      Ok, so I had no intention of reading this book since it screams "Glee Bandwagon" but a GR friend read it and liked it quite a bit, and since we have a lot of reading interests in common, I went ahead and bought it. Then it sat on my TBR for quite some time while I procrastinated picking it up. I've finally read it and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! It was a very strong first-in-series.What I didn't like (very short list): Paige is a bit too much of a busybody throughout the book. Just [...]

      I didn't finish the book; I gave up at the end of chapter 14. The heroine has been such an idiot (despite repeated warnings from the police detective) that the killer has come to the house of her 64-year-old aunt, with whom she is staying, and attacked the dog (mercifully the only living being in the house). The aunt has just come home from spending all night at the vet's with the dog, the dog is still there, and the heroine realizes that this is her fault. At this point--on the grounds that the [...]

      My first cozy mystery i read i love it!Paige she is so stubborn funny young opera singer who is curiously wants to solve a murder case of Greg Lucas.

      First in a series and a new to me author, this A Glee Club Mystery seems like a Glee TV show spin-off. Paige Marshall is an aspiring Opera singer who has landed home between professional gigs and is currently teaching a high school competitive show choir. The atmosphere is cutthroat among the teaching staff and the students, eventually the pressure blows and someone ends up dead. Paige discovers the body and puts herself squarely in the sights of a killer. Fans of the TV show will pro

      It’s been a while since I’ve read a straight mystery, and it was fun to get back into the genre. The setting of high school show choir was definitely a big plus – I can both relate, and am endlessly amused by the absurdities of that world.The actual mystery is painfully obvious – I figured it out before the halfway point (p. 135) and never wavered from my conviction. But because of the fun setting, fun characters, and Charbonneau’s compelling writing style, I didn’t mind, and enjoyed [...]

      This review was originally posted on my blog on 29th July 2012, hereThe stage is setThis novel was a great read. It was enjoyable and entertaining and gripping and it was honestly just one book that I found myself really liking. It was easy to read and the tension and mystery built throughout it which helped to keep me really interested in what was going on.

      I'm going to divulge a little secret quickly, before I get to the review. I'm a total music junkie. I need to have some sort of music playing at all times, whether it's country, metal, rap, whatever. I listen to it and love it all. But my even bigger secret is that I love musicals. Go ahead, laugh. I can recite, word for word, Grease from beginning to end. Hairspray? Don't even get me started. When I found out my husband had never seen either of those, I almost went into shock and immediately pu [...]

      Review from Backchatting Books"Murder for Choir" is the first in a Glee Club cozy mystery series. Some areas really sparkle while others need a bit more polish. Joelle Charbonneau capitalises on the Glee phenomenon which is something new for the cozy mystery world. Paige Marshall takes a job coaching a high school show choir as her opera singing career has stagnated. The choir gig isn't turning out how she had hoped as some kids and her co-workers don’t think she can cut it as a coach. Things [...]

      Originally posted on Lovey Dovey BooksMurder For Choir is a cozy mystery that exceeded my expectations! I've never quite known what to think about mysteries; I love them but I always worry whether the facts and details will bore me or the suspense will just scare me to pieces. Fortunately, Joelle Charbonneau has captured my attention as a stellar author and made mystery one of my top favorite genres!Paige Marshall is a career performer turned show choir teacher.

      The first in a brand new series, Murder For Choir is not only a fantastically fun plot, but it will also be a fan favorite.

      4.5 starsI have three words for y'all: Show. Choir. Mystery. HOW MUCH COOLER CAN YOU GET? And with Murder for Choir, Joelle Charbonneau delivers one awesome mystery that will keep you trying to work out all the pieces until the last minute.I love a good mystery. My obsession with mysteries began back when I cracked open my first Nancy Drew book and was further fueled by all the Trixie Belden books I read. Since then, I am always looking for the next mystery to read. And I definitely found it wit [...]

      See what our readers had to sayAbby R. "As a fan of Glee (first season) and a lover of fluffy whodunits, I wanted to like this book so badly. And, in theory, it seems like it should be likeable — a charming enough lead, some well-written quirky side characters, show choir shenanigans but despite these elements, I found myself really underwhelmed."

      I like this series about an opera singer who takes a job as a show choir director in a high school. When another director is murdered, she becomes involved in tracking down the killer in order to get a student off the hook.

    19. Connie N. on said:

      What a fun cozy. I really liked the main character--not too crazy, not too cutesie, not too adventurous. She is a young and talented opera singer who has taken a job as show choir teacher "between performances." On her first day of show choir camp, a rival teacher gets murdered, so she becomes involved in the investigation. She is funny without being annoying, and her humor is fun without being overdone. I'll definitely read more by this author.An example of her sense of humor about food: "After [...]

    20. Kirsten on said:

      This was a fun read! It reminded me alot of the Janet Evanovich Stephanie Plum series. Although not quite as outrageously funny, it still was quite fun.First off, Paige is more than a little nosy and a certified go getter. She doesn't like to sit on her duff. At the same time she was endearingly not perfect. She's very easy to relate to since she is a very realistic character. No perfect makeup for her! She's even scared of her aunt's dog, Killer. She doesn't become perfect by the end of the boo [...]

      Paige is stuck in a job she hates, with high school students who aren't too fond of her, when things get even worse. A colleague is found dead, and suddenly everyone is a suspect.I haven't read many of this type of mystery, but I've enjoyed all that I've read. I am wondering, though, if there is some formula somewhere that requires a flaky old aunt/grandmother to encourage the heroine to risk her fool neck by trying to solve a murder? At least in this book, the aunt was less annoying than in som [...]

    23. Jeanne on said:

      Kept me guessing most of the way through, though I did catch the killer before they did. Nice for a fun quick read, though could have done with some editing. Also all of the romance parts of this felt forced and some boarded on creepy. Also, kinda pissed that one of the men wasn't bisexual, just pretending to be gay because female students kept trying to sleep with him. Ugh. Also, teenage girls throwing themselves at men was kind of a theme, which while condoned by the narrator, seemed to happen [...]

    24. Cindy on said:

      First book in this series. Enjoyed reading it and even though it is about a show choir in high school there isn't a lot in this book about it, more about the mystery itself. I enjoyed the characters of Paige and her aunt. The author puts a some sarcastic humor to Paige's thoughts and I really enjoyed it. Even I ended up guessing the bad guy, it was more because I just picked a character and stuck with it as it wasn't easy to figure out for sure who did it. I had read one review that said they th [...]

    25. Susan on said:

      Paige can't get a job in opera or musical theater, so she's reduced to teaching a high school choir class while living with her wealthy aunt. How hard can it be? Well, the choir members are uber-competitive, one of their chief competitors is murdered (and Paige finds the body!), and her boss seems to see her as a possible murderer. Paige can return the compliment there, especially after she finds he's been dating the victim's ex-wife. Then there's the hunky cop who seems very much amused by her [...]

      Paige Marshall has taken a job coaching a show choir until her big break singing opera comes through. But when a rival coach is murdered, she starts trying to clear one of her students of the crime. The book is fun with great characters, fast moving plot, and gentle humor woven in. Paige took a couple more risks than I felt like she should have, but I enjoyed it and definitely plan to read the sequel.My full review at Carstairs Considers.

    27. Clara on said:

      It's a great book if you are into choir and murder mysteries. It keeps you guessing until the very end (which is really the best compliment you can give). It's a great book that is hard to put down once you start. I tried several times, but couldn't because I got very invested in knowing what was going to happen next. I would personally love to see a sequel on this to see how some of the character relationships develop and to know how the choir does for the season.

    28. BeaCharmed on said:

      I'm not sure how well or believably the series can continue but I enjoyed this. It had lots of humor, believable characters, and Paige's bumbling as she investigated was realistic and funny as heck. The killer was one of my suspects but Charbonneau had given us a good mix of suspects and red herrings so it wasn't obvious. Devlyn's secret was, to me anyway, and I am not a fan of love triangles but I'll definitely read more in the series.

    29. Dylan on said:

      This is an amazing, cozy mystery novel and I cannot wait to read the sequel and others to come! Paige and all of the other characters are extremely likable and relate-able , and we have to love Aunt Millie! A very twisting, humorous, cozy, warming, addicting book that is starting out a great new series!! Overall a very good book and start of this exciting new series!!! Simply brilliant!
