English professor Lila Maclean knew drama would be involved when she agreed to consult on Stonedale University’s production of Puzzled: The Musical.

But she didn’t expect to find herself cast into such chaos: the incomprehensible play is a disaster, the crumbling theater appears to be haunted, and, before long, murder takes center stage.

The show must go on—yet as they speed toward opening night, it becomes clear that other members of the company may be targeted as well. Lila searches for answers while contending with a tenacious historical society, an eccentric playwright, an unsettling psychic, an enigmatic apparition, and a paranormal search squad.

With all of this in play, will she be able to identify who killed her colleague…or will it soon be curtains for Lila too?



Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Great mixture of mystery and paranormal!!!!

Lila is working for the first time as a dramatic consultant for the production of Puzzled: The Musical, but the director either ignores her or touts his own decisions as “brilliant.” Like many on campus, she doesn’t think this production will be a success. But, they forge ahead since the creator is a professor at the university. She had no idea this venture would lead to murder.

The mystery itself was full of twists and turns which kept me guessing, especially when it seems other people who are involved in the production are targeted as well. Lila is witty and intelligent, a very likeable character. The cast of quirky secondary characters add to the storyline itself. I’m a huge fan of the paranormal, so I loved that addition. I really loved how the author actually made the Opera House itself a character!

If you are looking for a smart, intelligent cozy mystery, I highly recommend reading this one and the entire series! Be sure to check out the author’s note at the end of the book! I found it quite fascinating!!!
