The Big Interview
By author – Libby Kirsch


Stella’s Saga Continues!
The perfect book for fans of the laugh-out-loud lines in Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series combined with the who-done-it page turning style of a Sue Grafton mystery.

TV reporter Stella Reynolds signs with a new station, excited to move to a bigger city for a better job. When she arrives in Bristol, Virginia, though, she finds a sexist, mean boss, unfriendly coworkers, and a town in love with a sport she’s never even watched—NASCAR! Before she can unpack her bags, Stella is drawn into an investigation when a driver is killed in a fiery wreck on the track. Experts call his death a tragedy, but Stella has insider information that the accident is anything but.

With a slippery ex-fiancee, an angry father, and a nosy neighbor, you’ll be laughing on one page and gasping on the next. If all goes according to plan, the facts will be revealed during an epic live Big Interview. But when does anything ever go according to plan?

The Big Interview is a standalone book in the Stella Reynolds Mystery Series. If you like a great mystery peppered with laugh out loud moments and cringe-worthy catastrophes, Libby Kirsch’s The Big Interview is for you. Buy Libby Kirsch’s book today, and see how the final big interview goes down when the cameras go live.


If you’re looking for your next cosy mystery to read, you don’t have to look any further and you seriously might want to give this one a go. I don’t have much experience in this genre but I quite enjoyed this light read. This novel made a nice mixture of whodunit with a touch of romance.

In The Big Interview Stella signed a new contract as a reporter for NBC2 in Bristol, taking her a long distance away from her old life and boyfriend John, in Montana. On her first day on the job she is shown around the Speedway – not a gas station or shopping mall as she first assumes – but a NASCAR track where she meets Lucky Haskins, NASCAR’s number one driver for three years running.

What is looking to be the first sparks of a new (swoonworthy) romance is over before it truly began however. Devastating news arrives that Lucky was involved in a car crash in the race in Talladega and Stella is even instructed to report about the crash. Everybody seems unanimous that it was uncharacteristic for him to take such risks and Stella becomes convinced it was a matter of foul play. She is determined to expose the murderer live on tv but first she has to uncover who it is while the minutes are ticking away until the Live Interview.

The story flowed really well and it was built up to a surprising conclusion. It’s absolutely not obvious who the killer is, or his motive to want to kill Lucky. At first it seems everybody liked him and it’s only gradually that people’s grievances start to surface and other things come into play. I really wanted to know who was after Lucky and the author did a marvelous job at keeping it a mystery for so long. I had to wait for the Big Interview too to get the full picture of the situation.

  1. I am a huge Stephanie Plum fan, so when I read the blurb I got all excited! This book sounds just like what I love. I found those books to be perfect when I need a light and entertaining read. They also make great comfort reads when I’m sick. Thank you for bringing it to my attention, great review 🙂
