Stalking Susan by Julie Kramer

This is adebut mystery and I was quite pleased with it. However, my one complaint is aat times (and especially in the beginning) the narrator talked down to the reader. At times the narrator over explained things a mystery buff (or even a regular watcher of CSI) would know and this slowed down the narrative pacing). On the author hand, the author is a freelance television producer and certainly knows her subject and I was impressed with the details and things I learned about a news station.

Riley Spartz is an investigative television journalist returning to work after a personal tragedy. A cold case file lands in her lap, about two Susans who died a year apart on the same day. Since the anniversary conveniently falls during sweeps month Riley begins investigating and finds a link between the two cases, and things heat up when someone starts leaving dead flowers on her porch.

Overall a promising debut. and I wonder if Riley is going to become a series character. I certainly would like to read about another adventure of hers.
