Laying Low In Paradise
Kristy K. James


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 that 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~

Laura lost her husband Jake in the war.  Laura's son Sam is her beautiful piece of Jake that she has left.  The relationship of mother and son is protective, loving and honest.
Sam is a 12 year old boy with an old soul.  He is one of the smartest young boy ever.

Every summer the family would vacation at the Chalet on Bois Blanc Island.  Little does Laura and Sam know, this summer will be the most unexpected summer ever.

Laura will meet Cameron Rafferty.  Laura has no idea as to why Cameron is there other than vacationing.  As they get to know one another feelings develop.  Even though  Cameron is not supposed to be interacting with any one on the island.  Cameron is so drawn to Laura and likes Sam, he just can stay away.
Cameron has big problems with his present situation.  One being his son Brendan.  This will come to light and Sam plays a huge role in it.

Eventually Cameron knows he will have to reveal his dangerous secret to Laura. His biggest is fear is that he will lose her.  Will Laura be able to handle Cameron's secret?

I ABSOLUTELY loved this book!
I fell in love with every well written character and each ones charm.
I finished the book in a day and would of finished in hours if I wasn't so busy with my family.
Kristy had me swooning over Cameron's words to Laura.  I have to say, Cameron stole my heart as well.  I will be adding him to my book boyfriend list. LOL!
This is a must read!
I give this book


  1. Thanks so much for the great review of Laying Low in Paradise! I'm so glad you love Cameron, too...though for me it's a tie between him, Finley, Nolan...and even Sam and Brendan (in other words, I love all the guys in the story). But Cameron is my favorite - mostly. I wouldn't be able to choose between the 3 adult males. :)

    Thanks again,

  2. You are so very welcome! Great book! I agree. All the men in this book were pretty fantastic.;)
