Welcome back to the Manic Writer! I hope you are having a lovely February. February has always seemed to me to be the definitive month of Winter. I always imagined it was February in Narnia when Lucy slipped through the wardrobe, even though I have no basis for that belief. It’s that time of year when it’s feels as if it’s been cold forever, and will always be cold forevermore. Of course I know that the beginning of February is the halfway point of winter and Spring is right around the corner, but it seems so far off.
Ah, well. Winter will end and then I’ll be complaining about the heat. Not that I mind the cold, but it does get into your bones when you sit and type for hours.
Today I am reviewing a book by an Indie author that is the sequel to a book I’ve read. A Maze & Grace: A Goode-Grace Mystery (Goode-Grace Mysteries Book 2) by Cyn Mackley.
A Maze and Grace is the second in Mackley’s Goode-Grace Mysteries. It centers on the life of Trinity Goode and Bobby Grace, who had the good grace to fall in love with each other in book 1. (See what I did there? Ahh!) Bobby’s been away serving his time with the National Guard in Iraq and when the book opens he’s arriving home.
Do their relatives, loved ones and other acquaintances leave them to readjust to life together? Of course not! They are thrown back into life together with all the fun and mess it can bring. When that includes an impromptu visit from her ex-boyfriend and his new wife she might wish they had.
Mackley expertly weaves Bobby and Trinity’s love story right into the mystery that ends up being dropped on their doorstep by way of the corn maze Trinity helps run with her cousin and his wife. She keeps you on the edge of your seat, and guessing who the guilty party is until the last possible moment ending it with a twist I never saw coming.
If you love mystery and romance mingled together you have to read A Maze & Grace: A Goode-Grace Mystery (Goode-Grace Mysteries Book 2) by Cyn Mackley. I am looking forward to book 3 in the series.
A Maze and Grace is available at Amazon in Kindle for $2.99 and in paperback for $9.97. It’s also part of the kindle unlimited Program.
