What Sinister Secrets Lurk in the Shadows of Yesterday?
Natchez, Mississippi—Private Investigator Nate Price and his new wife, Isabelle, need a vacation. Their coworkers generously team up to surprise them with a belated honeymoon…but the happy trip turns sour when Izzy spies her ex-husband, who appears to have taken up his gambling addiction once again.
While the boss is away, Price Investigations remains in the hands of Beth Kirby, a former police officer, and Michael Preston, a former forensic accountant. Hardly a dream team, as Beth resents working with a man who has no experience in his new job.
But Beth and Michael must move past their differences if they hope to uncover the truth behind a beloved Southern preacher’s demise. The preacher’s widow suspects foul play, despite the evidence indicating suicide.
With tension escalating between these investigators and local law enforcement—and new threats arising on all sides—how will Beth, Michael, and Nate hold on to faith and bring the truth to light?

"Ellis's great strength is her characterization. She never goes for the 'stock' character or situation, always surprising the reader with plot twists and surprising insights in human nature. As I believe I said in my last review of her books in this series, the only trouble with being a fan of her books is waiting for the next one--good thing she's so prolific!"
—Laurie Kingery, author of The Deep In the Heart Historical Romance
"Very good book. Nice and upbeat. Good characters. I really enjoyed it."
"Once again Mary Ellis has reached out and grabbed me on the first page of her new novel Magnolia Moonlight and kept me riveted until the book's completion. Somehow she combines intrigue, romance, and humor and makes it all blend wonderfully."
