WITHOUT A DOUBT by Nancy Cole Silverman

"An irresistible page-turner. Murders pile up along with bombs, car chases, and betrayal, but not without the droll humor that only a writer like Silverman knows how to blend into a story cozy readers won't soon forget." - Jill Amadio, Author of Digging Too Deep

"Crackles with memorable characters, Hollywood legends, and as much action behind the mic as investigative reporter Carol Childs finds in the field. A fast-paced story of international jewel thieves and the politics that play out in the newsroom." - Mar Preston, Author of A Very Private High School

"A rockin' thrill ride through the streets of LA and Bev Hills in search of stolen jewels and murderous thieves." - Paul D. Marks, Shamus Award-Winning Author of White Heat

"Carol is a smart, savvy heroine that will appeal to readers. This is a cozy with a bite." - Rosemary Smith, Books for Avid Readers (on Shadow of Doubt)

"Fast paced and cleverly plotted, an edgy cozy with undertones of noir." - Sue McGinty, Author of the Bella Kowalski Central Coast Mysteries (on Beyond a Doubt)

"Silverman's books are un-put-downable and very well-written. Another stellar outing!" - Goodreads

As radio reporter Carol Childs investigates a series of Beverly Hills jewelry heists, she realizes her FBI boyfriend, Eric, is working the same case. Even worse, she may have inadvertently helped the suspect escape. The situation intensifies when the suspect calls the radio station during a live broadcast, baiting Carol deeper into the investigation.

In order for her to uncover the truth, Carol must choose between her job and her personal relationships. What started out as coincidence between Carol and Eric becomes a race for the facts-pitting them against one another-before the thieves can pull off a daring escape, leaving a trail of dead bodies behind, and taking the jewels with them.

She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Bruce, and two standard poodles.

Reporter Carol Childs is in the right place at the wrong time when she witnesses a jewelry store robbery. Since it is the start of awards season in Los Angeles, the store had plenty of jewels on hand. With Eric, her FBI agent boyfriend, working the case, it creates issues in their relationship. Carol is certain that socialite Carmen Montague is involved in some fashion. Is she correct? The book starts off quickly, and the pace never lags as the story continues. I was turning pages as quickly as I could to keep up with the twists and turns of the plot. The characters are strong, which includes the new characters. I would have liked to see a bit more of the series regulars, but that’s a minor complaint overall. There were a few minor editing issues in the book, but again they are minor and didn’t impact the story at all.

Dollycas’s Thoughts Carol Childs in on assignment when she sees Eric, her FBI boyfriend, leave a jewelry store with another woman on his arm. Seconds later there is an explosion. Carol rushes to the scene to report on the situation for her radio station, KCHC Talk Radio. Her reports draws even more interest as a suspect calls the station during a live broadcast. The type of news has been frowned on my the station’s owners but Carol can’t let the story drop, especially when she learns Eric is working on the case. Their relationship takes a hit as they both dry to catch the criminals. In this installment we meet the owner’s wife, Bunny, the one that only wants happy news on the station. She even takes over one of the programs. The manager tells Carol to stick right by Bunny’s side but Bunny informs Carol her help is not needed. But Bunny may have bitten off more that she can chew. Again the author has introduced some interesting characters into Carol’s world. With each story we get to know Carol a little better and I find myself liking her more and more. She is a strong character driven by her job or the job she is striving to get but still takes time when her son needs her. She is smart and savvy and just reckless enough to get herself into trouble. Her relationship with Eric is a little rocky because well the other woman and she wants to know things about the investigation he just can’t reveal. This was an amazing fast read due the pacing of the plot. Driven by jewel thefts and dead bodies the pages were just flying. The behind the scenes look at the radio station and virtual tours around Beverly Hills added nicely to the story. I read it all in one sitting, I wanted to figure things out almost as much as Carol. A very entertaining book! I will be reviewing the next book Room For Doubt soon.

Nancy Cole Silverman's latest - WITHOUT A DOUBT is a peek behind the curtain of the Beverly Hills elite. Curious news reporter Carol Childs whirls the reader through chocolate, polo ponies, bling-bling, celebs, fancy cars, humongous mansions... and for the ladies - ripped fellas. What could possibly go wrong? Nancy's writing is crisp and here wit is sharp - A must read.

As a reporter for a local radio station, Carol tends to fall over more bodies than anyone in recent memory. And, because she’s so much better at solving the crime than the local cops, what’s not to love about this series? Silverman just keeps getting better with a very comprehensive plot line and well0developed characters. It was sad to read about the split with Rick, but a gal’s career must take priority – right? I do hope our author is planning another book in this series, because Carol is addictive. Great read that I will be recommending to all my book worm friends.

[I received this book free from the publisher through NetGalley. I thank them for their generousity. In exchange, I was simply asked to write an honest review, and post it. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising] “Accidentally? Carol, how does one accidentally escort a thief from the scene of a crime?... You can’t be both a reporter and a material witness for the FBI. You’re one side or the other, not both." Carol Childs, radio news reporter for KCHC Talk Radio, is busy trying to balance her work with being a single mom and her relationship with FBI agent Eric Langdon, whose job often "spills over" into their personal lives. And having seen Eric undercover makes her realize that the bomb that just exploded may have been a cover for the theft of rather expensive jewelry from Henry Westin on Rodeo Drive, fallout of which affects Carol and the people she reports on when the radio station allows it to interfer with the "chick-lite" format recently institued by the new owner's wife. How is supposed to do her job when the news doesn't "fit" Bunny Morganstern's ideas which,by the way, are making the station the laughing stock of LA? Carol just keeps doing her job, tries to keep away from exposing the FBI and when the well- known well-heeled Carmen Montague dies, exposing the theives are the least of her worries. Told in typical Nancy Cole Silverman style, we get to see the backstory of the 90210 crowd as well as the daily grind of radio news. Silverman's books are un-put-downable and very well written. Another stellar outing!

What do you get when you cross journalism and Hollywood? Probably a whole lot of gossip. Or you could throw in some diamonds and you might be close to someone's dream. Nancy Cole Silverman has written that mystery. It's fast paced. with just the right amount of mystery and intrigue. FTC Full Disclosure - A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

This is a great book; this is the third book in the A Carol Childs Mystery series by Nancy Cole Silverman. Carol Childs is a radio reporter; she is investigating a series of Beverly Hills jewelry heists. She soon realizes that her FBI boyfriend is also working the same case. She is determined to find the truth even if it becomes a race for the facts, pitting them against one another. This book has a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. This was such a great read and full of surprises. I am looking forward to reading the next book by this great author. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Within all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and Rodeo Drive, someone is stealing expensive jewels and getting away with it. So far. This was a really great cozy which I found very entertaining and which I could not put down. The sneakiness of the jewelry heists had so many steps involved that I was totally mesmerized by the complexity. I really like the main character, Carol, as well. She seems to have her head on straight and thinks before she acts. This is a great series and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys cozies. While there is a boyfriend in the picture, her every thought isn't about him. Bunny reminded me of the neighbor in Two Broke Girls, Jennifer Coolidge, not really all there, but looks good. Ha!! Thanks to Henery Press for approving me for another great title and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
