Emmy winning journalist Charlie McNally is finally feeling comfortable in her new relationship with Professor Josh Gelston and his young daughter Penny. In fact, since Josh popped the question, Charlie's on cloud nine. That Penny is finally warming up to the prospect of Charlie as her stepmother is simply icing on the cake. But somehow, Charlie's professional life always manages to throw an unexpected loop into her personal life.

This time she's not only hot on the trail of a questionable car-cloning operation, she also takes it upon herself to snoop out strange goings-on at Bexter Academy, the exclusive private school where Josh teaches. Someone is making threats against the academy's students, one of whom happens to be Penny. The fact that Josh has access to privileged information which might shed light on the situation has Charlie walking a fine line that might once again jeopardise their relationship. But she's not about to leave any stone unturned if it means protecting the two people she loves.

Drive Time is the fourth instalment of Ryan's enjoyable Charlotte McNally series that features a feisty reporter whose nose for Emmy winning news stories always seems to land her (and producer side kick Franklin) in hot water - or worse - in a killer's crosshairs. This story is no exception - in fact, Ryan revs up the action as Charlie snoops out not one, but two mysteries. The fact that the author is herself an award-winning journalist adds realism and excitement to the proceedings. If you enjoy involving, character-rich mysteries with nice touches of humour and romance, then check out the entire Charlotte McNally series.
