Book Review: Ding Dong the Diva's Dead

The life of an Opera Singer can be murder...

Deborah de Lille is an opera singer - in the least grand sense. Debbie doesn't foresee a future beyond Handel Messiahs and low-budget tours...until her agent finagles her a minor role with a small-town company.

Will opening night mean "curtains" for Debbie?

I was excited to get my hands on a good mystery and this book is full of strange accidents, random accidents and catty, jealous singers...the perfect mix for murder.  Add to the mix a mother who reads cards and is constantly warning Debbie of danger!  This book will keep you on your toes as you dive head first with Debbie into the world of Opera and intrigue.  Will she survive the first night?  Will she dig a little too deep and get a little too close to the truth? 

I enjoyed the unique setting of the book, but I am not big into theater so that aspect was a little out of my 'box' so to speak.  I can't really say anything bad about this book because it was exciting and well written, I just had a more difficult time getting into the setting than I have in other books.  If you're a lover of theater, opera, mysteries you'll be sure to enjoy this book!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from Tribute Books.
