Blue Magnolia is book two in the Red Farlow Mysteries series and W.F. Ranew is nothing if not consistent in his story-telling and writing style.
While country music and cowboys isn’t necessarily my style, I still found myself intrigued with the mystery and curious enough to keep reading.
Blue Magnolia is chock full of vivid imagery and whiplash plot twists. Fans of mystery genres will really enjoy this on-going series.

Hank Tillman wants nothing more than to be a country singer. Hank performs in bars through out Georgia and Florida. But so far Hank has had no luck with meeting the right people that could make him famous nor has he had a number one hit so to speak. Well not until he writes a song that draws the attention of another group who wants Hank’s song and will go to any link even murder to get their hands on Hank’s song. When Hank refuses to give up the rights to his song it puts his life in danger.
Trouble sort of follows Hank around and sometimes he ends up in jail leaving his cousin Mary Ellen to bail him out. Mary Ellen has been bailing Hank out of trouble for a long while. She understands that it is not always his fault working and singing in bars will lead to trouble on occasion. Mary Ellen wants to help Hank and keep him safe at the same time. Mary Ellen hires PI Red Farlow to keep an eye on Hank and keep him safe.
Blue Magnolia has action, mystery, singing, bars, great characters, and even murder. I really enjoyed reading about all the bars and places Hank sings in as I have visited most of the places. I love reading books with places in them that I know about. It was nice reading a book set in the south. Once I picked up Blue Magnolia I was glued to the pages and racing to the end to see how it all turns out.
I highly recommend Blue Magnolia to anyone who loves a good mystery, thriller book. One click your copy today!
