We are still unpacking from our move so there is no special guest today. Sorry. But I do want to tell you about the next Glee Club Mystery by Joelle Charbonneau. I will be giving my review copy away in an upcoming giveaway because right now I can’t put my hands on it and I want to make sure it is still in giveaway condition 🙂

High School Show Choir Coach Paige Marshall has her hands full. She has just learned that two other high schools are performing the same number as her choir in the upcoming competition season. She needs to quickly replace that song, complete with choreography, with another before they debut at the holiday concert in just a few days.
Paige has also been selected as one of the soloists in a production of the Messiah and is rehearsing daily to prepare. She is so excited, but the man singing the tenor part is world-renowned tenor David Richard and his overblown ego is hitting all the wrong notes. When the tempestuous tenor drops dead during rehearsal Paige finds herself investigating another murder and finds out the tenor was certainly no choirboy.
What a wonderful encore to Murder for Choir. Charbonneau hits all the right notes!
The author combines mystery with a romantic triangle that reads like a marvelous melody. Should Paige be with Devlyn or Mike? The hunky detective or the talented teacher? Paige is extraordinary as she deals with keeping her current job while trying to further her singing career plus she is dealing with her love life, her students, and her boss Larry, and trying to catch a killer.
The story has layers and is full of humor. The characters just draw you right into their lives. It is easy to see the author is a performer but she is also a terrific storyteller. Her insight into the musical arena shines through this entire literary score.
As I said in my review of Murder for Choir…
Like Glee, you will love this book!
Like cozy mysteries, you won’t be able to put this one down!
I can’t wait for the next performance. It must almost be time for the Show Choir Competitions to begin.
