For fans of Lisa Lutz and Janet Evanovich, the debut in a new series, A Bad Day’s Work is a fast-paced and funny mystery starring a wonderfully flawed TV camerawoman named Lilly who is caught at the right place but definitely the wrong time.
Nothing seems to be going Lilly’s way. A TV news photographer at her hometown television station, she’s one of the hardest working “shooters” there, but her pit-bull personality and a series of unlucky blunders have put her job in jeopardy.
So when an urgent story breaks in the middle of the night, Lilly is determined to turn her bad luck around and get the respect she deserves. But the pressure is on—either she delivers amazing video—or she’s fired. After busting her butt and dodging the cops, Lilly has what could be the biggest scoop of her career—exclusive video of a murder scene. Or does she have it? Lilly is stunned when the tape played in front of the entire newsroom is nothing but dead air.
Soon she’s on the run from criminals and police, both of whom claim Lilly’s video is the key to solving the murder and think she pocketed the real tape. Can she escape her pursuers long enough to catch the killer, or will she end the day as the next victim?
Lilly’s bad day just keeps getting worse, but the one thing she knows for sure is that she’d like to live to see more of them . . .
