Publisher's Summary

Seattle reporter Mimi Raynard is having a bad week. Her ex-husband is now her boss at the TV station and wants her head on a platter. When three prostitutes die of a suspicious heroin overdose Mimi gets the story, but in her nervous enthusiasm, manages to bungle it. The narcotics detective on the case tries to help, but both are outfoxed by the buxom intern.

Desperate for a new job, Mimi takes a friend's advice and dresses up as a Russian Mafia madam for a resume tape she has no intention of sending out. But the lark turns serious and the fallout is deadly.

At the Seattle Police Department, the narcotics detective, Shad Mulgrew, has his own career crisis. He's been framed for stealing drugs from evidence. Are the murdered prostitutes linked to his case? Is he getting too close to the truth? And what is Mimi's father doing working for Eastern Europe's last Communists?

Working together to save their careers, Mimi and Shad look for the truth, from the fishing docks of Puget Sound to the tiny Republic of Moldova.

At turns funny, sexy, and thrilling with an edgy modern voice, Jump Cut depicts Seattle from the inside, from the joys of Seattle single life to its dark underbelly, from the lush islands to the top of the Space Needle, as the cop and the reporter try to salvage their reputations. They end up saving much more in a wild race to rescue the city they love.

strong characters

i have to confess that my first impression was that this is a kind of superficial story. with all the media fuss and glittering and intrigues going on. but once again i was oh so wrong.
but first things first. meet mimi a tv reporter who struggles in her business as well as mulgrew, a narcotics detective. just dive into their world to find out how the two of them get connected.
this story deals with a very serious topic but still in a not too depressing way.
the characters are very very likeable and go through a strong development.

this was my first book from lise but i am sure going to check out her other works!!

thank you very much #storyorigin #lise mcclendon for the audio copy of this book!

A romantic thriller mystery.

A complicated, multifaceted romantic thriller mystery. Side plots that all come together in the end. Murder. Prostitution. Human and drug trafficking. Reporters. Police. Corruption. Addiction......Funny. Angsty. Mystery. Everything goes wrong for poor Mimi! All very entertaining.
I listened to an Audio version and the narrator did an excellent job acting these numerous characters.

this book confused me at the beginning and it took me some time to feel comfortable in the story.
In the end, I liked the story and the relationship between the two main characters.
I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

"Time f!ies, tick tock, tick tock."

Life for TV reporter, Mimi, just keeps getting worse. Her ex has become her boss and wants her out of the station, The young intern, Penny, wants her job and her sister, it seems, is keeping a secret from her: the father who walked out on them ten years before is sick and needs money. Seattle detective, Chad Mu!grew, has problems of his own, not least fears that his partner might be dirty and he'd be indicted along with him. The couple bump into each other, literally, at the murder scene of three prostitutes...

A omance, yes, but .much more a mystery detection thriller: great stuff, with interesting characters and locations. Narrator Kristi Burns has a clear, pleasant voice, her reading fast with good modulation and expression, adding to the enjoyment of the story.

My thanks to the rights holder of Jump Cut, who, at my request freely gifted me with a complimentary copy via Story Origin. This is a book I would happily recommend to anyone who enjoys unexpected crime thrillers. Don't enjoy romances? No problem: his isn't the usual superficial boy meets girl tale so give it a try. .
