Book News... LIVE Ringer by Lynda Fitzgerald
About LIVE Ringer
LIVE Ringer features reluctant investigative reporter, Allie Grainger, who returns to Cape Canaveral to claim her inheritance. Her only plans when she arrives are to give herself time to mourn her aunt’s recent death and the end of her six-year marriage to a philandering worm of a diplomat, but on her first full day home, she stumbles on a woman's body floating in the water at the Canaveral jetty, a woman who looks enough like Allie to be her twin sister.
Four men enter Allie’s life. Joe Odum is a childhood friend, all grown up and turned sheriff’s deputy. Cord Arbutten, the county sheriff, is the second, and he makes it clear he doesn’t want Allie back in town. The third is the editor of the local paper, who hints to Allie that he was her aunt’s lover. The last is a stranger who shows up in town the day the body is found. Allie is drawn to him until she learns that he was suspected of killing his wife a few years back.
Allie is pretty sure one of them is the killer, and she begins to suspect she might be his next victim. Summoning up courage that surprises even her, she begins trying to discover the truth; but when the bullets start flying, Allie gets the shock of her life.
LIVE Ringer is the first in a mystery series set in Brevard County, Florida. LIVE Ammo is scheduled to be released in late 2011.
