Murder, a frame job, and amateur detectives sounds intriguing, right? Out on a run, Ruby finds the body of a murdered cast mate. When suspection on her, she and another cast mate set out to solve the truth of who really did it.
This was a quick enjoyable read. While I was slightly confused in the beginning it, felt like I was missing some of the background information (found out this is a spin off series.) The story was unique and well written. The characters are well built. I loved how Ruby used her skill set to work on solving the mystery like the song she uses to remember the clues as they find them. I would suggest giving this book a read.

“The Sound of Murder” written by K.L. Montgomery is the first book in the Musical Murder Mystery series. Chorus girl, Ruby, is on tour with a traveling theatre troupe when she finds the deceased body of a fellow cast mate. Ruby is determined to get to the bottom of the murder, and uses song as way to keep her thoughts organized. This book was unlike any other mystery that I’ve read! I loved the setting and the humor that you don’t typically see in this genre.

For me this was a fun and exciting read! The characters were great and the story was interesting enough that you didn’t figure it out in the beginning and then felt like you had to continue reading! Ruby sure knows how to take the lead! I will note there is possibly a book before this one but it is not super important just would have been helpful!

This was a great, short and funny and packed full of drama and adventure. This cozy mystery certainly put me through the ringer emotion wise it had me on the edge of my seat, rolling on the floor laughing and it even had me in tears by the end. The characters were amazing, and as a drama geek I loved how original the title and the plot line were. So if your looking for a short fun read this weekend make sure you pick up this one today.

It’s been a long time since I read something by this author but I wasn’t disappointed. I loved this cozy mystery. It had humor, great characters and of course- mystery. It was a really quick read but a lot of enjoyment. The storyline flew by and I couldn’t put it down. A great escape from reality… Five stars from me!

Ruby just doesn’t seem to have much luck. As a plus-sized girl, she’s always looked over for leading roles and it seems like people die around her. What’s a girl to do?

This book is full of action and adventure, with lots of great musical throwbacks. I’m a theater junkie myself and have been in roles but always felt a little like Ruby. When Diane is murdered during this tour, Ruby puts on her sleuthing hat and decides to get to the bottom of who took her out. Along the way, Ruby befriends Nova who is just as eager to help her out.

I love how Ruby put her clues to a song!! I sang it every time as I read it! I also love how the author chose a very realistic character in Ruby. She’s not the leading lady or the most beautiful, fit girl. However, Ruby is a very fantastic character and one that is easy to fall in love with!

I look forward to more books in this series. I understand that there is a prequel to this book but I didn’t feel lost in any details. Many of the previous book’s information was shared to give a reader enough background without ruining that previous story.

This page-turner was a great, fast read with laugh out loud moments and solid storyline!

This book had me excited from the cover alone! You immediately think murder mystery theater mixed with Oktoberfest. I could not get enough of Ruby. She was sweet, talented, and down to earth. When a member of her theater cast is murdered eyebrows are raised and questions are had. Ruby immediately dives in to figure out the mystery and the case begins. This book was fun, funny, had a delightful group of characters, and of course an amazing MC. This mystery is a perfect companion to a cozy chair and hot cup of tea.

I just have to start by saying that this was such a light read, despite the subject matter. Haha! It almost reminded me of the Heather Wells Mysteries series by Meg Cabot. I loved how all of Ruby’s friends have very similarly themed names (Celeste, Sunshine, Nova). However, my favorite part is just how punny Ruby’s inner monologs were. (I’m a sucker for a good pun!) It took a few pages to get into the story (especially when it kept vaguely referring to the story of a prior murder from a different series), but it ended up being a by the book cozy murder mystery that had me turning the page just to read more. I don’t want to give any spoilers, so I won’t get too much more specific than I have already.
