Miranda Vaughn Mysteries, #2
~Released: June 22nd, 2016
~Length: 7 Hours 9 Minutes
~Genres: Mystery, Contemporary
~Parent’s Guide Rating: PG 13
Miranda Vaughn was once falsely accused of stealing millions, and now she’s helping others who are facing criminal charges. While being an assistant to her former defense attorney isn’t Miranda’s dream job, she’s eager to prove herself, and her first task is a simple one—protect Kathryn, a shy CFO turned informant, and help her prove that a popular real estate developer is embezzling millions from his company. But what should be a straightforward assignment is deliciously complicated when Miranda is thrown together with FBI Agent Jake Barnes, the man who saved her life, broke her heart, and then disappeared.
Beneath the neatly plotted rows of new homes lurk dark secrets, bitter feuds and a whole lot of greed. Nothing is what it appears, even Miranda’s timid client, who is hiding secrets of her own. Despite her growing distrust of her client, Miranda must protect Kathryn from becoming the target of the FBI’s investigation and protect herself from the real thief—all while protecting her heart from the sexy FBI agent she can’t seem to resist.
“High stakes, high energy, and a highly humorous good time!”
~ Gemma Halliday, New York Times Bestselling author
USA Today best-selling author Ellie Ashe has always been drawn to jobs where she can tell stories—journalist, lawyer, and now writer. Writing quirky romantic mysteries is how she gets the “happily ever after” that so often is lacking in her day job.
When not writing, you can find her with her nose in a good book, watching far too much TV, or trying out new recipes on unsuspecting friends and family. She lives in Northern California with her husband and three cats, all of whom worry when she starts browsing the puppy listings on petfinder.com.
Teri Schnaubelt is a Chicago-based actor, voice actor and audiobook narrator with over 100 titles, including NY Times Bestsellers.
Perfect continuation of an already wonderful story.
Sequels are, often times, either better than their predecessor, or worse. With this series, it’s simply continuing on the same level, allowing each character to grow. We learn more with each chapter, and as old relationships deepen, yet another new mystery surrounds Miranda in danger.
I enjoyed the development between Miranda and a new male character, who I actually preferred to Jack. I also did enjoy the progression with Miranda and Jack, even if it was minor in comparison to their growth in the first novel. Learning more about her friends and family was also nice, and gave a well-rounded look into her life as an independent woman.
I was surprised about what happened with her aunt, and was happy with how it ended. It seemed as though this novel zoomed in on a few key characters, as opposed to the broad strokes given to all the characters in the previous book. I’m curious to see where the focus shifts in the final installment, and hope something is resolved in Miranda’s personal life.
Well written and excellently narrated, this is definitely a series I would recommend to others.
*I was given a complimentary audiobook copy of this novel, from the author via Audiobookworm Promotions, to listen to in exchange for an honest review.
PG-13 rating for some mild sexual and sensual scenes, descriptions and encounters & mild language.
Thanks for visiting! =D
