Book 4 in the Poppy McAllister Mysteries
by Libby Klein

The last thing gluten-free baker Poppy McAllister needs in her life is more drama—or more murder . . .
Poppy thought her toughest challenge this winter would be sticking to her Paleo diet and filling all her orders for her gluten-free goodies, but now she has to choose between two suitors. She’s not the only one with boyfriend drama. Aunt Ginny’s long-ago high-school beau, Royce Hanson, a retired Broadway actor, has returned to Cape May, New Jersey, to star in a Senior Center staging of Mamma Mia. Leaving Aunt Ginny to wonder: What's his motivation?
Slated to open February 13th, the problem-plagued production seems to be cursed—with stolen props, sabotage, and even a death threat. But when a cast member plunges to his death from a catwalk, it soon becomes clear a murderer is waiting in the wings. Now Poppy, Aunt Ginny, and a supporting cast must take center stage to catch the killer—before it's curtains for someone else . . . 
Includes Seven Recipes from Poppy’s Kitchen!

Oh, Libby, Libby, Libby. Your books pull me in with the promise of great mysteries to solve (and they always are), but keep me laughing so hard my sides hurt! With lines like . . . It wasn’t my proudest moment, being shaken down by four old ladies . . . THEATER NIGHTS ARE MURDER is no different, and my tissue box stayed close at hand for all the tears of laughter!

Author Libby Klein has been a breath of fresh air since her first book, CLASS REUNIONS ARE MURDER. I knew she was going to be a booming voice in the cozy mystery genre, and she has not let me down.  

The way this tale took off from the first page I knew I was in for an amazing read. THEATER NIGHTS ARE MURDER, book four in the Poppy McAllister Mysteries, is more than just a cozy mystery. This book is a character driven, impossible to put down, page turning, action filled, laugh inducing, first class mystery, and all around brilliantly written story from cover to cover.

Fans of this series are going to be thrilled with this latest installment. Those new to the series are going to kick themselves for not having started it sooner.

By far one of my favorite books of 2019, THEATER NIGHTS ARE MURDER is my number one recommendation to start off your 2020 reading list. (Releases Dec 31, 2020)

Libby Klein graduated Lower Cape May Regional High School sometime in the '80s. Her classes revolved mostly around the culinary sciences and theater, with the occasional nap in Chemistry. She loves to drink coffee, bake gluten free goodies, and befriend random fluffy cats. She writes from her Northern Virginia office while trying to keep her cat Figaro off her keyboard. Most of her hobbies revolve around eating, and travel, and eating while traveling.
