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.

Good premise but disappointing execution in both writing and performance. The writing is mediocre and could use the efforts of a good editor. Any one who spent even a little time in the U.K. will see the ending coming a mile away.

The narration is also disappointing. The narrator makes the 40ish main character sound like she's about 90.
