#20 Book Read in 2012
Showstoppers is the second in a mystery series. Emily receives a letter that belongs to her neighbor Victoria. Victoria tells Emily that she has been receiving threatening letters in the mail. Victoria believes that the letters have to do with a video she made in drama school; she believes this video brings bad luck to all who watches it. Victoria's ex, who was in the video with her, is coming to check out a dance school Victoria runs and she hires Emily to work at the dance school and keep an eye on her ex. While at the end of the year show, Victoria's nasty landlord is found dead and she believes he has watched the video and this is his bad luck. . . but was it.
This book was a good, quick read. Emily is an interesting character. She has spunk and a good sense of humor. The secondary characters are decent, especially Dr. Muriel. The book seems rushed a bit though, which probably has to do with its short length--I think Emily can handle keeping a full length book interesting for readers.
I received this book from the author for review.
