4.0 out of 5 stars Backstage Fun 30 Nov. 2009
By StellaMaris818 - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Shelley Freydont, a former dancer, wrote this humorous and rather delicious cozy debut about retired dancer now turned suburban housewife Lindy Haggerty. Now with an empty nest and a husband who is constantly on business trips, Lindy has grown quite bored with life. Lucky for Lindy, her best friend from her dancing days Biddy calls her up for some help with rehearsals for the Jeremy Ash Dance Company. Unlucky for Lindy she finds herself in the middle of more drama backstage than on stage. The dance company's no-so-very-nice and very jealous diva causes everyone to climb the walls, until she's found murdered in her dressing room. With the diva gone, rehearsals run smoothly but everyone is a suspect

While Backstage Murder can be quite predictable, especially toward the end, Freydont creates endearing and memorable characters (wait until Rebo shows up) who keep the reader interested and often laughing while trying to figure out

4.0 out of 5 stars Deserves a curtain call 10 Oct. 2000
By algerina - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I love theatrical murders and this is delightful. The author did a great job of describing the backstage bickering and pressures. The characters are well developed. Lindy Haggerty is suffering from an empty nest when an offer to get back into show business arrives in the form of her old friend. She joins the dance company only to find a Diva from hell causing trouble for everyone. I liked the light touch of romance. The clues and red herrings were spread about in a minefield of misdirection. If I had one complaint it is that Ms Freydont took so long to kill the victim. I was so annoyed by the character I was ready to do it myself. This book is a great read.
