There ’ s a reason The Echo Killing was a fan favorite book, and A Beautiful Corpse is its much-anticipated follow-up.

Everyone ’ s favorite crime reporter, Harper McClain, is back.

Murders don ’ t happen downtown, though.

Overall, Harper McClain is a champion of a main character, and wherever Christi Daugherty takes this character and series, I will follow.

It is a year since the events of The Echo Killing and Harper McClain is back doing what she does best at the newspaper.

Alle gets into the investigation and learns that there is another suspect, who has strong connections in town.

She had a rough start to life- that you learn all about in The Echo Killing.

I look forward to learning more about her as the series continues.Thanks to Harper Collins UK and Netgalley for my advanced copy of this novel to read.

4.5 StarsThis book is book 2 in the Harper McClain series and works very well as a stand-alone novel but do yourself a avor and read The Echo Killing first.

It will provide background information on many of the haracters in this book plus, it 's an wesome read! Harper McClain in hanging out at the Library Bar with her friend Kate, when a call comes in that there has been a shooting nearby in a high tourist area.

As aomi 's father and the city demands answers, Harper is pulled into the investigation and tries to track down a killer while at the same time, dealing with possible break ins at her apartment and the emotions that she has for Luke, a former friend, and now one of the detectives investigating Naomi 's murder.The Author is a former journalist who covers murders and puts her experience and knowledge into her boo.

By doing so she has created a very quirky and realist book that not only details Harper 's job as a journalist covering crime, investigative journalism and police procedures while investigating murders.

I love that Harper is a wea and intelligent character.

Jillian had worked part time as a bartender with Bonnie at The Library Bar. She was beautiful, ambitious and compassionate, a promising law student, with a oyfriend, Wilson Shepherd.

This is a big story and Harper investigates, only this turns out to be a thorny and complex dangerous investigation.Harper carries the scars and nightmares of previous events that ended in her being shot, and led to her being considered a pariah by Savannah PD, as she nailed a highly respected killer from their own ranks.

Wilson Shepherd turns out to be not the only suspect in Naomi 's killing, there is the grandfather of the DA, and looking into him carries the inherent risks of taking on the most formidabl of forces in town.

STOP THE PRESSES HARPER IS BACK! This is the penultimate essa in the Harper McClain reporter procedural series.

Christi Daugherty has definitely not disappointed, this was another exceptional read.Still not sure if reporter procedural is a kind, but it certainly should be because this is One heck of a series!

Once again Harper finds her self reporting on a crime with a personal tie.

Top all of this off with the assertio that everyone is stalking Harper.

gave it

There are three suspects: her fianc, who has a criminal past, her bosse, who had stalked another bartender two years ago, and the district attorney 's son, who Naomi had dated until their relationship ended in acrimony.

The pressure is on Harper to go beyond the murder.

omeone familiar and dangerous is watching Harper 's every move.Harper is still getting a frosty reception from Savannah 's police department after trying to solve her mother 's murdere.
