Five stars...The Sonny B. Feelright saga is addictive. This review is from: The Premature Demise of Sonny B. Feelright: A New and Dangerous Career (Paperback) I received the second book of Sonny B. Feelright as a birthday gift. I read it cover to cover in one day. Mr. Morgan's story telling style keeps you turning the pages and before you know it you're done. Several times my wife looked over at me and said, "You're reading with a smile on your face again" I enjoyed this second book as much as the first and look forward to the third and hope to see Dwight Morgan on the best seller list in the very near future.

Reviewed by Anne B. for Readers Favorite "The Premature Demise of Sonny B. Feelright" is the second book in the series by Dwight David Morgan. In the first book we meet recent college graduate Sonny B. Feelright. He had just landed a job with a small investment firm in Chicago. His dilemma is whether to participate in an illegal takeover and further his career or divulge the information taking the risk of destroying any possibility of a career and a prison sentence. In this novel we again connect with Sonny B. Feelright. He now owns Feelright Intelligence Services LLC. "The Premature Demise of Sonny B. Feelright" stands well alone but reads much better if read after reading the first in the series. The prologue does an excellent job setting the stage for the action in book 2. "The Premature Demise of Sonny B. Feelright" begins with a bang as a bomb detonates. The blasts brings out the emotional side of Charlotte as she shows concern for his well-being. Son’s first thought was that just some kids were playing a prank but it soon became obvious that the explosion was not an innocent prank. A bomb and a mysterious black car leave little doubt that someone is out to get Sonny. Could this have anything to do with the “Black Widow”? Could it be the mob? Could it be a terrorist? Dwight David Morgan has a talent for combining suspense, humor and romance to create a must read book. The humor is more than a bit snarky and tongue in cheek. The characters play well together. I expect this series could go on for quite some time.

Reviewed by Joana James for Readers Favorite "The Premature Demise of Sonny B. Feelright" is an exciting mystery. Sonny and his two partners help unravel financial fraud and fueled by their success, they come together to start a financial investigative company. Six weeks after their doors open, they still have no business. That is until they come under attack. Business begins to pour in but the threats continue. The story follows the team's quest to find out who is behind the attacks and why. Things get heated when the attacks begin to be obviously focused on Sonny. Through it all, a budding romance between Sonny and one of his partners adds the necessary romantic spice to flavor the plot, especially when the lovely Doctor Liz Loveland enters the picture. This book contains mystery, suspense and a bit of romance. It is well-written and the plot flows well. The mix of mystery and romance kept me interested. Even though one could tell who the bad guys were, the process of the characters themselves trying to get to the bottom of things was interesting enough to keep you riveted to the book. The many attempts on Sonny's life and all the romantic tension between the characters gave the book added depth. The characters were well-developed and the story is good enough to keep you coming back for more. The end was fitting; however, I was slightly disappointed at what happened to the bad guy, but I hope it ended this way because there is a sequel coming. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and recommend it to anyone who enjoys mystery and suspense.

Reviewed by Stephanie D. for Readers Favorite "The Premature Demise of Sonny B Feelright" by Dwight David Morgan is a mystery/thriller story with an unusual slant. Sonny, now a forensic accountant, is the son of hippies, rather embarrassed about his full name of Sonny Bright Feelright. He is a big, gentle guy, something of an innocent in the worlds of business, intrigue and love. His relationship with Charlotte is all over the place so that when a nasty rashness brings him into contact with the lovely Dr Liz, things look like Sonny's middle name - Bright. It is true that accountants are often under-appreciated, but here they are seen as the enemy. Someone first tries to blow Sonny up and then shoot him. Someone clearly wants him dead. But who? There turn outs to be quite a cast of possibilities. The world of finance and investment is a lot deadlier than it might appear and could certainly lead to Sonny’s premature demise. This is a very entertaining and original book that provides an insight into the neglected but important area of accountants and company finances. It follows on from "The Unlikely Career of Sonny B Feelright", Morgan’s debut novel. It is fast moving with plenty of intriguing and complex characters along the way, such as Adonis the FBI agent, Melody the ruthless journalist and the eccentric Herkmeiers. There are no cardboard cut-outs but there are unexpected events at every turn with triumphs, disasters, setbacks, violence and romance. The author has an eye for humour as well as detail, sometimes sordid, which makes this the sort of book it is hard to put down.

Reviewed by Alice D. for Readers Favorite Sonny Bright Feelright's parents were hippies and named their son accordingly. Sonny and his friends Simon Courtney and Charlotte McCardle had worked for Tom Blake as he conspired with Nancy Black, the Canadian hedge fund manager known as the Black Widow. The conspiracy failed, Nancy Black is beyond furious, and now Sonny, Simon and Charlotte form an Investigative Service in Chicago to try to make money on their own. But someone is stalking Sonny, blowing up a dumpster as he walks by it, following him in a black car and trying to run him down. The doctor, Elizabeth Loveland, at the hospital where Sonny is treated, is also attracted to him. But then there is Charlotte and her off again/on again feelings for Sonny. Where does Mobster Danny Bryce fit into the picture? Is he also trying to kill poor Sonny? "The Premature Demise of Sonny B. Feelright" is a well-written, often humorous story with both major and minor characters who are humorous and also totally believable. For instance, Adonis the FBI agent, Charlotte's beautiful mother, and Margaret, the aggressive female newspaper reporter, add to the story line. The reader will read through the pages of this book holding their breath as Sonny gets into one almost lethal scene after another. The plot proceeds convincingly to the story's end with twists and turns and cars of different types and colors that follow Sonny B. Feelright wherever he goes. "The Premature Demise of Sonny B. Feelright" should be on everyone's summer reading list everywhere.

Reviewed by Brenda Ballard for Readers Favorite Sonny Bright Feelright, the son of hippies (hence the given name) embarks upon a new chapter in his life as a Forensic Accountant. Who would have known that such a dull sounding title could be such a dangerous and harrowing job? Sonny has opened shop with Simon and Charlotte, two co-workers from a now defunct investment company whose devious owner carries a grudge. Between her, the mafia and, well, basically the past, Sonny has every reason to be concerned about his life. When a bomb detonates in the alley as he approaches, a chain of events begin leaving the man with the funny name racing to find which nemesis aims to kill. "The Premature Demise of Sonny B. Feelright: A New and Dangerous Career" is part of a series written by Dwight David Morgan. I did not realize I was reading the continuation until doing a little research on the author. Mr. Morgan has the skill to write in such a way that the reader becomes completely engrossed in his story and even in the middle of a series can start off not feeling as though something was missed. This is not something that all authors are capable of! Furthermore, the author's writing not only draws the reader into the story, it is descriptive and real. It was easy to picture the scenes as they unfolded. It was even easier to sink in with the plot, looking forward to the next page and the next page after that! I will be finding a copy of the first book in the series, "The Unlikely Career of Sonny B. Feelright" in the near future!

If you read the first in this series, 'The Unlikely Career of Sonny B Feelright' (and if you didn't, go get it now) you will know you're in for a treat with this sequel. Honour, honesty and humour are the pillars on which this excellent comedy thriller are built, with a cast of characters as unforgettable as they are unusual. From the very first page, with brand new Feelright Intelligence Services in the doldrums without any clients, and a sense of panic permeating their dowdy office premises, you just know something is about to happen to set you on a tearaway read through dodgy high finance, frustrating romance, evil villains and unusual circumstances guaranteed to bring a smile to your face, while you are compelled to keep turning the pages to find out what comes next.
