Welcome to Dru’s Cozy Report. Today’s read are not “exactly” cozies, but recent mysteries that I had the pleasure of reading.
Crime reporter Nichelle Clarke’s days can flip from macabre to comical with a beep of her police scanner. Then an ordinary accident story turns extraordinary when evidence goes missing, a prosecutor vanishes, and a sexy Mafia boss shows up with the headline tip of a lifetime. As Nichelle gets closer to the truth, her story gets more dangerous. Armed with a notebook, a hunch, and her favorite stilettos, Nichelle races to splash these shady dealings across the front page before this deadline becomes her last.
This is a good start to an exciting new series featuring Nichelle Clarke who is a gutsy news reporter whose simple investigation turns into a risky exposé that saw our heroine tackle the police, a mobster and a competitive co-worker. I love the concept of this well-written mystery that pulled me in immediately and kept me guessing as this captivating drama came to its explosive conclusion. Led by a believable cast of characters that was diverse in their role where everyone was suspect, this was an enjoyable read and I can’t wait for the next book in this appealing series.
