Once I got started on this book I couldn't put it down. It is about a murder/mystery romance. I will definitely read more of her books.

Not bad...Julie Jones is keeping whammy of a secret, one that could cost her her life, and the life of her daughter. That secret has led to her being framed for a high-profile murder that she didn't commit, and her only ally just happens to be her worst (professional enemy). Will they outrun the madman who's trying to destroy Julie? Will they decide that they don't hate each other quite as much as they thought? And most importantly, will they be able to keep Julie's secrets hidden from the world while keeping her out of jail?

Straight-laced upstate New York news anchor Julie Jones has a deadly secret: 16 years earlier, as a teen runaway named Jewel, she fled the besieged burning compound of fanatic cult leader/drug dealer Mordecai Young, with his hidden fortune and her dying best friend's newborn child. Self-proclaimed "Reverend" Young and the rest of his cult, save two other "favorite" girls, perished in the attack by federal agents-or so Julie always thought. But when a blackmailer threatening to expose Julie is murdered and two former "favorite" girls turn up dead as well, it appears the messianic madman may be after the daughter Julie has raised as her own. Her only ally is sensationalist shock-jock radio reporter Sean MacKenzie, Julie's worst professional rival. Suspense thrums throughout due to Shane's (Twilight Hunger, etc.) seemingly effortless skill at teasing readers with surprising but believable plot turns. Just as suspenseful-in a different, delicious way-is the snappy sparring between the reluctantly paired co-anchors; romantic sparks fly between them as fast as witty insults, making this a tasty, tension-packed read.

This book came home to me via BookCrossing and a Mystery/Thriller bookbox while I was still deciding if I liked thrillers. Maybe I'm a big old chicken but this was a little too edgy for me. I've decided I like my mysteries Cozy. Hope someone enjoys!

Paperback Bookcrossing book marked only with a number on inside front cover. Also, a previous owner wrote 75c in black marker on the front cover. Book is in very good condition though.
