REVIEWED BY Monique Cashmere
Center Stage: Magnolia Steele Mystery #1 by Denise Grover Swank
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a brand new series by Denise Grover Swank, and my believe is, it will be her best yet. Denise is a master at creating characters that you either want to love and hug or just plain slap. You fall for every emotion whilst reading her books and this one especially. Some tender moments between a mother and daughter is touching.
There are a couple of central characters, but the main one being Magnolia Steele, a twenty-eighty year old woman returning home after fleeing ten years earlier. She just made her debut lead role on Broadway, in spectacular fashion, and runs to the only place she can, her Momma's. But her nightmare's are starting to feel all too real. Things happened ten years ago, that Magnolia can not remember but being back home is slowly bringing it all to light. And not everyone is happy to see that Magnolia has reappeared, one of them being her brother.
I love the way that Denise can have a serious issue of murder but add enough humor into her writing that you will be giggling at times. Of course, you will feel for Magnolia on her quest to find the truth and to clear her name.
Be warned, this is a series and not all answers will be revealed in the first book but I can assure you, you will get hooked in wanting to know what is next for Magnolia Steele.
