The Trouble With Paradise

If you have ever worked in retail this is the book for you! Dorie Anderson, a customer service representative at Shop-Mart. Shop-Mart is basically a Wal-Mart. Dorie is sick of her job. Her boss is an ass and everyday the job just gets worse and worse. Dorie would give anything to quit the place, but as we all know there are bills to pay.

One day Dorie gets the surprise of her life. She has won a free yachting trip via Fiji. At first she thinks, "what's the catch", but luckily it's the real deal. The trip is loaded with drinks, hunks and an awesome yacht. What could be better?

Well, the vacation starts out all lovely. There are two hunks that take to Dorie real quick and she isn't sure which one she wants. One is a brooding doctor hot as sin and the other is your all American baseball player. Both would be great catches for Dorie.

The first couple of days at sea are great, but one thing is disturbing Dorie. She keeps hearing whispers that sound odd. Could someone be planning a murder or is it just her imagination that something is wrong. As the seas rise and a storm overtakes the yacht will Dorie find her man or will she be shipped out to sea?

The Trouble With Paradise was a wonderful and fun novel about a woman who has just had it with her job at Shop-Mart. Jill Shalvis did a wonderful job of making each character unique and inviting. Dorie makes some great friends. I would love to be part of their little group as they had so much fun. Ms. Shalvis showed that even during the worst of times lasting relationships can be created. Overall I loved this book because it took me on vacation to a place I've never been and it left me with the travel bug.


Book Blurb for The Trouble With Paradise

When Dorie Anderson meets a cute guy, she becomes a huge klutz. But one phone call has turned her dead-end dating life into an adventure: she's won a trip on a singles' cruise to Fiji. On board, she soon meets pro baseball player Andy, and the ship's hunky French doctor. She's sure she'll fall head-over-heels in no time. Unfortunately, she's right: soon, she trips over her luggage right in front of them. Mortifying. But a bigger disaster is just on the horizon. Dorie finds a man murdered in his bunk the same night a storm wrecks the ship, stranding everyone on a deserted shore. It'd be a perfect setting for romance-if it weren't for the fact that there's a killer among them.
