The following is an honest review of What Happens in Paradise, book 2 in the Paradise trilogy by Elin Hilderbrand, and my suggested age rating. This review may contain spoilers if you have not read Winter in Paradise.
Synopsis of What Happens in Paradise
A year has passed since Irene got the life changing news. Her husband was killed in a helicopter crash, along with his mistress. A mistress he had not just another life with but also a child. Now Irene is dealing with all of the legal ramifications of her husband’s double life back at the home they shared together. Despite all the turmoil the island of St. John has brought Irene, she can’t help feeling a pull to it and the people there. Both of her adult sons feel the same way. All three of them, without telling each other, head back to St. John, each determined to make a new life there. However, it won’t come easy and it won’t come without more secrets being unburied.
Review of What Happens in Paradise
If you haven’t read Winter in Paradise, please read no further! This book picks up right where book one left off (and a little time has passed). After book one I was eager to pick this one and book three up to see how the series would finish and I was not disappointed. I really enjoyed this book despite the fact that it seemed a little fast paced at times (in an unbelievable sort of way). Sometimes some of the characters’ decisions frustrated me, especially when they was a huge lack of communications. However, I continued to love the characters and the growth they each showed as they dealt with this massive secret which tied them all together.
I gave this book 4/5 stars on Goodreads.
Suggested Age Rating for What Happens in Paradise
This book is classified as “adult” and I would agree. Although there is minimal language and sexual content, there are a lot of adult themes. Some of them include an affair, a hidden family, drug use, alcohol…etc.
