Music, love triangles and murder add up to an absolutely perfect combination in Charbonneau’s second Glee Club mystery. Her writing style makes for an easy and fun read, and her characters are well developed and easy to root for. A delight, it’s also a must for anyone who is a fan of TV’s Glee.

Paige Marshall has been struggling to break in to the field of opera, but in the meantime she takes a job directing Prospect Glen High School’s show choir to pay her bills. It looks like things are looking up when she’s cast opposite the famous tenor David Richard in a production at Northwestern University. Then Richard dies in front of everyone at rehearsal, the victim of cyanide poisoning. Desperate attempts to keep the show going are mixed with Paige’s other troubles: She has to choose between two suitors, and she worries about the upcoming show choir concert. But when Paige realizes she may be a murderer’s next target, she goes into sleuth mode to save her job, pick a man, and keep the show that could be her big break going.
