Publisher's Summary

This witty and wise work is the first in Elizabeth J. Duncan's charming new mystery series.
A Catskills resort's production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet takes a wickedly ironic turn when the leading lady, Lauren Richmond, is first poisoned and then stabbed. Who would extinguish the life of such a beautiful young thespian? It seems like just about everyone had a motive to pull the ropes on her final curtain call.
At the center of this Shakespearean tragedy is Charlotte Fairfax, formerly the costume mistress of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Upstate New York is a long way from the royal stage, but Charlotte is always the queen of her domain. As this small production's costume designer, she has stitched her way into everyone's lives, learning more than anyone could possibly imagine about the rise and fall of Lauren Richmond.

A Bit Flat

I forced myself to finish this book. The characters were flat and uninteresting and the mystery was average. It provided good background noise while I cleaned my house. I might get the next book to see if there is improvement. If there is nothing else available.

Damned by faint praise

The writing was okay. There was no gratuitous sex or swearing but the motive for the murder was unconvincing. NOT another Agatha Christie by any stretch of the imagination.
