No News is Bad News

I really like Bernie O’Dea. She’s owner/editor of a small town newspaper in fictional Redimere, Maine.She likes to walk at night, looking at “porch lights or lit windows blinking through the trees.” Her handwriting is a mess and she’s often thinking about too many things at once. She’s been diagnosed with adult ADD, but she isn’t wild about how the medicine makes her feel.

Yes, Bernie’s a reporter but her quest for the facts often leads her headlong into investigations. Much to [local Police Chief] Pete’s bemusement, frustration, and sometimes, annoyance.

I avoid real news about crime (which may be good for me, according to this NPR article I heard on the way home from work yesterday). So I found some of the tougher bits hard to read. But I hung in because Milliken is a good storyteller and Bernie O’Dea is a terrific character, as are the other inhabitants of Redimere.
So look for Cold Hard News and No News Is Bad News. Get to know Bernie O’Dea.
