Even long memories fade, but murder never dies.
Elizabeth "E.M." Danniher has been among TV journalism's elite. But divorcing her network exec husband ends not only her marriage but her career, and she's banished to tiny KWMT-TV in Sherman, Wyoming, to finish out her contract. Now she's exploring what comes next - in her career, her life, and her relationships with family, friends, and those who'd like to be more than friends. But she's not being left in peace to wrestle with these issues because she keeps being drawn in to murder investigations.
Now Elizabeth, and handsome KWMT colleague Mike Paycik, rugged rancher Thomas Burrell, and her colorful cast of collaborators, plunge into mysteries from the past that threaten the present. To succeed, they must untangle characters and plotlines from a long-hidden Back Story.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I've read all of the Caught Dead in Wyoming books so far and have enjoyed them all. They're fun reads - mystery intertwined with humor and a dash of romance. I loved the way this latest installment mixed a 26 yr old case with a current one. The ending was surprising. Can't wait for tge next one in the series.
I have read the complete series. EM is a compelling character surrounded by normal people doing good. Like Evanovich, but better. Quirky, but not over the top. Great reads!
I enjoy the insight to the world of journalism, and hope that “real life” journalists have the same integrity as this main character. The characters are believable, the story is entertaining, and I enjoy finding out if my suspicions are correct! ?
Back Story by Patricia McLinn Caught Dead in Wyoming Series Book Six Elizabeth Margaret “E.M.” Danniher has been sent to the middle of nowhere. Sherman, Wyoming. Her ex-husband made sure she not only lost her job...but closed other doors for her. The small town and the people are growing on. Or...maybe it's all the murders she's been helping to solve over the eight or so months she's been at the small TV station. This Christmas season is no different. A new murder that has them looking back twenty-six years ago to an old murder. Plenty of suspicious characters that could be guilty of new crimes. And in the midst of this suspense story...there's humor. These books are told from Elizabeth's point of view.
