Veronika Layne. Sassy, tattooed, twenty-something newspaper reporter. Never saw herself working for the “man.”
When her small weekly is swallowed up by Singh Media Group, that’s exactly where she ends up. Stuck writing fluff pieces that might as well be ads, how can she resist digging into rumors that a real estate developer is destroying native burial grounds? Warned away at every turn by her editor, she worries whether the story will see the light of day.
And dazzled by her sexy rival-turned-coworker, what is she going to do about her love life?
Read on for my thoughts on Veronika Layne Gets The Scoop. No true spoilers, promise.
Alright, can I just say this one thing? More, Please!
I love this girl. She is kick butt, take no names, true to herself and determined to get the story – in spite of what anyone else wants her to do.
Now I have never been inside a newspaper office with all the things happening at once, the chaos, the politics and the sense of urgency to meet deadlines and get the story. But I don’t have to be, because this story took me right into the center of the action.
There is a big story out there and Veronika is after it. Through turns that I didn’t see coming, we are taken alongside Veronika as she searches out leads, follows clues and uncovers the truth.
And it’s got the love interest as well. All around, a really good story with a side of romance. But to me the main story was always about Veronika getting to the truth.
I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who wants a fast paced, entertaining, wild ride of a story. Looking forward to reading the next installment of this series.
