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?

The Princess of Journalistic Snark

Avery Shaw is back again and in trouble but for her that's just a normal day. The loveable snarky princess is back and in deep up to her neck in trouble everywhere she turns including with boyfriend Elliott and her ex Jake. The characters are still as quirky as ever especially with Angel Clark at the helm as the always amazing narrator. I still find a Duncan and Marvin to be utterly annoying as ever. The story had me laughing from the beginning till the end with the witty banter between the characters. I found the book to be well written and developed. I highly recommend this book.

Enjoyed

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

the storylines get better n better!

but. as much as this narrator is really growing on me, can you say 'editor'?! idk how many times exactly, many more than several tho, the do-over lines of the narrator were not edited out, so there were a Lot of instances where you'll hear the same line repeated with different inflection. just a very poor job on the part of the air quote editor, ive never listened to an audio book and heard anything of the sort. shit and togetherness and things that make ya go...

Love this series

This is such a good book, but the editing of the narration is horrific. There are so many lines repeated. not sure how this has slipped through the cracks, but it's a frustrating listen.

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

Wonderful series and author!

What did you love best about Shot Off The Presses?

Easy to get into, and a lot of fun. You will find your self laughing with this author. All her books are full of snark, and smart @$$ comments.

Own worst enemy

This series has me mixed. I enjoy the books but not always the main character who annoys everybody just for the sake of it, then wonders why she becomes the subject of there attacks. Don't get me worry I do enjoy the series and the mystery but just wish she was a little bit nicer. This does lead to some funny situations but also she brings on a lot of the trouble herself but somehow she still manages to keep two hot guys coming to her rescue, even if she doesn't want there help. That is one of the redeeming qualities that I like about Avery, she is tough and not a damsel in distress who needs a man to come to her aid even when she is being shot at, she knows what she wants and doesn't let anyone get in her way, well maybe her mother. The series is full of snark, sexual innuendos and mischief. The characters are interesting and despite the griping they are a tight knit group and can give back just as good as they receive, that is why the Granddad spends the night in jail. The mystery was good and like Avery the killer wasn't on my radar.
Avery is once again putting her life on the line in order to get a story. This time it is her job to uncover the story of a shooting on the highway. This isn't the first case, can she dig deep and find the connection between the victims or the reason behind them? At the same time the police department is going through some changes and a new press Secretary is hired to make Avery's life difficult. With her easy access to police resources cut off can Avery find the edge she needs? It is finally the date for her best friends wedding but with the mother in law from hell changing the wedding plans Avery also has to be the emotional support her friend needs to see it though. Can she do it all? Avery has a habit of not just writing the story but becoming it and with a killer randomly shooting people is she going to be the next target?
The narrator was okay but the editing needs to be looked at as a few sentences were repeated. Also I did find that sometime it sounded like the characters were whining when I don't think they were meant to be.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
