About The Paradise Series

The Paradise Series is a three book trilogy set on the beautiful island of St John. Through the three books we follow Irene Steel as she recovers from a tragedy.

In book one Irene Steele’s beloved husband, away on business, has been killed in a helicopter crash. Before she can even process the news, she must first confront the perplexing details of her husband’s death on the distant Caribbean island of St. John. But there she discovers that he had been living a secret life.

The second book in the series takes place a year later. After her husband died in a helicopter crash Irene found out that he loved another woman on the island of St. John. So Irene and her sons want to learn the truth about the man they thought they knew.

Book three takes place when Irene has uprooted her life in the States, and has just settled in at the villa on St. John where her husband has been living a double life. But a visit from the FBI makes her learn how little she knows about the one she loves. With the help of friends, Irene and her sons set up their lives while evidence that her husband’s death may not have been an accident comes to light.

What Happens in Paradise (Book 2)

A year ago, Irene Steele had the shock of her life: her loving husband, father to their grown sons and successful businessman, was killed in a helicopter crash. But that wasn’t Irene’s only shattering news: he’d also been leading a double life on the island of St. John, where another woman loved him, too.

Now Irene and her sons are back on St. John, determined to learn the truth about the mysterious life—and death—of a man they thought they knew. Along the way, they’re about to learn some surprising truths about their own lives, and their futures.

Troubles In Paradise (Book 3)

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.
