Murder, Most Sincerely: A Romantic Backstage Mystery by Beverly Nault is a very light, quick read. Lucy Lambert is a stage director for a community theater performing The Wizard of Oz. It is Lucy’s dream job and she has done good work until closing night when the Tin Man is found dead on stage because of faulty rigging. It is ruled an accident, but Lucy is not so sure. Penny, the puppy playing Toto, has also been poisoned on this night and Cade, a veterinarian in the audience, takes the dog to his office and saves it, while in the process becoming a special friend to Lucy. The police and the theater company believe it was due to carelessness by Lucy not checking the props better and she is about to lose her job and in turn her apartment. Lucy and Cade work together looking for clues and find themselves in several scary situations before they find a solution.

Murder, Most Sincerely: A Romantic Backstage Mystery was told without sex and too much violence. This would be a perfect book for a teenage girl as it has all of the elements she would find enjoyable. Beverly Nault has written a very tasteful and pure murder mystery plus the beauty of a budding romance added perfectly to complete the story. I enjoyed reading this book but really feel it should be in the teen/young adult reader’s category for its wholesomeness and sweet plot. Murder, Most Sincerely and Beverly Nault are headed for good things.
