Will the curtain rise? A Fatal Overture

by Kathleen Marple Kalb

#AFatalOverture #NetGalley

A Fatal Overture is the third historical mystery to feature Ella Shane. The story takes place during the Gilded Age so fans of that TV show may enjoy this view of the time period. Ella is a performer; she is also in love with a British aristocrat so there is a tension in the story over work vs. relationship. Readers of the prior books will no doubt enjoy catching up with the latest on this couple.

Now relatives (a mother and sister) of our aristocrat have come to visit. There is trouble when a body is found in a bathtub in their hotel. Lord Peter Wimsey once investigated a case of a bathtub victim but here we have Kalb’s version. It is entertaining and sure to be enjoyed by cozy mystery aficionados who may also enjoy the opera and show business that are in the novel.

This series is best read in order. However, a reader could still start here and go backwards.

I hear this author on my local news. I am so impressed that she also writes mysteries.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Kensington for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
