Smashwords book reviews by Calliope Press

  • Murder in the Second Row on Jan. 07, 2011

    As a New York City actor, how I loved soaking up the atmosphere of the New Zealand Regent Theatre that witty heroine Jessica Jones manages so capably and lovingly. On top of her usual chores of running this charming, decaying 130-year-old relic with its leaking roof, and placating those who are preparing the next production, Jessica finds herself thrust into the role of amateur sleuth. She must solve the mystery of the body in the second row and find out who is writing those demented threatening letters. She has plenty of suspects: likable and not so likable actors, those who toil behind the scenes (and do it all for love), and greedy developers who want the theatre to fail. Jessica gets needed assistance from outside sources and, in the process, finds the man of her dreams. Throughout this fast-paced, delightful mystery, I was rooting for Jessica and the theatre to succeed. I eagerly await further adventures of this motley crew.
