Review By LAWonder10:

The setting of this novel begins in New York, in 1880. Arabella Pryce, a popular actress, received the shocking news that her wealthy husband died while returning from a trip to Colorado. He had bought her the theater and had invested in a hotel in Colorado. He had spent quite a lot of time there while she pursued her acting career. His will left one stipulation in order to inherit his fortune… How could he do this to her?!

With her loyal assistant by her side, Arabella experiences shock, discomfort, and being framed for murder. Arabella also has a hidden secret that not even those closest to her know about. Will it be her doom or will it be her salvation?

This is a suspenseful, fun, murder mystery with a slight element of romance that the author is so well-known for. This series has a slight paranormal element to it and I totally enjoyed it. 

The Title is a creative “play on words” and the Cover Image is perfect. It is clever and eye-catching. The characters are very realistic and feel familiar. The scenes are described so well they draw the reader/listener into the story to experience the different scenarios. 

I cannot wait to read/listen to the next book in this series!

I offer a Five Stars rating.
