This is a strong yet simple story of a mystery, adventure and romance on a small tropical island off the coast of Queensland. It sweeps along in a very believable modern setting but the real strength of the novel is in the wonderfully rich cast of characters who make up this new world Meagan chances into. Here are people to make you laugh, to engage you in their isolated world, but above all they are people to believe and to care about.
Paradise Landing is a damned good entertaining yarn told with Alene Ivey’s usual skill. Buy it and enjoy.
I really enjoyed Paradise Landing. It’s not just a terrific crime story, it’s also a moving story about community, family, love and friendship. Alene has created a wonderful island setting, populated it with a cast of unique characters and thrown world-weary journalist Megan headfirst into it. Why don’t you join her? It’s a great read.
