This week I'm featuring Interview with a Dead Editor (Lucky Lexie Mysteries #1) by Shanna Swendson. I loved this author's Enchanted, Inc. series, so I'm excited for something new from her.
Alexa “Lucky Lexie” Lincoln has always had a nose for news and a knack for being first on the scene whenever there’s a big story. Now her luck seems to have run out. First, she loses her reporting job. Then she gets an interview for a job at a small-town paper, only to find the editor dead on the newsroom floor. That makes her a suspect in the eyes of local policeman Wes Mosby.
To make matters worse, someone sabotages her alibi, and a freak ice storm strands her in town. That’s when she learns that this idyllic little town right out of a movie set is full of secrets, including people with uncanny abilities and the ghost who really runs the newspaper.
To clear her name (and get the job), Lexie will have to find the real killer—a killer who seems to think she knows a lot more than she does. If she’s not careful, she could be the next victim.
A magical new mystery series from the author of Enchanted, Inc.
I'd feared I was heading to the middle of nowhere, metaphorically speaking, but I didn't realize it might be literal until I saw the "Sterling Mills, Population 3,500" sign on the side of the road.
I made my way carefully up the stairs. The sun hadn't hit this area, so there was still ice on the steps. I unlocked the door, and as soon as I went inside, I knew something was wrong. My bag had been emptied all over the floor, and books lay in front of the bookcase. The place had been ransacked.
