Murder for Choir – IN STORES NOW

Paige Marshall has worked hard to become the next opera sensation, only the big break she’s been dreaming of still hasn’t come. With bills to pay, she moves into her aunt’s house in the northern suburbs of Chicago and takes a job as a vocal coach and show choir instructor at Prospect Glen High School. After all, she’s sung at the Lyric Opera. How hard can coaching show choir be? After two days of teaching at the end of summer annual show choir camp, Paige decides coaching show choir is hell. The students don’t trust a classical singer to lead them to victory and the other coaches treat her like an unwelcome outsider. But when Paige finds a rival director strangled with a microphone cord and one of her students comes under suspicion she realizes she has one choice: to give the performance of a lifetime and track down the real killer before the killer strikes again.
