Local news reporter Avery Shaw's week is going from bad to worse.
It’s bad enough there's a dead body in the parking lot of the paper, but when the investigation into the death leads to drugs - and a tie to her own family - things continue to spiral downward. If she could focus on that, though, it would just be another normal week. Constant run-ins with both the men in her life - neither of whom seems to be showing her the level of respect she feels she deserves - are making things more stressful than they need to be.
Avery is going to get the story - even if it means taking down her own cousin. Surviving to file that story, though, that’s a whole other problem altogether.
Warning: This book is snarky and sarcastic. Listen only if you're not easily offended - and you like to laugh. This is the second book in the Avery Shaw Mystery series.

Really love Amanda Lee books. This one was no exception. I think capturing Avery Shaw's snarky attitude would be tough. It was a bit overdone, but otherwise I truly enjoyed it.
If I could I would give this story 2 1/2 stars. The story is actually pretty good, However the lead character is not very likable and consistently makes poor decisions. I figured out who the villain was early on but only because it was the least obvious choice. I'm not going to get the next book in the series because I know the lead character is not going to change. If you like women who are snarky, self absorbed and selfish who make bad decisions I recommend this series. The story is not bad. It's Avery's outlook on life that ruined the story for me.
