What Sinister Secrets Lurk in the Shadows of Yesterday?

Natchez, Mississippi—Private Investigator Nate Price and his new wife, Isabelle, need a vacation. Their coworkers generously team up to surprise them with a belated honeymoon…but the happy trip turns sour when Izzy spies her ex-husband, who appears to have taken up his gambling addiction once again.

While the boss is away, Price Investigations remains in the hands of Beth Kirby, a former police officer, and Michael Preston, a former forensic accountant. Hardly a dream team, as Beth resents working with a man who has no experience in his new job.

But Beth and Michael must move past their differences if they hope to uncover the truth behind a beloved Southern preacher’s demise. The preacher’s widow suspects foul play, despite the evidence indicating suicide.

With tension escalating between these investigators and local law enforcement—and new threats arising on all sides—how will Beth, Michael, and Nate hold on to faith and bring the truth to light?

    Does a pastor who commits suicide go to heaven? An intersting question that leaves a wife and parishioners concerned when Beth Kirby's former pastor "off's himself". His widow, however, seems to think he's been murdered. Beth and Michael from Price Investigations seem to think that would benefit her much more than an unclaimed insurance policy that won't payout with a suicide.

    Price Investigations has got their hands full solving this one. Beth and Michael both PI's with Price Investigations get off to a rocky start. Beth's reputation with men in her workplace and Michael's tendency to jump the gun, make for an interesting combination. But working together, although providing a challenge, turns into a cultivated friendship that could possibly lead somewhere.

    Nate, the owner of Price Investigations is away on a three week delayed honeymoon. Celebrating with his wife turns out to be anything but what he expected, when her ex-husband just happens to be in the same town.

    Two mysteries in one, makes this book an exciting read. Jumping back and forth between Nate's honeymoon fiasco and Beth and Michael's PI competition, Mary feeds us a compelling story line. You won't want to put this one down, til you find out Who-done-it! This book will get your emotions involved as Michael and Beth's friendly/not-so-friendly banter gets a little testy at times. And the antagonist will quickly get under your skin as he tries to get back at Beth for something that transpired in their past.

    As book three in a series, the main connection here is Price Investigations. Some of the characters are mentioned in both books, but the mysteries being solved are completely independent of each other and can be read as a stand alone. I am looking forward to whatever Mary comes up with next!!

    Book three in the series takes place approximately two years after books two in the series, What Happened on Beale Street. Isabelle and Nate are now married, but have been saving for a house so they havent taken a honeymoon yet. Coworkers, friends and family pool their resources and send them on a honeymoon. Nate leaves Price Investigations in the hands of his employee, Beth Kirby and new trainee Michael Preston. While there, Isabelle thinks she sees her ex-husband walking out of a casino. He had a gambling addiction in the past, which led to the downfall of their marriage. He has remarried and joined Gamblers Anonymous, so why is he walking out of a casino? Has he succumbed to his addiction again? This leads Isabelle and Nate on a mystery as her ex is adamant that his new wife, whom he has left at home, Isabelle and Nate are in danger.

    Beth Kirby is an ex-policewoman who left the force due to a romantic crush on her boss. Some of the other uniforms in the precinct thought she got her promotion to detective due to this relationship. She resigned and became a private investigator. She now works for Nate Price. She is given the task of training Michael, who is a whiz at computer stuff, but has no hands-on training at working an investigation. A local pastor is found dead and the investigating police office, Beths former partner at the precinct, views the death as a suicide. The victims wife refuses to believe that and comes to Beth, asking her to take on the investigation to prove the victim was murdered. Beth does find some incongruities, but isnt wild about having Michael tag along during her interviews. The two soon develop a tentative rapport while they continue to follow some missing money that everyone thinks the victim stole and that he killed himself because he couldnt live with what he had done. Beth and Michael hope to find evidence and recover the money before it disappears forever.

    I really liked that this book had two mysteries going on at the same time. I also the interplay between Beth and Michael; I hope that a romance between those two is on the horizon. I also like reading about the cuisine and geography of the southern U.S. The message of faith is also evident in this story as well, which I greatly appreciate! There is a fourth book planned for this series titled, Sunset in Old Savannah. There is no release date yet, but Ill be reading it once it is released. I have enjoyed this series so far and have enjoyed getting to know the characters better with each installment.

    Review: Enjoyed the book overall. I had trouble at the start because Beth was just plain stuck up. I was glad that she came down to earth half way through. Isabella was starting to go back to the less than gracious woman from the previous book. It was a little slower than the first and second book. I liked that there were 2 mysteries going on at once. It was an easy read, although it took me till almost half way to really get into the book. I did like Mike and Nate. Nates character was the most constant of all the characters.

    I would like to thank Net Galley and Harvest House for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

    Did Reverend Dean really steal thousands of dollars from the church, and then kill himself because of it? Or was he really murdered?

    Price investigations of Natchez, Mississippi, owned by Nate Price is about to find out. But Beth Kirby and new-to- investigation-work, Mike Preston, will be in charge of the case. Former policewoman Beth has to navigate many hurdles from her past co-workers while trying to solve this investigation.

    Mike also causes problems when he impulsively does things that make Beth look bad. Will Beth be able to continue to train Mike while Nate is gone despite his many mistakes? Or will her patience be lost with her meddling family that she has moved back in with while she is in town?

    In the mean time, Nate and wife Isabelle are taking a long overdue honeymoon to Bay St. Louis. While down there, Izzy is shocked to spot her first husband, Craig, coming out of a local casino. Although compulsive gambling led to the end of their marriage, Craig had supposedly kicked the addiction, gotten his life together, and remarried.

    Izzy is determined to get to the bottom of this, and attempts to enlist Nate's help to find out. Is Craig gambling against his will, or has the gambling bug bit him once again? Will Craig's problems ruin Izzy and Nate's romantic trip? Or in the end, will Izzy and Nate have a surprise for them all?

    This is the third installment in The South Mysteries Series, but, this story definitely stands on its own. I give you fair warning, once you read this, you will want to get the first two--and then anxiously await the fourth addition. Your attention will be grabbed from the very beginning of this 5 plus star book. This enjoyable romp offers two mysteries to puzzle through along with interesting back stories from the characters. And all of it is wrapped up in a story with no offensive language or situations. I highly recommend this book to all mystery lovers, and fans of well-written fiction. Get a copy as soon as possible!

    This is the third book in the Secrets of the South Mysteries series. Ive enjoyed each one, even though mysteries are not my go-to genre to read.

    Private investigator Nate Price and Isabelle finally get their chance at a honeymoon, but it doesnt turn into the cozy romantic getaway theyd hoped for. Isabelles ex-husband shows up in the same town. A frantic call from his current wife sends Isabelle looking for answers

    While the boss is away, Beth Kirby is taxed with teaching PI new-hire Michael Preston the ropes on a seemingly cut-and-dried suicide case. But the case proves anything other than cut-and-dried when Michaels computer sleuthing skills uncover more past than he bargained for.

    I highly recommend reading these stories in order, beginning with Midnight on the Mississippi and then What Happened on Beale Street since the reader is introduced to many of the characters in this previous books. Judging by the ending of this one there will be a book four in the future!
