Sign Off (Caught Dead In Wyoming, Book 1)
Divorce a husband, lose a career ... grapple with a murder.
TV journalist Elizabeth "E.M." Danniher will tell you she committed two sins - she didn't stay young, and she made an enemy of a powerful news executive - her ex. She used to break national news. Now her top story as the "Helping Out!" reporter at dinky KWMT-TV in Sherman, Wyoming is getting a refund for a defective toaster.
Tough, funny and determined, Elizabeth wrestles with isolation, keeping a professional edge, and an evolving self-image. Is Wyoming - the land of cattle, cowboys, tumbleweeds, and fewer than six people per square mile - her new home or a road to permanent obscurity?
Soon she's in a battle of wills with ex-football player turned journalist Mike Paycik, who sees her as a handy rung on his career ladder. And there's the matter of a deputy sheriff-missing or murdered? Elizabeth finds herself investigating at the insistence of a girl who's set on proving her father's innocence. Not that enigmatic rancher Thomas Burrell makes investigating easy for an amateur detective.
But Elizabeth won't fade to black without a fight, no matter how final some might want to make her SIGN OFF.
