"Paradise" by Joanna Nadin was a good contemporary fiction read. This author gave us a well written read that full of mystery, family secrets and even some romance in this well captivating read that moves from present to past. This novel was written very cleverly. You will only have to pick up this read to see what I am speaking of. Billie Paradise, a sixteen year old from London had inherited a house in Cornwall from her grandmother Eleanor...Now maybe Billie can get some question answered she had long wondered of ... namely just
who was her father", why did her mother leave her hometown, why did her
mother's brother...Will die?, and just why the grandparents that were never
spoken of? You will find that "Paradise" will take you on a wide up and down
ride that will give you various points of views from Billie, her mother, grandmother Eleanor and also the cast characters from Alexander, Jonty, Tom and others in this good story. As Billie falls, in love...will her love be tested when the truth about her family starts to come out? This is where I say you must pick up "Paradise" to see all the what, where, why and how to this well written read. Yes, this may have been a little predictable with this dysfunctional family but it still was a good read that I enjoyed reading. Be ready for family secrets and lies that will all come out in the end.

If you are in for a good quick and easy read you have come to the right place for "Paradise" will give you that and so much more. Be ready for the big bang in the end only to give you the real truths about this family and yes, I would recommend "Paradise" to you as a good read for the YA.
