humor. 
A great clean read.  No language and no bedroom scenes. 
Deborah Brown in just two books has become a favorite.  I can't wait to read the next one!

I received a complimentary copy.
My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.

The cover
I have to add the cover doesn't in my opinion give anything away about the book or story line.  
I am a cover junkie.  This cover didn't do anything for me and based on it I probably would have passed it up.  Except that I would have notice the title and author and checked it out.  
 The plot is about a wealthy local that gets Blown Up along with his yacht.  Madison and Fab are hired
to investigate.  There isn't anything about girls on the beach except for the occasional afternoon off for Madison and her boyfriend Creole.  Would a blowing up boat been a better cover?
