Newspaper editor and amateur sleuth Molly Owens takes center stage when it’s curtains for a theater director . . . Living in the beautiful coastal town of Britton Bay, Oregon, seems like the perfect fit for Molly. She enjoys her work as editor-in-chief of the Britton Bay Bulletin, loves her boyfriend Sam, and feels at home in the adorable cottage in the back of his mother’s bed and breakfast. This spring Britton Bay is staging its first-ever community theater production. The show—featuring local residents—is the talk of the town, but tongues are really wagging over the director. But former soap opera actress Magnolia Sweet is anything but; nothing’s worse than a has-been on a power trip, and steely Magnolia chews out her amateur cast like she used to chew scenery. Still, it’s a shock to all when she’s found murdered in the theater. Now it’s open call for suspects, as Molly steps in to direct and shine a spotlight on a killer waiting in the wings. But will this be her final act?


A small and idyllic city that makes people want to know - or maybe - even want to live, where the residents know each other and the news is not kept secret for a long time. Molly is an editor-in-chief and reporter, so when there is an opportunity to interview the director of a theatrical production, just like the great former soap opera actress Magnolia, Molly feels it would be wonderful. Magnolia is a character you don't like at first sight and when she appears dead... Well, you can't feel sorry. But hey! Let's go to the mystery. Who would have reason to kill Magnolia? Mystery and romance for fun.
