Publisher's Summary

Divorce a husband, lose a career...grapple with a murder. 

TV journalist Elizabeth “E.M.” Danniher will tell you she committed two sins: She didn’t stay young, and she made an enemy of a powerful news executive - her ex. She used to break national news. Now, her top story as the "Helping Out!" reporter at dinky KWMT-TV in Sherman, Wyoming, is getting a defective toaster repaired.

Tough, funny and determined, Elizabeth wrestles with isolation, keeping a professional edge, and an evolving self-image. Is Wyoming - the land of cattle, cowboys, tumbleweeds, and fewer than six people per square mile - her new home or a road to permanent obscurity? 

Soon, she’s in a battle of wills with ex-football player turned journalist Mike Paycik, who might see her as a handy rung on his career ladder or a romantic partner or both. And there’s the matter of a deputy sheriff - missing or murdered?

Elizabeth finds herself investigating at the insistence of a girl who’s set on proving her father’s innocence. Not that enigmatic rancher Thomas Burrell makes investigating easy for an amateur sleuth. But Elizabeth won’t fade to black without a fight, no matter how final some might want to make her sign off.

Poor Quality

The post production of this book is awful. The last sentence of most chapters is cut off. I can deduce what the sentence meant, but when I pay $10-$17 for a book, I expect better quality.
I am also disappointed that Audible (for whatever reason) does not have book 2 in the series. I do not want to listen to books 3-6 without hearing book 2 first.

FUN!

I just loved escaping into this Wyoming town and it’s characters. Anyone that ever lived in a small town will totally relate. Heck! Anyone that went to high school will get it. Small towns still have big drama.
The story was plucky, it was funny and I truly didn’t know ‘who done it’ until the reveal, which surprised me.

The narrator was superb, too. She has a soothing voice and all the different “CHARACTERS “ were distinctive. Some of the characters are normal but some are a bit bigger (The super market check out gossip was my favorite.) but her narration and acting never take you out of the story.

I’m in now! Will definitely download the next book in the series.

Also, I could see this as a TV show. The main crew is so likable.

New Series - Worth Listening!

I was looking for something new... tried this book. I really enjoyed it. Great descriptive characters. Will order the second in the series.... make sure you read the tag lines.. downloaded the wrong 2nd book in a series... she has more than one series.

Sign Off is a great start to a new cozy mystery series with engaging characters and a well written mystery. I look forward to the next book.
