Ali Reynolds gets sacked for a younger newscaster, and then becomes involved in solving the mysterious death of her best friend, who has been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig;s disease.) She becomes a blogger, and a detective, while dealing with her own personal issues, including wrongful termination and divorce. ( )

I loved this - the switching between blog posts and the action itself was well done. I liked the characters, too! ( )

Ali Reynolds, L.A. TV anchor, is fired from her job for being to old. Her husband who works for the same network is more concerned with his position than with helping her. Ali begins suit against the TV station, learns her husband is cheating, moves to Sedona to her house and her son Chris sets her up a blog to get her story out.

At this time, her best friend is killed when she supposedly drove over a cliff in the mountains, due to her medical diagnosis. The police call it a suicide but Ali needs more than their word. Along with blog threats that scare her, she begins to inquire into Reenie’s death.

Excellent read, good info on ALS disease, spouse abuse, and blogging in general. ( )

Pro: mystery. Con: almost everything else. I especially *didn't* like the whole blog scenario. It seemed stupid, contrived, and unlikely. I felt like the MC presented as being sort of stupid in terms of what she was sharing in her blog. Not sure I'll continue with the series. Maybe. ( )

Poorly written with several typos throughout. ( )
