Welcome to Tarpon Cove.

Dying in the Middle of Summer is Sweaty Business... My first clue that something is rotten in paradise? Not the off-beat people of Tarpon Cove who attend my Aunt Elizabeth's funeral. It's the executor of her estate, a lawyer who's shadier than a Florida Keys mangrove thicket at midnight.

The second clue that I've inherited something more than a Key West-style home and a cluster of quaint, seaside rental cottages? The hot, hunky guy I find lounging by the pool--with a bullet in his shoulder. Just the kind of bad boy I shouldn't want.

Apparently,Aunt Elizabeth collected more than seashells and sand dollars.

Elizabeth's beach-town besties--a sexy P.I., Glock-rocking backup, and The Cottages' motley crew of drunks, ex-cons, and fugitives-- And I'm going to need every one of them, plus a crash course in blackmail, mayhem, and maybe murder, to keep from getting swindled out of my legacy. 
 
Excerpt:

Zach turned to me. "Can I stay?"

I nodded, trying hard not to stare at his bare chest and broad shoulders. Call me crazy, but I was looking to having him as a house guest, a diversion from the sadness.

"You did a good job at the funeral getting rid of everyone," Doc Rivers said to me, giving me the once over. "Elizabeth was proud of you.She left you a lot. Try not to screw anything up." Doc hugged me."Liz and I were the best of friends. Call me if you nee anything. I better not have to come back here." He glared at Zach, then left through the same gate he entered.

Now What? I asked myself. "Zach?" I sat down again next to him on the chaise. He opened his eyes, hooked his arm around my neck, wound his fingers in my hair and pulled me into a kiss. "Lightning shot through my body."Zach, stop," I murmured, though stopping was the last thing I wanted. " I was thinking about what it would be like to have sex with him right here on the chaise.

"No. I'll recover faster."

"You can't sleep out here on the patio," I said between kisses. A small moan escaped my lips, embarrassing me. I pushed away slightly. "That guest room bed will be much more comfortable."

"Can I sleep with you?"

"No, and behave yourself, or I'll call your mother."

"Good threat," he laughed. "I'm a grown man and she still scares me sometimes. This is one of those situations she definitely wouldn't like."

"Sit up. We're going to get you upstairs while you're high on drugs. Lean against me, and I'll help you up the stairs."

He got up slowly off the chaise. I put my arm around his waist and guided him into the house and upstairs.


"The first door on the right." I pointed.

"Where's your bedroom?"

"I'll be across the hall."

I helped him into the bedroom and, while I pulled the comforter off and the sheets down, I realized Zach was still fully dressed.

He saw me looking at him and seemed to read my thoughts. "Take my clothes off."

"Are you out of your mind?"

"You might've said yes," he said.

"Whatever." I knelt down and removed his black boots, and pulled off his socks. "You're on your own with the jeans. You can sleep in them for all I care." I peeled off the pieces of what was left of his shirt."When I ago out tomorrow I'll get you another sort."

"That door goes into the bathroom," I pointed. "If you need anything, yell."

"Damn doctor. I didn't want the sedative, and how I can't keep my eyes open. Thanks for letting me stay. I'll be leaving in the morning."

"No you won't. You promised Doc Rivers," I reminded him. "You leave and I'll tell. Besides it'll give you plenty of time to tell me how you knew Elizabeth, and why she would've helped you." I gave him a soft shove as he sat back on the bed. "Now take your pants off and get into bed," I told him.

About the Author:

Crazy in Paradise, is Deborah Brown's debut novel, a Florida Keys mystery, which makes the reader laugh, cry and cheer... She is an award-winning author who writes humorous mysteries. The perfect read for the beach or in front of the fireplace.

My personal ad would read:

There's nothing a new pair of shoes can't cure.

Redhead. 
 
Long legs. 
 
There's nothing like a strawberry-lemonade in summer.Favorite activity: Filling her pockets with seashells. An avid rule follower when eating Animal Cookies: Broken ones get eaten first, match up the rest,duplicates next, line them up favorite to not, least favorite go first.  

South Florida is her home, with my ungrateful rescue cats, and where Mother Nature takes out her bad attitude in the form of hurricanes.
