Praise for Live, Local, and Dead:
“A nifty series kickoff.”

“Memorable characters, original storyline, unexpected plot twists . . . [it] has it all.”
Midwest Book Review

“Cozy with an edge.”
Dru’s Book Musings

“A highly entertaining cozy that strikes out on its own with originality, social issues, and spunk.”
San Francisco Book Review

“Sharp, witty, and wry, with characters that will dance in your head, Live, Local and Dead is a refreshing take on cozy mystery romance. Not to be missed!”
—J.C. Eaton, author of The Sophie Kimball Mysteries

“‘I shot the snowman. But I did not kill the guy inside.’ From this first line, I was hooked, and I didn’t wriggle off until the end. I enjoyed the story so much that I slowed down my reading speed to delay finishing the book. I loved the characters, the plot (even if I had a good idea of whodunit – or who I hoped had done it), the writing. Nikki Knight achieved the right balance of quirkiness with believability – character development, no one too stupid to live, logic and coincidence, precocious kids who save the day but aren’t annoyingly adult, a love interest that makes sense and isn’t smarmy or cringe-inducing, a farting moose. I am looking forward to the continuation of the series.”
—Rabbi Ilene Schneider, award-winning author of the Rabbi Aviva Cohen Mysteries

“Hoping for a peaceful life with her daughter in rural Vermont, Jaye Jordan gave up her life as a DJ in the Big Apple. Running WSV, a small local radio station, seemed a perfect choice. She never expected murder, bombs, or political death plots. But finding love and romance with someone from the past who sweeps her off her feet more than makes up for the danger. Live, Local and Dead is a heartwarming story, packed with thrills and romance.
—Connie Archer, author of the Soup Lovers’ mysteries

“Razor-sharp prose, a spunky and savvy protagonist, and a cast of captivating characters make this lively entry into the world of mysteries a sure-fire success!”
—Linda Reilly, author of the Deep Fried mysteries, the Cat Lady mysteries, and the Grilled Cheese mysteries

Live, Local, and Dead starts with a bang and never lets up! With a feisty heroine and a diverse cast, this first-in-series provides a well-crafted mystery, a budding romance—and laughs along the way.”
—Vickie Fee, author of Liv & Di in Dixie mysteries

“If you like your cozies more salty than sweet, then Nikki Knight’s new book absolutely needs to be your next read. With an original cast of Gen X-inspired characters, with a wit sharper than an infomercial knife set, Knight just may be my new favorite cozy mystery author. True story.”
—Harper Kincaid, author of To Kill A Mocking Girl
