Book Review, Act Two by Denise Grover Swank

REVIEWED BY Monique Cashmere

Act Two (Magnolia Steele Mystery #2)

Act Two by Denise Grover Swank
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Some things are better left in the past. How many times can you be told this phrase and let the past go? For Magnolia, infinity! There are still questions unanswered about her fathers disappearance that Maggie needs resolved so she can have closure to that part of her life. Before she can dig too deep, she stumbles across a dead body. That makes two now, but who’s counting. Things just aren’t adding up with the details of her father’s disappearance. She has to contend with a lot of predicaments to progress with the case, and one thing is for sure – she can’t trust anyone!

Sometimes when you are reading book two in a series, you get lost or loose momentum with the story, not so with this book. It was fast paced and had me glued from the start. There was so much to take in, and I so wanted Magnolia to find out the truth, especially before her momma passes. Just when you think it is all tied up, another clue is dropped to add to the mystery. The last one being gasp worthy. DGS knows how to keep us intrigued and its not only the mystery but the relationships with these great characters she creates for us.

This book ends with a cliff hanger, and the next book, Call Back, is due in February 2017. I for one will be itching to get my hands on Brady….I mean the book to find out what else is installed for Maggie and the gang.
