Review of Treasure in Paradise


Treasure In Paradise

Tj Jensen Mystery, Book #7

Kathi Daley

5 Stars


“Daley’s characters come to life on the page. Her novels are filled with a little mystery and a little romance which makes for a murderous adventure.” – Tonya Kappes, USA Today Bestselling Author of Fixin’ To Die

Tj Jensen and her family head to Turtle Cove Resort for summer vacation, but their plans for rest and relaxation are thwarted when they find a dead treasure hunter in the attic of the resort’s main house. Initially vowing not to get involved, Tj quickly changes her tune when the Gull Island deputy on the case closes it after a bare bones investigation. All evidence points to foul play, and Tj’s determined to uncover what the deputy wants to keep hidden. With the help of her best friend and a chatty parrot, Tj digs up a centuries old legend, a hidden map, and secrets buried deeper than pirate’s treasure.

“I’m a huge fan of Kathi’s books. I think I’ve read every one. Without a doubt, she’s a gifted cozy mystery author and I eagerly await each new release!” – Dianne Harman, Author of the High Desert Cozy Mysteries

Part of the Henery Press Mystery Series Collection, if you like one, you’ll probably like them all…  (Goodreads)


The characters are well rounded and three dimensional.  Tj is  a loyal friend, persistent, and she cannot leave a mystery unsolved.  Kyle is a wonderful friend and is very happy to help Tj and her sisters anyway he can.  It was nice spending time with TJ, Kyle and her sisters and some of the other characters that I have met from this series. I really enjoyed getting to meet Blackbeard and he added a lot to the story.  The author is very talented in her character development and as usual, she created characters that I would like to know in real life. I felt like I would like to visit Gull Island to spend time with the residents.  

The mystery is carried on well throughout the entire book.  There were enough suspects to consider and clues to sift through that I was not sure who the killer was until it was revealed at the end.   And there is a second mystery, whether or not there is really a treasure buried on the island, and if so, where it is at.  As usual, the author intertwines a couple of mysteries to create even more suspense.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  If this a new to you series, you can read this without getting confused.  And if you are are regular to the series, this book is a great edition.

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.  I would like to thank NetGalley and Henery Press for the opportunity to read and review this book.
