Muse (Book 2 of the Groupie Series) by Susan Daugherty is a great sequel to Groupies. It starts from where book 1 ended, making it easy to pick up the threads, and continues effortlessly through this remarkable story. Sometimes, I find that sequels are not as good as the first book, but that is definitely not the case with Muse. It is every bit as good, if not better than Groupies as Ms. Daugherty takes us on yet another rollercoaster ride through the lives of the two main protagonists. The character development continues strong, with more details about the characters coming out through the story, and truly bringing them to life. This is a story of many emotions; laughter, love, heartache, to name just a few, and they all meld together in one truly unforgettable tale. Great story, recommended for anyone who wants a delightful story to get their teeth into – do read book 1 first! Really looking forward to reading more from Ms. Daugherty in the future.
