Book ~ "Headline Murder" (2008) April Lindgren

From Chapters.Indigo.ca ~ How far will a reporter go to get her story? And will she be putting her life at risk or just her heart? For years, Pia Keyne was the senior political columnist at a daily newspaper until her sideline as a mystery writer took over her life. But now, with the murder of a high-profile cabinet minister right in the heart of the legislature buildings, she can't help but be drawn back into political intrigue. What starts out as a simple headline story - and possible idea for her next book - quickly turns into something more dangerous as the killings continue and Pia's investigative skills lead her into the world of Nazi art theft, forgery, drugs and homicide. Having spent years trying to overcome the painful secrets of her own past, Pia Keyne must now choose who to trust, who to love and who to track down as a possible source - for her story and for murder.

This book is set in Toronto, which drew my interest. And is a mystery, which I enjoy.

The writing style was okay, though the author is very descriptive ... she tries too hard at times.

Pia jumped to a conclusion very quickly about who the murderer is and I'm not sure what substantiated this.

Would I recommend this book? It wasn't a bad story, but it wasn't a great one either.
