#BlogTour #Review ~ The Deadline by Jackie Kabler #Giveaway


Cora Baxter is back – and this time, she’s facing the most important deadline of her career…

When TV reporter Cora Baxter attends the scene of a murder in a London park, she’s horrified to discover the victim is someone she knows – and devastated when one of her best friends is charged with the crime. Suddenly the fun-filled life of Cora and her eccentric camera crew takes a darker turn. Cora is convinced that her friend is innocent, but with seemingly solid evidence, the police investigation team – reluctantly led by Cora’s boyfriend DCI Adam Bradberry – believe the case is closed. With a trail of clues that leads all the way to New York, can Cora find out the truth before the trial begins – or is it already too late?

The Deadline is the second in the hugely popular Cora Baxter Mysteries series by acclaimed broadcaster Jackie Kabler.

My Review

I had the pleasure of reading the first in this series last year The Dead Dog Day so I was thrilled to find there is another book about Cora and her escapades. The Deadline really does what it says on the tin .. Cora the morning TV presenter has to beat the deadline of her life in this one. Her best friend and colleague is accused of murdering her boyfriend. Cora is adamant that she is not capable of such a crime and sets out to prove her not guilty. But all the evidence definitely seems to point towards her.

To make life somewhat harder Cora’s boyfriend is the investigative officer on the case! As each lead is followed, Cora and her group of friends use all their connections to try to trace the news story that might bring them the lead they so desperately want.

Cora will stop at nothing and goes on a convoluted chase to protect her friend’s innocence. The resulting story is filled with mystery, intrigue and a large dollop of humour perfectly scattered into the mix.

Cora tends to blunder her way through life, how she ever succeeds in a live TV environment amazes me .. the sticky incident with her handbag and the mortifying email creased me up. And I will never go to a coffee shop again (and I love my coffee!!) without waiting for the next ‘twataccino’ to make themselves evident!!

A marvellous mix of murder in the park, lots of clues but also some blind alley’s this will keep you guessing until the end.

It may be a second book but can easily be read as a standalone .. thanks so much to Jackie and Jenny from Neverland Blog Tours for the entertainment. stars-5-0._V192197110_
