"It's News to Me" (Paperback)
Out of Stock; Usually Arrives in 2-5 Days
Marissa Cavelo awakens under an alcohol-induced fog and has just minutes to get to a meeting at the television station where she works. She's sure her career is doomed. Three days earlier, her chaotic adventure begins as a reporter and anchor at KATX-TV in Austin, Texas. While trying to prove to her station manager and back-stabbing co-workers that she is more than a pretty Latina who's only good for fluff pieces, Marissa stumbles upon a huge exclusive, and suddenly finds herself up against ruthless criminals who'll do anything-including taking down a news crew if necessary-to keep illegal activities from being uncovered. Besides professional obstacles, she also faces a widening disconnect from her identical twin sister, Carissa. CC as she's called, resents her sister's growing popularity as a celebrity and is desperate to get out from behind Marissa's shadow, but what CC is willing to do to forge her own identity is unthinkable. Through all this, Marissa finds herself sexually drawn to her handsome photographer, Ken. Armed with a bottle of tequila, they come up with a kick-ass expos in hopes of uncovering Austin's scandal of the decade.
