Cadet journalist Stacey McCallaghan is struggling to find anything newsworthy to report on in the small country town of Toomey. Front-page stories consist of the price of cattle and lawn bowls results, and Stacey spends more time laying out the crossword than covering actual news.

Until the first dead body turns up.

While the local police fumble the investigation, ambitious Stacey is just pleased to have something other than cattle sales to write about. Plus, she now has an excuse to spend more time with the arrogantly attractive Detective Scott Fitzgerald. But when Stacey shows up at one crime scene too many, she moves to the top of the most wanted list. Stacey must uncover the truth before anyone else gets hurt – or the police put her behind bars.

Light-hearted and laugh-out-loud funny, this charming novel will have readers falling in love with the surprisingly deadly town of Toomey.

About the Author

Katie Rowney’s debut novel Front Page News will be published by Penguin Random House in May 2016. She is a recovering journalist, current communications wizard and owner of far too much china. She grew up on Tamborine Mountain, Queensland, and only made it as far as the big smoke of Brisbane city before settling down with her husband Magnus, two dogs and two cats. She reads a minimum of three books a week, has an unhealthy obsession with David Bowie and tries to live her life as Indiana Jones would.


Everyone needs on of these on their bookshelf


As a debut novel I was so impressed and can't wait to read more from Katie Rowney. I was delighted with the character of Stacey - I felt like she could be a good friend of mine, or even me! All of the characters were well developed and endearing (unless they're not supposed to be) and I love the Australian tropes that made their way in all through the story. A great read.



Enjoyed the plot


Very interesting. Just what I like.
