Here's a blurb from Dead on Deadline to pique your interest:
"Just as her journalism career in the city is taking off, Piper Greene returns to her tiny New England hometown to care for her beloved aunt, Gladys. She takes a job at the Exeter Independent, where her days are filled with stories of church bazaars, runaway turkeys, and news from the garden club. Piper assumes her assignment to cover the American Independence Festival, honoring her town’s role in the Revolutionary War, is just another mundane event. But when a body dressed in a Red Coat soldier jacket is found hanged from the top of the historic Town Hall, Piper finds herself in the middle of a murder. The victim is her news editor, Charlotte Campbell, and there is no shortage of people who would be glad to see her dead."
Since 2014, Lara has been one of four crime writers for the hit podcast "Crime Writers On!" She is the host of the Patreon-exclusive podcast "Leave It to Bricker," where she investigates mysteries in her town of Exeter NH. As a news reporter, Lara received numerous awards from both the New England Newspaper & Press Association and the NH Press Association for her crime & investigative reporting. Also, for 7 years, Lara worked for the NH Public Defender system as a defense investigator. Needless to say, Lara's background has helped her develop the character Piper Greene and create this fun new mystery series!
