Product Description

Product Description

Bree Butler shelved her dream of becoming an investigative journalist long ago. But when she finds a young biotech executive dead on his office floor, she begins to think she might have another shot at it – even though she’s a suspect in the homicide investigation. Bree and her old college friend, Detective Gen Delacourt (who we first met in Mark of the Loon), begin a danger-filled quest to unravel the puzzle. The deeper they dig, the more truth about their own personal lives is revealed along with the dead man’s. They’ll both begin again after this is solved … if Bree makes it out alive.

(Previously titled "Rapunzel")

HASH(0xa46ac774) out of 5 stars No Fairy Tale June 21 2014
By Susan Goldin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This second book "Rapunzel" in Molly Greene's Gen Delacourt Mystery Series is leaner compared to book one and three of the series. This reader is not a fan of leaving mystery pieces unexplained and this story introduces plot lines which remain unresolved, a central character who is either a victim of circumstance or a product of dangerous, nasty genetics and family connections and a story which simply leaves a heroine attempting another remarkable escape and time lapses her to a future time and place. It's not satisfying as the reader to be manipulated to fill in those sort of blanks. They feel lazy or gimmicky and rushed. I can recommend book one and three highly. Sorry to admit, nothing will be lost if you skip book two.

HASH(0xa46ac7c8) out of 5 stars A delightful read with plenty of suspense and a lot of heart Dec 11 2013
By Casee Clow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Cambria “Bree” Butler is reeling from a bad break-up and her lost dreams of pursuing a career as an investigative journalist, but her resilient attitude will carry her through the ups and downs of working as a freelance writer in San Francisco’s Bay Area. That is, until she shows up for an interview at the mysterious Elergene Enterprises and finds her interviewee – a young chemical engineer – dead on the floor of his office. After being marked as a suspect in the murder herself, Bree is determined to finally put her journalistic chops to the test and track down the real murderer. Joining her in the unsanctioned investigation is her college friend, sassy lawyer-turned-detective Gen Delacourt. Together, the two women will do what it takes – including evading or assisting the two handsome cops on the case – to unravel the mystery. But when Bree gets close to Elergene’s CEO, the enigmatic Taylor Vonnegon, she’ll have to find her way to the truth with a new target on her back.

I adored Molly Greene’s debut, Mark of the Loon, and I was delighted to find that her talent for crafting engaging fiction has only grown through Rapunzel. Greene is accomplished at creating escapist novels: stories that take us out of our environment and catapult us into a colorful world of mystery, romance, and cinematic detail. Her characters came to life effortlessly for me: I loved seeing Mark of the Loon’s resourceful and spunky Gen Delacourt again, and the newcomers in the story felt instantly like old friends. The narrative bounces back and forth to follow both Gen and Bree, which I particularly enjoyed. Both women are vastly different – Gen struck me as the more impulsive while Bree was decidedly more emotionally driven – but their chemistry makes them a terrific team to share the story. Greene’s heroes and heroines are heroic, and her villains are aptly villainous; but beyond that, Rapunzel boasts a mystery that leaves the reader actively engaged in rooting out who among the array of characters are trustworthy – and who aren’t. It’s the sort of fun experience in a mystery that makes us as readers feel as though we’re genuinely part of the story; the sort of experience that we never want to end.

What also impressed me was the way Greene was able to shift the atmosphere of Rapunzel from lighthearted and comedic to truly gripping suspense. There were flirty exchanges, moments of high-running family emotions, frustration-filled arguments, life and death situations, romantic heartbreaks, and the electric excitement of digging for the truth; Greene navigates it all with aplomb and delivers a story that entertains easily without giving away a single detail of its mystery. The mystery itself is a fascinating one, and it balances well with the detailed personal plights of each of the main characters; in pursuing the engineer’s murder, Bree and Gen both find out a good deal about themselves and it was interesting simply to follow along on their journey of discovery. In all, Rapunzel was a delightful read with a well-executed mystery, plenty of suspense, an uplifting friendship, a touch of romance, and a lot of heart.

HASH(0xa46acc00) out of 5 stars The last fairytale Nov. 16 2014
By KiwiSooz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found this to be an enjoyable read. Pleasant protagonists and an interesting plot. What I most liked was the author's descriptions of people and places. Far too many books have authors who indulge in over-describing everything, resulting in the ghastly purple prose. Ms Green was subtle enough to avoid this and let this reader's imagination fill in the blanks. I would read more by this author.

HASH(0xa46acbe8) out of 5 stars Engaging characters will keep me coming back for more of this series. Dec 1 2014
By RPurvis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were engaging and the plot kept me turning the pages. One of the reasons I enjoyed the book so much was that I had previously read another of the Gen Delacourt books and had already connected with several of the main characters I will definitely keep my eye out for more from this author.

Perhaps I should clarify my rating. I don't rate a book a 5 unless it packs a wallop that leaves me reeling. There are many good books, but only a few that are truly great. I reserve my 5-star ratings for those.

The book had no objectionable language, sex or graphic violence.

HASH(0xa46acfa8) out of 5 stars Unpredictable! April 12 2014
By Jay Mittener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the most fun kind of mystery. One where the characters just grip and you. You'll love Bree and her spirit for life. As a young journalist who finds herself accused or murder she decides that her time is well spent actually solving the murder instead of defending herself against it.

What ensues is a great mystery with a lot of unpredictable turns. Bree is a real heroine not just because she is brave, and strong, and honest but because she endures. She is not afraid to live a truth that is in her heart, to follow a dream in the wake up a scary experience..

Molly Greene has done an excellent job of bringing us a strong story. Her writing is excellent and it deserves to be said that the editing is also well done. That is something that can always ruin a great story for me. I look forward to reading more from Molly Greene and I absolutely respect her writing such a strong female.
