Author: Tracy Kiely

Genre: Mystery

Series: Nic and Nigel mysteries.

Rating: 3.5/5

Disclaimer: I obtained an advance copy of this book via Netgalley. All opinions are my own.

The play’s the thing, but it’s the star-studded after-party that sends sparks flying

Thrilled that their friend’s Broadway debut was a rousing success, Nic and Nigel Martini, along with Nic’s college pal Harper, are trying to enjoy the exclusive after-party. Unfortunately, all the champagne and repartee in the world aren’t enough to overlook the churlish behavior of Harper’s husband, Dan. Nic is shocked the next morning when she learns that Dan’s been murdered. Nigel thinks the world may be a better place without him.

Still, Harper’s their friend and they’re intent on helping her any way they can. The Martinis will stop at nothing—with the possible exception of cocktails and walks with their bull mastiff Skippy—to see that the killer ends up behind bars.


To be honest I did not know about the existence of this series till I found this book on Netgalley. I just requested it because it looked interesting, and I’m glad I did.

This was a fun read. Unlike most mysteries, it did not strike me as a suspense-packed read that would keep you turning the pages. Rather, I felt it was a great light read. I liked the characters and the plot was not too bad.  wouldn’t recommend it if you’re looking for a mind blowing life-changing read, but if you’re looking for a light murder mystery,do pick this up.
