Overall Grade: 4.5 ⭐️
Skye Warren’s second book in her One for the Money series, Two for the Show, quite honestly was surprising. There is an emotional gravitas to this story that had begun to infiltrate the first book of this series, One for the Money. Given that this second book starts where the first one left off AND ends with another complicated cliffhanger, I can’t divulge, or rather, I don’t want to reveal any of the book’s plot points in this review. Let me tell you what you should know for WHY you should read this story and its trilogy:
- Eva Morelli is my favorite Morelli in the Midnight Dynasty universe. The Morellis have been problematic due to their upbringing, but Eva is intelligent and compassionate. She’s a natural caretaker and infuses this heart into her relationship with Finn. She doesn’t coddle him; she sees him and speaks into his worry.
- Finn has more character dimensions in this book. It was burgeoning in the series’ first book, but it finds greater depth in this story. His familial history is problematic; Skye Warren uses his character development to underscore a message about hope. Finn and Eva dance back and forth over the idea of living with hope. Finn prefers to expect the worst, while Eva challenges him to dream of a different outcome. The message of hope is heavy throughout Two for the Show, elevating this trilogy.
- Two for the Show’s ending is complicated. One moment, Eva’s hope is born, and the next, drama challenges that hope. This space is where Warren leaves her readers. It’s engaging and creates a ravenous interest for the next book in this series. I cannot wait for the rest of Finn and Eva’s journey.
If you’ve spent any amount of time with the Morelli’s in the Midnight Dynasty universe, Skye Warren’s One for the Money series is a MUST READ. Whether you pick up Two for the Show now or later when the trilogy is complete, it doesn’t matter. Simply grab it and dive into Finn and Eva’s delicious drama.
In love and romance,
