Book Description:

Folks in Pine Grove, Pennsylvania, claim that where Nikki Bryant goes,
trouble is not far behind. Her refusal to back down from a challenge has
made Nikki Bryant a top investigative journalist.
When an online friend nudges her to join him in a pact to reconnect with
their first loves, Nikki and her boxer dog Elmo leave the bright lights
of Las Vegas for the charming town of Pine Grove. There, she must face
the biggest challenges in her career and life—the first love she had
left behind and her father’s unsolved murder.
But before she has time to unpack her car, Nikki stumbles upon the dead
body of local news anchor, Ashleigh Addison, her childhood rival. Could
Ashleigh’s death be connected to an explosive news story that she had
teased about airing live? Did that explosive story have anything to do
with the murder of Nikki’s father?
With the clues in her father’s cold case hot again, Nikki intends to
chase down the story of her life until she catches his killer—no matter
what it takes.

Review:
Ohh, this was a fun mystery. It was unique and complex without being overwhelming.
Nikki was a fun character. She was so confident in herself and that’s not always found in mysteries. She stayed true to herself throughout the whole story.
ELMO! I couldn't help but love this smart dog who made me laugh every time he appeared on the page. *picks up phone* “Hello, I’d like to request a visit from Elmo.”
One other thing I really liked about this story was the humor. It was present but not too much. It had me snickering quite a few times.
While this book certainly held my attention, there were a few minor drawbacks. There was a bit of an info-dump at the beginning and I gave up trying to keep the characters straight.
If you like mysteries with a side of quirky and lovable characters, try picking up Killer Deadline.
I’ll definitely be on the lookout for more books by Lauren Carr.

Rating: 4/5
Crude Language: one use of d*** and one use of b****
Romance: some crushing and a kiss
Spiritual: N/A
Violence: there was a death but not detailed
