Go forth and buy yourself this book...


By Hank Phillippi Ryan

Could an innocent e-mail offer really result in murder, mayhem and a multimillion-dollar fraud ring? The last person to ask is dead - but that won't keep Charlotte McNally from poking around. Face it: in the cutthroat world of television journalism, this seasoned reporter knows that she'd better pull out all the stops or kiss her cushy job (and that means her life) goodbye.

But all too soon her investigation leads her straight to Josh Gelston, who is a little too a lot too handsome. Could she trust a word he said? Charlie might have a nose for news, but men are a whole other story. Which means she is putting her job, life and heart on the line....


The woman who wrote this book, Hank (a female Hank) is the investigative reporter at the news station I used to work at in Boston before I moved to NYC I was actually her intern back in 1996. Then I was her producer a few years ago. I was her critique partner on this book and let me tell you, it's great! So funny and it has great characters. Not to mention an insider's peek into the world of TV News. Oh and it got a TOP PICK from Romantic Times--and you know how hard those are to score.

So...GO BUY! You won't regret it.

I just saw it and B&N and it's in my To Buy pile, which will have to wait since I just bought a crap load of books lately!

Oh Mar--You're amazing. Thank you so much for your very kind mention..what a treat to do my daily click onto visit C and C--and see my beautiful cover front and center.
We just had an amazing standing room only signing at a Boston Borders--very exciting.
After thirty years working as a TV reporter, after having wired myself with hidden cameras and chased down crimnals---the thought of people reading my book? Is even scarier.
Do you ever get used to it? Well, Mar, you probably do--you get raves everyday!
