Publisher's Summary

The year is 1978. The Duncan brothers and their tough-as-nails women have vanquished their rivals and taken their place as the leaders of Waycross, Georgia's criminal enterprises. However, their rise to power has not gone unnoticed, and the family is rocked when their mother, Miss Bettie, is kidnapped and her body is found in a swamp. No one knows who the killers are, but instead of drawing closer, the family is split when their grief-stricken leader, LC, is offered membership in the South's most powerful black organization, the Council.

Membership has its privileges, but they do not include his brothers. LC packs up his growing family and moves to Atlanta to open his first car dealership. Unable to deal with their mother's death, Lou Duncan searches for her killers with the help of an unlikely ally - LC's ex-fiancée. Her presence may cost him his relationship with his brothers, but Lou is resigned to that fact because Donna's help is instrumental in finding Ms. Bettie's abductors.

What he will soon learn is that his search for the truth will also lead him to discover a long-buried Duncan family secret.

The family business all makes sense now

If you could sum up Grand Opening 2 in three words, what would they be?

Dramatic, Suspenseful, Exciting.

What did you like best about this story?

The character story continues to thrill from the first family business novel to this one. I was also glad that Mama Betty did not end up dead.

Which scene was your favorite?

When its revealed that Donna is Jr's birth mother, and the arrangement that Chippie made with her to keep it a secret. I was shocked to find out that Donna became addicted to drugs.

If you could take any character from Grand Opening 2 out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Chippie because how she is described in the book series makes me envision she is a truly glamorous woman. Both the younger and matriarch version of Chippie, though I would be more interested in hanging out with Chippie the cougar more.

Roller Coaster Ride

What made the experience of listening to Grand Opening 2 the most enjoyable?

The vocal performers were incredible and would paint every scene in the book. I felt as if I were there, observing it all.

What did you like best about this story?

There were a few wild guesses on my part, but overall, it kept me on the edge of my seat and the twists and turns were all worth the ride.

Which scene was your favorite?

Well, there were two: When Shirley saw Ms. Betty at the Beach, and when Donna and Chippie went looking for Levi!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes
