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:
This is a beautiful story about past regrets, loss, and overcoming everything to start new. Laura is broken after the loss of her husband and has no intention of falling in love again, nor does she think it is possible. But when she finds someone who can relate to her own feelings and she feels drawn to him and their shared loss, she can't help but start to fall for him. Plus there is the added connection/friendship of their children, which really helps to lighten the mood. 

This love story is equal parts sweet, sad, and heartwarming. It definitely has that fairytale type of perfect romance feel, even with the fact that they both lost a spouse. 


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.
