    I loved this book The main character is a reporter on TV so you get to learn a lot about how TV news works behind the scenes which was really interesting There was also a lot of action and a little bit of romance which was fun The series is called Fat City Mysteries so I thought maybe the main character would be obsessed with her weight but she really wasn t she waslike a regular

    This made for a good summer reading mystery I enjoyed the North Carolina setting which included the mountains in this installment of the series , and the main character s love interest in this second in the series seemsrealistic I d probably give this one a 3.5, given the chance, but liked it well enough to round up instead of down this morning.
