With the holidays approaching, amateur sleuth Geneva Pomolo takes a minor role in a community theatre’s musical stage adaptation of A Christmas Carol. A lifelong Dickens fan, Geneva is hoping for a calm respite from the rigors of crime-solving, but her stage debut proves anything but calming. The cast is stacked with powerful egos who have deluded themselves into thinking they deserve a career in Hollywood — such as Peter Vankirk, who lands the starring role of Ebenezer Scrooge against his rival, Reginald Overt, and Annie Rigbee, a young actress who spends her ample free time practicing her autograph. 

When Peter is found lying dead in a garden, every person involved in the play becomes a suspect. In spite of Peter’s theatrical gifts (or perhaps because of them), everyone had a reason for wanting him dead. As Geneva and her partner Iris investigate the killing, they uncover a trail of secrets suggesting that this Scrooge led a double life. 

As tempers flare and bad spirits fester, Geneva senses that Christmas is going to be anything but cheerful. But even she can’t foresee how bad things will get….

    I enjoyed this short cosy mystery. The only reason it gets a four star and not a five star review is because I wish it had been long. I felt you just got to know the characters and then it was over but it is great if you only have a few hours. I have listened to a few of the books in this series and I am not sure where this one comes in the series but as each book book is a stand alone book it doesn’t matter.The story is fun in the fact the characters are slightly older than the normal sleuths in cosy mysteries and I think this works really well for this series as it leads to some interesting and fun situations.The characters are great, I especially liked the way Iris’s date turned out. The story is different in the fact that it starts with the pair wrapping up a case before getting involved in another one .This is a series I will be keeping an eye out for because it is a lot of fun.
    When Geneva and Iris wrap up another case there notoriety gets them noticed and Geneva gets a phone calling asking her preform in a local production of Scrooge and Iris gets a date, is she about to find love?. When Geneva arrives for a rehearsal she is surprised to find that the drama isn’t limited to the stage. With a number of stars and drama queens on stage emotions run high. So high that it leads to the death of the leading actor. Can Geneva and Iris find the killer? Or is it the final call for the pair?
    I liked the narrator she did a good job with all the different voices needed to bring this story to life.
