Lily Bard has started over in the quiet town of Shakespeare, Arkansas, as a cleaning lady. She works out her anger and the pain of her past with martial arts. For Lily, the gym is a place to get away from her troubles, not find more of them. But when she stumbles on the corpse of a local bodybuilder, his neck broken with a barbell, the town's underlying racial tensions begin to boil over. The white victim was connected to two unsolved murders of black residents in Shakespeare, and a dogged policeman is determined to stop the killing. Lily may have to decide whether to stay and fight for justice, or run away one more time.

3.0
My thoughts on this book are similar to the last. I wasn't crazy about the book (though it was OK) and it moves slower than I'd expect a 200 page mystery to move. I think the issue is, after two books, I still don't really like Lily or feel invested in her. Hopefully book three has more to offer tha...
