Book Summary

The amateur actors at the Etonville Little Theatre may be known for chewing the scenery, but restaurant manager Dodie O’Dell has something more appetizing for them to sink their teeth into. She’s been taking bows in her small New Jersey town for her theme menus, designed to complement the local productions. This fall, the community theatre is staging Arsenic and Old Lace, set in 1940s Brooklyn, so Dodie is serving up hot dogs, Italian ices, egg creams, and knishes at the weekend food festival.

All is going well until Antonio Digenza, the ex-Off-Off-Broadway director of the show, dies dramatically while noshing on a knish. As rumors of food poisoning quickly spread, Dodie scrambles to rescue the Windjammer restaurant’s reputation. But when clues point to foul play, she’s faced with a cast of suspects all auditioning for the part of DiGenza’s murderer. She’ll need to act fast to shine a spotlight on the killer—before it’s curtains for another victim . . .

Book Review by Bree Herron

The cozy mystery world is seriously going to take over the world. I am finding new diamonds each time I open a cozy. Time Out is no different. Suzanne gives readers just what they need in a cozy, charm, wit and great mystery!

Dodie, oh my new dear friend. You got yourself in a humdinger this time. She is seriously one of the best cozy characters I have come across. She has a sass and at the same time charm that will make the readers fall in love with her. Her friends, and the secondary characters add to her charm, I love when I read a book that gives such support to the primary sleuth in the book. Suzanne, you wrote her well. I think that theater mysteries are the crimes for 2017. And I am not complaining, the scene and the crime were delightful, I really enjoyed it. This book was fun, and so enjoyable that I can’t wait to read Suzanne’s next book. And I can’t wait  to be partner in crime with Dodie.

 

If you are looking for a cozy mystery with fun, charm and a fantastic sleuth then look no further. This book will rock your socks off!
