Publisher's Summary

In this fourth title in the Ellie Foreman mystery series, the Chicago documentary filmmaker finds herself in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Returning from a video shoot at the Lodge, a newly renovated, upscale resort, Ellie befriends a woman who claims her ride abandoned her at a highway rest stop. But Ellie's kindness is brutally cut short when a pickup truck pulls up, the rear window opens, and the woman is shot dead.
Even with her history of sleuthing, Ellie is not eager to get involved. Then the victims' family arrives and begs for information. When the second shooting occurs, Ellie decides to poke around on her own. She is soon drawn into the history of a wealthy and prominent family, deeply rooted in a magnificent mansion on the shores of the lake, and surrounded by an elaborate web of lies, murder, and family secrets that have plagued both them and the town for years - secrets that now place Ellie in the crosshairs of a killer.

New crimes and old ones

Would you consider the audio edition of A Shot to Die For to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version. I would enjoy it also.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jimmy, the Chief of Police, because he seemed to care about the various individuals.

What about Mary Conway’s performance did you like?

Mary Conway seemed sincere. She was easy to listen to and easily understood.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did end up sitting longer than planned when it neared the end. I had to keep listening. Every time I had to stop, I wished I could listen to more.

Just Love Ellie

Really enjoyed this story. Murder, wealth, and a love story-- my three favorite components! Ellie is a great character, as is Luke. Just downloaded "DOUBLEBACK"!
