The Cover Story (A Branigan Powers Mystery) by Deb Richardson-Moore

Book Description:  A fatal crash involving two college students heading home for the holidays seems like an unfortunate accident. But when the surviving girl wakens, she tells a curious story of the vehicle that forced them off the road--an old-fashioned, 1950s-style hearse.
Reporter Branigan Powers delves into the mystery that takes her to the college campus, and leads her into dangerous fraternity and sorority pledge parties.
Reunited with the homeless Malachi Martin, who is so adept at seeing what isn't there rather than what is, Branigan must uncover what is really going on at the college before other students are put in danger.
This second installment in the author's first cozy mystery series delves into the world of newspapers and life on the streets--both of which the author knows well.

My Thoughts: Yay! Another Branigan Powers Mystery!  This is the second book in the series.  And I do love these mysteries!  These are superb cozy mysteries. 

After a fatal crash when two college girls are headed home for the holidays, the one surviving girl awakens and relates that a 1950's hearse tried to push them off the road.

When reporter Branigan Powers hears this news she is on the case.  

Branigan takes off to the college campus where she actually fits into the college scene. But things are not always as they seem.  

Branigan asks Malachi Martin, a homeless man, who sees more than most to go to the accident site and help her "see" what others are missing.  With the clock ticking towards doom, Branigan and Malachi form an awesome duo to get to the bottom of the hearse mystery.

This is an interesting story of Branigan's life in the newsroom and Malachi's life on the streets. 

This was quite a mystery.  I truly enjoyed the mystery and the author wrote a great story so I couldn't understand why this same author who says she is a pastor would write that alot of the characters drank alcohol and at the beginning of the story she described a man as having a stick in his butt.  O.My.Lanta!  Why not just write he walked ramrod straight?!?!  I simply get tired of authors/people not using good descriptive words.  We have wonderful adjectives and adverbs at our disposal there is no excuse for "ugly" talk.  *Otherwise I enjoyed the storyline*
