A High Price to Pay (The Madeline Dawkins Series Book 2) by Cynthia Hamilton is a mystery that will take you on an elaborate ride which will spin your imagination while shifting your belief in which direction this story will go. Madeline is a highly capable women in the most realistic of ways despite events that have unfolded within her life. Cynthia Hamilton is impressive with her detailed story line and character development. The sequence of events as that occur are fine tuned, multi-dimensional, and beautifully done. This story kept me engaged wondering which way the author was leading the character(s) next. Amazingly done.

A High Price to Pay (The Madeline Dawkins Series Book 2) by Cynthia Hamilton
A High Price to Pay is the second Book in The Madeline Dawkins Series and I will highly suggest reading the first book in this series if you haven’t already. I found myself again lost in the pages and at times I was on the edge of my seat trying to put the pieces together to figure out what happens next. Find out what happens when a background check turns into much more. Will they figure out who is behind it? I truly enjoyed this book as much as the first one. Madeline and Mike are amazing characters that at times I felt like I was right there with them. I highly recommend reading this book. You won’t be disappointed I know I wasn’t. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

Madeline Dawkins is back. She has escaped her ex-husband and his goons, in fact, they are in jail with hopefully no chance of ever getting out. Of course, that is not to be! Madeline has once again learned that she is tough and smart. With the help of Mike and some unlikely other characters, it’s time to show the bad guy just how tough she is.

I have once again enjoyed the adventure of Madeline Dawkins. I was on the edge of my seat wondering how everything would turn out. Cynthia Hamilton has an easy to read style which made it hard to put this book down. I love the way this story has a mystery inside of another mystery. Lots of action so there is never a boring moment.

Madeline’s character shows growth and potential in just these first two books. I can’t wait to see where Hamilton takes her. This book is part of a series so it is best to read them in order.

A High Price to Pay by Cynthia Hamilton is the second book in The Madeline Dawkins series. Madeline is back and she is thriving in her new professions as an event planner and private investigator. What starts as an event she is planning becomes something more complex. With the help of Mike, they are following the clues. Will they figure out the mystery?
I enjoyed this book and recommend reading them in order because of the character backstories and development from the first book. It is great to see how Madeline continues to change and grow in confidence and as a person. The story is well written and interesting. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series to see where Madeline is taken on her next mystery.

A High Price to Pay is Book 2 In the series and picks up 3 years after book 1. Madeline and Mike have successfully completed what was needed to become licensed PI’s. They are also running a party planning business. Madeline is planning the party of the year for a fortieth birthday to a high profile client. She is earning every dollar she makes on this case. Cherie Alexander has quite a few melt downs and now with the party here, they are more frequent. As the weekend approaches, Cherie’s mother In law ( Ms Story ) hired Madeline to locate some missing jewelry.
Everyone thought Teresa has stolen the pieces so a background check is run on her. Unfortunately, they do not have the correct info on Teresa.

All of this is happening while a madman is on the loose after Madeline. She tries to keep herself busy with Cherie’s party and Miss Story’s case but, no matter how busy she keeps herself, things are still happening to remind her that he is still tailing her.

The night of Cherie’s party someone is murdered at the mansion. Who could have pulled it off with so many people there and cameras in the house?

Madeline and Mike are hard at work to find the killer. So much suspense is in this book. It’s a great addition the to series. Madeline is one tough cookie.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A High Price to Pay by Cynthia Hamilton is the second book in the Madeline Dawkins series. I would definitely recommend reading this series in order as it follows the same characters. This book is full of mystery and intrigued as well as a complex story line.
I felt like I connected more with Madeline in this story than I did the first. This book felt like were out of the “get to know you period” and we were seeing the person Madeline is. It is great character development and has left me interested to see what else is to come from her.
The story was great as well. Although there were times when I felt like a little bit of the detail could have been condensed it was a well thought out story. It was action packed and kept me on my toes. I can’t wait to see what is next for this series.

Another great story by this author and a wonderful addition to a series that I am thoroughly enjoying so far! I really liked reading about Madeline, she seemed a little different in this story too which I liked. Again I felt like I was living the story with Madeline and guessing right along with her. There were a few twists and turns which kept me interested in the story all the way through. I did find the story a little repetitive at times however I still really enjoyed it. I do feel like there is so much more to Madeline as a character so I hope there is more to come from this series and the characters in it.
A High Price to Pay was an enjoyable read and one that I highly recommend!

This is absolutely a must read book and series. Intrigue, mystery, wonderful characters, rich detail. I couldn’t read the book fast enough. I was so immersed that I couldn’t tear myself away. Hamilton does a beautiful job weaving this story and building upon the first book. Absolutely loved it.

5 out of 5 stars

The story A High Price to Pay (The Madeline Dawkins Series Book 2) by Cynthia Hamilton is an amazing book to read and had me on the edge of my seat. It is a page-turner that will have you wondering what will happen next. I love how the story is written in such a way that I felt like I was right there with Madeline and her partner Mike every step they took. What starts out as a simple background check because of missing jewels turns into an investigation into murder. Will they find the one who is guilty? There is also a threat that appears from the past. There is an atmosphere of suspense that I felt when reading this book. Madeline is such a wonderful character as she is strong, independent, and has a fierce determination to find the guilty party. She is one that looks at all angles when working a case. I also loved reading about her partner, Mike. He is Madeline’s best friend and business partner. He is also very protective of Madeline and goes to great lengths to make sure she is safe. There is also the character of Lionel Usherwood who has a need for revenge. His has made Madeline his next target. Don’t miss out on a thrilling book that takes you on a ride that doesn’t end until the final page. I would highly recommend reading it.

This is the second book in this series, my favorite yet. It is a mystery story that left me turning pages and sitting on the edge of my seat. Madeline was assaulted in the past but now it looks like they are after her again. In the meantime she and her partner, Mike are asked to look into a jewelry theft. She is a strong character that needs to learn to open up. The secondary characters are a great support to her and add to the story. I highly recommend reading this mystery.
