Libby Kirsch, author

Novice TV reporter Stella Reynolds signs with a new station, excited to head to a bigger city for a better job. But when she arrives in Bristol, Virginia, she finds a sexist, mean boss, unfriendly coworkers, and a town in love with a sport she’s never even watched—NASCAR!

Before she can unpack her bags, Stella is drawn into an investigation when a driver is killed in a fiery wreck on the track.

Experts call his death a tragedy, but Stella has insider information that the accident is anything but. A slippery ex-fiancée, an angry father, and a nosy neighbor will have you laughing on one page and gasping on the next. If all goes according to Stella's plan, the facts will be revealed during an epic live Big Interview. But when does anything ever go according to plan?
