Audible. Edited for Death by Michele Drier is a mystery told mainly through the eyes of the narrator, Amy Hobbes. Amy is the managing editor for a local newspaper in a small town in Southern California. She and her best reporter, Clarice, are covering the death of a U.S. Senator and World War II hero when a couple of other deaths in the area appear to be linked in some way to the Senator. All of the victims had ties to the local hotel that the Senator's family owns. Pretty soon, Amy, who is also aided by a Holocaust survivor and her old friend (and, now, new boyfriend) Phil, gets in pretty deep as things begin to heat up.
It was an enjoyable experience 'playing' Amy for this book. She's smart, savvy, and independent but finds herself involved in a dangerous situation. I believe that Michele Drier has a sequel planned for Amy which has an approximate due date of Spring, 2013. In the mean time, you can get to know Amy Hobbes by purchasing Edited for Death here on Audible.
