This is a very readable book and you will really like the heroine, Charlotte McNally. She is a television reporter who has been around for a while and knows that she had better get some very interesting stories or have to take a back seat to some up and comers who would love to see her fail.
Her life may be in danger when she finds that a very innocent e-mail offer resulted in a murder, havoc and a fraud ring. Soon, her investigation sends her to Josh Gelston, who is VERY handsome and also very helpful. Charlotte has a nose for news but handsome strangers are a whole other thing. She must decide if she can trust this guy or she might end up as the next murder story.
This is a fun story with an interesting mystery to solve. I recommend this to all mystery readers. Charlie McNally is smart and a really appealing character and the story is very fast paced with a lot of humor, danger and a plot that will keep you guessing.
All the best,
