by Rene Gutteridge

The first in Gutteridge’s new “Occupational Hazards” series, Scoop brings together two unlikely partners: laughter and the news. The humorous tale includes an overmedicated producer, a news anchor who can’t frown, and a Christian intern who has her own ideas about “good news.” And while each of these characters offer plenty of entertainment value in their own right, the funniest character of all is the news program itself: Let’s just say that Channel 7 News has enough quirks to make even the stiffest funny bone tingle.

If the humor doesn’t interest you, don’t worry: Gutteridge throws in a little mystery and romance too. Add to that an eye-opening glimpse into the world of local news and, in my opinion, you have a fun, lighthearted read. I’m already looking forward to the next book in this series! Keep ’em coming, Rene!
