Overview

A cop at the opera...

Wisteria Tearoom owner Ellen Rosings coaxes Detective Tony Aragón to go with her to the Santa Fe Opera, but the magnificent performance of Tosca ends in disaster. In bizarre counterpoint to the opera's plot, the leading man is murdered in his dressing room, and Tony must rush to secure the crime scene. Ellen is left to comfort Vi Benning, a former server at the tearoom who is now an apprentice at the Opera and a protégée of the slain singer.

No opera aficionado, Tony turns to Ellen for help navigating the world in which he must now conduct an investigation. At the same time, Ellen is coping with a sudden, mysterious jump in business at the tearoom. Her problems are eclectic:

...Who killed the famous baritone?
...What do the antique letters she's found have to do with the tearoom's resident ghost?
...And will she and Tony ever find time for a normal date?

This cozy mystery is the third in the Wisteria Tearoom Mysteries series.

I enjoyed this mystery. Her characters are getting more multi-dimensional. I look forward to seeing what happens next in the saga of Ellen and Tony. I also wonder what wi?l be found out about the Captain's long ago murder. I hope the author continues to write this series for a long time.

Pleasant read with some interesting grownups who manage to converse without swearing and fall in love without falling into bed. Yet:) I enjoyed the descriptions. The facts about the business are realistic.

A good book.

This is an enjoyable cozy, but the mystery almost seems to take a back seat to the characters and workings of the tea room. The characters are interesting, likable, and fairly well developed. I like the writing style and plan to read more by this author, but I do hope her other mysteries have a little more meat on their bones. JB
