I always struggle when I get the the review part of reading A Madeline Dawkins Mystery. Not for lack of good things to be said, rather I often feel like I fail to fully express how wonderful these novels are. The Trouble With Paradise, book number four of the series, is no exception to the rule. Cynthia Hamilton really has a knack for writing engaging mysteries with plenty of plot twists to keep the reader on their toes. I adore how I never find myself bored with the novel, or frankly never seem to figure things out quite like I expect them to. I love that I get to the end and always have a wonderful surprise as far as the finale of the cases goes.
In The Trouble With Paradise finds our favorite sassy and headstrong PI, Madeline working together again with Mike to try and solve the deaths of two different men. Both are husbands and leave family and friends behind that question the reasoning behind their deaths. Of course nothing is quite as it seems from the outside looking in and new things are discovered every step of the way. I was once again reading well past that ‘just a few chapters before bed’ limit, and well into the night so I could find out what was going to be the climax. It of course did not disappoint. Now the real struggle begins while I wait for the next Cynthia Hamilton book to be released!
