HEADLNE Sometimes wolves pray in sheep's clothing The perfect hair product is out there for girls with uncontrollably frizzy curls. So is the perfect piece of chocolate. So is the perfect man. And so is a good, warm, fuzzy, inspirational lead story. Jonna Lightfoot MacLaughlin, religion reporter for the Denver Dispatch knows, in her heart, all this to be true. She just can't find proof. For any of it. Then one day, a series of mysterious messages appear on her voicemail and she is thrown headlong into a story that may drastically affect her career, and, if she's not careful, her life. Clues from untraceable sources collide with duplicitous ministers, ambiguous monks, and one exceptionally good-looking community center director. With the help of her supportive editor, her savvy, fellow chocoholic colleague and the protection of her big brother, she might break the biggest story of the year and find some of that inspiration after all.
