Our thoughts…

The second book in the Paradise trilogy from Elin Hilderbrand is just as good as the first! You can read our review of book one here. We’re taken back to St. John again – it’s worth noting that all of the blurbs attached to this book state ‘A year ago Irene Steele had the shock of her life…’ but the book itself seems to be just three weeks since we left off from book one. Either way it doesn’t detract from the book at all but can be a little confusing if you focus on time frames.

The setting, the characters, the boat trips, the romance, the food and the underlying mystery are all there. There’s plenty of suspense, secrets and Drama from the Queen of Contemporary Fiction. It ends on a cliffhanger – so be warned that you will want to jump straight into book three!

Order the Box…

Rich with the lush beauty of the tropics and the drama, romance, and intrigue only Elin Hilderbrand can deliver, Winter in Paradise is a truly transporting novel, and the exciting start to a new series. This is book one in the series of three – but each book can be read alone! The book is packaged up in brown paper, string and a wax seal and will arrive in a box with all of our usual treats.

You can order this book from us by visiting our shop here. We also stock book one in the series here and you can pre-order book three here.

About the Book…

Secret lives and new loves emerge in the bright Caribbean sunlight . . .

A year ago, Irene Steele had the shock of her life: her loving husband, father to their grown sons and successful businessman, was killed in a plane crash. But that wasn’t Irene’s only shattering news: he’d also been leading a double life on the island of St. John, where another woman loved him, too.

Now Irene and her sons are back on St. John, determined to learn the truth about the mysterious life – and death – of a man they thought they knew. Along the way, they’re about to learn some surprising truths about their own lives, and their futures.
