Lilly Hawkins is 32 with a wicked sense of humor, and working as a TV news photographer at KJAY in Bakersfield, California. Over the years, she's documented her fair share of violence and tragic accidents, but nothing has prepared her for the day her house address comes across on the police scanner. Fearing the worst for her live-in boyfriend Rod, she's startled when it turns out to be her "Uncle Bud", who's helped raise her since her father died when she was a child. Uncle Bud doesn't exactly walk a straight path, so she is determined to figure out what happened and who shot him - even if it means using her job to find out. With the help of her co-workers, Lilly dives into the tangled past - but will she find out the truth before the killer strikes again?
Although this book is part of the Lilly Hawkins mystery series (book 3), you don't need to be familiar with any of the other books to enjoy this one. (This was my first one!) I loved the no-fear sassiness of Lilly's character! The storyline is fast paced, and it's hard to put the book down. The combination of the mystery mixed with the sarcastic and sharp humor is great. If you enjoy a good mystery, especially with a strong female lead, you'll definitely enjoy this one too!
