This time around, Ellie is scouting locations for a documentary video to be shot at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Lake Geneva is an enclave populated by powerful, influential "old money" families cocooned inside their mansions for generations. Ellie expects a leisurely shoot, free of the danger and murder she seems to attract like a magnet. As she returns home, her thoughts are on daughter Rachel, now 15 and not so easy for a single mom to
handle. At a rest area between Lake Geneva and Chicago, Ellie overhears a cell phone conversation and pauses to converse with a troubled young woman. Seconds later, a pick up truck speeds past and the woman standing beside her is shot. A shaken Ellie vows she won't get involved this time but one clue leads to another until she's up to her eyebrows in a murder mystery germinating for thirty years.
Ellie's widowed father and her best friend Susan Siler try to warn her off the hunt for clues, but she needs a distraction. Ex-husband Barry has his girlfriend du jour. Rachel is spending more time with Barry and his girlfriend than she is at home. Her lover David Linden has been less than attentive. And her old friend Fouad has worries of his own. So sleuthing
it is, in the best Ellie Foreman style.
What do the death of a young girl thirty years ago and the recent sniper incident have in common? The deeper Ellie digs for truth the worse it looks for Luke Sutton. The feelings Luke ignites in Ellie are more powerful than anything she ever felt with David.Read more ›
This fourth Ellie Foreman mystery continues to display the same wit, suspense, and thoughtfulness seen in the previous novels. Ellie's family once again plays a major role as her teenage daughter has a masters in the art of manipulation and is becoming close to Ellie's ex-husband's new girlfriend who just happens to be an ex-Playboy Bunny. When Ellie's own father shares a secret that shakes her to the core it forces her to look closely at the relationships within her family. Hellmann has created a thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating read in a series that continues to delight and engage the reader.
Since Ellie was the last person to speak to her, the police talk to her at length. Then Daria's mother and sister visit asking Ellie for any information she has as to why Daria was shot. They ask her assistance in finding out more.
When Ellie does a little digging, she finds a murder from thirty years ago and wonders what the connection might be. She also meets Luke Sutton. Ellie finds herself attracted to him, but she is concerned because he seems to be very involved in these murders. She works harder to uncover the truth, hoping to clear Luke in the process.
I had never read any books in this series. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading others. Ellie is a very likeable character. The setting is well written and inviting. I found this to be a book you kept wanting to read to find out who did it and why. I highly recommend this book.

Hellmann is a good plotter. She has the ability to give enough of a sense of place for the reader to feel connected without also being overwhelmed by the details. While I enjoy her characters, I do sometimes find that Ellie worries about things that wouldn't faze me while ignoring situations that would have me blowing a gasket. This does make me examine Ellie's motivations, and sometimes I find that Ellie is behaving more in character than I had thought at first glance. A SHOT TO DIE FOR is the fourth book in a series that keeps improving.
