Published August 23, 2022
Mystery with a whiff of romance…After falling in love with the quiet lake life and a certain police detective, former Chicago Tribune reporter Emma Moore trades interviewing jocks for chasing champion cows at the county fair. As a small-town newspaper reporter, she covers local topics both big and small, but when her friend Luke is arrested for the murder of the head coach of his club softball team, she’ll need to hone her investigative skills to clear his name. Emma calls up best friend Grace for help, and together the women go up against cutthroat parents willing to kill for a chance to get their daughters onto a premier college sports team.
It’s the bottom of the ninth with bases loaded, and murder is up to bat. Can Emma and her friends bring the heat and win the game?
Review By LAWonder10:
Elizabeth McKenna truly “knocked it out of the park” with this sequel to her A Front Page Mystery Series. It is a very entertaining, cozy murder mystery. The reader is kept guessing “Who did it?” until the last pages of this charming novel.
Elizabeth McKenna is a talented author who can keep her books “clean” without losing the romance, action, and suspense momentums. This book contains a popular setting that most can relate to. There is nothing harmful in participating on a baseball team – or NOT!
The Title and Cover Image are eye-catching and well-chosen. The characters are very real and believable.
I offer a Five-Stars rating for this book.
This book was gifted to me with no pressure whatsoever to post a positive review
