Something sinister is going on at Bay Radio. Is it possible there’s a connection between the mafia-type men who show up after dark, the terrified young women they have in tow, and the ominous commune Scarlet’s sister calls home?

A troubled caller’s cryptic clues point to a man from Scarlet’s past. Could he be the key to breaking her sister, Violet, out of a seemingly impene

Carla Johnson-Hicks
This is the second Scarlet Oaks book I have read and I enjoyed it, but found it to be overly long. I am a lover of cozy mysteries, and enjoy them for many reasons, one being that they are relatively quick reads. This book has all the elements I love in cozies such as great amateur sleuths, small town or communities, quirky characters, pets or animals, great mystery and fun.

Scarlet Oaks is a radio personality that has quite a following. She has taken her radio call in show and totally revamped i

**4.5 Stars**

Keep in mind that this is the second book in a series that needs to be read in order. This book takes place right after the first one and the events from the first book trigger the plot here.

This sequel was much more romantic of than the first one. We get to see James and Scarlet's relationship unfold in sweet, slow detail and it was so cute. I also need to mention that James is basically the perfect guy, giving support in all situations, willing to go along with all the crazy that

Rating 4.5 Stars

This is the second book in the Scarlett Oaks series. I would strongly recommend reading the first book, Scarlett Oaks and the Serial Caller, before picking up book #2. There are many references to characters and situations from the first book that would be confusing if you didn’t have all the information.

Once again, I really enjoyed Scarlett, her friends and family. The author has created quirky and fun characters, along with some naughty and nasty villains. Scarlett’s not quite

Disclaimer: I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by LW Media Group Ltd. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

This book was definitely darker than the first one, and it has some disturbing topics on girls being held against their will in a commune. While there isn’t any word on whether or not these girls are being sexually assaults in that commune or anything of that nature from wha

At 12 hours and 30 minutes long, this was definitely a story within a story within a story. Following on from where book one finished, Scarlet and Sylvia now have a new, larger studio to match their larger audience. Their show, Mending Men, has changed and now includes experts to give advice to men on legal and family matters - from divorce and alimony to grief counselling. 

When Scarlet gets a call warning her that she needs to look into a matter concerning someone she knows, thoughts immediatel

I enjoyed this book. It started a bit slowly which is why it only gets a four star for the story. Other than that I enjoyed it, I liked the characters and the family drama, it's nice many of the characters from the previous book play apart in this book too. The books can be read as a stand alone book but this one does continue from where book one left of and does name the killer from that book, so might give away spoilers if you haven't had the pleasure of enjoying it. The unusual setting of wor ...more

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This is book 2 of the Scarlet Oaks Cosy Mysteries series. Scarlets family is dysfunctional. Her sister Violet is living in a commune and when a late night caller to Scarlet's radio show Mending Men hints that the people in that place may not be there of her own free will... our amateur P.I. realizes its up to her and her scooby gang to get off to the gadget spy shop so they can to investigate these r ...more

Book two in this fun series. This book could be read as a stand-alone but you get so much more out of it if you read Scarlet Oaks and the Serial Killer first in my opinion. Once again it is the same cast of characters and they are so much fun and funny. Michaela James does a great job of developing the characters and bringing them to life. At times the book was a little long in the tooth for me but not to the point that I didn't want to continue. I just love mysteries and wanted to get on with t ...more

Again, like the first book, this story is slightly roundabout and very long winded. I enjoy the characters and the plot but my main beef is that many segments seem so drawn out I get bored. I’m all for sleuthing but this is comical in how drawn out things can get.

Parents: this is probably ok for mature teens... there’s mention of intimacy and adult photography and prostitution. Not much in the way of language and certainly no Fbombs.

Overall it was a good time-filler read and I will read the thir

Scarlet and her gang are back solving mysteries. Missing family members, cryptic messages and strange events at the radio station all warrant investigation and they are on the case.
This is a fast paced cozy with a lot of humor, witty dialogue and a touch of romance. There is also a darker side to the case they need to solve which adds an edgier twist.
I enjoyed getting to know Scarlet and her friends and family in book one. Book two expands on the characters and answers some lingering questions.

Scarlet's sister Violet is stuck in a commune and Scarlet is trying to find her and rescue her. Scarlet's new boyfriend James gets a crash course into Scarlet's sleuthing and helps out too. Kind of a long drawn out book to get to the end. It wasn't a typical cozy mystery. I received an ARC and I voluntarily reviewed this book. ...more

A rip roaring fabulous story!

I loved this book, I became so engrossed with the whole group, I felt a sense of loss when the end arrived!

This second edition is just as exciting as the first. The development of the main and supporting characters just make you even more immersed in this world.

Scarlet Oaks is a fabulous on air DJ focusing on Mending Men and while she's at it she mends or rather meddles in cases that come to her. Case in point - a woman pretending to be a man calls into her men's radio show to ask for help / give her a warning. This causes Scarlet and her band of equally wonderful friends to solve the case - and this one is so close to home since it involves her siblings. I love the dynamic found within these pages / listen. The narrator did a great job and the author ...more
