If you are as much of a Halloween addict as I am, if you enjoy reading about small towns and the true charcters who live there, you want to grab Pumpkins in Paradise and find a corner to curl up in. As you read you will find yourself in the middle of the action.

TJ Jensen lives with her Father and Grandfather at a resort owned by the family. Her mother recently died and TJ inherited two young step sisters. Luckily TJ has a best friend with daughters around the same age to help smooth the transition.

TJ is a Halloween nut, and what is better than to enjoy a favorite holiday with children? It makes it easier to act like a child yourself.

Halloween is also the anniversary of a special friendship for TJ.
An unlikely friendship that lasted for many years, until one day shortly before Halloween, she went to visit and found her good friend dead.
While the police wanted to close the case quickly, their finding of "suicide" did not sit well with TJ.
So she adds to her already full schedule the task of finding out the truth.

I enjoyed the setting and the characters and solving puzzles which occur throughout the book. There is not just the ONE mystery to be solved.
This is a gentle, friendly read but it also has tense moments.
I found it suitable for readers of all ages.

HASH(0xa0341048) out of 5 stars It's Got It All 14 Oct. 2013
By A. Brantley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Pumpkins in Paradise by Kathi Daley is an excellent fall read. From the first page I found myself sucked into the novel and hated any time I had to do something besides read. It's got all the elements of a wonderful cozy mystery - animals, loveable characters, and a mystery that is so emotional you can't help but feel like you're part of the story. Of course, that boils down to Daley's amazing writing skills. What's better is that while you may pick up on a couple things along the way, you'll still be shocked at the end. I can't wait to read more about Tj Jensen.

Enjoyed the characters, the setting, the twists - plenty of clues and red herrings to keep me guessing. Good depth of character - Tj is especially easy to connect with, believable, well-rounded and someone I look forward to getting to know.

HASH(0xa1f047ec) out of 5 stars What a Wonderful New Series! 9 Oct. 2013
By Chloegirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I just finished reading this new series by Kathi Daley which I came upon quite by accident. What a wonderful surprise! The main character, Tj (not quite sure how to pronounce this) is a young woman teaching & coaching all sorts of sports at the local high school in a little town called Serenity. When her estranged mother is killed in a car accident Tj takes on guardianship of her two young sisters. She moves back into the family resort, Maggie's Hideway, for support from her dad & grandfather. In between all her other responsibilities, she finds time to form a friendship with the town's elderly, wealthy recluse. Friends since Tj was a 14 year sneaking onto his property on Halloween on a dare, the two have grown close with Zachary challenging the young girl with math & logic puzzles.

All this comes to an end when Tj comes for a visit to find Zachary dead in his chair. The local police, including brand new deputy Dylan, believe this to be a natural death of an elderly man. Tj is not satisfied & pushes all to dig deeper as something just doesn't sit quite right about the whole set up. Enter in 4 new people visiting the resort under mysterious circumstances & Tj sets out to find the truth about the life & death of her cherished friend.

The characters are well developed & the settings so real I wanted to either move to Serenity or at the very least make reservations for a 2 week, okay maybe 4 week stay at Maggie's Hideway. This a delightful book to read, especially since it takes place at this time of year, just before Halloween. I can't wait for book 2: Snowmen in Paradise due out in Feb. 2014 & book 3: Bikini's in Paradise due out in June 2014!

HASH(0xa19bc7bc) out of 5 stars Wish I could check into the inn 10 Oct. 2013
By RLT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If I could find this place on a map I would go there for vacation. Reminds me of the town I grew up in before it got so full of tourists. A small lake town where everyone knows everyone. Good people and not so good people. Mountain beauty and the bright lights of a casino. Tj gets caught up in an investigation when she finds her old friend dead. The police want to close the case but she sees murder. She knows her friend to well.

HASH(0xa19bc8a0) out of 5 stars Paradise Lake is Drowning in Cliches 5 Feb. 2014
By The Troll Under the Bridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I wanted to like this book more than I did. I don't set out to dislike any book. I finished this one in hopes that the author would gain greater skills as a writer as she went along. This was not the case. Where do I begin my criticisms?

Too many characters. Every time she turned around, the main character was finding someone else she had a close relationship with. I gave up trying to figure out who was who. There was no way the author could balance all these characters. I was right. They all jumbled together.

The characters and their situations in life were pulled from one cliched circumstance after another. The main character is left raising her sisters after her mother dies. And, how many mothers did she have? The first one deserted her when she was a small child. The one that died unexpectedly, was she the original mother? I think she was. But, the relationships got to be too convoluted very quickly in the book. I stopped caring who was who after maybe three or four chapters.

No character has distinguishing characteristics to separate one from another. And, without a unique personality, the reader is left holding the bag as far as there being any character development going on.

When the murderer is exposed, all we get is a name. No reason. No explanation of the circumstances. Just the name. And, because there were SO many characters in the book, the name was just a name. I could not remember who it was or what the relationship to the murder victim there was. For a murder mystery, this is an unpardonable sin.

This author needs to seriously examine her storytelling ability. If she cannot write a book that keeps the reader interested and questioning character motivations then she is no writer in my book.
