From the Publisher:
With a divorce from her cheating husband of ten years pending and her high-profile broadcasting career abruptly ended by TV executives who wanted a "younger face," Alison Reynolds feels there's nothing keeping her in LA any longer. Summoned back home to Sedona, Arizona, by the death of a childhood friend, she seeks solace in the comforting rhythms of her parents' diner, the Sugarloaf Café, and launches an on-line blog as therapy for others who have been similarly cut loose.||But when threatening posts begin appearing, Ali finds out that running a blog is far more up-close and personal--and far more dangerous--than sitting behind a news desk. Suddenly something dark and deadly is swirling around her life. And now Ali is a target...and marked for death.
Annotation:
The author of two bestselling mystery series (the Joanna Brady and J.P. Beaumont series) introduces a new heroine, whose attempt at a fresh start in life could end quite abruptly and unpleasantly. When 45-year-old Los Angeles TV news anchor Alison Reynolds's life implodes--both her employer and her husband replace her with a younger woman--she decides to go home and take stock in Sedona, Arizona, where her parents run a diner. There, she initiates two new and unexpectedly hazardous ventures: investigating the disappearance of her friend Reenie, recently diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease, and starting a new blog.
Author Bio
Judith A. Jance
Judith A. Jance is the best-selling author of dozens of mysteries. Born in South Dakota and raised in Arizona, she knew she wanted to become a writer by the time she reached second grade. That ambition was foiled, however, in the 1960s, when the University of Arizona denied her admission to its creative writing program because, as one professor told her, girls "ought to be teachers or nurses." Instead, she earned a bachelor's degree in English and teaching and a master's degree in library science. Her first husband harbored similar ambitions and was allowed into the program, after which, he "imitated Faulkner and Hemingway primarily by drinking too much and writing too little," as Jance has said. Ultimately, the couple divorced, and he later died from the complications of alcoholism. Jance supported her two children by selling life insurance, but in the early morning before they woke up, she began writing crime fiction. In 1985 she published her first book, UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY, which featured Seattle homicide detective J.P. Beaumont. He has since appeared in several more novels and is among Jance's most popular protagonists. She also writes a series revolving around Joanna Brady, the sheriff of a small county in Arizona, and another whose main character is an ex-journalist named Ali Reynolds. "One of the wonderful things about being a writer is that everything--even the bad stuff--is usable," Jance has said. She explained that years of being married to an alcoholic have helped her write about J.P. Beaumont, who has a drinking problem, and that her time as a single mother contributed to the back story she created for Joanna Brady. "And then there's the evil creative writing professor in HOUR OF THE HUNTER and KISS OF THE BEES," she has quipped, "but that's another story."

Praise

San Diego Union-Tribune
"J.A. Jance is one of today's leading crime writers, thanks to two solid series....This stand-alone thriller shares their virtues--an intriguing plot, colorful characters--and should find an equally appreciative audience." 12/18/2005
