Murder on Cue (Jocelyn O'Roarke Mystery) by Jane Dentinger

Murder takes center stage in an entertaining mystery set in the theater world--the first in a series from successful stage actress Jane Dentinger. Watch for Viking's release of Dentinger's new novel Deadpan. was an Edgar Award nominee. Advertising in mystery publications.
I enjoyed this story a lot; it is well thought out and the characters are spot on. All the characters are actors and the backstories are great for each. Jacelyn has been an actress for a while and knows everyone in the business, so when she is being set up for the murder of the star of the play she's in, she takes it on herself to find out who did it. There are many suspects, but the clues are scant. This is a good read.
Murder on Cue-
Story has an excellent plot containing surprising turns. The character development is complete and not at all disappointing.The end comes to soon and left me with the need for further adventures with the heroine.
At first I was a little unsure about the book (didn't know the author) but as I got into it, I really enjoyed it, and frankly marathon read it until I finished. Would read more by this author. Loved the main character.
discovered this series several years ago and with this book have now read them all. Loved all the characters and there could be so much more to their stories, hate it that there are no more.
Interesting book but very talky. Disappointing in that respect. All set for a good backstage mystery but let down. Maybe next book will be better.
Can't wait to read the next one.
Good plot. Surprise ending.

I received a copy of "Murder on Cue" from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Description From the Publisher:

In the first book of the Jocelyn O’Roarke series, when a Broadway show’s lead actress is murdered, her understudy must race to find the killer before it’s too late

Struggling actress Jocelyn “Josh” O’Roarke just got a real offer. Well, something resembling a real offer. Her old friend Austin Frost has written a play for Broadway and cast the glamorous Harriet Weldon as the lead. Not wishing to leave his old friend Josh behind, he has invited her to be Harriet’s understudy. The role of understudy is a difficult one—and it becomes even more so when Harriet turns up dead and the police name Josh their prime suspect.

With the NYPD breathing down her neck, Josh must find the people responsible while ensuring that the show will go on.

Murder on Cue is the first book of the Jocelyn O’Roarke mystery series, which also includes First Hit of the Season and Death Mask.

My Review of "Murder on Cue"

Remember the dream of growing up and becoming a famous actress. Time may have taken away that dream, Jane Detinger has given that back to the reader with "Murder on Cue". From the opening lines to the last word you are suddenly immersed in the theatrical world of Jocelyn "Josh" O'Roarke. From practicing your lines, blocking the moves, and the excitement of opening night. What you may not have planned for is the murder of the lead actress, supposedly by her understudy.

Filled with a wide range of characters that are well planned and come across as individuals even if they have a different way of seeing the world. The book moves at a steady pace and takes the reader on a journey to unmask the killer and prove O'Rourke's innocence. If you like theatrical cozy mysteries then this is a definite must read. My rating of "Murder on Cue" is 4.25 out of 5 stars.
