Fourth and final book in the USA Today bestselling Magnolia Steele Mystery series.

 Magnolia Steele has nothing left to lose. Her once-beloved father has been unmasked as a criminal, her mother is dead, and her two closest allies—her boyfriend and her sister-in-law—have broken her trust. Worse, the serial killer who has tormented her since her return to Franklin has escalated his behavior. Everyone around her encourages her to run away or hide, but Magnolia is determined stand her ground. She intends to identify the serial killer herself, even if she has to burn every last bridge to do it. 

Her one lead is the apparent link between her father and the murders. Unsure of whom to trust, she forms a temporary alliance with a detective who’s on the outs with the Franklin police force. Together, they dig into the past for clues, but Magnolia doesn’t limit herself to secondary sources. Her father is still in town, very intent on a reunion, and her brother might finally be ready to talk about their shared past…

As the situation escalates, Magnolia discovers that she has inherited her mother’s steel backbone. It will help her distinguish friend from foe, and it might just be her best hope for surviving her curtain call.

    Really enjoyed these books. But, I found them confusing. So many names! And such a short timeline.
  • Highly recommend

    Pretty good series. (Rose Gardner is still the best.) I really enjoyed it and highly recommend. Kept me guessing until the end. The only thing I would say was maybe have had everything happen over a few months instead of such a short period of time like a month. I'm not one to believe a love story as much if it's only over a month, slightly cheesy and less believable because of that. Regardless I still loved it, great job per usual DGS!
  • Bravo!!

    The fourth and final installment of this series is a fast-paced, tear-jerker,undreamable, drama, and sprinkled in with some romance book. I absolutely loved this book and sad to see it end but it was done so well that it doesn't leave the reader hanging at the end of the book. I'm still in shock of some of the events that took place in the book. You are in for a ride!! It is truly a work of masterpiece. Bravo Denise!!
  • Can’t even with this book

    I loved this book and stayed up way to late reading trying to get to a place where I wouldn’t have nightmares. There was a point that every creak my house made had me jumping. Well done...

    This is the perfect ending to the Magnolia Steele series. All the loose ends are tied up - the mysteries are solved, and after a life of turmoil and apprehension, Maggie gets her HEA. This book is really an emotional roller coaster ride. I am sorry the series has ended, but love that Denise shared Magnolia Steele with us.
