Dead to the World by Camilla Chafer

The sequel to Deadlines…

Chief reporter turned reluctant entertainment columnist, Shayne Winter, is hungry for a hard-hitting headline. All she has to do is convince her grouchy editor at the LA Chronicle to give her a real story; but all he wants her to do is write forgettable snippets and leave the real work to ace reporter, Ben Kosina.
When Hollywood’s hottest starlet, Claudia Gilbert, is found dead, Shayne knows nothing is what it seems. After all, only yesterday Shayne was observing Claudia’s every move, ready to spill the latest celebrity gossip in her column. Shayne discovers Claudia was planning to sneak away on a secret trip, so how did she end up at home, dead?
Despite all evidence pointing to Claudia’s estranged husband being the guilty party, Shayne, unlike Ben, isn’t convinced. Claudia’s whole life and career were orchestrated; couldn’t her death have been too? If Shayne can uncover the truth, she might beat the deadline for a real headline; that is, if she doesn’t end up in the killer’s crosshairs.

Love the Lexi books but mainly for the romance. The criminal element is absolutely secondary. So i was very skeptical if CS could pull of a tea Suspense novel. Let me tell you, she absolutely can!! Read two of the Shayne Winter books in a row. Love it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the second book in this series. Shayne Winters wants to be a front page reporter but is stuck on obituaries and entertainment. The two collide and she soon finds herself deep in solving the murder of an actress she was supposed to interview. Can she solve the murder in time? The author does a great job developing the characters who are a part of Shayne's life. We are growing to know each one and wonder who is right for her. I'm looking forward to the next one.

I really enjoyed this book. It sucked me in. I really liked being shocked at the ending! I love Shayne and learning of her starting over in a new city and the friends she is making. Her and Ben's confusion on their relationship. I especially like the teasing between Shayne and Mike. I am ready for the next book to catch up with all the wonderful characters again. I would recommend this series to others. **arc copy given for an honest review**

Camilla Chafer has an amazing talent for building the world that houses each of her three series. While the Deadline Mystery series is located in contemporary LA, it is the smaller world of Shayne Winter that we move into and come to love. Shayne is still getting used, but that doesn’t mean that she is going to settle into her new role as entertainment reporter and obituary writer. She has come to understand that Ben didn’t intentionally sabotage her new job and is developing a relationship with him, but she is working her hardest to create headline stories. Meanwhile, following a leading actress pays off when the woman is killed and something Shayne witnessed puts a twist on the story that no one else is interested in. Even Ben, who is willing to share the byline, is tied to the facts and not ready to follow her instinct very far in the case. Love, Love, Love.

LOVED! This is a fun series that I just love! In it, Shayne is working with her job stealing sort of boyfriend, Ben, when a prominent Hollywood star is murdered. For the police, it's a slam dunk solve and the soon to be ex-husband is quickly arrested. For Shayne, things just don't add up and it seems too pat and easy, so she starts investigating on her own. Ben believes the police got the right guy, causing a bit of friction between them. This is a fast paced fun novel that fans of the genre will love. I particularly enjoyed the fun dialogue between Shayne and the other characters - especially Mike and the triplets. Put this one at the top of your TBR list, you'll be glad you did. The author is on my must read authors' list.

This is the second book in this series and I can say I was not disappointed. This is the perfect “who done it book”. Camilla Chafer is one of my favorite authors. I am on her ARC team and I love it. She is a wonderful author and sweet as can be. I really enjoy reading her books. My favorite series is her Lexi Graves Series. You should definitely check her out on Facebook @CamillaChafer. In this book LA’s newest Chronicle reporter Shayne Winter is back and at it again. When she gets an interview of the lifetime and her client Starlet Claudia turns up dead, her and Ben are put on the headline story. The investigation heats up and everything points to Josh, the starlets husband. Too bad the same can’t be said of Ben and Shayne’s relationship, which seems to be cold. Will Ben and Shayne work out the relationship and move it to the hot and heavy zone? Will Shayne be able to find the murderer before it is too late? ohhh GIFThis book had me guessing till the end with a twist that was very unexpected. I love the characters in this series. Camilla is slowly introducing move characters and building a great background. Mike is super funny with his trash talking. He has Shayne believing some pretty good stories. Their banter is sooo funny. Sometimes I wonder if maybe he is interested in Shayne a little more than he lets on. The story is steady paced and thrilling. If you love to read a good murder mystery then this is the book for you. I highly recommend this and all Ms. Chafer’s books. You will not be disappointed. *ARC provided by Camilla Chafer in exchange for my honest review.
