A local costuming guild has arrived in Astoria for a long weekend of recreating their favorite time period – the Regency. Think Jane Austen, sailing ships, high tea, a costume ball, and…a dead body.
When the guild’s nastiest member winds up dead in the drink, Viola is convinced it’s no accident. And after the husband of the deceased gets into a brawl on the front lawn of the town’s most well-known landmark, she knows something’s up. Armed with nothing more than a folding fan and her wits, she sets out to unveil the killer before somebody else winds up in Davy Jones’ locker.

Shéa MacLeod writes urban fantasy post-apocalyptic sci-fi paranormal romances with a twist of steampunk. Mostly because she can’t make up her mind which genre she likes best so she decided to write them all.
After six years living in an Edwardian town house in London just a stone’s throw from the local cemetery, Shéa headed back to her hometown of Portland, Oregon. She plans to live out her days eating mushroom pizza, drinking too many caramel lattes, exploring exotic locales, and avoiding spiders.
Shéa is the author of the Viola Roberts Cozy Mysteries and the bestselling Lady Rample Mysteries.

MacLeod really shows off the humor of Viola. I had a lot of fun listening to her antics with her friends in this novel. A Renaissance party is really a great way to bring about some frustration as well as some crazy fun murder plots! It was fast paced and really had me wanting more of Viola and I sincerely hope I can listen to her adventures in the future. 5/5 stars.

Loved the narration as always! Excellent character voices and emotions. Great pacing and no blips from what I could tell. I hope they continue to work together. 5/5 stars!!
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Yvette Keller. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
