Publisher's Summary

Is art imitating life in 1982?
Jana Lane, ex-child star, is doing a comeback film about murder. When a crew member is killed on the set, it looks like Jana could be next. Thickening the plot is Jana's breathtakingly handsome and muscular leading man, Jason Apollo, whose boyish, southern charms have aroused Jana's interest on screen and off.
Will Jana and Jason stop the murderer before the final reel, or end up on the cutting room floor in this fast-paced whodunit with a shocking ending?

Fun Cozy Murder Mystery

Any additional comments?

This book is a cozy mystery. Many of the characters are gay and there are no sex scenes or graphic violence. It takes place in the 80s at the beginning of the AIDS crisis during the panic, misconceptions, prejudice, and unfortunately poor prognosis for the victims.

A childhood star is filming a come-back movie in the Hudson Valley in New York and big name Hollywood stars are in it. There is a murder, many twists and turns, and a surprise ending.

I enjoyed this book very much and was gathering clues and suspects along with the main character. It had all the fun elements of a cozy mystery. I would be interested in listening to the other books in the series as it was very well written.

Unfortunately, I agree with the other reviews abut the narrator. He did some excellent character vocalization but the narrative parts left something to be desired.

A good, clean Cozy with plenty twists

I enjoyed this book when I read it so I thought I would give it a listen as well. Either way, you choose will work since the book is intriguing. I love these mysteries, finding them fun, lighthearted with a touch of suspense. The ending is a big surprise and there are lots of twists to keep you on your toes. I like the humor and Joe's style where it sounds like a screenplay. It is fresh and fun, a great escape from the humdrum of life. I found listening to it doing cores made things go faster.

I will say the narration was just Okay. I did like Derick Snow's voices for the characters and the dialogue but the regular reading seemed a bit choppy. I will continue listening to this series.
If you like lighthearted suspense, cozy mysteries, child stars grown up, actors, quirky caracters, and a good clean story you will enjoy this.
