(A Dodie O'Dell Mystery)
by Suzanne Trauth
Cozy Mystery 3rd in Series
Lyrical Underground (October 10, 2017)
Paperback: 220 pages
Restaurant manager Dodie O'Dell's themed food ideas have been called cute, clever, and delicious, but never revolutionary—until now. Dodie's Windjammer Restaurant is stocking the Etonville Little Theatre's concession stand with colonial-era desserts and drinks: Swamp Yankee applesauce cake, pumpkin bread, hot cider punch, and mulled wine to complement the latest production. A local playwright has adapted Thornton Wilder's Our Town into Eton Town, shifting the story to colonial America and the founding of Etonville, New Jersey, shortly after the Revolutionary War.On opening night, hours before the curtain rises, Dodie runs into an agitated actress backstage with blood on her hands. Then a stranger is found among the chairs set for a graveyard scene with a knife in his chest. The show will not go on—the theatre is now a crime scene. Hoping to clear the red-handed suspect, Dodie returns to the role of amateur sleuth to mull over the clues and beat the backstage stabber to the punch—before someone else becomes history . . .

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Great new addition to this series. As the third book the characters are well established and their personal lives are evolving nicely. Dodie's romance with the chief is heating up slightly as well. The new play is to be a strange remake of Our Town but when a dead body is found onstage opening day things grind to a halt. I am beginning to think the ELT is cursed but it makes for a great addition to the story as it moves along. Dodie is quite determined in her investigating and I enjoy the scenarios she finds herself in. If you enjoy cozy mysteries that have a theatre flare to them this is so the series for you. I really enjoyed it so I give it 4/5 stars.
