"There's a body in my bed. A dead body."
The call from a friend staying at Sherman's newest -- okay, only -- B&B starts Elizabeth Margaret "E.M." Danniher on a twisting, turning journey where appearances not only deceive, they turn deadly. When her TV reporter friend Wardell Yardley comes to visit, they take a weekend trip to Yellowstone Park and encounter a surprising set of people. Including a team-building group from social media mega-force VisageTome, a mysterious older couple, and someone from Elizabeth's childhood.
Elizabeth senses undercurrents in this strange assortment that just about pull her and her friends underwater for good when everyone shows up in her tiny Sherman, Wyoming, town. Not only is there a murder to solve -- and fast -- there's also a new sheriff in town, whose No. 1 rule might be No Sleuthing By Journalists.
"Look live" is a TV news term. A reporter appears to be live at a scene, but in fact the entire report is taped. A misleading perception, carefully set up. Ah, the dangers of deceiving appearances ... Elizabeth, her KWMT colleague Mike Paycik, rancher Tom Burrell, and their supporting staff of idiosyncratic sleuths untangle what happens when it's not enough to merely ... LOOK LIVE.
"Colorful characters, intriguing, intelligent mystery, plus the state of Wyoming leaping off every page." -- Emilie Richards, USA Today bestselling author
