Yet another masterpiece from Tami Hoag. I have read every single book of hers...well, the ones I could find anyway, and have yet to be disappointed. This is a spine-chilling thriller, yet with a bit of humanity and romance threaded through, covering all bases and making enjoyably scary. Marilee Jennings, black sheep, innocent, naïve, needed a holiday, so who else to visit but her lively and witty friend? Only from the moment she set foot in her friend's house, she surrounded by murder, greed and pure evil. She's attacked and almost killed in her search for the truth. A beautifully crafted story, I would recommend it.

I have read all of TH's books to date and I am a huge fan but...... when is the heroine NOT going to end up with the devastatingly handsome (although always unshaven) hero?! Just for once it would be nice for the good guy to be the red herring. Then, there would be an element of the unknown to the ending at least! Other than that - once more TH has written an extremely good page turner that still keeps me waiting her next creation.

The third of Tami Hoag's books I have read (in 2 weeks, considerably hooked on her stuff), I still found this enjoyable although tough at times. I loved the characters (if only you got cowboys like JD and Will in Buckinghamshire...) and the setting and descriptions were fantastic, so much that I now want to go and live in dust in Montana somewhere. However, the going was quite tough and while the plot was interesting - certainly at the beginning - it got a bit bland during the middle. That said, I am thoroughly enjoying wading my way through Ms Hoag's books - I've found her to be a wonderful discovery on the bookshelf. Oh, and does anyone else wish Marilee had told JD what she knew at the end?! I really wanted to see how he'd react!

Time taken to read - 1 day

Imagine going to visit your friend to blow off some steam and have a little holiday only to get there and find the house is in a state and your friend is dead. That is what happens to Marilee Jennings and whilst she has been told it was an accident she can't help but digging to find out for herself just what happened.

I did like this story, it is a big thick read and goes at a decent pace. The only thing I would say is, reading the blurb you would think the whole story is centered around her friends death but actually it is almost as big as Marilee's love hate relationship with a cowboy who cares about nothing more than his ranch. The story centers around them a lot and their interactions and feelings for each other. It weaves in and out of the what happened to Lucy but I would say that Marilee's relationship with JD is the real story. There is a lot of romance and sex to the story and whilst it still has a thriller aspect to it I think if your looking for your normal fix of Tami Hoag this one might leave you wanting.

I personally enjoyed it and think it just had the right mix for a holiday read (although some may find it a bit lengthy for that), it had more romance and sex than murder but still enough to keep you entertained so 3/5 for me.

Tami Hoag has done it again. I have read several of hers, and i just love the way she combines a taut thriller with a tender love story, always.
her characterisation is nothing less than brilliant. you really FEEL for the characters. they jump of the page at you.
the stories, although the content is sometimes violent and gory (esp Ashes to Ashes) seem very possible and realistic, because of the way she writes.
these novels usually always have a very strong sense of place. no less so in DARK PARADISE. after reading this book i now desperately want to visit the seemingly beautiful Montana countryside.
the plot of this novel is simple and easy to get your head around. it isn't complicated, but you probably wont guess it....The plot fo this novel is really good, very original. I have not read anything like it before, so was very pleased.
i got through this book in two days, the time simply flew by.
This is, i think, one of her best so far.
actually, no. i cannot say which is her best, as they are all different in wonderful ways. there has nto yet been one which i haven't enjoyed immensely.
i look forward to reading CRY WOLF next.

Didnt realize when I ordered this book, I had read it some few years ago and more, that I was about frustrated with the Un-neccessary long story then, as I was this time around. It did bore me somewhat.
I have read TAMI HOAG'S books before, some ive enjoyed alot more than this one.

Perhaps this was one of her earlier books because she brings more sex into the equation, which I haven't experienced in other of her books. However, I did enjoy it and liked her characterisations and plots.
