    Preston Wright, one of the actors in the Way Off Broadway Player

    Preston Wright, one of the actors in the Way Off Broadway Players dies in a freak accident in Arizona. The whole group is caught in a flash flood. The others all escape with a couple of broken bones, cuts and bruises. Preston’s death is ruled as an accident, but his mother believes there may have been some foul play. She hires Rory McCain to do a little investigating.

    Rory is also getting close to solving a very, very old cold case, the murder of her ghost partner Zeke. Rory is hunting down villains both in the present and the past. She may ruffle a few feathers but a good investigator always gets her man, or woman!

    Dollycas’s Thoughts
    In this installment you get two mysteries! Love it!

    We find out more of Zeke’s story and determine whether Preston Wright was murdered or just the victim of a crazy accident. Sharon keeps us guessing about both as the clues are figured out. If Wright’s death was an accident he sure had plenty of people around him that were not unhappy to see him go. Zeke’s past is very intriguing and this reader was very worried than when he learned the truth it would free him to stop haunting the present. You will have to read the book for yourself to find out what happens. No Spoilers Here!

    The was a amazingly quick read as we slipped back and forth from the present to 1878. Rory is a strong woman on two missions with her sidekick Zeke there for moral support, a second opinion, and his hi-jinks that made me fall in love with this character. A new character, Eloise, is added to the mix and she is something else. Helene is not as active in this edition but after Sharon’s post above we know she will be back to her meddling self in future stories.

    Saddle up your horse and hold on tight, you are in for a wild ride! This is mystery not to be missed!! You may even Sketch A Falling Star!

    Excellent book, can't wait for the next book in the series

    Sharon Pape never disappoints. Her books are always worth waiting for. Her "Sketch" series is wonderful. She mixes suspense with humor and a warm homey touch. Once I start her books, I can't put them down. I can't wait for the next installment in the series. I want to see what's next for Zeke and Rory. Keep them coming.

    A Delightful Read I love Eloise who finds herself entrenched in

    A Delightful Read

    I love Eloise who finds herself entrenched in Rory’s case without even knowing it. The interplay between Eloise, Rory and Zeke is delightful to watch. In this case, a member of Rory’s Aunt Helene’s acting troupe is accidently killed in a flash flood, or was he? That’s what Rory is seeking the answers and the closer she gets to the finale, danger lurks in the wings. This lighthearted mystery quickly became a page-turner, as I had to know what happens next. What follows are amusing antics as Rory, Zeke and even Hobo learn to live with one another while partnering in their private investigation company. This was a very good read and the best one yet in the fabulously attractive series and I look forward to more adventures with Rory and the gang.
