Synopsis

DEATH BY DESIRE is Book #4 in the #1 Bestselling Caribbean Murder series, following the FREE book DEATH BY HONEYMOON (#1), DEATH BY DIVORCE (#2) and DEATH BY MARRIAGE (#3).

In the midst of gorgeous St. Bart’s, a few days before Christmas, a Senator’s daughter is found stabbed and strangled on the beach—the day after her engagement party. While the rich and famous are pouring in to celebrate the holidays, the local police are desperate to keep it quiet and not cause an uproar. But the Senator’s family wants justice for their daughter, and they hire Cindy and Mattheus to solve the crime.

As Cindy and Mattheus investigate, they meet the elite crowd surrounding the Senator’s family, an exclusive world of unimaginable wealth, of luxurious parties on yachts and private villas. They learn of all the people who may have wanted the young woman dead, all the jealousies and rivalries, the secret ex-es and affairs. They meet her devastated fiancé, her twin sister and her distraught Mom—all intent on the killer’s being found. They meet the corrupt police force, who wants them stopped, and a rich Russian mogul who controls half the island—and has his own agenda to bring down the senator.

As they delve deeper, they learn the many secrets of this exclusive family and the young woman, and discover that all was not as perfect as it appeared to be. As they get close to the answers, Cindy faces personal danger, while at the same time her relationship with Mattheus grows deeper—and faces a crisis of its own.

And as the two of them are about to leave the island, a sudden twist in events changes everything. Ultimately, they come to learn that on the pristine, perfect St. Bart's, everything is not always as it seems to be.

Books #5--#14 in the series are now also available!

A great mystery with lots of twists and characters that could be suspects. No useless language or sex. I enjoy Jayden's series.

Nice and easy reading. I enjoyed it better than Death by honeymoon, but I was disappointed by too many typing mistakes.

Interesting. Seems to have skipped the proofreading department. Too hard to follow with all the typos and grammatical errors. Lost train of thought trying to interpret the mstakes. Too much romance between the two investigators.

Jaden Skye has interesting and well thought out plots. However, her command of English is severely challenged. Further her use of adjectives and adverbs are often forced and even totally out of place! And the editing of the document seems to be done by the author and the most obvious is missed. More careful composition could really add to the mystery. As far as this story is concerned, I was able to discern the identity of the murderer by the fourth chapter!

This book was probably the first murder mystery I have read. It was called death by desire n the title was apt. If u read the book you would know why I say that. However it was very predictable and the author has needlessly involved so many characters. I felt I knew who was the killer after reading the first few pages but the author wouldn't let me believe it. The author was plainly trying to distract the reader by trying to weave an unconvincing web. Sorry, I don't mean to be so critical but to me the book was a limp , tasteless spring roll.
