The first in a brand new series, Murder For Choir is not only a fantastically fun plot, but it will also be a fan favorite. Seeing as that the TV show, Glee, is right up everyone’s alley right now, writing a new series that centers on a teacher and their students is almost like reading about old friends.
Paige Marshall is an opera singer but is having a difficult time trying to land a singing role at the moment. Staying with her Aunt Millie who’s a Mary Kay representative, Paige accepts a job as an instructor/coach with the Show Choir in the town of Prospect Glen. The new teacher isn’t getting a great reception from the students, as they want to be champions in the competitions taking place in their area and they don’t think Paige is qualified to coach them.
When Paige is on her way to see the director, Greg Lucas, she goes into the auditorium and finds it dark. All that’s visible is the Grand Piano up on the stage, and it looks as if there’s someone sitting on the bench. Walking toward it, Paige does find Greg – unfortunately, he’s been strangled by the microphone cord and is very, very dead.
Paige’s best male singer is the main suspect, but she decides to go on the hunt for more people to investigate. Looking at a number of suspects, including the wife of the victim and his co-workers who didn’t like him all that much, she ends up coming into contact with a police detective who doesn’t appreciate her help. As Paige continues to dig, she begins to come to the notice of the killer and he/she has one thought in mind – how to eliminate the Glee Club teacher.
This is a very smartly written book. The characters are a mixed bag including everyone from the kids in the choir to Paige’s Aunt Millie, who just loves that Mary Kay Pink Cadillac! A truly fun read that will have readers looking for Book Two as soon as they finish.
Until Next Time, Everybody,
