From Back Cover:
Former Broadway actress Violet La Rue is holding auditions for A Midsummer Night’s Dream—and everyone from the sour spinster librarian Ms. Cole to Lindsey’s youthful library pages are trying out for parts. Brought in to play the mischievous Puck is the flirtatious professional actor Robbie Vine, who seems to have eyes for Lindsey. Before her blush has faded, the Bard’s dream turns into a nightmare—when one of the cast is poisoned. Now Lindsey and her crafternooners must take center stage to unmask the culprit before the final curtain call…
I loved this story! Not a huge fan of reading Shakespeare but love watching the plays and this production sounded like so much fun especially due to a very surprising twist.
Let’s face it Jenn McKinlay never disappoints. Each story is better than the last. She creates awesome characters and plots an engaging story around them that just keeps those pages flying. I especially enjoyed new side developing of “the lemon” Ms. Cole. Lindsey and Sully’s relationship is still on the rocks but he gets pretty jealous when another man gives Lindsey a little attention.
Another wonderfully plotted mystery full of twists and turns. You definitely won’t be weeping when you read this story.
If you are new to this series start at the beginning with Books Can Be Deceiving (A Library Lover’s Mystery), you will then want to read every one. If you are already a fan pick up this one as soon as you can.
