Death on Deadline by Diane Majeske

Newspaper reporter America Miles knows that picturesque Hyacinth, Missouri, is a place to raise a family, not a fuss. But when her mean-as-a-snake editor keels over dead and her best friend falls under suspicion, America starts looking closer at her town - and her co-workers. She finds out that even small-town journalists can live dangerously, and there are some secrets that can get you killed.

Good story....I liked it. Sadly, whoever published the book onto Nook did a terrible job. There are a lot of mistakes within the text. You do get used to it and learn to compensate.

Diane Majeske gives us an easy to read murder mystery with a humerous main character that seems like she would be fun to hang out with and plenty of colorful characters to go along with her. She kept me guessing till the end with plenty of twists and turns. I like Majeske's writing style and will be checking out more books by her. Karen in IN

Tooo fun! I loved the high concept of the newspaper reporter sniffing around when her editor boss turns up dead after he confronts her about a story she wanted to report on. Immediately it made her a suspect and suspect everyone around her. I loved the characters, even the cat! I loved all the red herrings through out the novel. I was totally thrown off on who really did it. To me, that's a great job on the author's part. It was a fun quick read that was well worth my time and money! ONLY....I'm NEVER going to let someone in the office get me coffee again!!!

This novel is a mystery and well told. The main character is America Miles. The town is Hyacinth Missouri. America, we discover right away is a reporter on a Midwestern small town newspaper. Nothing really happens in Hyacinth until now! America's unfriendly editor dies of unnatural causes. Since he is not well liked, everyone at the newspaper is suspect. America investigates the story on her own. However there is danger! (I won't give away the surprising events or outcome.) The author, Majeske, offers up the mundane ins and outs of being a small time reporter with humor. The newspaper environment is very true to life. The main character is funny, and of course she has blind spots that always make the main character more interesting. She's a real person, with an everyday job. We as readers can see the trouble she's getting into. Will she get out? Solve the murder? You must read it to find out. Very good novel! Suspenseful! Kimberly

Death on Deadline combines snappy dialogue, realistic characters, and a good dose of pop culture with a enough suspense to keep you turning pages. A great read if you like mysteries. When the story's over, you'd love to see what these characters could get themselves into in a sequel.
