Newspaper reporter America Miles knows that picturesque Hyacinth, Missouri, is a place to raise a family, not a fuss. She's used to the slow pace of small-town life. And she realizes that the way her love life is going, her cat is likely getting more action than she is.
But all that changes suddenly when Harrison Fielding, her mean-as-a-snake editor, keels over clutching a brownie baked by Sandy Betts, America's best friend and the food editor at the paper. With Sandy suddenly under suspicion for the death, America finds herself drawn into the investigation. She soon sees herself looking at her co-workers in a new light.
There's just one problem. Everybody hated Harrison Fielding.
There's a tough-talking photographer with a chip on his shoulder, and a cops reporter with a decidely murky history. The superstar reporter barely seems to notice the editor's been killed, and the sports editor seems more interested in getting home in time for wrestling than discussing any crimes.
Only one local detective can help America view things objectively, and she's not sure she can stand that much arrogance in one room, thank you very much.
But when the body count starts to rise, America realizes she might need all the help she can get. After all, reporting can be dangerous. In fact, it seems some stories can get you killed.
