Publisher Description

“There’s a body in my bed. A dead body.”

The call from a friend staying at Sherman’s newest – okay, only – B&B starts Elizabeth Danniher, on a twisting, turning journey where appearances not only deceive, they turn deadly.

When her TV reporter friend Wardell Yardley comes to visit, they take a weekend trip to Yellowstone Park and encounter a surprising set of people. Including a team-building group from social media mega-force VisageTome, a mysterious older couple, and someone from Elizabeth’s childhood.

Elizabeth senses undercurrents in this strange assortment that just about pull her and her friends underwater for good when everyone shows up in her tiny Sherman, Wyoming, town.

Not only is there a murder to solve – and fast – there’s also a new sheriff in town, whose No. 1 rule might be No Sleuthing By Journalists.

Look Live is a TV news term. A reporter appears to be live at a scene, perhaps for an introduction or the toss back to the anchor desk, but in fact the entire report is taped. A misleading perception, carefully set up. Ah, the dangers of deceiving appearances …

Elizabeth, her KWMT-TV colleague Mike Paycik, rancher Tom Burrell, and their supporting staff of idiosyncratic sleuths untangle iwhat happens when it’s not enough to merely …   LOOK LIVE.

I read this Caught Dead In Wyoming series from book 1-5 without stopping. Love all the characters and the "who done it" never fails to embroil me completely. Excellently written with the best wit. The author has her tongue firmly planted.
