Publisher's Summary

Life should be good for Avery Shaw. She's got a hunky new boyfriend in local pawnshop owner (and sometime private detective) Elliot Kane, her cousin Lexie swears she'll be moving out of her house one day "real soon" and her family has been relatively quiet for a whole week. That's practically perfection in Avery's world.

Then, what appears to be a random freeway shooting resulting in the death of a young mother, causes upheaval on just about every front. County Sheriff Jake Farrell announces that the same gun used in the current shooting was also used in a similar shooting one county over a few weeks before. A joint task force is assembled and the denizens of southeastern Michigan are on edge - including Elliot and Jake, who still can't quite seem to make amends with one another.

Avery is on the case, but she's got a few distractions blocking her way. The commander of the local National Guard base is acting cagey, there's a new public relations liaison in the sheriff's department that is laying down the law about media leaks and her grandfather is refusing to report for jury duty which, most likely, will result in his own incarceration.

When you couple that with Carly's upcoming wedding, the opening of Lexie's new yoga studio and Avery's mom's insistence that Thundercats shoes are not appropriate footwear for public outings, and Avery's happiness quotient continues to plummet.

Avery is determined to get the story - even when it becomes apparent that her efforts have turned the shooter's attention to her. When Avery finally does find an answer, will she survive to tell anyone about it?

    "They never learn!"

    Everyone's favorite self-absorbed trouble-maker is back being her usual self! Being amused while trying to figure out the culprit is always a joy for me!

    This time I was taken by surprise, so bravo all around!

    Angel Clark did an awesome job, as always!

    "Good story"
    Where does Shot Off The Presses rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is probably in the top 10 of my list


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It did not keep me on the edge of my seat but I didn't expect it to. This is a lighter weight mystery and kept me entertained


    Which character – as performed by Angel Clark – was your favorite?

    Like liked Avery Shaw although she was a little too whiny for my tastes. The voice was not my favorite. A little too high pitched.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No

    "Avery Shaw is the best!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Shot Off The Presses to be better than the print version?

    I loved the print version of the book and was just as happy with the audio version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character in this series is always Avery Shaw. I love her tenacious attitude and wish I was more like her in my own life.


    What about Angel Clark’s performance did you like?

    I think she has a nice voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I wouldn't say there was a part of the book that moved me, the whole book is more of an entertaining addiction. Once I start I can't stand to put it down, I have to know what is going to happen next. I love the way Avery does whatever is necessary to get her story and the interactions with her family have me laughing out loud.


    Any additional comments?

    All of Amanda's books are great reads that keep you entertained from the moment you start reading. Everyone who likes to read and likes to laugh should give them a try, once you do you will be hooked!

    Story
    "Captivating Avery Shaw"
    What made the experience of listening to Shot Off The Presses the most enjoyable?

    It has a nicely written book, and made for a lovely, lazy Sunday! Storyline started a bit slow - with a description of a lame wedding in the planning stages - but quickly picked up and became engaging. The audio stumbled in a few spots, repeating phrases or sentences, and there were a couple of pronunciations that I found grating (though I know most non-Michiganders would struggle with Gratiot!) Audio meant I could sit in the sun with a beverage, without straining to read my Kindle in the bright light! Thank you, Amanda M. Lee - I love your books!


    What other book might you compare Shot Off The Presses to and why?

    I have none to compare.
