About this ebook

Meet Sage Field, accountant turned nanny, as the romantic comedic mystery series from USA Today bestselling author Melissa F. Miller continues.

 Sage Field loves being a nanny for the children of PGA golfer Chip Moore. But when Chip is implicated in the murder of a rival golfer and loses his endorsement contracts, the Moores are going to have to cut costs—and Sage's job is on the chopping block. 

Sage convinces Roman Lyman, Chip's caddy, to help her clear their boss's name and save their jobs. They unearth a secret that's been hidden for a quarter of a century, discover a box of cash, and stumble onto a blackmail scheme. In the process, Sage discovers that Roman's been keeping some secrets of his own. 

Sage and Roman will be lucky to save their lives, let alone their jobs.

AudioBook Review: Stars: Overall 3 Narration 2 Story 3 The second Field sister, Sage, is a nanny that loves her job, the kids she cares for and the fact that she’s able to help her sisters in supporting her parents. But, all is not well, and when Sage’s boss is the suspect in a murder (one she knows he didn’t commit) and has lost endorsements and the income from it as a professional golfer, she’s soon to be out of a job. Knowing that your boss is innocent and proving it are two entirely different things: and with the only other person willing to help is her boss’s caddy Roman, perhaps things will become clearer. Like the first book (Rosemary’s Gravy) the plot is fast-paced and lively, often at the expense of character development. The banter is fun and lively, and Sage’s feelings for the children and concern for the Moore’s is apparent, even as it was more tell than show. Roman was a bit of a difficult character to attach to, and his secrets seemed to add to that remove, even as Sage often missed those obvious clues. When you add in long-buried secrets, blackmail, a stash of cash and the revolving cast of secondary characters, the path to the culprit wasn’t as direct but still obvious. It’s lighthearted, no-stress reading that is perfect for an afternoon: candyfloss reading for that urge for something entertaining. Narration for this book is again provided by Vanessa Daniels, and I can’t help but be disappointed: my hopes for improvement in performance went unfulfilled, and while I do have the third in this series to review, I don’t know that I can push through another. Odd hesitations, muddled tones, limited distinction in voice for different characters and pacing that was uneven with no apparent relationship to the text left me frustrated, with a need to replay and review several moments. I would suggest that those wanting a lighthearted and youthful mystery without any major angst read, not listen to this series. I received an AudioBook copy of the title from Tantor Audio for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
