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.

My Take:
I really enjoyed this cozy mystery  in which the author had me totally guessing at who the culprit was. It wasn't easy to figure out! The characters were quite entertaining, my favorite being the handsome Ryan, who always seemed to have a level head on his shoulder and played the part of the male hero well.  Of course Nikki, the protagonist, was a interesting character to follow too, along with her dog who was quite popular on social media. Who knew animals had social media accounts. (I told my daughter, No! Her dog could not have a social media account. Apparently, one of her friends dogs does....) Well, that was unrelated to the review, but was something that came up at our house, after I finished reading about Elmo being so popular and increasing the popularity of local residents and businesses when they had their pictures made with him.  The dog, may have honestly been my second favorite character as he was smart enough to clean house, and do quite a few other helpful things. (Why don't our dogs do that?)

I enjoyed the plot and how the two mysteries were woven together. The author did a fantastic job of pulling the reader in and making you feel like part of the people and the town. I was really excited to have the chance to review this as an audio book. The narration was well done, and easy to listen to. I was blessed with a copy of this book courtesy of  ireadsbooktours.
