Spend your winter on sunlit shores in the New York Times bestselling follow-up to Winter in Paradise, as secret lives and new loves emerge under the bright Caribbean sky. 

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.

Lush with the tropical details, romance, and drama that made Winter in Paradise a national bestseller, What Happens in Paradise is another immensely satisfying page-turner from one of America's most beloved and engaging storytellers.

    Have read all of her books, this one is the worst. Just stops so you have to read the third to get some closure on all story lines
  • No ending..... again

    By Seriouselyrhisnameisnottaken
    This book picks right up where the first in the trilogy left off. A little slow in the beginning but it picked up. You find out more in this book but just like the first one, there is no ending. This trilogy could have easily been put into one great book but is separated into 3 books which is a great ploy to sell 3 books instead of one. I wouldn’t mind that at all if you had a satisfying ending at the end of a great book. When I have read other series books by other authors, they take one or two characters from the previous book and build another story around those characters instead of the same story in 3 books, the first two without endings. By October, I will won’t care how the trilogy ends and won’t be purchasing the 3rd one.

    The lines that tie a boat are called lines not ropes.

    Sort of fun, but I had no feeling for the characters. Plot was superficial.

    The Paradise books should have been one book, definitely not two. Repetitive and predictable.
