Description

Divorce a husband, lose a career …grapple with a murder.

TV journalist Elizabeth “E.M.” Danniher will tell you she committed two sins — she didn’t stay young, and she made an enemy of a powerful news executive — her ex. She used to break national news. Now her top story as the “Helping Out!” reporter at dinky KWMT-TV in Sherman, Wyoming is getting a defective toaster repaired. 

Tough, funny and determined, Elizabeth wrestles with isolation, keeping a professional edge, and an evolving self-image. Is Wyoming — the land of cattle, cowboys, tumbleweeds, and fewer than six people per square mile — her new home or a road to permanent obscurity?

Soon she’s in a battle of wills with ex-football player turned journalist Mike Paycik, who sees her as a handy rung on his career ladder. And there’s the matter of a deputy sheriff—missing or murdered? Elizabeth finds herself investigating at the insistence of a girl who’s set on proving her father’s innocence. Not that enigmatic rancher Thomas Burrell makes investigating easy.

But Elizabeth won’t fade to black without a fight, no matter how final some might want to make her Sign Off. 

Don’t miss any of Elizabeth’s other Caught Dead in Wyoming adventures in: 
Left Hanging (Book 2) 
Shoot First (Book 3)
Last Ditch (Book 4)
Look Live (Book 5)
Back Story (Book 6), coming in 2017

What people are saying about SIGN OFF

“This is one of those books that you want to stop everything to read while hoping it never ends.
“Sign Off is a brisk, enthralling page-turner” – P.B. Ryan, bestselling author
“Colorful characters, intriguing, intelligent mystery, plus the state of Wyoming leaping off every page.” – Emilie Richards, USA Today Bestselling Author
That was fun.”
“Be prepared for lots of twist and turns.”

I read it in one sitting. I hadn't planned it that way, but just couldn't stop.”

“The characters were a mix of funny, sad, and quirky and were totally believable. There was just enough humor to lighten the story, but not to disrespect the seriousness of crime.”

    On the one hand, they're free. Perfect for a lazy day. But free books usually aren't well written. I mean they're really predictable and really crummy. The reading experience becomes arduous. Happily, that's not the case with this book. I see it's first in a series, and I will have fun reading the next book. This was a light murder mystery, with a side of humor. The main character has talent, but does not take herself too seriously. How could she? She just got shipped up to the middle of Montana to do a weekly Consumer Spot that wont even be advertised on the local station. What fun! And it does turn out to be fun, and it's well written. Enjoyable book, enjoyable story. Thank you for reading my review.
  • Fantastic!

    A spellbinding who done thriller that keeps its secrets till the end. The story grabbed my attention & wouldn't let go. It was very hard to take a break from reading it as the plot just grabs the reader & drags them into small town life.
