Goodreads Excerpt for The Friday Edition:
Christmas is coming to Denver, Colorado, but it isn’t only snow that’s falling.
A beautiful young woman, who also happens to be a Truman County Assistant DA, tumbles from her apartment balcony to her death on Christmas Eve.
The incident is ruled a suicide, but the DA’s sister, newspaper reporter Samantha Church, isn’t buying it.
Feverishly Samantha throws herself into finding out what really happened to her sister. She pursues her sister’s killers, maneuvering through a minefield of intrigue deliberately set out to divert her from the truth. She invariably stumbles when confronted by the inescapable specter of a greater enemy: the alcohol dependency that has already cost her the respect of her peers, and, worse, custody of her daughter.
Samantha must summon the courage to face not only a cartel of criminals, but also her own demons. Physically threatened and betrayed, she nearly defeats herself through her own insecurities and fears. She not only must summon the courage to get beyond her own shortcomings, but she must work quickly to beat her nemesis – a reporter at the major metropolitan daily newspaper, who is also in close pursuit of the developing story.
Can Samantha ultimately prevail, write the biggest story of her career, and finally begin to change her life before it is too late?
My Thoughts on The Friday Edition:
The Friday Edition was a really interesting read. At first, you are going to hate the main character, as there is nothing redeeming about her. She is an alcoholic, divorced, forgetting about her child at times, and completely wallowing in self-pity. When her sister is murdered, her perfect sister, she is not sure what to think. Many seem to think it was suicide, but Samantha knows better. Her sister might have been down at times, but this was not the time of year that she would consider killing herself, let alone in the way that it was done.
I think the book was very well written, and it made you want to turn the pages faster to see what was going to happen next, getting more information, and yet, not wanting the book to end. Grab it now!
