Publisher's Summary

For as long as Magnolia Steele can remember, the past has had its hooks in her. Her time as a Broadway actress in New York City was an escape that ended in public humiliation, but now that she's back home in Franklin, Tennessee, she's feeling the grip of the two incidents that stole her innocence. The first was the disappearance of her father when she was a teen, who left home for a meeting and never came back. The other incident...well, her memories have returned, but it's best left where it belongs - in the past.

Hoping for closure, Magnolia decides to look into her daddy's cold case. Though the town gossips are convinced he ran away with his client's wife and money, she has always suspected foul play. Talking to a few of his old acquaintances seems harmless enough - until the man she's arranged to meet turns up dead. There's evidence someone murdered him to keep him quiet, and she realizes that whatever conspiracy her father was mixed up in is far from over; it's entering its second act.

    "Where is the ending?"
    What did you love best about Act Two?

    Fun, easy to listen to and engaging.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed and was engaged by the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, I want to know the rest of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    This book does not have an adequate ending. It's clear that to know the rest of the story you need to listen to the next book which isn't written yet. I listen to a lot of series books but most have an adequate ending and move to another story with the same characters.

    "Loved It!"

    I confess that, after reading reviews about the first book, I skipped it and started with #2. That said- I absolutely loved it.

    "Horrible narration"
    What did you like best about Act Two? What did you like least?

    The storyline was fun, and I liked the characters, but the narrator's faux southern accents were atrocious.

    "LOVED IT"

    love the storyline and the complexity of the different story lines. I enjoy the almost love affair and the guessing of who the bad guy from her past is. I am almost sure I know who it is, but I'll keep reading for that gotcha moment. can't wait

    "Great as usual!!"

    The book really keeps you guessing. I try to figure out ahead of time and still get it wrong.

    "Can't wait for the next book to come out!"

    Her books are very addictive, the first book started a little slow, but quickly got better. The second book was finished in less than 2 days, couldn't stop listening.

    "Mystery lovers need to hear this"

    The story is wonderdul. I cared about the characters and solving the mystery. I like it when I can't figure it out til the reveal! There was a twist at the end I didn't see coming. It leaves you wanting for more. The performance was good because she could make different voices for the different characters but the Southern twang sometimes got old

    Story
    "The strong arms of the law !!"

    Another good storyline in this series. Even though there's acliff hanger finish it was a complete story in itself and the ending is more a continuity than cliff hanger whither angst. Well written with a good pace throughout I really enjoyed the story and look forward to book three. Highly recommended but read in sequence .
