When your Monday morning begins with a dead dog and ends with a dead boss, you know it’s going to be one of those days. And breakfast TV reporter Cora Baxter has already had the weekend from hell, after the man she’d planned a fabulous future with unceremoniously dumped her. Now Cora’s much-hated boss has been murdered – the list of suspects isn’t exactly short, but as the enquiry continues the trail leads frighteningly close to home. Why is Cora’s rival, glamorous, bitchy newsreader Alice Lomas, so devastated by their boss’s death? What dark secrets are Cora’s camera crew hiding? And why has her now ex-boyfriend vanished? The race to stop the killer striking again is on…
A well-written novel about TV celebs, romance and murder – what’s not to like?
Cora Baxter has been dumped, her boss has been murdered, and her nemesis at work is getting nastier by the minute. Add a potential stalker, a hot actor, a crew member that’s clearly hiding something and a dreamy detective, and you have the makings of a very interesting adventure.
The plot was tight, the writing pacy and the characters were so well drawn that I found myself completely identifying with Cora despite the fact her dreams and choices were both alien and polar opposite to what I have/would have made. A great crime caper. Enjoy!
