Costume designer Charlotte Fairfax has another murder on her hands as she prepares for the latest performance of the Catskills Shakespeare Theater Company, Much Ado About Nothing. The company’s steady growth enables them to cast star British actress Audrey Ashley, who arrives on scene to play the lead role of Beatrice. But things immediately get more complicated when Audrey insists the company replace the current director with new, up and coming British director Edmund Albright.
Edmund plans to change the popular romantic comedy, which alienates several people associated with the production. And the list of people he upsets only grows: the laid off former director, the hotel owner’s secretary, and even Audrey herself. Just as Edmund’s plans are about to come to fruition, his body is discovered on his sofa, holding a gun in his hand. His death is quickly ruled a suicide but Charlotte thinks otherwise. Why would Edmund, on the brink of greatness, kill himself? And in such an American way?
With a whole cast of characters to investigate, Charlotte is determined to unmask each one before it’s final curtain call on the whole production in award-winning author Elizabeth J. Duncan’s third Shakespeare in the Catskills mystery, Much Ado About Murder.

Review
If you like the world of plays (especially Shakespeare) then this is the cozy mystery series for you. We have made it to the fall performances but the Director quits his job and the new guest star demands a specific British guy be hired. They hire him but he has a vision of the play they all seem to disagree with which makes things a little dicey. When he is found shot things get even more complicated making the performance look like it will not go on. A quick new hire fixes things though in the way they expected. When the death is deemed a suicide Charlotte does not believe it so she starts looking into things in her own sweet way which while it may seem like a normal investigation it sure does come with some great results. The blend of murder, the play, and all the character interactions blend into a really wonderful cozy mystery that I highly recommend to fans of the genre. I highly enjoyed it so it gets 4/5 stars.
