Dodie O’Dell has moved to quiet, cozy Etonville, New Jersey to escape the devastation of Hurricane Sandy and start a new life as a restaurant manager. But mayhem erupts at the Etonville Little Theatre and a man is murdered, the hunky police chief is new to small town life, and Dodie must solve the mysteries before the show can go on!
Author Suzanne Trauth’s experience as a playwright, screenwriter, and university theater professor is evident in the theater details and realism present in Show Time.
I found Show Time a fast read – and one I didn’t want to put down. I am sure you will love this book as much as I did!

This was a fun cozy with a restaurant/theater theme.
This one kept me guessing and there were many twists and turns. This was a great first in a series and I look forward to more.
