This is a fun series by Kathi Daley. Tj is a fun character and I enjoyed her adventure on Gull Island. When she stumbles across a dead body, Tj can't help but investigate. A parrot named Blackbeard, treasure maps and pirate stories will keep you guessing until the end. This is my favorite series by this author. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book provided by the publisher and NetGalley.

It is difficult to name a favorite series by Kathi Daley but TJ Jensen and friends is always at the very top of the list for me. I love the interaction between the characters. It is a wholesome, multigenerational series.

This time TJ agrees to watch over resort renovations for a friend of her father. Having grown up in a resort setting, she is the perfect person for this task. Even better, she brings along family, friends and pets for this extended stay. Also, we meet a most remarkable parrot nam

This is the seventh book in the Tj Jensen Paradise Lake Mysteries series and is an excellent read. The characters are likeable and realistic. The storyline and characters are well developed and the story flows along at a steady pace. I was captivated by this intriguing mystery from the first page until the end and had no idea who was behind everything. Even though this book is part of a series, Ms. Daley provides sufficient character background so that it can be read as a standalone. This cozy s ...more

First I wanted to go and stay at the picturesque place, and chuckled as the group unloaded to go into their lodging, people, dogs and cats, and they soon add a parrot.
Tj’s friend needs help and since her Dad can’t come she is there to lend a hand with what to do with the resort. Of course we know that this is a murder mystery, and soon we find that there is a body in the attic, but why are the police calling natural causes.

TJ is back and her fans are in Paradise! Huzzah! She and her family are taking a vacation and she is looking forward to a little peace and quiet. (Insert evil movie villain laugh here.) Yeah. We know that's not going to happen! But no cozy reader expects that to happen - and, truth be told, no self-respecting cozy reader wants it to happen!

So, the discovery of a dead treasure hunter in the main lodge leads to old legends, treasure maps, and even the quintessential pirate's bird - a talking parro

I loved this book, as I do with any Kathi Daley book. T.J. with her family and friends are on Turtle Island. T.J. is overseeing the renovation of her father's friend's resort since he is trying to recover from a stroke. T.J. is not expecting to be thrown into an investigation when she finds a dead body in the attic. Between investigating, helping her sister's to get settled and trying to settle her own life she is kept busy.

A good who done it.

Tj's break from her life in Serenity on Paradise Lake, Nevada involves uprooting five people and seven pets for the summer.

Finding a dead body in the attic on their arrival at Turtle Cove Resort on Gull Island, South Carolina sets Tj's inclination to investigate in motion.

As Tj continues learning to parent her two young half-sisters, and coming to terms with her love life, the characters continue to bond with each other and with the series followers.

TJ and some of her pals are on the road with a working vacation on an island. While dealing with kids that are unhappy with summer plans, mixed feelings about her traveling companion and two "grandpas" in tow, they discover a dead body that has TJ and crew thinking that the local deputy might just be a killer! Great character development coupled with an intriguing plot that is complete with potential buried treasure, this book is definitely a good one for an afternoon of entertainment!

TJ takes her sisters, her grandfather, her friend, Kyle and 7 animals to Gull Island, SC to take care of an old friend of the family's retreat. When she arrives, she and Kyle and Doc find a body in the attic. They call the police and start to learn about the victim, the deputy and all the players who might have killed the man. The reason she is so persistent is that Doc, a retired coroner, says that the man was murdered. While this goes on, she deals with someone trying to force a sale of the la ...more

Having read the first book in the Tj Jensen Paradise Lake Mystery Series, I was eager to read the newly released seventh book, Treasure in Paradise. It opens with the captivating “There is magic in beginnings.”

I must admit that although Tj Jensen stumbles onto a crime scene in the first chapter, it took me a little while to orient myself. I don’t think the fault of the confusion lies with the author but with my expectations. The series up to this point is set in a family owned resort in the mou

Tj Jensen and her family head to Turtle Cove Resort for summer vacation but there isn't going to be much relaxing as they find a dead body.

Tj thought it would be fun to get away and a friend of hers was in the hospital and needed someone to look after his old resort. Someone was wanting to buy it but the old man isn't sure if he wants to sell and he thought Tj could watch over the resort and met with the man. They didn't expect to find a dead treasure hunter in the attic.

It shouldn't bother her

The friend plans to sell the family resort, but only to someone who will run it the same way, though a big corporation is pressuring him and the locals to sell so a big resort can be built. TJ's prepared for most of that, but not for finding ...more

Treasure Hunting & A Cozy Mystery

In this installment, TJ Jensen and her family head to South Carolina to renovate an older resort. However, their plans are immediately thwarted when they find a dead body upon arriving. Who murdered the victim? When did he die? Is there really buried treasure in Gull Island?

I enjoyed this book. It was nice to see the characters out of their normal environment. The mystery wasn't the most engaging, but it was fun. I love the character development in this book.

I really love Kathi Daley's books. Kathi's books are very well written and keep your interest until the end and then you want more. I finished book #7 of the Tj Jensen Mystery series and I wanted it to continue on and on so I am going to be reading book #8 Fireworks in Paradise next. If you haven't tried her books I do not think you will be disappointed. Thank you Kathi Daley for another amazing book.

TJ Jensen and her family are on their way to Turtle Cove Resort for a much needed vacation. When you think of adventures, you think of buried treasure. Buried treasure….does that include someone looking for it? TJ doesn’t feel the local authorities are doing their job properly and sets out to see what really happened.

The storyline moves like the sand on the beach on a windy day. A MUST READ!

I voluntarily read an Advance Readers Copy from NetGalley and Henery Press.

Another fun read. This one takes place with TJ and her family (minus her dad) on vacation. It was nice to see the family in a different setting, but this book seemed a bit forced. My favorite character this time around was the parrot, Blackbeard. I enjoyed seeing TJ interact with other people, but it wasn't quite the same as when she's back home in Serenity. Still, it was a good read.

Just when you think you know things are settled- they aren't. There is more going on than we think. I enjoyed the mystery and the idea of old maps and treasure hunts. Some treasure is not gold and gems. And maybe a new romance? I look forward to more TJ and friends. I always wish the books were longer so I could keep reading. Looking forward to the next one in the series!

I have enjoyed all of the Paradise series so far and could not wait to read this one but I was somewhat disappointed in that I felt a little disconnect. There were a lot changes in TJ's life and those things were explained but just felt like I had missed something. Loved the story and the addition of the parrot.

Although this began rather slowly it quickly picked up pace and interest. The treasure plot didn't really intrigue me, the characters and their relationships did. There could have been more humor or action but it ended well

It was not my favorite book in the series but still good. I felt the book was slow in the middle, and then picked up toward the end. I'll keep reading series as I think there are so manu possibilities for where it can go.
