Blog Tour: Laying Low in Paradise by Kristy K. James

Date Published: 5/14/2013

Laura Keane and her son have been spending summers at their chalet on Bois Blanc Island since her husband was killed in the war. She never let anyone else in after the chaplain delivered the sad news four years ago, so it’s just the two of them, and she wouldn’t change it for the world.

Cameron Rafferty and his friends were keeping secrets. Dangerous secrets, and they’d hoped the little island paradise would be a safe place to hide out. The plan to keep a low profile quickly unravels when an accident changes everything. Cameron soon finds himself becoming more involved with the Keane family than he’d intended -and wishing for things he shouldn’t.

My Review

I think the overall of this book was wonderful. Sometimes it takes a little longer to get invested in the characters and that really happened here for me. You had a wounded woman who felt like she had lost her one and only love, and a man who is hiding out from something that you could not possible imagine. While the connection did finally come, it took a bit longer and made the beginning of the book seem a little slow. 

In a book where there is so much emotion, I really loved the comic relief from the boys. I always love when a single mom meets a single dad and their children get along. ; ) 

I think overall this was a sweet romance of new beginnings and overcoming things in life.


Kristy K. James' first goal in life was to work in law enforcement, until the night she called the police to check out a scary noise in her yard. Realizing that she might someday have to check out scary noises in other dark yards if she continued on that path, she turned to her other favorite love… writing. Since then, her days have been filled with being a mom and reluctant zookeeper (7 pets), creating stories and looking for trouble in her kitchen.
