A fun beach read

Fun story well told by a narrator who captured the accents and voices well (I'm from Franklin County and have also lived in Roanoke, Virginia, where the story unfolds)

Welcome back MacKenzie August!

This is the second book is this fun new series. MacKenzie is a little bit like Spenser, a little bit like Chuck Norris, and and an all around good guy trying to live a life of honor. This book, like the first is full of witty one liners and MacKenzie is a character you will root for. Plus, some of the secondary characters Mackenzie deals with are both shady and goofy enough to be part of a Carl Hiaasen book. This time, Mackenzie takes a job in part because of his feelings for Ronnie Summers, a woman he is clearly in love with, but who just may be more screwed up than a seven layer burrito from Taco Bell. She's an accomplished, bright professional with a complicated personal life and parental issues. Scott Ellis does a superb job with the narration. My fingers are crossed that Audible will give us the other books in the series and that Mr. Ellis will return to read them.

I Love this Clark Kent (and his Superman boxers)

This series does not disappoint! This is book 2 of the Mackenzie August series, however, can also be a stand alone as the author quickly gets you up to speed with items from book 1. I absolutely love Mac's quirky attitude and quick wit and how he tries to do his best to make everyone happy and what he perceives is the right way of doing things. In the end, I hope he gets Roni (Veronica), but I guess time will tell ;-)

Scott Ellis is doing the narration for this book, as well as he did book 1....I love the way Ellis "knows" his characters and his Manny voice makes my chuckle inside. FABULOUS job!!!

Twists and turns

Loved the sarcastic humor of Mackenzie August. The story holds your attention throughout!

Scott Ellis does a great job of narrating. He knows his characters well.

Too much swearing for my liking.

Never a dull moment!

I listened to book one in this series and could not wait for the release of book two. Mackenzie August is my favorite leading male character, bar none!!!

This listen offers up another fantastic mystery with Mac's detective skills called upon to solve said mystery. We get to see many of the characters from book one, especially Ronnie. Since I listened to book one, I knew how Mac and Ronnie met and what made their dynamic so unique. Their history wasn't explained much in book two and I can't help but feel sorry for anyone who missed the first book. (Ronnie is not going anywhere so if you missed book one, I encourage you to go back and get the full monty on the special.)

Mac has a sense of humor and an extensive vocabulary so his dialogue was always a treat. The narrator nailed it!! Ellis didn't stop there. There were a variety of characters and dialects and they all came to life.

This was a complete story but I hope there is a book two on the horizon. I need more Mackenzie August!!

Good job as a stand-alone

Jumped in to the series with the second book. However I didn’t feel lost with what was going on and was able to pick the trail pretty easily which I think is a sign of a strong writer. And it difficult to do

Funny and suspenseful

Mackenzie is funny! And Scott Ellis delivers his zingers with perfect timing and distinctive voicing. Great characters and a suspenseful mystery make this a wonderfully entertaining listen.
