Product Description

DEATH BY OBSESSION is book #8 in the #1 Bestselling Caribbean Murder series--which begins with DEATH BY HONEYMOON, a FREE download!

In DEATH BY OBSESSION, the next installment in the #1 Bestselling Caribbean Murder series, a huge destination wedding, merging two blueblood families, is about to take place in St. Martin, when Cindy and Mattheus get an emergency call from the father of the bride. He wants them to come down to the island immediately and dig up dirt on the groom. He can’t shake his bad feeling about the guy, even though all his other investigations didn’t turn up a thing.

Cindy and Mattheus, who have been spending time building their relationship and are much closer, agree to come down on a lark and see what they can find. With help from informants from the seamy side of the island, they stumble upon a shocking secret that no one knows about: not his friends, not his family, and not his bride.

Cindy and Mattheus disagree about what should be done. But as the father confronts the bride with the news, it sets off a dramatic and unexpected response. Soon, a sudden death follows.

As all of this is going on, Cindy unexpectedly discovers something that also shakes her world: Mattheus, too, has a deep, dark secret that he has never told her. As Cindy and Mattheus investigate the awful homicide, they must also deal with this new revelation which threatens to tear their relationship apart.

Death by Obsession brings us into the heart of love, passion, secrets and lies.
DEATH BY OBSESSION is a stand-alone novel, and is also Book #8 in the Caribbean Murder series.

Book #9 in the series--DEATH BY DEVOTION--is now also available!

HASH(0xa092b8f4) out of 5 stars Good series one BIG complaint Nov. 16 2013
By silent assassin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The plot of these stories are good and keep me interested; however, the editorial mistakes are very frustrating. I feel that for the cost of these books there is no reason for the mistakes you have to endure in everyone of them. Often character names are mixed up, words are repeated, sentences make no sense and it is all due to editorial mistakes. If I were the author I would be very upset with my publisher.

HASH(0xa0326a2c) out of 5 stars A shipwreck of a writer Nov. 11 2014
By MoHurley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Typos and grammatical conundrums will have many readers gnashing their teeth: Jaden Sky is a slovenly writer who cares little for the technical aspects of her craft. I've read most of the series because they were free, she's got a decent storyline, and I like the protagonist. But I'm about to throw my hands up in despair and toss the series overboard to the sharks. Silly me. I kept thinking that Skye's writing skills would improve over time. She needs to hire a proofreader.

I can forgive an author's limited vocabulary, or lackluster sentences that change tenses mid-stream. But when the writing's consistently sloppy, there's no excuse. If you read most of the comments for her dozen Caribbean Murder novels, the same criticisms is repeated ad nauseam: riddled with myriad grammatical errors. I guess she doesn't read Amazon reviews. A pity, because with an editor, Skye could become a decent writer.

What finally sent me off the deep end as a reader, is that Skye is incapable of distinguishing between common nouns and proper noun and these stories read like bad Victorian novels: his friend's Dive Shop, she went to the Police Station, they slept in the King size bed. Skye arbitrarily capitalizes common nouns, and leaves proper nouns lower case--sometimes with unintentional meaning. "I'll handle this mother," Lynch tried to intervene. Is he swearing, or addressing his mother? (LOL, she's even got a typo on her web page: Jaden skye.)

Skye conflates characters, in one novel (4) she confused Cindy with the victim, Tiffany, which made no sense at all. Sister Ann becomes Anne. And she repeatedly repeats dialogue. Didn't I just read that?

Then there are the wrong words spelled right. "For all we know you could be best." (Hint: best may be spelled correctly but it's the wrong word. Try next.) Why do I, the reader, have to stop, and supply the right, or missing words? Isn't that the writer's job?

She's unsure of compounds words, which makes for tedious sentences: "he was an ego maniac." Forget using the word: redhead. That's too compound a thought.

Misplaced possessive apostrophes: "people often blame the one's they are close to...." Add missing conjunctions, and a plethora of adjectives and adverbs--Skye should banish all forms of beauty from her limited vocabulary. Especially the word "beautiful." In book 4, she used beautiful(ly) a whopping 70 times. This volume, over 40 times. Thesaurus much?

And when in doubt, rather than look it up, Skye uses inventive spelling: hor doerves for hors d'oeuvres; St. Marteen for Maarten. Now I'm cringing. Especially when there's spellcheck and other resources on the the web. I won't mention the bad formatting issues.

Skye's strong on dialogue; it's fairly realistic. She has an interesting storyline, and can cut a good yarn, but the plot tends to be thin and two-dimensional as the characters themselves. And the same old tropes become exceedingly tedious after a few novels. For someone who lives out of her suitcase, Cindy is always stepping out in lovely pastel linen numbers. Really? How does she do it living out of her suitcase, on the road, in the tropics, no less?

BTW, sleuthing clues on Facebook is not realistic PI work. Almost everyone has their profiles locked down tight. But that's a whole 'nother can of worms. Better to save your money, and your time for a more deserving writer.

HASH(0xa0326ac8) out of 5 stars A Huge Disappointment May 15 2014
By Constance - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I skipped from book one to this train wreck. The grammar and punctuation were awful and the copy editor should be fired. They are looking for a restaurant for dinner and a few paragraphs later sit down to lunch! The book should be an embarrassment to all involved, including the reader.

This book as AWFUL!! The first book I loved, the 2nd one was good, the 3rd one sucked and I decided to try again with this author and the series and was sorely disappointed! Th plot was stupid, the characters were not believable at all. The things that she had the male characters say were sickening. Half the conversations between characters seemed out of place. I thank God that this was a free download. This author seems to be trying to churn out as many books as possible with no focus on plot or character development.

HASH(0xa05b46a8) out of 5 stars BAD, BAD EDITING !!! Jan. 23 2015
By LadyMax - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Unfortunately, although the story line is interesting, and the characters are entertaining, THE EDITING IS AWFUL !!! I hate to leave bad Feedback and this series of books is the first EVER for which I've left negative feedback. After reading the initial book in the series, I purchased the set of 12 volumes in this Caribbean Murder Series. The editing gets WORSE and WORSE as the series of books goes onward. Having struggled through 7 of them because I enjoyed the characters, I am finally throwing in the towel. I am NOT interested in reading books 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12 (although Amazon will NOT refund my money because it is 15 days since I purchased) and I must say FOR SHAME on the Author: Jaden Skye for allowing good ideas to be presented in such a slip-shod manner. Not only excruciatingly BAD USAGE, but also confusion of character names. Nothing wrecks a story more than to have the main Detective's name exchanged for the name of the Murder Victim, and then the Murder Victim's name following in the next sentence. . .wait, who? REALLY BAD - NOT RECOMMENDED.
