With help from Trixie, the lively ghost of a 1930s usherette, Nora sets out to solve the crime, all while dealing with the latest manipulations from her lying ex, the meddling of a Hollywood mogul with revenge on his mind, and the mysterious delivery box of classic movie memorabilia.

4.5 Stars 

This is the third book in the A Movie Palace mystery series by Margaret Dumas.

Basic premise: There is a premiere of a video game on the grounds of the Palace Theater. And before the night is over the creator is murdered!

It looks like Nora’s ex-hubby Hollywood mogul is a constant thorn in her side no matter what book he’s in. He is basically the one that gets Nora tangled into everything. 

Now we have the mysterious neighbor who has ties to the mob kissing Nora and leaving all of us rather hot and bothered. Then add in the ghostly usherette, Trixie, and you have a great looking cast. All the regulars are super fun and the entire atmosphere is just a pleasure to experience.

This whole gaming section is kinda awesome. I like how it held tight with the main mystery and just made the entire read an overall wonderful thing. Definitely a series I will continue to follow.

If you like this type of book and want to read a good cozy mystery, check this one out for sure. You won’t be disappointed.


I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank Edelweiss, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
