Once again Cynthia Hamilton delivers a great story. In A High Price to Pay (Madeline Dawkins Mysteries Book 2) we follow the continuing story of Madeline Dawkins. Now the proud owner of her own detective agency we follow Madeline on an exciting journey. Not only does her past come back to haunt her but the double jeopardy of a new case lands on her plate. That rapidly becomes a triple play. I loved watching the evolution of Madeline in this story and I love how her partner Mike is all about her. This one was a page turner for sure and you will not be disappointed.

A High Price to Pay (Madeline Dawkins Mysteries Book 2) by Cynthia Hamilton is the follow up book to Spouse Trap, it does refer back to some of the events in that book so I would recommend that readers make sure that they have read it first to fully appreciate the story. In A High Price to Pay, Madeline has recently received her P.I licence and, along with her friend and colleague Mike, are ready to start taking cases. Unfortunately for Madeline her first case is a bit close to home. The mother in law of her biggest client from her event planning business asks her to investigate some missing items from her home. However, the case is not as clear cut as it first seems. At the same time a threat from Madeline’s past has resurfaced and it making his ominous presence known. Madeline is not only facing the toughest case of her career so far; she is also watching over her shoulder in fear of her safety. I thoroughly enjoyed this book; I love the development of the characters and the twists in the story. Perfect for anyone who likes a good mystery.

These books are kickass! I’m obsessed with Cynthia Hamilton’s writing in the way she captures Madeline’s life. Performing two jobs at the same time, private eye and event coordinator, Madeline is at a weekend-long birthday party for a movie director’s wife when she must track down not only the family’s jewels but also track down a murderer. Madeline works beside the local police department where she finds there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to her clients.
If that’s not enough, Madeline’s old abductor was released after striking a deal with the feds. Lionel Usherwood is on the path for revenge, if she doesn’t have enough on her plate as it is as Lionel already killed Rick Yeoman but now Lionel is out for Madeline’s blood next.
This book is filled with mystery, action, and suspense all in one! Great read: Original story, entertaining, and realistic.

A High Price To Pat ( Madeline Sawkins #2) by Cynthia Hamilton. This is the second book in the Madeline Dawkins Series. This book was filled with mystery and danger throughout the pages. You won’t be able to put it down until you are finished. I love how Madeline has grown and it was great seeing her develop. I look forward to many more books by Ms. Hamilton.

This story begins with Madeline and Mike going through with their PI firm plans. Since they are just starting out, Madeline is still working as an event coordinator. However, the current job she is working needs both of her jobs in order to be successful. She must not only pull off an amazing birthday party for the wife of an actor…she also needs to find some missing jewels and, eventually, solve a murder. And then an old enemy makes a return….but you have to read it to know how it all pans out!

I feel that Madeline is less whiny and afraid in this book compared to the previous one. It’s like she found her self-confidence and I love it. These books are out of my usual genre of reading…but I have found myself really enjoying this series. I am keeping Cynthia Hamilton on my list of author’s to look for when I am searching for new books.

A High Price To Pay is the second book in the Madeline Dawkins series. If you haven’t already I would definitely recommend reading the first book in the series beforehand.
Madeline is back working as an events coordinator, but also trying to get her PI business off the ground with her friend and partner Mike. Madeline is a great main character, she’s strong and feisty, yet real and vulnerable too. She has suffered in the past, which she is still coming to terms with, but it just makes her more relatable.
Like the first book this story is full of action to keep you hooked and wanting to find out what happens next. The story is full of tense moments and mysteries to be solved. The characters all have a lot of substance to them which I love, and you can tell the author has done a lot of research which really pays off in the details of the story which really bring it to life.
Looking forward to reading the next instalment.

Madeline’s dual professions as event coordinator and private investigator cross paths during the most lavish affair of her career—a weekend-long 40th birthday extravaganza for the wife of a famous film director.

Madeline’s dual professions as event coordinator and private investigator cross paths during the most lavish affair of her career—a weekend-long 40th birthday extravaganza for the wife of a famous film director. As the party draws near, a simple background check after the disappearance of precious family jewels quickly turns into a murder investigation, and before Madeline and Mike can put the pieces together, another body turns up.

Adding to Madeline’s already overflowing plate, the D.A. informs her that Rick Yeoman, one of the men who had abducted her three years earlier, has been released from prison after cutting a deal with the Feds. Besides fearing reprisals from the man she helped to convict, his parole also triggers the reappearance of soulless Lionel Usherwood, lured out of his hideaway by the call of revenge. When Yeoman’s body surfaces in Lake Cachuma, Usherwood moves on to the next target: Madeline.

A High Price to Pay is the second novel in the Madeline Dawkins series.

Cynthia Hamilton turned to writing while fighting a mystery illness that went misdiagnosed for nine years. Forgetting that she couldn’t write if her life depended on it, she wrote her first book in secret, just in case it didn’t amount to anything. Nineteen years later, she has written twelve books and published ten of them. She writes general fiction and mystery-suspense novels, as well as some non-fiction. “Once Upon A Lyme…A Tale of Two Journey” documents her harrowing odyssey through late-stage Lyme disease and the unexpected upside of becoming a writer. The Patience of Karma—her latest novel—is the fifth book in her Madeline Dawkins Mystery Series.

by Cynthia Hamilton

This book was an awesome read. This story had many twists and turns and what I really enjoyed about it was that there were multiple events happening at the same time. I was very impressed with how it kept me engrossed and entertained throughout and how it all came together in the end. This is the second book in this series and I have to say I held high expectations from the first book and I’m happy to say this one met my expectations. Madeline has grown and changed in some ways in this story and I’m excited for you to experience it. I highly recommend this book.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A High Price to Pay is the second book in Cynthia Hamilton’s Madeline Dawkins series that provides us with suspense and excitement that leaves us at the edge of our seat until we get to the end! You can read it as a standalone but I would recommend to start with the first book as you will want to know how it all started and how Madeline becomes the woman (and the PI) she is today!
Madeline and Mike have ‘graduated’ from their PI internship and they start their own firm. Maddie is combining her two careers – event coordinator and PI. In the midst of Maddie organizing the most lavish weekend long birthday bash for Hollywood set she needs to solve two murders and also deal with her past when the madman she testified against and helped to put behind the bars gets out on parole …
It is a great story with characters that leave an impression and you will keep looking for the next story!
