Book Review: 'Trouble in Paradise' by Cindy Jacks


The heart has lots of room for love, but the bonds of others can make it hard to beat!
Clarissa is in a dilemma there is no doubt about that, despite living in an idyllic location and having a husband that literally sweeps her off her feet and into bed, there’s a big elephant in the room and his name is Sione.
To complicate things Sione is the husband’s cousin. Both are gorgeous, both want her, she wants both of them but there’s one small, no make that massive, problem – kids! And it’s not what you think, it’s not Clarissa’s body clock that’s making the demands!
I really enjoyed Trouble in Paradise, the author took a very sensitive issue, compounded it with the baby angle, and took the challenge head on. It’s well written, the characters are likeable and the tension and the dilemmas tangible.
I liked both heroes, and could see why Clarissa did too. The story paces along well and I certainly felt the title suited the book, it should all be perfect…but…!
If you enjoy angst and sexy men and a woman who just can’t decide then you won’t go too far wrong with this one. I’m a fan of the author as she writes in a way that I can really relate to and the fact that she doesn’t always stay ‘safe’ with plot lines is commendable.
