Who, What, Where, When, Die (An Avery Shaw Mystery Book 1) Kindle Edition
First, she had to cover a story on a barricaded gunman who likes to dance naked in his window. Second, she's receiving death threats with her morning newspaper. Lastly, and most importantly, her mom keeps vetoing her outfit choices.
It's all in a day's work for this hardworking, if easily distracted, reporter.
Avery Shaw is hot on the trail of the story, even if it means tangling with her hot ex-boyfriend -- the county sheriff -- and the equally hot, if slightly shadier pawnshop owner down the street.
Getting the story is going to be totally worth it -- that is if Avery can survive the week.
Warning: These books are sarcastic and snarky. Read only if you're not easily offended. This is the first book in the Avery Shaw Mystery series.
From the Publisher
Avery Shaw is more than a reporter, she's a legend
The only thing stronger than her drive is the loyalty she shows others.
The only thing stronger than her need to win is her mouth.
She will never admit defeat ... even if it means risking her life to get the story.
She is the snarkiest snark who ever snarked.

Hadley Hunter has lived a normal life, in a normal suburb, with a normal job and a normal father. All that changes when a grandmother she didn’t even know existed dies and leaves her a fabulous lighthouse on Moonstone Bay Island. Hadley, ready for an adventure, decides to check things out and finds herself plunged into a world she never envisioned. From the naked woman swimming in the ocean outside her back door, to the hot sheriff who seems to be hiding a secret, Hadley is intrigued from the start. That’s before magical things start happening – including to Hadley – and a body washes up on the beach. It seems Moonstone Bay has a killer on the loose … and he may be stalking Hadley, although no one can figure out why. Things are about to spiral for Moonstone Bay’s newest reluctant – and baffled – witch. She has to learn about the past, investigate the present and hold on to her future for dear life. Along the way she will meet a bevy of new friends. Set sail for adventure.
Wicked Witches of the Midwest
Bay Winchester is having a tough week. As the local editor of Hemlock Cove's only newspaper, she just happens to be present when a body is found in an area corn maze. To make matters worse, the police believe the murder may have something to do with the occult. This wouldn't be a problem for a normal reporter, but since Bay is descended from a well-known line of actual witches, the town is understandably on edge. Between the suspicious townspeople, the befuddled police presence and that random hot biker guy that may or may not have something to do with the murder -- Bay has her hands full. When you add the typical family problems, multiplying ghosts -- and one monster of a zit that she's sure came from her aunt's curse -- Bay is just struggling to make it through the week. Of course, when the killer sets his sights on Bay, things could get a whole lot worse.
Death Gate Supernatural Thrillers
Isabella “Izzy” Sage spent her formative years on Belle Isle in Detroit, playing next to the gate that separates the living from the dead as her parents drew a paycheck from the grim reaper council. Then the impossible happened, tragedy struck, and Izzy found herself an orphan. Her grandfather took her away and raised her among the Bruja in New Orleans, although her heart always longed to return to the gate … which felt so much like a part of her. Now, as an adult, Izzy has worked her way up to gatekeeper status and she’s back in the place her childhood ended. She’s the one in charge now … although things don’t go how she hoped. On her very first day, the gate is breached, and the wraith that crosses over is not only murderous but enhanced. Izzy wants to be in charge, but the local reaper council needs help so they send back-up in the form of a magical reaping family.
Scout Randall is more than a witch on a motorcycle. She’s more than the magic she wields. She’s also a woman with a secret past that she can’t remember … a sarcastic wonder who acts before she thinks. The one thing Scout knows with absolute certainty is that she’s got a purpose in life … and that purpose is fighting evil. That’s why she joined the Spells Angels, a biker group with offices all across the world. It’s because of the group that she finds herself in Hawthorne Hollow, where magic is out in the open and Scout finds her powers are constantly on display. She was transferred to the town because they needed help, although no one will tell her what happened to the woman who held the position before her and she’s constantly distracted by the local denizens, including Gunner Stratton, a shifter with a history he would rather keep to himself. Scout is determined to do her job … even if it means taking on the rising dead in Hawthorne Hollow.

To be a writer, you just write books. This book is written. To be an author, you author a concept, create characters, place them in a situation and resolve it. In this case, the writer will probably be stuck in the same commitment-phobic situation as Evanovich finds herself, without the ability to write an ending (happy or otherwise) because the dependence upon the money and fame will not allow the heroine to commit or be completed, even if that simply means growing up.
To me, it seems a real pity, because this writer shows potential for creativity. But she will have to stop copying the current trend, the most “successful” author or the TV show with the highest ratings, and find her own voice. Hope she does.

Avery is a fantastic character; she is convincing as a gamer geek who dresses casually in retro movie t-shirts, her family are nuts and she is amusingly sarcastic. She's just so believable and real.
I had expected more of a dark mystery story for some reason but this is very much a light, entertaining novel with a colourful cast of characters. The mystery element was well done but was sort of in the background for most of the book and the focus was more on the development of Avery's character. It wasn't a bad thing, it just hadn't been what I was expecting so I was pleasantly surprised.
I thought the ending suited the personality of the character. I'm not sure how else to explain it without dropping spoilers, but it definitely left me wanting more books about Avery. This is simply a great story with excellent characters, highly recommended!
the heroine herself.With a choice of two gorgeous men and a propensity for causing and attracting trouble
