The Paradise Affair is filled with lush descriptions of Hawaii in 1898. In fact, it feels like you are reading a travel memoir from an earlier slower-paced era. There are also two mysteries to solve for the husband and wife private detective duo, Sabina and Tom Quincannon.
Overall, I liked, but didn’t love, this entry in the series. It was a bit too easy to solve the two mysteries within The Paradise Affair. However, the setting almost made up for it. 3 stars.
Thanks to Forge Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
