Investigative reporter Charlotte McNally is an expert at keeping things confidential, but suddenly everyone has a secret - and it turns out it is possible to know too much.
Her latest scoop - an expose of a dangerous car scam, complete with stakeouts, high-speed chases and hidden-camera footage - is ratings gold. But soon that leads her to a brand-new and diabolical scheme. Charlie's personal and professional lives are on a collision course, too. Her fiance is privy to information about threats at an elite private school that have turned deadly.
Charlie has never counted on happy endings. But now, just as she's finally starting to believe in second chances, she realizes revenge, extortion and murder may leave her alone again - or even dead....
This is the third in the Charlie McMally series. In this book, things are more exciting, more challenging, and just as deadly for Charlie and her producer, Franklin. Charlie is now, in addition to living in her own condo, living at least part-time with her fiancée, Josh and his daughter, Penny. Charlie is very committed to making Josh and Penny her family, but this commitment runs into conflict with her profession as an investigative reporter. There are things she knows, for example, about conflicts at the private school where Josh teaches that she can’t relate to anyone at work, even though it might be a good scoop for a news story. And there are things she is learning about, with regard to a car theft and scam ring that she cannot relate to Josh and Penny. On top of all of that, their manager has been offered a network position in New York and will be leaving. He has offered Charlie a chance to move with him to New York-a reporter’s dream to move to a network position, but she is not to tell anyone else, including her own producer about this possibility. Thus, she and her team now have secrets from each other. And she has to determine whether or not she will stay in Boston as she begins married life, or whether she will commute during the week to New York. The car theft scam and the private school scandal both lead Charlie into danger. There are car chases and stakeouts and other thrilling events in this book. I think it’s the best of the three in this series.
