Ambushed in Paradise Tour and Giveaway

The Keys is a great place to hide a seashell bucket full of secrets.

Creole…shot…dead. Three words Madison Westin never thought she’d hear in the same sentence. Creole promised. He pinky swore on it.

But even through a blur of tears fed by prescription-strength margaritas, Madison can tell when things are shady. Sure, Creole was undercover, but she deserves more than sketchy non-answers, an urn of ashes, and a secret life crawling out of the woodwork.

Nothing’s adding up, nothing that remotely sounds like the Creole she knew and loved. Calling in every one of her IOU’s—only to find some of her most reliable information sources drying up—Madison sets out to dig up what really happened to Creole. She never thought the truth would wrap its arms around her and make her wonder if she’s chasing a ghost… or taking a vacation from sanity.

Ambushed in Paradise is book #12 in the action-packed Paradise series. Come along with Madison and Fab as they dig up the truth and share more than one hair raising adventure. 

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.....

Book Excerpt

Also available in the Paradise Series


 Madison feels lost after the love of her life is killed in the line of duty. She can’t get any information on what went down, nor understand how the police department could give such a sorry excuse of a funeral for Creole. All she can count on is her best friends Fab and Didier since her family only wants to interfere and not let her process her grief on her own terms. One thing is for sure though. Madison Westin will not stop without uncovering the truth behind Creole’s death.

I felt so bad for Madison, and I couldn’t understand how her family could treat her the way they did. There was a shift in several character’s personalities, and not for the good. I predict there will be more strife ahead between Madison, brother Brad, and mother dearest, Madeline. But I do like the newest characters, and the direction Madison and Fab are taking. It will be interesting to see where it goes.

About the Author
I've been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; poetry, sappy short stories (my best friend made me swear that I’d never show anyone until I changed the names), and a romance novel shoved under my bed.

I wanted to create books with a wide-range of unforgettable characters, with heat and romance, and lots of guns. It wouldn’t be complete without a slice of humor and charm.

I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

It Is About You: How American Government Works and How to Help Fix It Review

It Is About You: How American Government Works and How to Help Fix It

By Deborah Cupples

It Is About You: How American Government Works and How to Help Fix It by [Cupples, Deborah]
A nonpartisan and plain-language guide, this book covers basics about American Government and includes a copy of the United States Constitution. 

Understanding your government will make you (1) less likely to be misled by agenda-driven politicians or media figures and (2) more likely to have a say in how government affects your life. 

The following concepts are among those covered in this book: the Rule of Law; checks and balances; separation of powers; types of laws; people’s rights and the government’s powers; the three branches of government and how they (are supposed to) function; influences on our government; ways that our government is broken; and ways that We the People can help fix it.


If you have ever needed to know how your government works, or even if you just need a refresher course on it, then this book is for you. It is broken down into categories making it an easy to ready format. I liked how each category had subcategories to help you zero in on the things you may have questions about. I didn’t realize that the executive branch, which is under the President’s control, employs over two million people, and that doesn’t even include the military. That was an eye opener for me. I learned a few other tidbits also, like it is Congress that can declare war, not the President as I had believed. And also that D.C., the District of Columbia, is not an actual state. Actually I knew that, but I didn’t know the reasoning behind it. The book mentioned and explained words that I had never heard before, like Stare Decisis and writ of certiorari.

This author was very thorough in her knowledge of the Constitution and all it entails. She didn’t just say who does what, she explained how laws are carried out. At the end of the book, she included a copy of the Constitution. I believe this book is an excellent source to include in your reference collection.
