Why I love it

It’s officially fall, which means it’s time for another breezy installment in the Paradise series. If you’re one of the loyal Hilderbrandies (do her fans have a name yet? Well, they do now.) patiently waiting to find out how this trilogy wraps, don’t neglect to add this final outing with Huck, Irene, Ayers, and the gang to your box this month.

When we last left our worthy heroes on St. John, they were forging friendships, occasionally indulging in love triangles, and trying to solve the mystery of that helicopter accident / possible instance of foul play. (If you’re new to the series, check out the first book and the second to get caught up.) Now at last, we have the satisfying conclusion in which secrets will out, lies will be laid bare, and soul mates will finally find each other.

We’re hard-pressed to come up with a better binge read than this pleasing story featuring flawed yet lovable characters wrapped in a picturesque escape to, well, paradise. Cheers!

Synopsis

After uprooting her life in the States, Irene Steele has just settled in at the villa on St. John where her husband Russ had been living a double life. But a visit from the FBI shakes her foundations, and Irene once again learns just how little she knew about the man she loved.

With help from their friends, Irene and her sons set up their lives while evidence mounts that the helicopter crash that killed Russ may not have been an accident. Meanwhile, the island watches this drama unfold—including the driver of a Jeep with tinted windows who seems to be shadowing the Steele family.

As a storm gathers strength in the Atlantic, surprises are in store for the Steeles: help from a mysterious source, and a new beginning in the paradise that has become their home. At last all will be revealed about the secrets and lies that brought Irene and her sons to St. John—and the truth that transformed them all.
