AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' by Jo-Ann Carson

A Reader's Opinion

Another great novel by Jo-Ann Carson!

I love Jo-Ann Carson's heroine Maggy Malone, in the Vancouver Blues Suspense series! Her combination of smarts, feistiness, stubbornness, and courage make her a terrific character. Black Cat Blues sequel Ain't Misbehavin' is fantastic!

Maggy, a blues singer at the Black Cat Blues Bar, witnesses the murder of a politician, which will take her on an emotional and suspenseful ride. We met the two men she loves dearly in the first story, Logan and Hunter, though she loves them for different reasons. Her relationship with Logan is complicated, while with Hunter it's a touch-and-go attachment. Even now, her heart is still torn between the two men, especially when one of them, with his virile chemistry, becomes a devil in disguise. Which one will she choose? A dilemma indeed!

Maggy needs protection after tragedy strikes, but will her friends be able to protect her? Maggy is stubborn and will do what she wants. Will she realize she can't do it alone before it's too late?

Meanwhile, a murderer is still on the prowl and looking for his next victim. Will he target Maggy? You won't be disappointed if you follow her wild adventures!

Jo-Ann Carson has become my favorite writer of mystery-suspense novels.

Her stories are thrilling, fast-paced, and romantic while also including humorous and sad moments.

She nicely intertwined her main characters, Maggy, Logan, Hunter, into a tale of captivating suspense. Beware, you won't be able to put it down!
