It's been too long since I've had time to spend an afternoon on the couch with a good book. Now that the Christmas rush is over, I decided to spend a few hours with The Newsmakers by Lis Wiehl and I'm so glad I did. A book was provided for review, but the story is my own.

The Newsmakers by Lis Wiehl
TV reporter Erica Sparks has become a superstar overnight. But is it due to her hard work and talent? Or is she at the center of a spiraling conspiracy?
Erica Sparks is a beautiful and ambitious reporter who has just landed her dream job at Global News Network in New York. And while it was hard to leave Jenny, her cherished eight-year-old daughter, in the custody of her ex-husband, Erica is determined to succeed in the cutthroat world of big-time broadcasting. She can only hope her troubled past won't come back to sabotage her dreams.
Although the wounds from her divorce are still fresh, Erica can't deny the chemistry between her and her new producer, the handsome and empathic Greg Underwood. But a relationship is the last thing she wants right now. On her very first assignment, Erica inadvertently witnesses -- and films -- a horrific tragedy, scooping all the other networks. Mere weeks later, another tragedy strikes -- again, right in front of Erica and her cameras.
Her career skyrockets overnight, but Erica is troubled. Deeply. This can't just be a coincidence. But what is it? Erica will stop at nothing to uncover the truth. But she has to make sure disaster -- and her troubled past -- don't catch up with her first.
Erica is working at a job in a small town when she gets the chance she's been waiting for to work at a huge network in New York City. She's recovering from a divorce and a problem with alcohol that almost resulted in losing her daughter. She takes this new job as a way to get a fresh start.
The new job is a lot different than what she's used to, but she decides it's because it's a more cutthroat environment. She thinks the owner of GNN is a bit weird and she's warned by several people to be careful there. Erica starts noticing things that disturb her about GNN and the people that work there and she decides to start doing some investigating of her own. Then, things start getting dangerous and people start getting hurt. Erica needs to figure out what's behind all of this before it's too late.
The Newsmakers was literally one of those books I couldn't put down. I spent a wonderful afternoon engrossed in the story, flipping pages to find out what happened at the end. Highly recommend!
