Summary

Finley Knight, ex-cop turned private investigator, lives a lonely, solitary life. She uses her downtime to reflect on the past and wonders what could have been. 

Detective Dee Woodard transferred to Corpus Christi nine years ago to put distance between herself and her ex...an ex she was still in love with. A murder investigation leads her to Moonlight Avenue and Finley Knight. 

Rylee Moore left the windy plains of Amarillo in her rearview mirror, hoping to start over in this city by the bay, only to find employment hard to come by. Finley Knight wasn’t hiring either, but Rylee’s begging and pleading - and not taking “no” for an answer - finally lands her a job. Not as an apprentice, as she wanted, but as the lone employee at Moonlight Avenue Investigations - receptionist. 

After a gruesome third murder, Dee is booted from the case. She joins Finn’s team...the chase bringing them closer and closer to a vicious drug dealer. 

Amongst the chaos, crime, and cover-up...love pokes its head above the water. But can they stay alive long enough to explore it?

Another nice mystery

I loved this book. Cassandra York did a great job of narrating. I wish more of Gerri Hill’s works were available in audio. I do love her stories. Character development is great. I enjoyed the love story interwoven into the mystery or the mystery interwoven into the love story... It’s nice having a story with main characters over the age of 35. Definitely recommend!!!

Good, but not Great like I expect from Gerri Hill

Let me start by saying "Hunter's Way" and "the Secret Pond" are my favorite Gerri Hill audiobooks. Those books were amazing and I listened to them twice. This new book, "Moonlight Avenue" was very good, but not as good as the previously mentioned audiobooks in my opinion. I enjoyed the mystery going on in this book, but something was just missing. I liked all the main characters and the narration was very great... maybe it's how the main characters met? I prefer a slow build up. Anyway, this is still a good mystery book with lesbians and guns. If you've already read "Hunter's Way" and "the Secret Pond", why not try this newer Gerri Hill book.

Not Bad

I'm not usually a big fan of the author's mystery stories but this one was a little above some of the previous books. I really liked the Rylee character and I would be interested in a book featuring her as the central protagonist.

Great Mystery!!

I have a few of Gerri Hill's audiobooks and paperbacks.
I really enjoy her writing style and her character's. They are character's you fall in love with.
Finley's, an ex-cop turned P.I. usually has small cases referred to her through contracts with businesses to perform background checks on new hires. She also gets a lot of cheating spouse surveillance cases. Fin, not one for one night stands, meets Rylee at a bar and the attraction and pull toward one another is unlike anything they have ever experienced. Rylee wakes up in a hotel room with Fin, panics and leaves quietly. Rylee looking for work goes to a P.I.s office begging for work. Just happens it's Fin's business. Both skirt around that one night and don't talk about it both thinking it meant nothing to the other. Even though Rylee has no P.I. experience Fin can't turn her away. A case of a cheating spouse turns into so much more and body count starts to add up. The why and what those willing to kill for is the mystery. Dee is Fin's good friend who is still on the police force and is working on the first murder when her Captain starts pulling her back and having her newer partner take the lead. It is quite the ride!!
You won't want to stop listening!! The narrator did a wonderful job with all the characters in this book!!

Not what I've come to expect from Gerri Hill

I was disappointed. The narrator was fine but I just couldn't connect with the characters. i think there were maybe 2 sex scenes. They were so brief I suppose I could have missed one.
I've been a huge Gerri Hill fan for many years so it won't detour me from buying the next one.
I do think I'll go back to reading them before listening to them on audible. Maybe that'll make a difference.

A Detective All Alone

A smashing noir private detective story with all the fun included-- murder, mysterious strangers, rich characters, good cops and bad, illicit rendezvous, all set in the subtropical Gulf of Mexico city of Corpus Christi, TX. I enjoyed it very very much!
