Publisher's Summary

William Shakespeare is credited with inventing how many words?*

Answering Shakespeare trivia comes with the job description for library director Lindsey Norris. But when the Briar Creek Community Theater mounts their newest production of the Bard, she has no intention of leaving the stacks for the stage. Unfortunately a villain is waiting in the wings....

Former Broadway actress Violet La Rue is holding auditions for A Midsummer Night's Dream - and everyone from the sour spinster librarian Ms. Cole to Lindsey's youthful library pages are trying out for parts. Brought in to play the mischievous Puck is the flirtatious professional actor Robbie Vine, who seems to have eyes for Lindsey. Before her blush has faded, the Bard's dream turns into a nightmare - when one of the cast is poisoned. Now Lindsey and her crafternooners must take center stage to unmask the culprit before the final curtain call....

    "This is a great series"
    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to the first 4 books in this series and I am looking forward to #5 and #6 becoming available in audio. I have given all 5 stars to the first 3 books and I'm giving this one an overall 5 and 5 for the narrator. The only reason that I'm giving 4 stars for the story on this one is that I'm not a big fan of romantic triangles and too much angst in my mysteries. I like some romance, and I enjoyed the relationship that has been building between Lindsay and Sully from the beginning, but lately there have just been too many side tracks, and it pulls my attention away from the flow of the story. That's not to say this is not a great book - and I'm sure others really enjoy the twists and turns in the relationship. It's just not my preference. But bottom line...these are great books and I highly recommend them. I will be watching for the next one to become available in audio.

    "Great story"
    Would you listen to Read It and Weep again? Why?

    Yes, Lindsey is a great character who always speaks her mind. She is not easily bullied into situations or too worried about what other people think. Also, the ending was definitely a surprise!

    "Beyond Belief"

    The worse thing you can do as an author of a cozy mystery is introduce a love triangle that takes center stage. That is exactly what has happened in this book. This new plot line is unrealistic and annoying. I already bought the next book but that will be the last book in the series.
