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?

    Intriguing, thoughtful, and strong female lead in Stella, who is also intelligent and more beautiful than she knows ....who can't love and relate to this character??? Stella takes us along as she starts her first job as a news reporter in a small market with a big mystery. Well written and suspenseful with a bit of romance on the side! Loved it!

  • The Big Lead

    This book had suspense, humor and just a touch of romance. A good read, and although I suspected the murderer of “something” I didn’t suspect her of murder. I like surprise endings!

    The character of Stella Reynolds is one of my favorites! Stella meshes with the TV station staff in a way that brings out the best is all of them ( except for a crazy one, but you will have to read on about that!) As Stella follows her big lead, I felt like I was right there with her, experiencing the tension, frustrations and fear that this reporter faces trying to solve a crime. There are fun, quirky characters that add humor to the mix. And a special love interest for the right touch of romance. The Big Lead is a Big Winner!
