The more she tries to find out what happened to Lucy, the more she discovers that no one is what they seem - least of all her late colleague and drinking buddy. Remember in the early 90s, when movie stars by the dozens bought big chunks of land out in Montana and North Dakota? New money and fancy rich folk set against ranchers and cowboys struggling to maintain their way of life.
The romance is believable, the chemisty between J. Hoag certainly writes it like she means it. I was roughly the same age as the heroine the year the book came out, so rather than notice that the styles have changed, it made me nostalgic for them. Other than that, I barely noticed the lack of cell phones or mp3 players. How I would have loved to have tripped over a man like that in real life. I identified strongly with Marilee. I liked her, wanted to be her, right down to her wardrobe.
Which like I said, is kinda dated, but I loved that look so much in Tami Hoag was one of my favourite authors in the early 90s. She wrote big, meaty, romantic suspense novels with really hot men in them, and women that I could identify with. Dark Paradise is one of her best.
