I received a copy of this e-book in exchange for a review with my honest opinion.
‘Buried Leads’, the second book in the ‘Headline in High Heels’ series, quickly grabbed my attention and held it. This was one instance where I wrongly judged a book by it’s cover, but the strong writing proved me wrong!
The feisty lead character, Nichelle, is a journalist on the cops and courts beat, who does a little sleuthing on the side to fill the gaps in her articles. Perhaps it was my interest in journalism that kept me particularly hooked, and I enjoyed reading about the ins and outs of the paper she worked for.
The main story Nichelle was working revolved around a murder; throughout the book, as she pieced the puzzle together, the reader was kept guessing as to what had happened. I appreciated this; it can be pretty boring reading a book when you’ve figured out the ending before you’re 50 pages in!
Throw in a cast of interesting characters, a few handsome men, and a hint of political scandal, and ‘Buried Leads’ was a great read. For lovers of chick lit mystery, I recommend checking out this series – although I’d suggest you start with the first book in the series, unlike me! Amazon sells the paperback and the e-book, as well as the first book in the series. Oh, and did I mention the third instalment is coming out in April? Something to look forward to!
