The second book in Elin Hildebrand's Paradise trilogy does not live up to its promise. It has the same cast of characters but Ayers' tendency to keep three men - Mick, Cash, and Baker- in suspense about whom she will choose becomes rather tiresome. The FBI search adds some suspense and once again leads to a cliffhanger. I'm all set to read the final book in the trilogy.

Enjoyable light reading.

This was heartwarming and romantic with a bit of mystery. It is a really lovely summer read.

When we last met up with the Steele family they had all returned to the United States to recuperate from the shock of dealing with (a) a dead husband/father, (b) a McMansion in St. John no one knew about, (c) a love child and (d) various potential romances.

We get some new information on this book, but we are still awaiting the closure in the series finale to come next year.

This is also pretty typical book two content. These are always what I call the “filler” books. You need additional info to move the story along, but there’s not a whole lot of real action until book three. It also would not work at all as a standalone, but it was a great middle book. Bring on #3.

I loved reading this book. It picked up where the first book, "Winter In Paradise", left off. I can hardly wait to read the 3rd book in this series, "Troubles In Paradise".

I can hardly wait for book #3. I enjoyed the first two & found myself totally lost on the island as I started reading.

The first book was enough to get me to read this one. What a "let down". It's just not a good story. I won't be reading the third book.

Would have been a great beach read. Should have saved it for that.

Can't wait for #3!

I absolutely saw this book as a sell out and will not be reading the rest of the series hate!!
