Synopsis: As Dallas/Fort Worth television networks move into "sweeps" month, WBFD-TV station manager J. Gordon Pfeiffer fires a popular, investigative reporter and picks inexperienced new-hire Aspen Wicklow for his consumer watchdog program, Public Defender. Pfeiffer needs a winning formula to raise the worst ranked station's ratings, but Aspen hides a secret - tragic news makes her cry. Aligning with Pfeiffer's assistant, a mal-adjusted fashion plate with hot flashes, helps Aspen overcome cutthroat colleagues. But following Pfeiffer's cardinal rule of journalism - "Never become part of the story" - becomes virtually impossible once "Investigative Reporter Barbie" gets sucked into a small town sheriff's ongoing war with the Texas prison system. As Aspen ignites a bitter feud with local police, and covers a consumer dispute that draws her into a killer's lair, the prospect of winning a broadcast excellence award pales in comparison to getting fired or killed in this clever, witty tale of murder, mayhem and romance. Laurie Moore, an attorney, lives in Fort Worth with a fractious Siamese cat and a bad Welsh Corgi. She has written two other mystery series, both set in Texas.
From Publishers Weekly:
Starred Review. The marvelous first in a new romantic suspense series from Moore (Jury Rigged) sparkles with Janet Evanovich–style humor. Aspen Wicklow, a University of North Texas journalism grad down to her last $75, lucks out and lands a plum job on WBFD-TV's Public Defender in Fort Worth, Tex. Tig Welder, a hotshot gunning for an anchor spot, reminds œInvestigative Reporter Barbie never to try scooping him, while station manager J. Gordon Pfeiffer warns her never to become part of the story. Following either tip isn't easy after Aspen meets ruggedly handsome Spike Granger, a Johnson County sheriff who's on a rampage about prison overcrowding. Even more alarming is researching a missing person report on Candy Drummond, who pledged at the same sorority as Aspen. Candy later turns up a strangled corpse. The action hurtles to a cliff-hanging close that includes more than one tantalizing twist sure to leave readers eager for the sequel. (June)
