The Daphne Decisions
The Jessica James Mysteries Book 1
By Meg O’Brien
SHE’S A TOUGH CRIME REPORTER WHO’S SEEN IT ALL. OR MOST OF IT, ANYWAY, BUT GO AHEAD—MAKE HER DAY …
Murder doesn’t set much colder than on the icy shores of Lake Ontario, where Jesse James is hot on the trail of a real estate scam that really has the feisty reporter steamed. This sleazy operation is behind a string of costly accidents—but it’s no accident when Jesse wakes up, bandaged head to toe, in a hospital where everyone insists she’s Daphne Malcross, a young socialite with more connections and cash than common sense.
Letting people think Daphne’s alive and well doesn’t seem like a bad idea: Jesse can snag her story while digging up clues on the missing woman. She can give her sagging old VW a rest while tooling around in Daphne’s gorgeous Jag. Throw in a personal bodyguard, compliments of Rochester’s biggest Mafia kingpin, and you’ve got the kind of deal that a tough-talking, hard-drinking, and quick-thinking woman like Jesse can’t pass up—until it’s too late.
