Starfish Island by Deborah Brown & GIVEAWAY



After a bad break-up, Nicole Alexander is ready for a change. When she inherits a house on Starfish Island from a grandmother she never knew, it seems like the perfect opportunity for starting over. But soon after moving in, Nicole receives a cryptic message warning her to leave immediately. 

Determined to get to the bottom of the hauntings, Nicole starts an investigation. When things get hot and heavy with one of the island’s most charismatic residents, Michael Edwards, Nicole begins to suspect his amorous attention might be a cover for dark motives. 

Will Nicole discover the reason for the island’s hostility before it’s too late? Can she fall for a man she doesn’t exactly trust? 

STARFISH ISLAND is best-selling author Deborah Brown’s first romantic suspense novel. If you love the charm and fast pace of her popular Paradise series, then you’ll love this engrossing romantic mystery.

My Thoughts…

Ever wonder what you would do if a rich family member that you have never met left you everything?   That is exactly what happens to Nicole.    She rises to the challenge and doesn’t let anyone push her around.    Between the butler, the lawyer, the ex-boyfriend, and the sexy neighbor everyone wants something from her or wants her to take their advice.    Yet, she stands strong, finds her path, and blazes along.    Nicole is so crazy strong!    She doesn’t take crap from anyone, she doesn’t back down, and she gets out of her own way.   

Starfish Island has mystery, romance, beautiful location, wonderful characters, and so much more.     I was kept guessing as to who was causing Nicole all the problems and the whole reason why.   I found myself taking guesses and many times hoping I was wrong.    I was so surprised at the ending that I just had to stop and think about what was happening.    The ending was wonderful, perfect, and unexpected.  

This is the first book I have read by Deborah Brown.   I plan on checking out more of her books.   I recommend checking out Starfish Island.

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.

  3. Starfish Island is a great read, but there is a whole other side to Deborah Brown. She has created a whole community of quirky, fun loving, sassy and sexy folks in Tarpon Cove. You can get to know and love them by downloading Crazy in Paradise as the 1st in the "...... In Paradise" 8 book series. Go to Amazon to order the books, or as a Kindle read. Also available as Kindle Unlimited ❣
