This book satisfied my guilty pleasure - a fun mystery that doesn't require a lot of brain power. I listened to it while cleaning and driving and was pleasantly surprised to find an author who can tell a story and not stoop to reality TV level (trashy).

Molly writes for a magazine and is given her big break - becoming a feature writer. Her dream come true is dampened by an estrangement from her cop boyfriend who has a problem with how she gets involved in solving murders. The topic of her new col...more
I'm not sure if this is the last in the series or not but Killer Riff was considerably more entertaining and hectic than the other installments. This time, Molly is promoted from advice columnist to feature writer for the magazine she works at, Zeitgeist. Only thing is, it's not the murder she initially stumbles upon to write about. It is a profile of music producer Russell Elliott. I have to admit that the storyline and plot is better and well-written as opposed to the others simply because it...more
I hate when authors stick to a cookie cutter mold of their first book as a way to write follow up novels. Sheyl Anderson's first book was good, the second, third and forth were exactly the same. There is no evolution of characters, no new characters worth caring about- same plot line, different murderers/people murdered. Save yourself some time, don't get caught up, you will just keep reading thinking "something HAS to happen". I'll save you time.. It doesn't.

Maybe 2.5 stars. I started listening to this shortly before Christmas and didn't finish is until mid-January. I kept getting the characters confused and didn't really care about any of them. Story centers on a dead rock legend and the purported existence of the Hotel Tapes--previously unheard songs that would be worth millions. Do the tapes really exist? Who might have them? Who would kill to get them?
Saw this sitting around and picked it up as something different. After the fact realized that this is late in the series, though any back story really was not necessary. While not bad the book is mostly fluff and does not drive me to find more by the author. The ending 'twist' felt more like a rushed inclusion of a tangential character rather than a missed detail causing the potential culprit to change.

I read the first three of Sheryl J Anderson's books a few years ago and wasn't even aware that she had a forth. I can't really remember the others except that I really liked them and this one was great as well. The characters are vivid, the writing witty, the plot fun and fast paced. I would definitely recommend this novel to anyone--I don't see how they wouldn't like it.
Molly Forrester is back. She has a chance to move up from Zeitgeist advice columnist to feature writer with a story about a dead rock legend's family. The unexpected death of Micah Crowley's best friend leads Molly to uncover quite the cover-up among the two extended families. A solid enough story, entertaining enough for this busy time of year.
Light mystery- good summer read. fourth in the Molly Forrester series
investigative journalist -reminds me of the Shopaholic books with the beautiful women with the name brand clothes.I didn't read the first four. This can stand alone.
I listened to this on audiobook and it was enjoyable. I don't know if it was as engaging as other audiobooks might have been because this is the first one I've tried. Overall, it was a quick story and it made my commute go quickly!
So funny! I really enjoyed this ride! It was funny, engaging, fastpaced, well written, flowed great and kept you guessing. :)

Witty expressions and fast plot. Not a great deal of character development.
