 Book Blurb: 
When the Richmond police offer an exclusive in exchange for help with a case, nothing—not even a costume party—stops crime reporter Nichelle Clarke from making Manolo tracks to the crime scene. The hunt leads her to a televangelist’s compound in the Virginia countryside where the Reverend may be more interested in fat stacks of cash than he is saving wayward souls.
With two sexy guys tangled up in Nichelle’s story—and in her heart—work and love are on a crash course for disaster. Pressure pours in from every corner, including a faceless new competitor that means the deadline is always five minutes ago. As secrets threaten and the truth becomes her lifeline, Nichelle must unmask the killer and nail down the story before she’s snared in the carefully-constructed web.

Review: I absolutely adore the Headlines in High Heels Mystery series. If you haven't read anything in this series, you need to start right now! You can start with this one though, because they can be read stand alone. (You will want to read the rest of the series, though, because these books rock)

There's a great deal of romance, suspense and humor in Nichelle's life and that's what keeps me coming back for more. Plus who can resist a story that has a televangelist. Cos you always know these guys are just a touch slimy, even though they want to save your soul!  As soon as Nichelle gets to the church, you know that something isn't right there.

Nichelle's investigation involves the death of a homeless girl. So your seeing a real sad aspect of life there along with the crazy world of the tv evangelist.

This is a really emotional mystery, as you get caught up in the life of Jasmine and her homeless friends and then later her friend at The Way Of Life Ministries. I especially loved Picasso, Jasmine's artist friend.

Oh and don't think Nichelle's love life is taking a back burner, because it is not. That always makes for fun reading. There's a love triangle going on here, but its not one that will leave readers too frustrated for her to make a choice. Actually, you kind of want her to have both of them. AH...I can't decide if I like Joey or Kyle better.

If that wasn't enough, there's a mystery blogger trying to one up her on the headlines too.

Great mystery! Great book! Great series!
