"There's a body in my bed. A dead body."
The call from a longtime friend staying at Sherman's newest — okay, only — B&B brings murder close to home for Elizabeth Danniher and starts her 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. And then Wardell’s phone call pulls Elizabeth into that first-on-the-scene situation that makes the Cottonwood County Sheriff’s Department decidedly cranky.
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, their other idiosyncratic partners in crime-solving – and even her dog Shadow — must dig deep to discover what happens when it's not enough to merely ... LOOK LIVE.

The series keeps you coming back for more lighthearted storytelling involving likeable and loveable characters. Theyre a nice reprieve from todays volatile world, bringing back wholesomeness, and new friendships forming, through life changes...and happy endings are always welcome.
I love this series. I am learning so much about a part of the U.S. I had no real knowledge of...all the while following the twists and turns the murder mysteries take. The characters are interesting and entertaining. The author keeps you guessing right to the end!
I loved reading this book because you kept the suspense going to the end. I have read all the previous books in the series and loved everyone of them. You are really fantastic with mysteries can't wait to read the next book. I have also 1-7 books of this series. Thanks!!!
Started with book one. Now on my way to 5 ...totally enjoyable..great fun read.
Patricia McLinn writes an excellent mystery! We have all the characters, Elizabeth, Mike, Tom, Jennifer, Diana, and a new sheriff plus attorney Abbott. Let's start with a friend of Elizabeth's coming for a visit. Off Elizabeth, Mike and her friend, Dell go to Yellowstone Park. Let the fun begin! We have hits of a mystery going on , plot twists but not much really happens until the vacation is over and they back home. Death occurs and more things happen, oh the plot twists. Add in a time constraint and even more happens. Read this excellent mystery which I highly recommend!
