Big Weekend by Libby Kirsch

You can run. You can hide. Or you can get highlights.

Columbus police make a quick arrest in a murder, but when a tip comes in from someone who knows more about the case than detectives, it's clear to TV reporter Stella Reynolds that the woman behind bars didn't pull the trigger.

With lowlifes stealing the headlines, why is Stella's boss only concerned with her hair? He insists a makeover will help her career, but she knows that a visit to the salon will only get in the way of solving the murder. Or will it? With the real suspect determined to stay hidden, maybe a makeover contest is the perfect cover for catching a killer.

Vicious lies. Unyielding deadlines. And a killer makeover.

The best of the series so far. The books give you an insiders look at what working as a news person would really be like . I watch our local news with a whole new understanding of what goes into putting the show together, and how hard it would be. These books are fun and interesting .

When the story began, I wasn't sure I was ready for it (would it be the same story in a different format). Very quickly, I was too involved to put it down. Another fun story in this series. Unique, too.

Robert Herbert has been shot at point-blank range and an eye witness insists that his ex-wife, Tabitha Herbert, is the one who shot him. The next day a second murder occurs at the same location and this time the victim is Darren, Tabitha's brother. At Tabitha's arraignment, attorney Eleanor Pochowski, is asked to help Tabitha complete the necessary paperwork to obtain a court-appointed attorney. As Eleanor was leaving the courthouse, she tells Stella that the judge assigned her to the case. During Tabitha's bond hearing, Eleanor fails to show up and the hearing has to be rescheduled. Stella discovers that Eleanor was actually at the courthouse, but neglected to appear for the hearing. When Stella finally gets a chance to interview Tabitha, she learns that Eleanor volunteered to take the case, rather than having it assigned to her. Are the two murders related? What is the real story with Eleanor? Why did Eleanor miss the bond hearing? Is she hiding something? With Tabitha in jail, she could not have shot Darren, so who is the shooter? Can Stella get to the bottom of the mystery? I received an Advanced Copy of this book from the author and elected to provide this review.
