I found Show Time a fast read – and one I didn’t want to put down. I am sure you will love this book as much as I did!

This was a fun cozy with a restaurant/theater theme.
This one kept me guessing and there were many twists and turns. This was a great first in a series and I look forward to more.

The first book in what promises to be an entertaining cozy series…
SHOW TIME was a wonderful story I didn’t want to put it down. A fun escape from the real world, one and I have every plan of visiting again in future installments.

A small town setting, colorful characters and a solid mystery, make this a strong start for a new series.

Show Time (A Dodie O’Dell Mystery)
Lyrical Underground (July 19, 2016)
Paperback: 228 pages
E-Book ASIN: B0174PKHFG
The tide has turned for Dodie O’Dell since a hurricane upended her life on the Jersey Shore. Now she’s further up the coast in sleepy Etonville, managing a restaurant that dishes dinners themed around the community theater’s latest productions. But Dodie just never imagined she’d land the starring role in a case of bloody homicide . . .
Intrigued by rumors of vanishing box office money, Dodie has agreed to help oversee the casting of Romeo and Juliet at the modest Etonville Little Theater. If nothing else, it’s a welcome escape from the thirty-something’s usual going-to-bed-with-a-mystery-novel routine. But when Jerome Angleton, a well-respected member of the theater company, is inexplicably found murdered on the loading dock, deadly drama transcends the stage—and the page. As a crime wave crashes over the small town, the spotlight is on Dodie to orchestrate her own investigation behind the scenes . . . before someone has a chance at a killer encore.
