Good book full of twists and turns, it had me fooled as to who the culprit was. The characters were interesting and realistic in most ways but I did get aggravated with the main character, Magnolia. I felt at times that her decisions to play superwoman were just a bit ridiculous. No one with half a brain puts themselves in harms way as many times as she did. It also amazed me that she could dig up information but the police couldn't? While I realize she didn't have much faith in the local police department, they came across as totally incompetent and lackadaisical which is hard to believe in this day and age. Being from the South, the mannerisms and respect shown for Magnolia's elders was spot on for the most part as we were always taught from an early age to say "yes ma'am" and "no ma'am". We also added "Miss" to an older female persons first name if we were going to use it (and Mr. to a males) so I was surprised she didn't call Tilly "Miss Tilly" and Alvin, "Mr. Alvin". All in all it was a good book even if I wanted to slap some sense into Magnolia a couple of times. Bless her heart...

A standing ovation for Miss Maggie!! I was already excited to read this series because mystery is my favorite genre but I had no idea it would be this phenomenal! Even during Center Stage I knew I’d love the series. That’s when you start seeing the insanely amazing amount of details in the story and if you’re like me, you’ll try to start piecing the story together to try to figure out the mystery in the past, but it is pretty unpredictable in parts and I just couldn’t figure it out. I absolutely love a book that catches me off guard and keeps me on my toes and this whole series did that for sure. Magnolia hasn’t always been my favorite character but this series is one of my favorites because the mystery is just that amazing, the writing is sooo good, and the conclusion of the Curtain Call solidified my belief. This is a fantastic series for anyone who likes mystery books. It really will not disappoint. A standing ovation to the Magnolia Steele series!!

I’m so excited that this amazing series is now available as a box set. 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 Magnolia “Maggie”. Maggie grows throughout the series but remains strong and made of "steele", even when the answers she gets should destroy her. Just when I thought I had possibly figured something out, it twisted and turned. At one point I wasn't trusting anyone, questioning every little thing they said or did. Don’t wait, get it today! Just be prepared to get nothing else done or no sleep once you start, you won’t want to put it down.

These books are some of my favorite. They are fast pace and keep you guessing. I wrote individual reviews for each book but they where so long that I didn't have room for them. You are going to want to grab a tissue box. Better yet make a reading survival kit. Your not going to want to move when you start these books. If you are a fan of the Rose Gardner books you are going to like these.

If you haven't already read Denise Grover Swank's Magnolia Steele Mystery series, now is this time! These books are absolutely amazing, and one of my favorite series by this author. This box set contains four full length books, and is now sold in a bundle for only $9.99. This is an amazing value for such great books that you can now binge read back to back. I've read all of them individually, and highly recommend buying this set if you love Denise's books, or just a wonderful mystery series with added suspense and a little romance!

Denise Grover Swank takes readers on a roller coaster of emotion and suspense in this fantastic series. I originally read each of these as separate books, but you can snag them all in one set! In Center Stage we meet Magnolia, whose return home is filled with mystery. From a dead body, to a missing father and a decade old mysterious event that caused Maggie to suddenly leave her hometown and not look back. In this book the mother-daughter struggle between Magnolia and her mom stands out as true to life. Denise Grover Swank writes relationship so well! The mystery continues in Act Two. The suspense builds as Magnolia starts to dig into her fathers mysterious disappearance. Once again Magnolia stumbles across a dead body. She has two men helping her, but who can she trust? Call Back is just as intriguing as the previous books. I couldn't put it down. With each person Maggie speaks with she learns more about the mystery surrounding her fathers disappearance. She also is coming to grips with the fact that there is a killer out there and she witnessed one of the murders. The more answers she finds, the more questions that arise. Denise Grover Swank knows how to keep the reader guessing along with Maggie, who can she trust? Curtain Call was the final installment, and I could not put it down. I literally read it in one afternoon! Magnolia Steele is a fierce and feisty woman that readers can relate to. As she seeks to uncover the truths from her past she begins to find her place in the present. This story took so many twists and turns, leading to a surprising and satisfying ending.

Maggie’s story is the perfect choice for your next read! I read all four books in the Magnolia Steele Mystery Series when they first came out and loved them all. How exciting that they are now offered as a box set! Denise Grover Swank has created another world filled with characters that I absolutely love. Poor Magnolia has been through an awful lot in her 28 years but she is a strong young woman and can get through it! Maggie left her hometown years ago after a horrible experience when she was a teenager and vowed to never return. She leaves to go into acting but her Broadway dreams have been less than dreamy. She comes home to her Momma just to have her world turned upside down again and again. She is thrust into a murder investigation and trouble ensues. People return from her past that she’d have rather kept in her past. There is love, there are tears, there is laughter, there is heart….and then there is Colt!! As I read the series, I thought that each book was better than the last. The series as a whole has a ton to offer and is a must read! Pick it up at a great price!

Where to even start? Magnolia Steele Mystery is beyond amazing series by Denise Grover Swank. It's the one of the best series! I've read a whole series and it was impossible to put it down! I was hooked from the very beginning to the last page of the last book. I love Maggie and her friends and already miss them, they became my friends too. "Some things are better left in the past" - this phrase's been told to Maggie so many times too many for her liking but the uncovered and unsolved things in the past are torturing her present life so Maggie is determined to make it right and clear her name. Don't.Trust.No one! That's the motto! The storyline is developed beautifully and keeps you on the edge of your seat. There is everything a mystery needs to be. Denise adds quite a few funny moments that makes you laugh too. So I went through all kinds of emotions while reading this amazing series. If you're looking for something new, this is it! Besides you're lucky to get whole series in one set which is great! You're going to be hooked and love Maggies story!

This is a series by Denise Grover Swank, and my belief is, it is one of 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. By buying this boxset, you have the luxury of being able to binge read the four books one after the other. And I know you will be compelled to do so, as you will be grabbed from the first chapter and needing to know all about Magnolia and her nightmares. Enjoyed every one of these books, and wish there was more.
