It's a summer of doublets and couplets, Capulets and corpses! Larkin may think she's switched from detecting to directing, but there are surprises in store as she and Ed find themselves spending four hot weeks camping with the cast.
When Larkin Day gets hired as the Interim Artistic Director of the Summer Shakespeare Festival, she expects to spend her summer working with actors and designers as they put together an outdoor production of Romeo and Juliet.
She doesn't expect to spend her summer solving yet another murder—but when the actor playing Romeo is poisoned, Larkin agrees to play detective one more time.
Not because she thinks the show must go on.
Not even because she wants to save her job.
Larkin takes the case—bringing along her boyfriend Ed, her best friend Anni, and the mysterious Jay Malhotra—because she knows the poison wasn't meant for Romeo.
Somebody is out to kill Juliet—and they don't care who else gets murdered along the way.
