Why you'll love my book

Here are some of the best things about my book that I think you'll really enjoy.

Not your average cozy

You won't find any recipes inside. Nope, Stella is a TV reporter, so you will find insider information about how local TV news stations work--its funny, and interesting.

Memorable Characters

The side characters in the Stella Reynolds Mystery Series are so great, they'll be getting their own series down the line.

Unexpected Twists

Think you've got this mystery figured out? Think again. You'll be guessing (and gasping) up to the last page.

Keeps you guessing. And laughing.

Yup, this book's aim is to make sure you're working to solve the mystery alongside Stella, but also to have you laughing out loud at some of the things that Stella gets herself into.


Kirkus Reviews calls it, "The beginning of a promising new series." With three books out now, and two more coming soon (February and June 2017), you'll jump at the chance to get lost in Stella's world.

Award Winning

The Big Lead won the bronze star in the Readers Favorite Annual Contest. As you get into the series, The Big Overnight was a semi-finalist in Publisher Weekly's BookLife Prize in Fiction. It's a great series. Get to it!

Libby Kirsch is an Emmy award winning journalist, with over ten years experience working in TV newsrooms of all sizes. She draws on her rich history of making embarrassing mistakes on live TV, and is happy to finally indulge her creative writing side, instead of always having to stick to the facts.

Libby lives with her husband, children and soon (don’t tell the kids yet!) a puppy in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She doesn’t know what she was thinking.
