Kirsch keeps Stella on the move again, and involved in another investigation. This time she might be in over her head. Will this be goodbye to Janet? I've read them all and always enjoy the author's style and knowledge of the TV business. Good luck with the upcoming stresser!

Reviewed by Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite The Big Overnight (Stella Reynolds Mystery Book 3) by Libby Kirsch is an exciting suspense novel featuring a Knoxville television reporter. While Stella is reporting on an arrest, she is stunned when the suspect confesses to the shooting on live TV. A few days later, the young man's mother is found dead in a burning building. An anonymous tipster emails Stella, insisting that the shooting and the murder are connected, and urges Stella to look further into the crimes. The unidentified source indicates that the law enforcement isn't all that it seems and not to trust them. But how can that be? Crime statistics have never been lower. As she delves into the murder, the FBI is following her, and gang members are threatening her life. When police members who are her friends have dropped out of her life and aren't answering her calls, and the local authorities are quite possibly corrupt, Stella doesn't know whom to trust. With all the new murders, it seems that there may have been an error made in the poll on the criminal element in Knoxville. With no one to turn to for help, Stella has to make a stand for herself. Will Stella survive or will she be another statistic in the growing crime rate in the city? The Big Overnight (Stella Reynolds Mystery Book 3) by Libby Kirsch is a thrilling suspense murder mystery. The aspect of crime solving from a reporter's point of view piqued my interest. The story has a marvelous plot and delivers a satisfying conclusion. As this is the third book in a series, I found all the characters and how they correlated to be confusing in the beginning, but as the story progressed, I was able to connect their relationships and discern their dynamics. I enjoyed this book very much and am now a Stella Reynolds fan. I am looking forward to reading more about Stella's exploits and her amateur sleuthing. This novel is an excellent read for those who are fans of suspenseful murder mysteries.

While Det. Murphy is escorting a prisoner to the County Jail, CBS4 Reporter Stella Reynolds gets Cas Rockman's confession to shooting David Bennet on camera. About a week later, Stella finds herself at the scene of a house fire. After reporting that she is not sure whether the fire was accidental or arson, Stella gets a call from the station telling her that another reporter has called in sick and she is stuck working a double shift. As she waits for the replacement photographer to show up, two homicide detectives arrive at the scene of the fire. Later Stella learns from Det. Murphy that there was a body in the house, but there is no comment as to the cause of death. During an interview with the Mayor, it is confirmed that the body in the house fire was that of Luanne Rockman, Cas Rockman's mother. When the interview is cut short due to it being an "ongoing investigation", Stella is left with more questions than answers. Back at the station, while Stella is writing her story for the daytime reporter, she gets an anonymous email with a big tip - Two Victims, One Shooter! Keep digging! Unfortunately, as Stella starts to dig deeper into the shooting of David Bennet, her life is threatened and she is told to stop investigating the case. Another tip from Anonymous tells her there is a big gang and drug problem in the city, even though the mayor says that crime in the city is down. Who is Anonymous and where does he get his information? Are the two murders actually related? Will Stella be able to uncover the truth or will this be her swan song? Is there anybody she can trust or is she just being used? This is a well-developed story with complex characters and an intricate plot. There are a lot of twists and turns that will keep you guessing. Once started, this book is hard to put down. I received a copy of this book from the author and elected to provide this review.
