MURDER FOR CHOIR
This new series starts off with a bang and hits all the right notes. Most of the typical amateur sleuth plot devices are used: police love interest, eccentric relative, unconventional pet. Despite the conventional setup, the setting itself is different, and the story is well-salted with red herrings and potential suspects. Paige is an engaging character and, even though no new ground is broken, the overall effect is a charming first effort in a series that should have a long lifespan.
