#BookReview: The Big Lead by Libby Kirsch

Reviewer: Samantha

I received a review copy

the big leadSummary:

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 job as a TV reporter in the mountains of Bozeman, Montana. Being on live TV in a small town has never been so funny, until Stella covers the town’s 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?


The perfect way to end my 2015 review schedule – a bang on, 5 star book! The Big Lead reeled me in from the beginning. Witty, authentic, and oh so clever, I had trouble putting this down. A lot of action but nothing overwhelming, unpredictable at times, and 100% intriguing. While I may have had a pretty good idea of a certain employee being involved somehow, I really wasn’t sure how and the ending had me gasping. Plenty of comic relief here in between the mystery and murder, and one I highly recommend for your 2016 reading list!

5 stars
