Entertaining follow up to Veronika Layne Gets the Scoop. I found Veronika to be more developed and the mystery more intriguing than in the first book. My one critique is that the ending wrapped up too quickly--however, this may be because I wanted more! I definitely will be reading the next book in the series.

You do not have to read the first book to understand the events of the second. However, book one will help you better understand Veronika and Aidan's relationship, as well as the dynamics

I had fun creating the story for another Veronika Layne mystery. The plot reflects some current interests of mine -- TV house-flipping shows, renovations, and historic preservation. I also enjoyed making Veronika sexier but also deeper as a character. I hope you enjoy this book as much as the first one.

Veronika Layne has gotten a bit philosophical, and I liked that, even while she still sniffs out news that has an impact on the living history of her town--this time historic Victorian houses. I love learning about bits of local history I never knew or understood, and Veronika helped again! She is settling in to her corporate newshound role but just a little too obsessed with an absent lover for excitement--I just wanted to shake her sometimes. A sexy TV personality moonlighting as a constructio ...more

Veronika Layne Has a Nose for the News is a fast, funny adventure starring a sassy reporter who’s like Nancy Drew crossed with Stevie Nicks. She says it best herself: 'I’m a unicorn-loving rainbow warrior, an earth muffin, a bona fide mudraker.' She’s smart, sexy, and socially conscious, but struggles to live up to her own ideals as she pulls on the loose threads of a powerful story in a small California community. I love books about journalists, and Julia Park Tracey has managed to write one wi ...more

Veronika Layne is an independent, opinionated, environmentally-conscious twenty-something journalist who has recently been merged into a large media conglomerate; in the process she has been knocked down the the bottom of the corporate ladder, relegated to covering the fluffiest of fluff pieces. She wants two things out of life: to report real news, and to bask in the affection of her new boyfriend, Aidan.

Too bad that Aidan is flying off to Columbia University to get a Master’s Degree in journal

Great Book!
This is a great book; this is the second book in the Hot Off the Press series by Julia Park Tracey. Veronika Layne is a sassy reporter who is always looking for a story. She is trying to get the scoop on a Hollywood house flipper, a pirate and his treasure. If you are looking for a great fun book then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

It's always great to receive fun new books in the mail for free, it's even better when the book turns out to be a fun, quick read. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Veronika Layne. I enjoyed the quick pace of the writing and the sarcastic humor of the lead character. I enjoyed the book so much that I am now off to find book #1.

Loved the first one, loved this one, looking forward to the third. The author's other books are also well worth reading, but fall into different genres than the Veronika series.
