Not everyone whose family needs to heal from personal tragedy would take their family to post Katrina Mississippi, but Maxine Davies (Mad Max) isn’t just anyone. She's brave, adventuresome, compassionate and caring, but Uncharted Territory isn't just a feel good story. In the second Mad Max novel, Betsy Ashton takes us on a personal and actual journey of mystery and intrigue with dead bodies galore and secrets hidden in the destruction. Max's first obligation is to her family, especially ensuring the safety of her grandchildren, but amidst the devastation, she also wants to help those she encounters deal with their struggles. But the locals don’t seem to want her help. Ignoring the threat to her own safety, Maxine perseveres, because…well, because she’s Mad Max and the good hero she is, doesn’t take no well. She takes on racism, child abuse, modern-day slavery. The mystery, the intrigue, chaos and struggles to heal unfolds in Ashton’s smooth and delightfully entertaining style. Readers across all genres will love the captivating story and memorable characters in Uncharted Territory, a Mad Max Mystery.
Not what I expected, but a good story well told. I liked the characters, which is why I read!
Far too "talky". I have worked through too many cutsey conversations for this to be enjoyable. On to page 100 then I am finished if the tone doesn't change
I look forward to many more stories written by this author. Thank you for a heartwarming read.
