    The best did not want it to end Will return later with full review.While you re waiting go read the first book in the series, it ll be a better reading experience if you did Winter in Paradise Here s a teaser No Spoilers below When we last left the Steele family they had all returned to the States but in a few months time each was privately thinking how to get back to St John, stat Ayers, Maia, and Huck, thousands of miles away, were each thinking of the members of the Steele family The best did not want it to end Will return later with full review.While you re waiting go read the first book in the series, it ll be a better reading experience if you did Winter in Paradise Here s a teaser No Spoilers below When we last left the Steele family they had all returned to the States but in a few months time each was privately thinking how to get back to St John, stat Ayers, Maia, and Huck, thousands of miles away, were each thinking of the members of the Steele family wondering if they d ever see them again A big plus, we get to know some of Rosie s thoughts, but can t tell you how Agent Vasco returns So good I ve read it twice

    This was an easy read with a fairly predictable cliff hanger ending but that didn t stop me from enjoying it A word of caution, though the story continues where Winter in Paradise left off and there are very few backstories as to what happened in the previous book and who is who If you can wait until the third book is published next year, binge by reading all three in one sitting Thanks to the publisher for the advance digital reading copy To be published October 2019.

    Last year I listened to the audiobook, Winter in Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand I was forcing myself to branch out of my normal thriller horror genre I thoroughly enjoyed Winter in Paradise and could not wait for the second book in this chick lit trilogy, What Happens in Paradise You could read this book as a standalone but I really do not recommend it What Happens in Paradise picks up right where we left our characters at the ending of the first in this trilogy Irene is struggling Last year I listened to the audiobook, Winter in Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand I was forcing myself to branch out of my normal thriller horror genre I thoroughly enjoyed Winter in Paradise and could not wait for the second book in this chick lit trilogy, What Happens in Paradise You could read this book as a standalone but I really do not recommend it What Happens in Paradise picks up right where we left our characters at the ending of the first in this trilogy Irene is struggling to understand her husband s death, her fresh feelings for Huck, and her new life on the island Cash has decided to start over on the island, accepting a new position on a snorkeling boat Baker, in the midst of divorcing his wife, has similarly decided to return to St John Both men are hopeful of a new relationship with the island s most sought out bachelorette, Ayers Wilson The conclusion of the book leaves you guessing and wantingout of these characters I really love Hilderbrand s writing style She seems to be able to construct a storyline that captivates me when most authors would bore me writing of the same subjects The characters are not always loveable, I am looking at you Baker and Ayers, but they are always real I was able to read What Happens in Paradise in three days and I really wished I had paced myself This book helps build the characters and their relationships better and, presents us with glimpses of characters that were not directly in the first volume I really do recommend this series to many patrons that come to the library because I enjoyed it so much I hope Mrs Hilderbrand does not make us wait too long for the conclusion Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for the prepublished eBook
