Publisher's Summary

When Myrtle Clover and her friend Miles attend a play in their small town, there's a full house on opening night. It's clear to Myrtle that one of the actresses is a stage hog who loves stealing the spotlight. Nandina Marshall certainly does upstage everyone - when her murder forces an unexpected intermission. Can Myrtle and Miles discover who was behind her final curtain call before murder makes an encore?


What the Critics Say

"Narrator Judy Blue so aptly portrays each character in this Myrtle Clover mystery that it's difficult to select a favorite…Clover's marvelous wit will sweep listeners along as she questions witnesses at the theater, funerals, and anywhere else she can corral them. Blue expertly presents both text and dialogue, outdoing herself with the actors' outsized egos and inability to stop acting, no matter what." (AudioFile, Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award)

I just couldn't.....

Any additional comments?

I tried three times to finish this book and I just couldn't do it. The characters far exceed my threshold for cutesy overload. I really wanted to like it as I love to find mysteries that feature older people but the story meanders over meaningless detail (the assembly of a squash casserole take up over 10 minutes of listening....seriously) so much that I lost patience again and again.

The narration is equally untolerable to my ear, sounding more like the narration of a book aimed at toddlers.

In fairness, there are people who like their mysteries as light and fluffy as cotton candy and more power to them. If that is what you are looking for, you may enjoy this book.
