A viral Ebook Miss Match In many ways, not much has changed in Allie Fortune’s life since she met FBI agent Jack O’Connor and they partnered together to successfully close a major case. She’s still the only female private investigator in New York City, still has tense dinners with her parents every Wednesday night, and she’s till searching for her lost love David Rubeneski, missing in action since the end of the war. When Jack calls asking for her help, she knows the situation is serious – Maggie, the woman who turned him down years before, has written from divided Berlin needing help. Armed with only a cryptic letter and no idea of the danger Maggie is in, Allie and Jack travel to Berlin determined to save her life. But Allie has a side mission to complete – her mother has charged her with finding a priest in the war-ravaged city and delivering a mysterious gift. Between her mother’s request and the threats closing in around Maggie and her secrets, Allie is shocked when the current investigation rips open old wounds from her own past. With more than her life and the lives of her friends at stake, Allie must navigate the dangerous world of international espionage if she’s to have a chance to lay the past to rest and move on with her life. The best way I can describe Sara Mills’ writing is that it’s like film noir on the page. I’ve been on a film noir viewing kick lately, and watching classics like Laura, I Wake Up Screaming, and The Dark Corner proved to be perfect viewing complements to Sara’s rich, atmospheric storytelling. The way past and present collide in Miss Match is one of the novel’s greatest strengths. I love how Mills takes each character’s secrets and forces them to confront their fears in the light of present danger. Allie is as smart and engaging as she was in her debut, but since meeting Jack, a guy who genuinely values her friendship and her rather unorthodox job skill set, she’s begun to open up. Kudos to Mills for creating such a fantastic investigative team in Allie and Jack – theirs is a genuine, rewarding friendship based on mutual respect and understanding. But emotional risk and self-reflective moments are not always welcome or easy to endure, as proven when Allie discovers a shocking secret about her mother’s past that forces her to re-evaluate her own character and prejudices. Miss Match is the perfect blend of post-war intrigue and mystery, the ideal read for anyone who appreciates the tone and storytelling style of classic film noir. A page-turning tale mystery, faith, and second chances, I only hope that one day not too far in the future we’ll get a third Allie Fortune mystery to continue Miss Match’s KILLER cliffhanger.

  9. Didn t like this one, and won t read another of her books Too much romance and not enough mystery and mayhem for me There was an unfinished ending to the story, and Mills ended this story with such abruptness that the book didn t seem finished, but I don t even care to find out how it was resolved


  10. The second book in the Allie Fortune series This one was as good as the first one It wrapped up the story very nicely, however I do wish that Mills would have written just a little dialogue at the end I was not at all ready for it to end when it did I m hoping that this means that she will write another one in the series I would love to read Allie Fortune books


  11. I read this for a book talk at a time when my reading choices were not entirely my own lol This was an enjoyable new mystery series, though, with a film noir feel I may be snagged Wouldn t be surprised if Miss Allie Fortune found herself on my bedstand again in the future.


  12. There s no book 3 I need to know if Allie finds David Do they make it out of Soviet territory.It s been 5 years since this book came out I hate it when books end like that That s why I usually buy most of a series before I start to read it.


  13. Book 2 in the Allie Fortune female private investigator mysteries First book is Miss Fortune probably best to read it first, but the second book reads well without it Set after WWII in New York Germany Good suspense, good description of the aftermath of war on people, love interest.


  14. The book started out so slow I almost gave up But about halfway through it picked up and I couldn t put it down until I had finished it WHERE IS THE THIRD BOOK this author is a pro with cliff hangers


  15. I enjoyed this book right up to the last page Felt the ending left a little bit to be desired Very much a film noire feel to the entire book Very descriptive.I felt like the end left many questions unanswered.


  16. I couldn t get into this book Not only was it in a time I m not familiar with, now it is in a place I am not familiar with I cheated and read the end, so I read the rest of the book to get there Now I feel like I ll have to read the next book too.







  17. Well This was a wonderful sequel to Miss Fortune But, I am distressed because the book ended on a huge cliff hanger, and now I have to wait to find out what happens ARG
