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

Nikki Bryant has returned home to Pine Grove to take over the reigns of the families TV station, but before she can even settle in she stumbles upon the body of Ashleigh Addison – who is not only the local newscaster but her childhood rivial! It appears that Ashleigh had gotten a hold of a great story that she was going to tell but her untimely death put that story to rest along with her, or did it? Nikki thinks that the story was a possible cold case lead into the death of her father all those years ago and she begins to suspect that Ashleigh’s death now may also be connected. It all seemed so coincidental that Nikki should return home just as Ashleigh was getting intel on a big story that may have to do with Nikki’s father, but she puts her investigative journalist skill to use that takes her on a journey of lies and betrayal.

I loved this book, and it is the first I have read from Lauren Carr – she has done a great job with the start of this series, and Elmo that dog was just a great addition to this novel. the characters were well written and likeable though I was little surprised at how naive Nikki was towards the identity of her online friend NerdyGuy, but then again sometimes you cant see what is right in front of you. Teh mystery keep my engrossed and I loved the light hearted comedic humour Elmo brought to the story. I cant wait to see what is on store for Nikki and Elmo next!
