Sacred Cows by Karen E. Olson
Police reporter Annie Seymour's life is in flux. She's nearly forty and being single doesn't bother her, but the quality of the journalists at her paper make her wonder why she's stayed in the job nearly 15 years. She's tired of being rousted in the middle of the night to cover a murder--but then being sent on a story about fiberglass cows dotting the landscape of New Haven, CT. Her cop boyfriend is stonewalling her about the murder and she's being shadowed by an overeager cub reporter. No wonder she's feeling jaded, right? As Annie follows the leads from these seemingly unrelated cases, she uncovers more than she bargained for. And like all good mysteries, Sacred Cows delivers the goods: great entertainment, likeable characters, and a jolly good resolution!
