"We don't hide from our problems. We take 'em head on." While Magnolia, "Maggie", may have ran from her problems when she was 18, she is now facing them head on like her Momma raised her to. Her life has been shaped by a terrible event that happened on her graduation night. An event that she doesn't remember except for the feelings it provokes. She returns home after 10 years and has many relationships to mend and rebuild, starting with her Momma. She is immediately thrust into a murder investigation, becoming the prime suspect. While trying to clear herself of the current dilemma she has found herself in, she is starting to remember what happened to her that dreaded night that changed her life. Maggie is a strong, independent woman with sass and attitude. Yet, underneath she is still a vulnerable, scared girl who just wants her Momma to love and comfort her. As always with Denise's books, the characters are well developed, the story intriguing and mysterious, yet full of wit and humor. You are pulled into the story and feel like you are one of the characters alongside Maggie. I didn't want to put the book down. When I wasn't able to read, I found myself thinking about the book and even dreaming about it. So many questions went through my mind. What had happened that night? Who done it....then and now? Who can she trust? While the Rose Gardner Mystery Series holds a special place in my heart and will always be my favorite series of Denise's, this new series is giving it a run for the money coming in at a very close second. I received an ARC (advanced readers copy) of this book in exchange for an honest review.
