Treasure in Paradise by Kathi Daley
A combination of local secrets, greedy land developers, devout environmentalists, moody preadolescents and TJ’s own emotional ride mixed with memories and recent relationship changes, investigating a murder seems to be the logical choice for our amateur sleuth. ~Laura’s Interests
…this book is just another great representation of Kathi’s hard work and great writing style. Tj is always ready to be kind to another person. She is just a fictional best friend to many readers, and to this reader. ~Bibliophile Reviews
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 have come to really love the authors writing. She has such an expressive way to write that makes everything come to life. Her stories are always filled with fascinating facts and I appreciate her diligence to details. I loved reading about the plight of the turtles and loved learning about them.
Tj has decided to spend her summer at Turtle Cove Resort helping her father's friend out. I love Tj so much and want to be her friend. She is someone you can trust and know she will always be there for you. Tj and her entourage pack up and head on an adventure that is exciting and action packed. The place they are staying at has an uninvited guest in the attic. Poor Tj finds a body that doesn't seem to be moving. It looks like Tj will have her hands full when the investigation starts . Why was there a body in the attic where Tj was going to be all summer?
Someone thinks there is a map that will lead them to a treasure that will make them rich. I was ready to join them as the author made the story so intriguing. How fun would it be to explore caves, and deserted land hoping to find buried treasure? Tj is suspicious when the death of the person in the attic is ruled as natural causes. Who is hiding something about the death? I love how the author gives us a great mystery with subtle clues throughout the book. Her books are always fun to read and Tj is a character that I have enjoyed getting to know. I have to mention Blackbeard the parrot. Oh my I enjoyed this bird so much. I could picture him talking away as he tried to give clues to Tj. As always the author delivers another powerful story that has interesting characters and a well written mystery that had me not wanting the book to end. I can't wait to see what is in store for Tj next.
I received a copy of this book from The Great Escapes Book Tour. The review is my honest opinion.
