As Susan Breen’s compelling cozy mystery series continues, Maggie Dove’s budding detective agency has given her a new lease on life. Only one thing stands in the way of success: her clients—or lack of them.

2nd in Series
Alibi (November 8, 2016)
Approximately 225 pages

After catching the killer who shook her small Hudson River town, former Sunday School teacher Maggie Dove stumbled onto an exciting new career and found a way to take her mind off her own tragic past. Now, despite her best efforts to promote the agency, Maggie can’t seem to land any new cases—until Racine Stern, one of the village’s wealthiest residents, offers her a thousand dollars to convince her “evil” sister, Domino, to stay out of town.

While Maggie’s business partner thinks she’s crazy for turning down a potential client, she doesn’t want her agency to get a reputation for accommodating bizarre requests. However, Maggie is soon caught up in the family drama anyway. Racine may fear for her life—and her inheritance—but it’s Domino who takes the fall when she plunges to her death from a tower at Stern Manor. Was it an accident or something more sinister? Maggie’s investigation will test her faith—and her ability to survive.

I enjoy reading about seniors who are not ready to slow down, who still appreciate the value and opportunities in life. Not many would consider joining together and starting a private investigative firm. These ladies want to form an agency that caters to women. 
In small towns there are always those who think they know everyone's business and definitely desire to know everything that is going on. Private investigation work deals with the less positive aspects of society.
When the wealthiest family in town has a "situation" occur that then results in murder, can a retired Sunday School teacher handle confrontations with dark magics? 

If you like a lot of "personality" in your cozy and deep dark secrets, you will find yourself carried away by this second book in the series. Deceit and deception play strong roles.
