LET'S GET COZY! MURDER FOR CHOIR: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED  
MURDER FOR CHOIR
A Glee Club Mystery
BY JOELLE CHARBONNEAU
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The first book in a brand-new mystery series set in the world of competitive show choirs.

Even as a struggling opera singer, Paige Marshall has never seen anything like the cutthroat competition of the Prospect Glen High School show choir. Coaching these championship-hungry students may be her toughest gig yet...

Especially when her best young male singer is suspected of killing the arrogant coach of Prospect Glen's fiercest rival. To clear his name, Paige will have to sort through a chorus of suspects, and go note-for-note with a killer who wants her out of the spotlight for good.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Ever since I can remember I loved telling stories. As I grew up, I started performing those stories on the stage. Creating vivid characters and singing wonderfully complex songs were my passion. I graduated from Millikin University with a Bachelors Degree in Vocal Performance and then continued onto DePaul University for my Masters Degree in Opera Performance. From there I went onto perform across the Chicagoland area in a variety of Operas, Operettas and Musicals. I also started teaching acting classes and private voice lessons to pass my passion along to the next generation.

Not exactly the path you’d expect a writer to take.

I’d never dreamed of writing a novel. But I loved to read. Then one day I had an idea and I started to write. I found my passion for creating characters lived on the page as well as the stage. It is my hope that the characters I’ve created resonate with you and make you smile.

I still teach voice lessons and sing for the occasional professional event. But the rest of my time is spent with my husband and son while dreaming up new and interesting stories. I hope that someday I hear yours.

I sang in various school choirs back in the 50s but never in competition. Should make for interesting story telling!

As soon as I read "as struggling opera singer", I knew I wanted to read this cozy, Opera singers have to deal with tremendous competition so I know that they have a tough life.
