About the book:
Erica Sparks is a beautiful and ambitious reporter who has just landed her dream job at Global News Network in New York. And while it was hard to leave Jenny, her cherished eight-year-old daughter, in the custody of her ex-husband, Erica is determined to succeed in the cutthroat world of big-time broadcasting. She can only hope her troubled past won’t come back to sabotage her dreams.
Although the wounds from her divorce are still fresh, Erica can’t deny the chemistry between her and her new producer, the handsome and empathic Greg Underwood. But a relationship is the last thing she wants right now.
On her very first assignment, Erica inadvertently witnesses—and films—a horrific tragedy, scooping all the other networks. Mere weeks later, another tragedy strikes—again, right in front of Erica and her cameras. Her career skyrockets overnight, but Erica is troubled. Deeply. This can’t just be coincidence. But what is it?
Erica will stop at nothing to uncover the truth. But she has to make sure disaster—and her troubled past—don’t catch up with her first.

My Comments: I read this book after quite a dry spell with reading and I found it very engaging. The book was somewhat predictable, but not completely, and the not completely part made it quite a page turner. Erica lives the American dream. She is successful, beautiful, curious and just plain smart. Her quest for success brings her into contact with some people who are not all that ethical. Those unethical people (quite rightly so) cause her to question the others around her. She also, however, tends to find people who can help her in her search for truth.

Erica has a drive to find truth. This is what makes her such a great reporter. However, it also causes her and her close friends and family problems. Too many “events” just seem to happen when Erica is around. I wondered why and had my suspicions throughout the book.

If you enjoy clean, suspense novels, you will love this book. I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review, which I have given. This is a four star book!
