Unfortunately, that publication specializes in tabloid gossip. Ava takes the job (a woman's gotta eat and pay the bills right?) and takes off to Aruba on her first assignment: find out the real

Ava Cole is an award-winning journalist and can take on any injustice with no problem to right a wrong that is happening, but when the injustice is in her own personal life does she have that same fight in her? Clifton Edwards is a man that has a big heart but no one to share it with. When he meets Ava Cole she makes his heart skip a beat until she opens her mouth and gives him a piece of her mind!

When Ava and Cliff end up working for the same tabloid magazine it is difficult and at first very r

A Good Man is Hard to Find follows journalist Ava Cole as she covers a story for the National Star on music diva, India Wright's wedding in Aruba. In her coverage of the wedding, Ava finds out that there is something that India and her groom, Fredericko, are hiding. Ava will risk her life, literally, to find out what that is.
In the Author's Note at the beginning of the book, Billingsley states that she wants her regular readers to give this book a chance. When I read that, I started to get worr

Enjoyable read! This book was different than your normal ReShonda Tate Billingsley books. This was more of a mystery/ who done it type of book. The title does fit the book once you read it. I must say it started out a little too slow for me. Think I'll pull a Victoria Christopher Murray book off the shelf.

I really enjoyed the storyline. The secrets and the attractions between the characters kept the story flowing.
Drama, suspense, sexy men, romance ...Did I say DRAMA?! I can't not wait for the next installment. Wonderful. I recommend this to anyone who loves Mystery.

I loved it. I would definitely read it again. I loved the plot and I finished the book in one sitting. So I read it in about 3 hours :)

Ava Cole is an award-winning journalist for an esteemed magazine. After five years on the job she is being downsized because Newswire is shutting down the investigative division. The only choice she has is to work for The National star, a tabloid magazine. Chasing after celebrities is beneath her abilities but jobs are scarce. Ava has bills that need to be paid and a sister (Mia) she takes care of, so she, as her grandmother would say, sells her soul to the devil.

Ava doesn’t have it in her heart
