What Happened On Beale Street By Mary Ellis

What Happened on Beale Street is an exciting addition to the Secrets of the South Mysteries from bestselling author Mary Ellis. These standalone, complex crime dramas follow a private investigator's quest to make the world a better place...solving one case at a time.
A cryptic plea for help from a childhood friend sends cousins Nate and Nicki Price from New Orleans to Memphis, the home of scrumptious barbecue and soulful blues music. When they arrive at Danny Andre's last known address, they discover signs of a struggle and a lifestyle not in keeping with the former choirboy they fondly remember.
Danny's sister, Isabelle, reluctantly accepts their help. She and Nate aren't on the best of terms due to a complicated past, yet they will have to get beyond that if they want to save Danny.
On top of Danny's alarming disappearance and his troubled relationship with Isabelle, Nate also has to rein in his favorite cousin's overzealousness as a new and eager PI. Confronted with a possible murder, mystery, and mayhem in the land of the Delta blues, Nate must rely on his faith and investigative experience to keep one or more of them from getting killed.

Book two  in the Secrets of the South Mysteries, but this book can be read as a standalone. Get ready to solve the crime.
What Happened On Beale Street  Is a very good Mystery. This is the second book in Secrets Of The South series. Ellis has done it again with this one. This is a book that can not be put down when you start reading it. The characters Nicki and Nate are really easy characters to love and I am sure you will love them too. The book will keep you guessing throughout it's pages. Every time I thought I had everything in this mystery figured out I was wrong. Ellis wrote a  good mystery with a little romance mixed in.
I gave this book 4.5 stars.  I recommend this book!
I was given a copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review.
