Publisher's Summary

Journalists are supposed to report the news, not be it. For Avery Shaw, though, that's easier said than done.

Avery has spent the last month on her boss' list - you know the one - and she can't figure out a way to get off it. When a missing person's case involving a wealthy mother in the northern suburbs surfaces, Avery figures the best way to get back in his good graces is break the story of the year.

There are just a few problems standing in her way. First off, she's being stalked online - and it's starting to make her life difficult. She's also decided to actually start dating the hot pawnshop owner, Eliot, who saved her life a few weeks back. That sounds good in theory, but she's constantly crossing paths with her ex-boyfriend and that tends to make things uncomfortable (to say the least).

When you compound that with the fact that this missing persons case is more than it appears - and the office tool has been assigned to the story with her - Avery manages to get in over her head. Again.

Avery is sure that she can work things out to her advantage - as long as she doesn't die in the pursuit of yet another story in which she manages to get personally involved.

Meh

I can't get excited about this series. The characters are immature and so is the story. I finished the story but won't get another book.

Good story, flat narration

This cozy little mystery was well written and engaging but suffered from flat narration. While the author could've spent more time developing the main characters love of pop culture and a geek culture the overall mystery and story was good. Unfortunately all of the male characters sounded exactly alike and for the first few chapters The main character came off as shrill catty and immature.

Early in the book there seem to be some editing issues that worked their way out later in the story. The narrator seem to warm up to the characters just a little bit but still deciphering who was speaking as a male character was sometimes confusing.

The good news is that despite the narration difficulties it wasn't enough to completely turn me away from the story. I did enjoy the characters and the development as they were written and probably should have read this book in print

Avery Shaw does it again

Buried Leads is a gripping, snarky mystery full of quirky characters. Avery Shaw's task is to report upon a missing woman but luck is not with her as she stumbles upon the truth and all its grisly details. Angel Clark again does a stellar job with the voices, emotions and sarcastic comebacks. The only thing I didn't like is how some characters use racial stereotypes or homophobic snips. I do recommend this book because the truth at the end is jaw dropping.

Enjoyable

Good chick flick for the enjoyment of a girl who is a reporter, thinks of herself, and the messes she gets into. The dialog and characters are quirky and fun, narration was enjoyable. Given audio for my voluntary review

Warning. listen around friends

You needed to make sure that when you listen to this story. you are around friends. thank goodness my co worker knows me, or she would wonder what all the goggles and snorts we're about. I loved the story and the narrator brought Ms Lees's stories to life.

good story, narrator getting better

if the author is going to continue to reference pop culture, esp horror, the narrator needs to do a little research. the killer in the friday the 13th franchise is jason vorhEEs, not jason vorhESS. it's just stupid things like that, that really bug the crap outta me...😂

Avery does it again!

The author did a wonderful job with a compelling and amusing story, in typical Avery-fashion.

Angel did an awesome job, (as usual) giving life to a very colorful cast of characters! Never boring!

Anyone who enjoys a good mystery starring an irreverent protagonist, should love this book!

Love this series!

What did you love best about Buried Leads?

Love witty, sarcastic Avery Shaw and her odd family! The cast of characters is good and leads to laugh out loud one liners.

What other book might you compare Buried Leads to and why?

Similar to the Calamity Jane series by Kathleen Bacus. Main character is a journalist and the story includes oddball family and old boyfriend.

What does Angel Clark bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

This was my first audio book and it was strange hearing a voice that was not the one I heard in my head when I read the book. It will be interesting to get the next audible in this series.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This is a funny book with laugh out loud moments.

Once again Avery is making the news

I enjoyed this book. I think Avery Shaw is growing on me and I didn't find her quiet as annoying as in book one and two. Now if only the author can get the balance between mystery and family life this could be a good series. This book contained a little bit to much family life for me and while entertaining and often funny it didn't really have anything to do with the mystery, which is why I listen to books. I did enjoy it and listened to the end but the mystery got lost in squabbles. Squabbles is the only word for it, as Avery has a hunky and capable boyfriend but still get jealous and resorts to make calling with the ex's new girlfriend. The story could have also done with a few more suspects but I am still off to start the next book in the series to see what other trouble Avery can get into.
The police call a press conference when a mother disappears and Avery is assigned the job of covering the case for the local newspaper. The case seems strange right from the start and Avery is soon getting the police's way as she tries to find out what happened to the lady. And if she is even alive.
I like the narrator, although at times she makes the main character sound whiny when I don't think she is meant to be. On the whole it is a good performance.
