Baker & Taylor
Fired from her high-profile broadcasting career by TV executives looking for a "younger" woman and in the process of divorcing her adulterous husband, journalist Alison Lawson heads home to Sedona, Arizona, to recover, launching an online blog as therapy for herself and others facing similar situations, but threatening posts lead her to suspect that she has become the target of a killer. Original.


The end of her high-profile broadcasting career came too soon for TV journalist Alison Reynolds—bounced off the air by executives who wanted a "younger face." With a divorce from her cheating husband of ten years also pending, there is nothing keeping her in L.A. any longer. Cut loose from her moorings, Ali is summoned back home to Sedona, Arizona, by the death of a childhood friend. Once there she seeks solace in the comforting rhythms of her parents' diner, the Sugarloaf Café, and launches an on-line blog as therapy for others who have been similarly cut loose.

But when threatening posts begin appearing, Ali finds out that running a blog is far more up-close and personal than sitting behind a news desk. And far more dangerous. Suddenly something dark and deadly is swirling around her life . . . and a killer may be hunting her next.

I found the "dear diary" blog very distracting. I have a blog of my own and don't care much for the facebook-type revelations. I thought some of the tech side was unrealistic as well. Perhaps it worked because she was a media personality to begin with. The story took a long time to get going. There was a startling "Oh-No!" moment that I really liked. I suppose I'm a jaded detective story reader so it was nice to be surprised. I thought the ending was rushed and left one thread hanging. I liked Ali though and am looking forward to the next in the series.

Definitely not one of Jance's best efforts.

A good series. Try to read them in order as Jance builds on each one though they all stand alone.
