Publisher's Summary

It could be lights out for college theatre professor Nicky Abbondanza. With dead bodybuilders popping up on campus, Nicky, and his favorite colleague/life partner Noah Oliver, must use their drama skills to figure out who is taking down pumped up musclemen in the Physical Education building before it is curtain down for Nicky and Noah. Complicating matters is a visit from Noah's parents from Wisconsin, and Nicky's suspicion that Noah may be hiding more than a cut, smooth body.
You will be applauding and shouting "bravo" for Joe Cosentino's fast-paced, side-splittingly funny, edge-of-your-seat entertaining second novel in this delightful series. Curtain up and weights up!

Comedy, mystery, and romance all in one!

What did you love best about Drama Muscle?

I love the humor.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the mystery but I also enjoyed when Noah's parents came to visit, and Noah's mom is always sending pictures to her friend and comparing them to her friend's gay son. It's hilarious.

What about Chip Hurley’s performance did you like?

I Liked Chip's performance. I think he captured Nickey quite well though I imagined Noah and Martin more reversed in their speech.
I think Chip did a good job narrating and adding humor where it fit in.

Who was the most memorable character of Drama Muscle and why?

Nickey. I love how Nickey is always trying to snoop around and solve a mystery.

Any additional comments?

Drama Muscle is book two In the Nickey and Noah Mysteries. The stories stand alone fairly well, but I think you would enjoy it better if you read them in order to get to know more about them.
Drama Muscle is about Nickey and Noah stepping in to help stage the Muscle competition in Tree Meadow college where they work. Suddenly the students and teachers start dropping dead, and Nickey is back to trying to solve the mystery and clear his name as he is the one always finding the bodies.
If you haven't read any of this series and love a good laugh and cozy mystery you should really pick this up. The story is chock full of great characters, humor and mystery plus the romance between Nicky and Noah. I highly recommend this book and series!

Great listening fun

I read the book and loved it, so I thought it would be like having my own inside man, knowing exactly what to expect with no surprises, right? WRONG. The surprise was Chip Hurley.
He was just so phenomenally good in giving me the ultimate connection that he delivered when following Nicky and Noah in their sleuthing exploits.
So how do you explain the audio version of the marvellous Drama Muscle by Joe Cosentino??? Well. I think saying that it's a clever and very imaginative mystery frolic, with Nicky and Noah being the main "frolicers" (try saying that 3 times fast) is a very good start.
It was a laugh-a-thong from start to finish and as I have already stated, Chip Hurley deserves full credit for making it so. His narration, with the clever use of various vocal pitches was masterful and his comic timing spot-on. He went from a warm to a strident tone with such ease, I was in awe and made it a joy to listen too. You get so lost in the storyline that you forget that it's only one narrator playing all the parts.
I thoroughly enjoyed the way he portrayed Nicky and Noah but for me, his portrayal of the arrogant/vainglorious Van Granite stole the show.
Highly recommended.
