Shauna J. Bogart, Sacramento talk show host, is devastated when her fellow talk show host Dr. Hipster is murdered. When the police rule it a suicide, she starts to investigate. This debut grabbed me from the start with the real characters and the fast paced twisty plot.

Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.
This book was all right. At first, I thought I was going to really like it. It had some good humor, it was a murder mystery and a radio talk show host as the protagonist(Shauna). I especially liked the way the author periodically summarized the open issues through out the book. The negative: There was really no suspense. It felt kind of choppy to me.

A rather rudimentary mystery set in the world of Sacramento talk radio. While I enjoyed the setting and the sections about the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee, I found the detective unlikable, and mystery itself wasn't much.
Joyce, who knew? This is terrific. I love that I know you!
