"Easy to read, well researched and full of great discussion points for any book club, Mary Ellis' novels should not be missed."
—Carrie C. Wolfgang, Novel Destination-Used Book Emporium
"Author Mary Ellis is fast becoming my favorite mystery/suspense author!... With Ellis's skillful writing, characters and settings come alive, both main and secondary characters as well as the historic hotel's backstory."
—Laurie Kingery, author of Hill Country Courtship
"I have nothing but praise for this fast-paced, superbly written story that combines suspense, romance, and faith. "
—Susan Simpson, author
"Mary Ellis does a good job of making this story stand on its own."
"I enjoyed the book very much."
"I thought I knew exactly how it would end, but Mary Ellis seems to be able to surprise me to the very last page. The suspense makes this hard, if not impossible, to stop reading once you start. I see more stories coming with this wonderful cast of characters and I am curious where we will travel to next."
From the Author
While traveling through the South I became fascinated with the birth of the blues in rural Mississippi. I followed the "Blues Trail" to Beale Street in the heart of Memphis, a city which has enjoyed a fabulous rebirth in the last forty years. I decided to craft a story about a talented musician trying to put his faith into action in the after-hours clubs of the inner city.

Top Customer Reviews
Nick Price, a seasoned private investigator and his cousin,
Nicki Price, a novice investor head to Memphis after a
phone call from a friend in trouble.
The description is vivid, lively, detailed....you can smell
the foods, hear the music blaring and enjoy all the beautiful
sights both in and outside the hotel.
Arriving at the friend,s house, it is discovered in disarray
not what they expected.
Then a dead body is found.....What Happened on Beale
Street is the question of the story????
The characters are well created....the cousins, the friend's
sister, the hotel employees, the hotels' ex-employees, the
homeless shelter employees and members. Even the sinister
characters are realistic and scary.
There turns out to be two mysteries to solve. While Nick
focuses on the murder, Nicki gets involved in a hotel
scavenger hunt from years ago where the " treasure " one
year was never found. The couple who hide it died in an
accident before the hunt and it was never found.
A good, enjoyable read.
I volunteered to read this book. Thanks to the National
Readers' Choice Awards Committee for the book. My
opinion is my own.

I was given a copy of What Happened On Beale Street through the publisher and their partnership with Netgalley in exchange for my honest review:
Nicki price is a partner in a P.I agency in the middle of the night one night she gets a call from Danny Andre after not having heard from him in months. Danny Andre had been her childhood best friend has managed to get himself into some trouble, enough trouble that it scares him and prompts him to call Nikki in the middle of the night. Soon Nicki finds herself heading to Memphis despite not knowing where exactly in Memphis he lives. Eventually Nicki finds herself heading to Memphis with her cousin and head of the P.I agency Nate.
Nicki’s fiancé Hunter insists on footing the bill for this trip including putting her and her cousin up in a luxury hotel
Danny’s sister Izzy goes to his last known address after Nicki calls her to find the place ramsacked with blood in the apartment. Danny is nowhere in sight
Officer Flynn seems to take an immediate dislike to Hunter and Danny. Shortly after a body is found and Nicki and his sister positively I.D it as Danny. The officers are certain its related to drugs but Nicki has no doubt her friend was murdered.
Nicki and Nate set out to prove that Danny did not die of a drug overdose that he was murdered.
Will Nicki and Nate discover what really happened to Danny?
Find out in What Happened on Beale Street.
I give this book five out of five Stars
I love how this book kind of has two mysteries going on instead of one. First the mystery over who killed Danny and why. It was not who I thought it was going to be at all. And then there is the mystery of the hidden jewels in the Carlton. That I found very exciting. And it made a few older people very happy in the process.
I picked this book to read because it was about my hometown. And it did not disappoint me at all. I felt like I was back home while reading this book.
If you want a good mystery or two, I highly recommend this book! It is that good!!
