I began reading this book because I enjoy anything written by the writing team of Evelyn David. After meeting the new characters and feeling secure and comfy in the story, I was hit by the surprise murder of the allegedly compromised General Contractor.

As expected Maggie Brooks, our new sleuth friend, goes on the hunt for the true story. That was the only predictable part of this book. I was racing through all emotions while holding my breath trying to figure out who the killer was and the true reason for the murder. The book took me from grief (Maggie's loss of spouse,) to an online friendship, romance, suspense, murder, and more!

What I truly loved about this new series, was it's complete believability. Maggie rings true as a reporter, friend, mother, and romantic interest. Maggie does not take unrealistic risks or is excessively nosy. Maggie is someone I do want to get to know more about and I look forward to her next headline!

What a great read in this debut series by Evelyn David. Maggie stumbled upon a conspiracy involving the building of a mall and local politics. Not everyone is happy and when a murder is committed, this case opens wide up and Maggie will have to shut the door on a killer before the door is closed on her. Maggie's determination to solve this murder keeps this book flowing as it nears the end in this suspenseful and enticing mystery. This is a well-written and fast-paced drama with likable characters in a small-town setting. I look forward to more investigative reporting from Maggie in the next book in this delightful new series.

Sorry I can't agree with all the 5-star reviews. The basic plot is OK, but some of Maggie's actions just don't make sense. Without giving too much away, Maggie is supposed to be an intelligent, college-educated reporter. She is a widow with 2 kids, and strikes up an online friendship with another young widow through an online grief group. So far, so good. She then proceeds to tell this cyber-pal everything going on in her life, especially about the murder, and even what her kids' activities are.

She talks about all the suspects, using their real names, why she thinks they could be the murderer, and what she's going to do next - DUH!!! She does all this even though she never met this cyber-pal, and knows nothing about her. It doesn't even occur to her that this other woman could possibly live in the same area, know the same people, or even be involved. Sorry, but this just doesn't ring true for anyone with half a brain. As a reporter, she knows she must maintain a distance from the crime, she should check her facts before revealing her suspicions, and she certainly shouldn't be using a complete stranger for a sounding board. She tells her cyber-pal more than she tells her editor, and what little she tells the editor has already been told to her friend. On top of that, she becomes attracted to two of the male suspects.

At times, the authors get confused about who is writing the story, and whether it's supposed to be written in the first person from Maggie's perspective, or the third person. The authors switched perspectives in the same paragraph.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a nice blend of mystery, and comfort, tension, and a very enjoyable heroine who really rang true. She manages to be clever, enterprising, and vulnerable. I certainly hope to see more in this series from Evelyn David.

The mystery was not easy to figure out. I enjoyed the characterizations. The book was one that I wanted to finish, so read straight through with as few interruptions as I could manage.

Maggie is a widow who works part time as a reporter on a small town paper. At one time she was in the big time working at the forefront of the news.

She is dealing with ongoing grief, raising 2 children and trying to get through each day.

She is a smart woman.

Which is why I was surprised at so many of her actions. She shares information online with someone she has never met. A reporter would not do that.

She regularly puts herself in jeopardy even though she is the only parent left for her 2 children. I think that a really smart woman would not do interviews with possible suspects in a murder and not let someone know where she is and what she is doing.

I like Maggie, I liked the other characters in the book. I enjoyed the book, but at times I had to overcome my common sense and just go with the flow.

I would recommend this book for the mystery. I would recommend this book for anyone who might be dealing with the loss of a loved one, there are times when grief is dealt with in a manner which is helpful.

Overall, a good book, but keep in mind that in order to move the story forward, Maggie takes risks -not in a good way.

Zoned for Murder and its main character, Maggie Brooks, was a nice read.
Maggie, whose husband died fourteen months earlier, is a reporter for a small town newspaper. She is having trouble moving on. Her thoughts are always on the past and why her husband was killed by a hit and run driver. After a few visits with her therapist she is told she doesn’t need the visits any more, she just needs to get through the year.
When she is assigned to cover the Town Council meeting where a controversial law about a proposed outlet mall is to be debated her life gets turned around. She meets the players of both sides—Mickey Towers who wanted to build the mall in a depressed area of Somerville and a coalition of business owners called MOM (Move the Outlet Mall) who all own businesses in the rich town next door, Milford. Elizabeth Wong and Mary Jane Gordon are the main contributors of this organization.
Tom Maloney is the mayor of Somerville and wants this mall real bad. Some say so bad that he will lie, cheat and steal to get it done. Sean O’Neal is a local construction company who lives in The Flats, the nickname of Somerville, and is about to lose his home and business of this all goes through.
What happens next is pretty obvious. People hate each, others threaten each other and some end up dead. Being the reporter, Maggie gets caught in the middle. What happens? I can’t tell you. Buy the book and find out.
I really enjoyed this little caper. I felt a connection with the characters and they all felt real to me. The flow was good and my interest was kept. Great short read!
