Business is humming at Dodie O'Dell's Windjammer Restaurant, where she offers theme menus connected to the Etonville Little Theatre’s amateur productions. This June, the theatre is collaborating with the neighboring Creston Players to stage Bye Bye Birdie under the stars—their first musical! There's a contest in the play to pick a fan to receive rock idol Conrad Birdie's last kiss before he ships off for the Army, so Dodie plans a contest to pick the food for a pre-show picnic.
But before the show opens, Ruby, the rehearsal accompanist, is found dead in her car. Why would anyone murder the crusty old gal who loved to sneak a smoke and a nip between wisecracks? Once again, the resourceful restaurant manager must play the part of amateur sleuth, accompanied by Police Chief Bill Thompson, who also happens to be her beau. Confronted with a chorus of suspects, she'll need to stay composed to catch the killer—or it'll be bye bye Dodie…

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

What a delightful new installment to this wonderful cozy mystery series. Dodie is gearing up for the start of another play in town and the theme they will serve with it. Things with Bill are slowly settling and the hope is for a smooth production. Of course there are always others with different ideas and when the accompanist is found dead in her car on the side fo the road questions start coming to Dodie. Being her she start asking those questions which gives us surprises as well as some intriguing twists to the mystery. Great characters, sweet setting, and a mystery to keep you guessing all with a theater theme what more could you want. Great for fans of the genre. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
