MacDeath by Cindy Brown
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
MacDeath is the first book in the Ivy Meadows mystery series. It is well written and professionally edited.
The heroine, Ivy (Olive), is a professional actress in a local, small performance of Macbeth. She pays her bills by holding down "real" jobs. When the leading man is found dead on opening night she is convinced that he was murdered. With the help of her private detective uncle, she sets off to solve the crime.
Sometimes the first book in a series can be hard reading because the necessary introduction of characters can bog the plot down. But Cindy Brown handled the challenge very nicely. The characters were fully developed and the plot moved along briskly.
I recommend MacDeath and I look forward to reading more books in this series.
