Act Two for Murder
Magnolia Steele Mystery 2
The second book in the four book USA Today bestselling Magnolia Steele Mystery series.
Magnolia may have escaped arrest for murder, but her troubles are far from behind her. She’s still haunted by two things from her past—her father’s disappearance when she was a teen, and the other...well, her memories of a serial killer have returned, but it’s best left where it belongs—in the past.
Needing closure, Magnolia decides to look into her father’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.
If Magnolia keeps digging, she’s not sure she can trust her own mother to help her, let alone her new friends and the police detective who’s eager to woo her, but after years of running, she’s ready to stand her ground.
I love these books. Well developed characters that I can relate to. Love the writing, twists an turns.
I cannot wait to start in book 3!
Could-not-put-it-down novel. Oops — need to get #3 in the series ASAP.
