Trouble in Paradise is the third book in an excellent series by Deborah Brown - Paradise Series, it's all kicking off in the Keys, Madison and buddies are knee deep in trouble and have iou's to the big hitters in the area. How much trouble one lady can land herself in as well as trying to help her friends is unbelievable. The whole team has to give everything if they are all to survive.This novel is full of excitement, sexual tension and romances and superbly backed up with humorous quips. The characters have grown into a very moulded group and their traits shine through.Another very easy but enthralling read and a lot more going on, odd jobs for the local don, problems of trying to evict troublesome residents and also solve the mystery of a man floating in the local waters. The women will love the hunks with their dark sides and overprotective nature, with the female characters trying to prove they can live and survive without them, which adds a touch of feminism to the story. The fast cars, the gun tottering and dodgy characters embellished in a warm weather climate makes a rip roaring read.See what else Beck Valley Books had to say athttp://beckvalleybooks.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/book-review-trouble-i...
What a book!! This will bring out your deepest thoughts, stirring them up and making your heart burst. It will open your eyes to the dark world that many people suffer from whether it be alcohol / drug abuse, child abuse, mental illness and more. On top of which comes the most cutest, loveable little girl, Quinn and her loving father Brett, who will melt your heart.
There's a predator on the loose with one mission on his mind - to rid the local area of pedophiles, to keep the children in the area safe so they don't have to undergo the same torturous childhood that he had gone through. How does he do this and what body parts does he hide in the geocaching sites? You will have to read the book but be prepared for some 'coarse' words here and there, bringing out the true flavour of the mystery.
Officer Brett Reed, Quinn's father, along with his partner Clay try to track down the predator. Yet Brett has worse problems to deal with much closer to home. His addict of a wife sinks lower into despair whilst having custody of their only daughter Quinn. His daughter is found in the street on her own and is taken into protective care. You would think it would be a straight forward handing over to the father but no, it turns out to be the worst thing that could have happened.
Cache a Predator by Michelle Weidenbenner shows how years of child cruelty can affect those in later life and how the suffering is passed on to their loved ones. Personally it made me really think about how unfair the legal system is, and in this case how ludicrous it is when dealing with the custody of children towards fathers, it also brings to light frightening potential flaws in trusted protective services that will make may your skin crawl.
Get ready for the story twists, unexpected moments, the holding of breath and the emotional grab of this brilliant thriller, you won't want to put this one down !!

Our Beck Valley Books Review of Welcome to the World! Book and Coloring Book by Kanta Bosniak, Author 'Kanta's soft and gentle tone with words are used carefully to reflect their true meaning' ......
Our Book Review on Welcome to the World Book"I always thoroughly look forward to reading Kanta Bosniak's insightful words in her books. They speak to the heart and mind so clearly that I find that I could read them over and over again. You simply feel the understanding and positivity jump off the pages as you read them.
Talk about melting your heart, I wish I had this book through both of my pregnancies and while they were both small enough to plant seeds of thought. The idea of passing on positive thoughts and teaching to your unborn child fills your heart with warmth and happiness.
Kanta's soft and gentle tone with words are used carefully to reflect their true meaning to guide a child's spiritual journey into happiness to be carried on into adulthood. A lesson many adults have failed to do. The words are passed on to your child to nourish deeply and their inner thoughts may have a chance against life's obstacles.
I really like how the author uses the book to explain to the young about inside thoughts and those that we speak and how these can have an effect on people. I love the use of the happy buttons, a tool that people of all ages can do. There is also a good simple insight at a young age as to why others are sad.
A very easy and enjoyable read as a parent, parent to be or on your own. Be prepared to smile your way through this book."
Our Book Review on Welcome to the World Book Coloring Book"The coloring book forms a reminder to children and adults alike that they are loved and how happiness can surround them,
Simple words, quotes and drawings from Kanta's free flowing hand are carefully used to teach children, in a simple way, about their own feelings and that of others and also how they can find inner happiness.
As an adult, flicking through the pages made me smile at the trigger messages given out and I am looking forward to starting to coloring them in."

After the Fog by Kathleen Shoop 'Kathleen Shoop hypnotises readers with her words bringing the story to life in such an encapturing way that it is so hard to put the book down.' reviews Beck Valley Books
In the mill town of Donora lives Rose and her dysfunctional family. Rose is a nurse who strives to ensure that her community is looked after, nursing is her life but with the worry that their funding is running out hanging over her head. After growing up in an orphanage Rose is adamant that her children will have the best that live can give, that is her mission, her focus in life. Although things don't go according to plan for Rose, her control to ensure they get away from Donora has become questioned and betrayed is how she now feels. What her family are not aware of is why Rose is the way she is, the deep hidden secrets and hurt she hides away.The background of the family structure and the plight of the mill workers and families make you feel that you have become absorbed into the era and the story. She brings the characters into the hearts and minds of the reader, the nice ones and even the not so nice ones, Although I was caught out by the twist to the story.People in Donora are proud of their industrial background, the mills are a way of life to them and they owe the mills for giving them jobs to be able to provide for their families. Living in the constant noise, smell, hardship and worry that their loved ones might be injured or worse at work is just the norm to them, let alone the never ending fog that surrounds the village.I know the book was based around the real tragic events for the local Donora residents but even so you would still have been easily taken in by the story. The tragedy of the killing smog and the sad loss of lives and those who suffered illnesses was handled in a considerate way, it become clear that the author had put a lot of care and research into the story and I feel has done the Donora people proud.Following on from such a traumatic event, is hard for everyone, especially Rose and my heart did go out to her. There were a lot of similarities between myself and Rose, especially a current one with my son and his education which made me smile as I had the same realisation as Rose did in the end.A nice ending to a realistic and gritty tale and I am one seriously hooked fan and that's just after reading two of her books, I cannot wait to read the next, in fact I need it right now!!
