Overview

Aspiring conductor Cressa Carraway arrives at her grandmother's cabin at a rural Illinois lake resort, hoping to find some peace and quiet so she can finish composing the symphony she needs to earn her master's degree in Composition. Instead, she finds her grandmother's corpse in the lake.

The authorities dismiss the death as an accidental drowning, but when Gram's best friend drowns in the exact same spot, Cressa just knows something is off-key in this idyllic setting. Convinced that her grandmother's death was anything but an accident, she fights her instinct to flee and starts looking into things herself.

There are lots of people and facts to consider, from the self-important property manager and his brow-beaten wife, to their salacious son, to the elderly widow who may be lacing her home-baked cookies with a dash of poison. As the body count rises, Cressa doesn't know which will be finished first-her symphony or her life.

    When aspiring conductor Tessa Carraway arrives at her grandmothe

    When aspiring conductor Tessa Carraway arrives at her grandmother's cabin in rural Illinois to finish composing her symphony, she finds her grandmother's corpse in a nearby lake. This sets off a chain of events that had me turning pages. The characters are realistically well-drawn, and I loved the clever music references, each appropriate to the mood of the chapter. I highly recommend this novel.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this newest series from Kaye George

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this newest series from Kaye George. Unlike her humorous Imogene Duckworthy series, this is a more 
    serious near cozy (I don't suppose children are allowed to be poisoned in a true cozy even if they don't die??). It takes a new, interesting 
    character, Cressa Carraway, an aspiring classical music conductor, and thrusts her into a community of intrigue, murder, poisonings 
    and motives galore. Good stuff.

    Don't skip the book just because classical music is not your thing. Kaye uses musical terms to introduce each chapter, but they are 
    unobtrusive and well-explained. If you are a classical music buff, it will only add to your pleasure.

    Disclaimer: I read a very early draft of this book as part of a critique group and thought (as is often the case with early drafts) that it was 
    just okay. The edits Kaye made between that draft and publication made it a thoroughly enjoyable read.

    There is one ┬┐small┬┐ item in this mystery besides the title refe

    There is one “small” item in this mystery besides the title reference and that is the inclusion of the poisoning of some small children. However, the title is ironic in the sense that there are a number of murders and they do not seem small in the least. This novel is written in the first person. Cressa Caraway, a university student working on a Master’s Degree in classical music and also an aspiring conductor, visits her grandmother’s rustic cabin in rural Illinois only to discover her grandmother’s dead body in the nearby lake. The police write this death off as accidental, but Cressa knows that her grandmother was a strong swimmer. There are a number of creepy suspects living and lurking in the vicinity. Soon her grandmother’s best friend is also dead, drowned in the same spot. Cressa investigates and is nearly murdered herself. Mystery fans will enjoy this novel and find it very hard to put down. Cressa is involved with both music and murder in this well-written mystery which is part of a series.
