Lights, Camera, Murder: Reality TV Cozy Mysteries 1 by Nikki Haverstock

Melissa McBallister is young, rich, and beautiful but frustrated. She wants nothing more than to be a famous author like her mother. When the opportunity to be on a new reality TV show comes her way, she grabs the chance, hoping to find some inspiration. When a castmate is murdered during a live broadcast and her blood is literally on Melissa’s hands, the young writer gets more than she bargained for—reality TV is much stranger than fiction. Can Melissa and her rescue dog Bubbles prove that she’s innocent?

Ryan Sethi prefers to produce TV commercials. They’re boring and safe. But he can’t pass up the opportunity to produce a show about socialites in Fishcreek Falls, an exclusive ski town high in the Rocky Mountains. But can he keep the show, cast, crew, and especially Melissa safe while a killer is on the loose? Or will a reality TV show gone bad ruin both of their lives?


⭐⭐⭐⭐ from Melissa Storm

This was a really fun, lighthearted read and kind of exactly what I needed this past week. I’m proud to share a name and a profession with author/ reality TV star Melissa, our heroine–not a reality star myself obviously, but one can dream! I am a total reality TV junkie and enjoyed the behind-the-scenes look. I think I would have liked the book even more if it were only from Melissa’s POV and not also Ryan’s, but that could also be a personal preference issue. I do believe fans of light, humorous reads and/or reality TV will really enjoy this book. Nikki Haverstock has a new fan right here!
