Publisher's Summary

Invited to stage a Mystery Night for the annual antebellum house tour of the Historical Preservation Society of Chastain, South Carolina, Annie Laurance instead finds herself the leading lady in a flesh-and blood drama. The play's the thing when the curtain falls on grande dame Corinne Webster. While jeweled fingers point, accusing Annie of murder, the perpetrator lurks among the cast and the murder weapon is one of the props.

Within the tight-laced society of Chastain, Annie is guilty until proven innocent. With her fiancé, Max Darling, Annie pieces together evidence to clear her name - until the chief witness is murdered. Now it will take all of her sleuthing skills to discover the evil in the heart of Chastain's Beautiful People.

    "Great book!"

    I have read or listened to every Death on Demand book in the series. I love Kate Reading. She does a good job of reading.

    This is light reading, but, interesting good story and always surprise endings.

    "Carolina Ladies Front and Center"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes this is a great series. Some better than others, but worth recommending. A little much on the facts for the Mystery. Had to re-listen to catch everything.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was sad, each time I listen it still gives me pause.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Reading’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, she brings authority and calm to the characters.

    "Interesting plot"

    I'm so glad the early books were added. I started with the earliest Death on Demand available on Audible at the time. They don't have to be read in order, but it seems more fun that way. Classic mystery techniques.

    "Love the Annie and Lawrence series"

    Carolyn hart is great author of mysteries that are more on thinking and violence.
