From the publisher of Confessions of a Red Herring
As a reporter, she’s used to covering the news.
Now she’s the headline.
Alex Vlodnachek has been a reporter for 12 years, a P.R. rep for three months, and a murder suspect for all of 24 hours. When her agency’s double-dealing CEO is stabbed, scheming co-workers cast the new redhead as a compelling red herring. The story is media catnip—especially her salacious nickname: Vlod the Impaler.
Even Alex has to admit she looks guilty.
Out of a job and under suspicion, Alex is running low on cash, when she’s visited by a second disaster: her family. Soon her tiny bungalow is bursting with her nearest and not-so-dearest. To keep herself out of jail—and save what’s left of her sanity—Alex returns to her reporting roots. She goes undercover to reclaim her life, break the story, and unmask a murderer. Pretty much in that order.
What she doesn’t know: The killer also has a to-do list.
And Alex is on it.
Filled with snarky fun, this crime caper takes the reader on a wild ride inside the world of public relations. Alex is one of those people who just seems to have stuff happen to her. Her great plans are often upset by others, much like in real life, making Alex feel like a good girl caught in bad circumstances.
There are hard lines drawn in the sand on the characters in Confessions of a Red Herring. And while I would have liked to have seen the bad guys not completely black-hearted, their roles suited the plot very well. The stakes continued to be elevated for Alex until a final showdown with the ultimate bad guy.
This was a fun story that kept me reading, laughing, and wondering, who the ultimate bad guy really was. A good read for fans of madcap capers.
