Limelight & LARCENY: The crew-building con
A hilarious cozy mystery featuring community theater

These actors are going to steal more than the show.

 

The Tandem Players love their community theater almost as much as they love the sweet old landlady who gave them a home to perform their plays in over the years. But when she passes away, and the will that was to leave the Broadtown Theater to the acting troupe disappears, they don’t even have time to mourn their loss. Her son comes in like a wrecking ball, brandishing a twenty-year-old will and an ultimatum: leave, or be buried under the rubble when he has the place demolished.

 

The ragtag group of actors—a street magician, a former stuntwoman, an IT student, an FX specialist, a leading man, and their stage manager—will have to pool their talents and steal the will back. And they’ll have to act fast, because the next wrecking ball that swings in is going to be a real one.

What readers are saying . . .

"This enjoyable story of an acting troupe trying to save their theatre was delightful. The story was engaging and the characters interesting, and their descriptions left enough unsaid that I hope for a sequel to gain more of the mysterious backstory to the characters. It also made me miss the theatre at a time when we aren’t allowed to be there. The story felt real, and I felt actual anxiety during the climax of the story. This was a fun easy read."

"Wow! Fantastic! I loved the cover of this book! It drew my attention right away. Such fun. Enjoyable! This book highlighted the many talents of the Broadtown Theater troupe. They were relatable, likable, unique, loyal, and dependable characters, seeking justice.

 

I laughed a little, got anxious in some situations and cheered when things played out in the story for the troupe. It had everything you would want. A touch of humour. A touch of drama. A touch of suspense. Wow! It had it all!

 

You must read this well paced, well written and well thought out book.

Interesting! I wanted more! I hope there is a book two."
