Publisher's Summary

Thriller writer Mia Kingsley has been hit with a serious case of writer’s block, and she needs a little peace and quiet. A beachfront property in Magnolia Sound seemed like the perfect escape and just the change of scenery she needs to get the words flowing again. That is until her noisy neighbor starts running power tools and blasting music at all hours of the day and night. Before long, the next victim in her story starts to bear an uncanny resemblance to the contractor next door.

Austin Coleman never wanted to come back to Magnolia Sound. But sometimes, life takes an unexpected turn and the only way to get back on your feet is to go home. His plan is to avoid all things connected to his past, and renovating a beach house in the off-season is just the way to do that - there’ll be no neighbors and no distractions. Or so he thought until he almost maims his sexy neighbor with a flying sink. Despite his best efforts, trouble follows everywhere he goes.

LOVED Mia and Austin's story!!!

This series, Magnolia Sound, just keeps getting better and better. The Way the Story Goes is Ms. Chase’s latest release in this series and let me tell you this: PHE! NOM! INAL!!!!! I love this series so much, and I could not wait for it to hit my Kindle.
I was gifted with an early copy of this book for my reading enjoyment and my opinions on the book. I finished within a day of starting it. I was loving it so much I bought the Audible version as well. Yep, came out yesterday, and finished it too!!
This book kept me laughing. Mia and Austin were definitely meant for each other. Well, maybe Mia did not think so at the beginning, so much so, she started envisioning his demise in a book. You see Mia is an author of mystery novels. She came to Magnolia Sound for some peace and quiet because she was having a problem with writer’s block. This is where we come to reason Mia is devising Austin’s death. Austin is renovating the house next door, loudly, pretty much ALLLLLL DAY LONG. And Mia has had enough!!! She goes over to confront the ignorant, rude, pain in the ….. PG, have to keep this PG…lol. I will put it this way, once she sees Austin, she starts to have an additional distraction.
I loved watching these two build up their relationship. One of my favorite parts is when she went all “Momma Bear” on Austin’s aunt. In my opinion, she (aunt) was a real, ummmmm, witch!!!
I do not want to give anything away, so I am going to stop telling you about the events in the book. sI will say this, I absolutely sitting down and reading this wonderful book last week. But, when I started listening to the narrator Carly Robin, tell the story…WOW!!! She just brought this story to life and made me love it even more than I did previously.
Thank you, Ms. Chase, for sharing your phenomenal writing talents with your readers. I ALWAYS know when I start one of your books, I will definitely be entertained, and I will be able to escape into another world for a while.
Thank you for reading my review. If you are new to this wonderful series, that is not a problem, each book is a stand-a-lone with a definite HEA. Now go hit that purchase button from your favorite retailer. You will not be disappointed. 😊

Tough to get through.

I’m a fan of Samantha Chase, but this book didn’t do anything for me. I felt annoyed at the way the main character was portrayed. Indecisive, spoiled and just kind of out there. Not sure of the point of this book. Super light listen without a lot of substance. Hoping the next book is better.
