The News in Small Towns

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
Sue-Ann McKeown returns to her home town after a crushing six months of war reporting in Iraq. She has given up her high-profile job in Virginia and broken up with her boyfriend. Even her new job with a small-town newspaper seems almost too much to handle, especially since her old high school rival works there, too.

About Iza Moreau

Iza Moreau is a Golden Crown Finalist and a 3-time Next Generation Indie Award finalist for her Small Town series of mysteries. She lives in the southern United States, where she rides dressage at the fourth level and shoots target archery using both recurves and horsebows. She counts Sarah Waters, Maggie Estep, and the Bronte sisters--Acton, Currer, and Ellis--among her literary influences.

THE NEWS IN SMALL TOWNS, the first novel in the Small Town series, was a Next Generation India Award finalist in both Mystery and Regional Fiction. The second, MADNESS IN SMALL TOWNS, was also an Indie finalist in Mystery. SECRETS IN SMALL TOWNS was a Goldie finalist in Lesbian Mystery as well as a Next Generation Indie finalist in the LGBT category. These, and the short story collection, MYSTERIES IN SMALL TOWNS, are available in both e-book and paperback formats.

Moreau is also the author of THE XYZ MYSTERIES--a series of novellas and short stories set in Miami in 1974. They feature the sister detectives Xande, Yolande, and Zoe Calhoun. Some of these stories can be found on this site.

If you like the books, please give them a rating, both on Smashwords, Goodreads, and any other of the major book retailers you do business with. That kilnd of word of mouth is really the only way that an indie author can succeed. You can reach Iza at

Review by: Gary Simmons on June 29, 2013 :
Once you start this book, you will not put it down. It moves quick and true like an arrow from Sue Ann's bow and strikes dead center. A good read indeed.

Review by: Pygmy Coho on April 21, 2013 :
I was looking for a love story when I came across this book. What I got was so much more. An engaging plot, rich details, some nice twists and quirky characters--an altogether fun read make this highly recommended.

There are more titles, both short stories and novels, concentrating on this cast of characters in a small Florida town. What are you waiting for? Enjoy.
