When Geneva's ambition and machinations run up against rugged mountain ways, she finds herself flung from one perilous adventure and heartbreak to another.

Ultimately, Geneva realizes she must face herself before she is free to truly love and be loved.

“A Sinner in Paradise pretty much sums up what this tale is about! What it doesn't say is that there is humor, pretty amazing and beautiful scenes described that are breathtaking to picture and some well-developed characters along the way. “ – Tome Tender Book Blog
“ The descriptions made me want to sit on the porch swing with a cuddly kitten while the characters live out their fascinating lives.” – Elizabeth Hein, author of How to Climb the Eiffel Tower
”The sense of place shines through and carries the reader right into the story. The supporting characters are wonderfully drawn, with rich local flavor.” – Summer Kinard, author of Tea & Crumples
