"A Catskills resort's production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet takes a wickedly ironic turn when the leading lady, Lauren Richmond, is first poisoned and then stabbed. Who would extinguish the life of such a beautiful young actress? Who wouldn't? Seems like just about everyone had a motive to pull the ropes on her final curtain call. At the center of this Shakespearean tragedy is Charlotte Fairfax, formerly the costume mistress of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Upstate New York is a long way from the royal stage, but Charlotte is always the queen of her domain. As this small production's costume designer, she has stitched her way into everyone's lives, learning more than anyone could possibly imagine about the rise and fall of Lauren Richmond. But curiostity killed the cat. And it might well kill the costume designer in this witty and wise series debut."--Back cover.

Although considered a "cozy" mystery, it does not read like most of the cozy mysteries, many of which are tied in with themes such as coffee houses, cats, bake shops and the like. Rather, this one reads more like a straightforward novel in that it has an engaging story with well defined characters, lovely focus details such as references to nature surroundings, and obviously well researched details. The author is gifted in focusing on the story with minimal emphasis on crime details. And I imagine that is why it is defined as a cozy mystery.
