Having experienced high school show choirs as a parent, I enjoyed the insider's view this story offered. I have not read the earlier books in the series. This was a fun read. The solution to the mystery was not obvious. There were a surprising number of people who were not quite what they seemed. One piece was not clarified. A possible answer was given, but not substantiated.

If you love music, books, mystery with a side of whimsy pick up all of the books in this series. I've enjoyed them so much! Joelle makes her characters ones that you would want to meet & have a cup of tea or coffee with.

The Prospect Glen Glee Club, Music in Motion, is in Nashville for a National Show Choir competition. They have the talent. They have the heart. Nothing can stop Prospect Glen’s choir from taking home the trophy. But below the soaring voices, there are murmurs of suspicion. So-called accidents keep befalling the other choirs. Yet Prospect Glen remains untouched. With their competitors clamoring for them to be disqualified, the group may soon be singing a different tune. If there’s anyone who can restore harmony to the competition, it’s Paige. But this time she’ll needs to stick her neck out to discover who’s behind the sabotage, or she may end up singing her own swan song… Dollycas’s Thoughts This a fun cozy series. Fans of the television show Glee and movies like Pitch Perfect would love this entire series. Again Joelle Charbonneau has hit all the right notes. Her characters just sing on these pages. As these stories continue the characters continue to grow and evolve, both the adults and the teenagers. Paige is still trying to make it as an opera singer but she really enjoys working with these kids. As if a long bus ride and a week long stay in a hotel with a bunch of teenagers weren’t enough one of the local competition volunteers, LuAnn, ends up dead. This volunteer had a real beef with Paige and the Music in Motion group. She was doing everything she could to get them disqualified and no one seems to know why. Then of course Paige is the one to find her body after an apparent hit and run. This moves her the “person of interest” list when the case is ruled as a homicide and this time she is out of her favorite detective’s jurisdiction. But Millie, Aldo and Killer do make the trip so Millie can do the team’s makeup. That Killer is quite the canine. Hopefully they can get Paige out of this mess. The author takes us behind the scenes of the competition from the rehearsals to the final performance and everything in between. She definitely writes what she knows. She has choreographed a very clever mystery too. Plenty of real suspects and unexpected turns. One that made this reader quite happy.

Joelle Charbonneau is on a roll with the third book in the Glee Club mystery series, A Chorus Lineup. Cozy fans who love music will really enjoy the Show Choir from Prospect High and their director Paige Marshall. It's a combination of the hit television series, Glee and the movie Pitch Perfect with a murder thrown in for good measure. Full of action, twists and turns galore and a red herring or two, this cozy will appeal to readers and music lovers a like. A great addition to the series! What I liked: The theme for this cozy series is a lot of fun. Singing groups of all kinds from acapella to those with instrumentalists have become all the rage with successful television shows and movies, and now Joelle Charbonneau is bringing it to cozy readers as well. I loved all the information about the rehearsals and costumes and all of the behind the scenes stories. I thought it was a great theme and somewhat unique. The idea that the director is waiting for her big break is also a fun element to the story. Paige is quit the sleuth, and in this one she is definitely a person of interest in the murder. She has a beef with the lady who becomes the victim, LuAnn. When she is accused of cutting up costumes and causing trouble at a competition she and her choir are attending. I liked the way that Charbonneau set up the murder in order to make Paige look possibly guilty. It gave the book an edge that was enjoyable. Wondering whether it was going to get better instead of worse for the heroine gave it an urgency we haven't had before in this series. The mystery aspects were well written. There were plenty of suspects besides Paige and once she convinces Christine it wasn't her, she goes about finding a killer. There were a few unexpected twists and turns that had me going for awhile, but eventually it figured it out close to the end. I thought the motive a wee bit predictable, but that didn't take away from the overall enjoyment of the book. I'm looking forward to seeing how Paige's big audition turns out as well as her relationship with Devlyn and with Mike. Changes are around the corner it appears and I can't wait to see what happens next. What I didn't like: Not too much to report here. I do admit that I wonder how much potential there is for this to be a long running series. The motive for this one was slightly predictable and I wonder how many more musically related ideas the author can come up with. A ton, I hope. This is a great series. Bottom Line: If you haven't tried this series yet, I think you will be pleasantly surprised, especially if you are a music lover. A Chorus Lineup is a fun cozy read with a personal touch.

A Chorus Line-Up is the third book in the Glee Club series. This is the first book that I have read in this fun series. The Prospect High School choir are on their way to Nashville, TN for the National Show Choir championship. A last minute change has Paige Marshall substituting for Donna in a Masters class with Scott Paris. While looking for Scott to discuss the Master's class, someone gets into some of the choirs staging rooms and ruins costumes and instruments. LuAnn, another choir director, had seen Paige backstage when the damage had to have been done and tells the Championship director, Christine, that she wants the Prospect Choir sent packing. Soon LuAnn is run down and killed by a hit and run driver. Paige had been asked by an unknown person the to meet them behind the theater, just where LuAnn is hit. With Paige finding the body and the earlier accusation by LuAnn, naturally becomes a person of interest for a while. Then Paige's investigative skills come in to view and Christine wants her to find who is behind the killing of LuAnn, or the Prospect choir will suffer. An enjoyable story with real and interesting characters. And little romance too. Will be watching for the next book.
