Book Summary

English professor Lila Maclean knew drama would be involved when she agreed to consult on Stonedale University’s production of Puzzled: The Musical.

But she didn’t expect to find herself cast into such chaos: the incomprehensible play is a disaster, the crumbling theater appears to be haunted, and, before long, murder takes center stage.

The show must go on—yet as they speed toward opening night, it becomes clear that other members of the company may be targeted as well. Lila searches for answers while contending with a tenacious historical society, an eccentric playwright, an unsettling psychic, an enigmatic apparition, and a paranormal search squad.

With all of this in play, will she be able to identify who killed her colleague…or will it soon be curtains for Lila too?

Book Review by Bree Herron

Ready to get into the spirit of Halloween? Then here is the book for you! It was light hearted as the others in the series, and Lila is on top of her game in this mystery.

I thought the theatre aspect to the mystery was neat, it was a mystery itself and Lila worked hard. But it was the cast of characters that accompanied Lila in this mystery that really drew me in. What a delightful group of characters that will drive you to feel as though you are right there with them.

Overall, I am always pleased with this series and I love this addition. It was engaging and fun, the mystery was complex but not too hard and I was pleased with the outcome at the end. I think that’s how it should be, readers should be happy when they finish a wonderful book, such as this one.
