Description:

Jill Gardner—owner of Coffee, Books, and More in the tucked-away town of South Cove, California—is not particularly thrilled to be portraying a twenties flapper for the dinner theater murder mystery. Though it is for charity…
Of course everyone is expecting a “dead” body at the dress rehearsal…but this one isn’t acting! It turns out the main suspect is the late actor’s conniving girlfriend Sherry…who also happens to be the ex-wife of Jill’s main squeeze. Sherry is definitely a master manipulator…but is she a killer? Jill may discover the truth only when the curtain comes up on the final act…and by then, it may be far too late. 

My Thoughts: 

In this book everyone is getting ready for dinner theater murder mystery that is going on in South Cove when one of the participants winds up dead.  Of course the person who dies happens to be dating Sherry who is Greg the cute cop that is dating Jill's ex-wife.  Did Sherry have anything to gain by the death of her boyfriend?  Or was someone else determined to kill Kent?

Also in this book is more interaction with Jill's neighbor Esmeralda.  Jill keeps finding Esmeralda's cat on her property and it's up to Jill to return the cat and get a reading by her neighbor each time.  Which makes Jill wonder if Esmeralda is the real deal or not?

This book was full of so much action and adventure snad learning about the women in Kent's life and who had enough anger and vendetta to kill him and why.  I was totally stumped on the killer and all I can say is Ms. Cahoon you rock in the world of mystery throwing so much caution to the wind.  I thoroughly enjoyed all the antics and mystery that was going on.  Can't wait to see what is next in this fabulous series!
