Synopsis from Goodreads: Dana Barry's life is a mess, until she hears The Shopping Channel is auditioning new hosts. She dives right in and is stunned when she lands the job. Her keen eye for detail, knack for knowing what makes people tick and sheer bravado make her perfect for the role.
Then the star host is found shot to death in her office. Dana can't help but involve herself in tracking down the killer. Never one to mind her own business, she winds up at the center of every drama. She also knows the prime suspect is innocent--they happened to have been together on the roof for some "alone time" when they heard the gunshot. His record may not be perfect, but she can tell the single father has a heart of gold. He may even be marriage material--something she'd focus on more if only Detective Marks wasn't so handsome and their chemistry so electric. Dana is so close to having it all if, just this once, she doesn't screw up. But trouble usually comes easier and is always a lot more fun...
My Review: I was really excited to read this one but I could not connect with any of the characters, which in turn made them really hard to root for. I thought the book was written and nicely paced but I just couldn't get into an ultimately stopped reading at about halfway.
