    1. The second in the Samantha Newman series, and what I hope will generate a third story, we pick up where we were in the first book though one could read this one without having enjoyed THE BODY BUSINESS As with the first book, I agreed to provide an honest review this book after meeting and chatting with the author at a Chanticleer Authors conference earlier this year.In this tale, Samantha is looking for a new job, has yet to come to terms with her attraction to cyber sleuth Carter Chapman, and [...]

    7. 4.5 5.0Readers who are not fans of first person stories will be swayed to the dark side, and absolutely love this one Read full review in the 2017 March issue of InD tale Magazine.


    8. Goodthe story shows how a death and whether is accidental or murder becomes one sorta events after an other.a good read.


    9. The stand out in this story is definitely the characters, their rich make up creates an engaging and interesting story.I haven t read book one, and while I was still able to enjoy this book as a standalone, it was very clear that I was missing a lot of backstory and that knowing the backstory would make a difference So if you haven t already, I recommend that you get book one first.The mystery aspect of this story was well done, there were lots of possible suspects and it wasn t obvious who the [...]


    10. The Body Next Door Gay YellenThis is book two in this series Unfortunately I haven t read listened to the first book I wasn t familiar with any of the characters or the original story line Samantha Newman is in need of a fresh start, the reasons why were supposed to have been explained in book one A possible murder next door, a boyfriend that is mysterious, and a cast of interesting characters keep the listener in suspense There were plenty of twists to make you wonder who did it and why.The nar [...]
