Aloha to Kelsey Browning and PROBLEMS IN PARADISE


Kelsey Browning is celebrating the digital release of PROBLEMS IN PARADISE, Texas Nights Book 3, from Carina Press:

Eden Durant hasn't always been Eden Durant. She's made a fresh start in Shelbyville, Texas, far from her mother's notoriety. Running the Paradise Garden Café is as much excitement as Eden wants—or it was, until she meets Beck Childress. Although he's the one man who could expose her past, she's willing to open up enough to see if he might be her future.

Chief Deputy Childress is determined to get to know the real Eden, when he isn't busy cleaning up after the sheriff and running in the election to replace him. When several men fall sick after eating in Eden's café, he investigates even as her mysterious past raises both his suspicions and his protective instincts.

As their relationship heats up, so do the pressures of Beck's campaign. When Eden's secrets are revealed, jeopardizing his dream of becoming sheriff, he'll need to choose: serve and protect the town he loves or the woman who makes it home.

  1. Kim -

    Just wanted to pop in and say thanks so much for hosting me on SOS Aloha today!

    1. Danielle - most people from outside the state love San Antonio or Austin. Lots of other great places--I'm especially fond of the hill country--but those seem to be big tourist draws. Hope you make it one day!


  3. Not yet.. But would love to!

    1. May - I mentioned some bigger cities to Danielle above. But if you're ever looking for a smaller town to visit, I would recommend these: Salado, Wimberly, Marble Falls, Boerne (pronounced Bernie), Gruene (pronounced Green). There are tons more. Really makes me homesick!

      Thanks for popping in.

  4. I have two aunts that have lived in Houston and Son Antonio and we used to drive down there almost every summer :) Have great memories of the the Lone Star State!!! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Erin - that's great to hear. I've lived in both Houston and San Antonio - love them both but for different reasons!

    1. Catslady - hope you get a chance some day. But don't go in the summer if you don't like 100 degree+ heat! ;-)


  6. I have never visited but I hope to someday.

  7. I've lived in Texas since 1997. Still can't get used to the summers and waking up to it being 80 at 7AM. I love San Antonio - The Alamo, the Riverwalk, the great food!
