Mary Ellis is my Friday Friend. Mary and I have shared a table at various book events in Ohio. Not only is she good writer but she’s a very nice person who’s fun to be around! Mary’s written a variety of novels. Most of her books have been Amish stories, but in the past few years she’s branched out to historical and mystery novels–all Christian books as well.
You can learn more about Mary and her books at www.maryellis.net. Her latest book is MAGNOLIA MOONLIGHT.
What Sinister Secrets Lurk in the Shadows of Yesterday?
Natchez, Mississippi—Private Investigator Nate Price and his new wife, Isabelle, need a vacation. Their coworkers generously team up to surprise them with a belated honeymoon…but the happy trip turns sour when Izzy spies her ex-husband, who appears to have taken up his gambling addiction once again.
While the boss is away, Price Investigations remains in the hands of Beth Kirby, a former police officer, and Michael Preston, a former forensic accountant. Hardly a dream team, as Beth resents working with a man who has no experience in his new job.
But Beth and Michael must move past their differences if they hope to uncover the truth behind a beloved Southern preacher’s demise. The preacher’s widow suspects foul play, despite the evidence indicating suicide.
With tension escalating between these investigators and local law enforcement—and new threats arising on all sides—how will Beth, Michael, and Nate hold on to faith and bring the truth to light?’
MY REVIEW OF MAGNOLIA MOONLIGHT
I’ve read and enjoyed some of Mary Ellis’s Amish books so I wasn’t sure what to expect with Magnolia Moonlight. After all mysteries and Amish books are not exactly similar. I was delighted with the characters and even more surprised by the double plot. She did a great job depicting the southern lifestyle and attitude.
Magnolia Moonlight is an enjoyable book that I would recommend to others. Great job, Mary Ellis!
NOTE: I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
GOD BLESS & GOOD READING!
