Summary
In this page-turning novel set in the Depression-era South, New York Times bestselling author Mary Monroe transports readers to a small Alabama town where home is not always a sanctuary, and two neighboring families let pleasantries mask increasing resentment. . . Bootlegging was Milton and Yvonne Hamilton's ticket out of poverty, prison time, and plain bad luck. Now they've moved on-to a bigger, richer pool of clientele-right in their own respectable new middle-class backyard. And their growing friendship with seemingly-perfect couple Joyce and Odell Watson is proving golden in more ways than one . . . As Milton soon learns, Odell is hiding an outside family and dubious business dealings. It's the perfect recipe for a blackmail scheme that will help Milton hide his own dirty secrets-even from Yvonne. Better yet, he can take ever more dangerous risks to ace out his liquor-smuggling rivals-and add a lucrative temptation to his illicit services. And Yvonne, emboldened by her husband's new gravy train, delights in tormenting Joyce about everything the snobbish matron doesn't have-especially children. But even a winning hand can be played too far. Pushed past their limits, Odell and Joyce will play on Milton's careless boasting-to get him and Yvonne out of their lives for good. And soon, a devastating frame-up will plunge one couple into a living nightmare-and set the stage for explosive retribution . . .

A great continuation of One House Over, those darn Odell, Willie-Frank, Milton are something else. I can't just talk about the men, the women Yvonne and Joyce are a handful too. Blackmail, lies, blackmail, stealing and more blackmail.Those crooks, and hypocrites battling one another but both are just as bad as the other. Never a dull moment and can't wait until the next book in the series. Mary Monroe did it again, her books never disappoint me. #book23of2019 #bookworm #whatsnext #highlyrecommended #amustread

I had been waiting for the second part to this series. It was great hearing Joyce and Milton’s side of the story, since the first book told Joyce and Odell’s side. Looking forward to the 3rd installation to find out if the secret will be revealed.
