They’re going to party like it’s 1885.

Mira Walker is hoping that competing on a “living history” reality show will give her what’s missing from her real life. Maybe she’ll get closer to her boyfriend, who hasn’t been all that nice to her lately. Get fired up about her job again. Who knows, she might even win a million dollars.

Gabe Kincaid and his brother Alec are after that million too, though. Mira and Scott are no threat at all, not when everybody involved is going to want to kill Scott after the first day. And there’s no bond stronger than a twin’s. What could possibly go wrong? 

Mira Walker and her boyfriend, Scott Mitchell  arrive in Idaho to participate in a Survivor-type reality TV show –America Live, set in 1885 – which places competing teams on homesteads where they have to live 1880s –style, clothed in the fashion from that period. The grand price is one million dollars. Gabe Kincaid and his brother Alec are also there for the million dollars. The cast of contestants includes the sexy guys – Gabe and his twin Alec, the villain, the airheads and the know-it-alls, among others.

Mira starts out as an insecure young woman, the only daughter of disinterested parents who make it clear that she would never be good enough and Scott has borrowed a page from that playbook, treating her badly too.

Gabe is immediately attracted to Mira the first time he sets eyes on her, an attraction that grows when they end up on the same team living closely together. Their relationship blossoms over the course of several months – a slow burn that builds up to the big finale. Gabe was soooo tender and protective, treating Mira like a priceless treasure in contrast to Scott’s poor treatment of her.

Mira had already been having misgivings about Scott and participating in the show only highlighted them and made her realize that he treated her poorly because she accepted it. It was a delight watching her confidence grow and having her stand up to Scott and finally kick him to the curb.

The side story of competing in a reality show was very enjoyable as was the cast of supporting characters. The descriptions and details added to the fun of the story.

Welcome to Paradise is a sweet, feel-good love story; one that can be read over and over again and leaves me feeling warm and snug and wanting more every single time I read it.

About Rosalind James

Rosalind James, a publishing industry veteran and former marketing executive, is the author of eleven Contemporary Romance and Romantic Suspense novels, six of which have reached the Top 100 on Amazon.

She and her husband live in Berkeley, California with a Labrador Retriever named Charlie (yes, she named a character after her dog, but she swears she didn't realize it until later) and three extremely spoiled, non-egg-laying bantam chickens. Rosalind attributes her surprising success to the fact that "lots of people would like to escape to New Zealand! I know I did!" Yes, all the books work as stand-alones!
