Kirkus Reviews calls The Big Lead, “the beginning of a promising new series,” with a “wonderfully relatable protagonist.” The winner of the Bronze Star in the Readers Favorite 2016 Book Contest has an “endearingly human heroine” (Publishers Weekly) who “holds nothing back in pursuing [the truth].”
Stella Reynolds is new to the job, new to the state, and new to making mistakes in front of thousands of people, but that’s exactly what she signs up for when she takes a reporting job in Bozeman, Montana. Being on live TV in a small town has never been so funny, until Stella covers the towns first murders in years.
When the prime suspect’s girlfriend enlists Stella to help clear his name, she uncovers another shocking crime that could expose a handful of powerful insiders.
Who is honest, who can’t be trusted and who committed the murders? Stella is on a tight deadline to find out. Can she help free an innocent man, or will the real culprit get away with murder?
