The Trouble with Paradise: Review

The Trouble With Paradise
by Jill Shalvis

Paperback: 304 pages
Publisher: Berkley; Reprint edition (September 7, 2010)

When Dorie Anderson meets a cute guy, she becomes a huge klutz. But one phone call has turned her dead-end dating life into an adventure: she's won a trip on a singles' cruise to Fiji. On board, she soon meets pro baseball player Andy, and the ship's hunky French doctor. She's sure she'll fall head- over-heels in no time. Unfortunately, she's right: soon, she trips over her luggage right in front of them. Mortifying. But a bigger disaster is just on the horizon. Dorie finds a man murdered in his bunk the same night a storm wrecks the ship, stranding everyone on a deserted shore. It'd be a perfect setting for romance-if it weren't for the fact that there's a killer among them.

First Line(s): Only a week ago, Dorie Anderson's nighttime fantasies had run along the lines 0f, say Matthew McConaughey, but now as she lay on the long, golden stretch of beach, staring past their shelter to the star-riddled night sky, she fantasized about chocolate chip cookies.

Favorite Line(s): Still Day One, still waiting for Ashton Kutcher to jump out and yell, "Punk'd"

My Review: This is my second novel I have read by Jill Shalvis and I am sensing a theme when it comes to her leading ladies... fun, witty and just plain adorable! This book was light and fun the whole way through. It had steamy scenese, suspense and left you wondering till the end. If you are looking for a light and fast read look no farther than The Trouble with Paradise by Jill Shalvis.

Jill Shalvis is fastly becoming a favorite of this Crazy Book Slut!

My Rating: 4 stars

Until next time...
Happy Reading!
