Valentine's Is Murder McKinley Mystery Series Blog Tour + Giveaway

Trouble Brewing in Paradise

 
“Not sure if I have ever laughed as much reading as I have with this one. This book will take you through laughter, mystery and intrigue. It gives you a little romance. And enough to keep you reading and wanting more. This is a page turner! If you haven’t read it yet, you are really missing out!”
–Stormy Nights Reviewing
Cupid’s bow has struck, but did it miss its mark?
Sean and Sara’s friend Jimmy has found love, and decides to sweep his female companion off her feet to Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Nothing like paradise for a romantic getaway, but the magic of the island only holds for so long. Jimmy goes missing and leaves behind his confused girlfriend who starts questioning if he left her intentionally. Sean and Sara have questions, too, but it’s not about Jimmy’s intentions. After all, this woman is new to them and they know so little about her. Is she somehow behind Jimmy’s disappearance?
The McKinleys set off to the island to find their friend and follow the first clue they get: a gold coin. This leads Sean and Sara to speculate about the involvement of pirates, but what would their motive be?
It’s only with a little help from back home that the pieces eventually start coming together. And it’s a good thing, too, because there’s no time to spare!

Book Overview:
Cupid's arrow may have missed its mark…
Jimmy finally takes a vacation--and a chance on love--only to be abducted. His female companion originally thinks he had cold feet about their relationship, but Sean and Sara know there’s more to it. Jimmy isn’t the type to just up and disappear, let alone leave a lady stranded.
Setting out on their private jet, Sean and Sara reach the tropical paradise of Ocho Rios, Jamaica with sightseeing as the last thing on their minds.
With a gold coin being their initial tie to Jimmy’s kidnapper, Sean and Sara even speculate about the involvement of pirates. Yet as the hours pass, and there’s no word from Jimmy’s captors, Sean and Sara will need to figure out the real motive before it’s too late.
With help from their friend, Adam, back in Albany, the pieces come together and not a moment too soon.

                  My Review: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This story blew me away.  I loved everything about it. The characters , the storyline, the romance, mystery, murder and twists and turns I did see coming. This is one that tops the cake.

Sarah and Sean are now investigators and will be having their one year anniversary soon. What more fun could you have a anniversary then on a island Jamica. A place I always dreamed about going to and thanks to this story I was able to imagine Jamica it was wonderful. Friends of Sean and Sarah come with them they have both been divorced and they didn't think they can fall in love again. Then something happens to there friend Jimmy and Sean and Sarah are there to investigate to help find there friends kidnapper. Wi they be able to find them before it's too late?

A wonderful story that definitely needs to be read by cozy mystery fans. A very fast paced book and wonderful read. Highly recommend and highly recommend to start with the first book in the series.

All reviews are 100% my own.
