Praise for LynDee’s novels:

“Walker’s years in a newsroom obviously have paid off: Her pacing is expert, her knowledge of police and court procedure evident, and her dialogue natural…Tight, fast-paced and funny, Front Page Fatality immediately draws the reader in, provides plenty of twists, and keeps its audience guessing up to the end.” – Style Weekly 

“A new book by LynDee Walker is always a treat for a mystery reader.” — Suspense Magazine

“Fast, funny, [and] action-packed.” — The Virginian-Pilot

Front Page Fatality is delightful, with engaging characters, a crackling good mystery, and of course, high, high heels. LynDee Walker writes with wit and intelligence and the confidence of a newsroom insider. What fun!” – Harley Jane Kozak, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity-Award winning author of Dating Dead Men and Keeper of the Moon

The humor in this book starts at the very beginning and moves right along through to the end. You might think that a series about high heels would be fluffy, but you’d be wrong. This book has a great mystery, a ton of humor (I know I’ve already said that, but it was worth repeating) and really wonderful characters. Nichelle might like her shoes, but she’s a smart career girl who works hard and tries to do the right thing by writing stories that matter.”—CriminalElement.com

It’s Walker’s real life experience as a working journalist that makes this enjoyable mystery stand out. The details of newsroom machinations are every bit as complicated as the tangled puzzle that her sleuth must solve.” — New York Times Bestselling Author Lisa Brackmann

This is what a cozy mystery should be. It’s fun but not fluffy. Entertaining but not shallow. Touching but not melodramatic…This series is rapidly becoming a top 10 favorite.” —Murder By Death Reviews

Small Town Spin has at its core a solidly-crafted murder investigation…This is a very good entry in this series, one that will please existing fans and will no doubt have new readers seeking out the earlier books.” —Mysterious Reviews

Holy Manolos! I loved Devil in the Deadline. LynDee Walker’s journalistic background fuels her snappy dialogue, thrill-of-the-chase plotting, and A-List fashion sense. Headlines in High Heels is a top-notch cozy mystery series readers will enjoy slipping into.”—Julia Spencer-Fleming, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of Through the Evil Days

Nichelle proves herself to be a standout. She has the cynicism of jaded police officers but also the hope of a champion and advocate for justice. Of course, a healthy sense of humor always helps. Readers who enjoy the outstanding novels of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Edna Buchanan will find themselves similarly entertained by this stellar series by another award-winning journalist.”—King’s River Life Magazine
