Invited to stage a mystery night for the annual antebellum house tour of the Historical Preservation Society of Chastain, South Carolina, Annie Laurance instead finds herself the leading lady in a flesh-and-blood drama. The play’s the thing when the curtain falls on grande dame Corinne Webster. While jeweled fingers point, accusing Annie of murder, the perpetrator lurks among the cast and the murder weapon is one of the props. Within the tight-laced society of Chastain, Annie is guilty until proven innocent. With her fiance, Max Darling, Annie pieces together evidence to clear her name—until the chief witness is murdered. Now it will take all of her sleuthing skills to discover the evil in the heart of Chastain.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill | 6/8/2017

    " I would listen to everything by this author in a heartbeat. I wish there were more titles to choose from. I spend a lot of time listening to audiobooks and I would recommend using the audiobook store to any of my friends! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jamie | 2/20/2014

    " I didn't realize these books were written in the 1980's...not that that should matter, but I'm not digging these mysteries. Proud to say I didn't give up on it, but I hate reading a book I really didn't like either. Annie is too implusive to be going around trying to clear her name, and really....why is she accused off the bat the last two books? Is every book in this series going to find Annie Lawrence the scapegoat? Will she be accused every time someone is murdered just because she happens to be around? The first book was ok, but this one was a little too unrealistic for me. I will give this series one more try and read the 3rd book... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen Thompson | 2/12/2014

    " These are quick, enjoyable reads. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 krin | 2/9/2014

    " This was a good mystery featuring bookstore owner Annie Laurence and her fiance Max Darling. There were lots of suspects and clues which Annie and Max had to sift through to find the killer. I liked the references to other mystery authors and stories sprinkled throughout the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy Meyerhoff | 2/2/2014

    " A bit long and convoluted. I enjoyed Annie and Max. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicky Beltz | 1/29/2014

    " Cozy murder mysteries set out of a bookstore "Death On Demand." "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Miss Trixie | 1/19/2014

    " It seems like 75% of this is a bibliography of mystery novels, which, in moderation, may be a fun and reasonable filler for a series centered around a mystery bookstore owner but the author goes overboard. Are all the entries in this series so heavy on lists of authors and titles? The victim is obvious from page one although the murder does not occur til halfway through the story. The muderer isn't much of a surprise either. Didn't make me want to read any more of this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chaun | 1/18/2014

    " I didn't enjoy this book as much as I did the first in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara Cooper | 1/6/2014

    " Another great book. Annie and Max's ongoing courtship spiced by murder made for a read that I couldn't put down! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 12/26/2013

    " Great book, really! I like the change of scenery and will read book 3 if I can find it at the library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxann | 12/9/2013

    " Good solid mystery, but not a good as the first book in the series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clarissa | 11/25/2013

    " Figured it out too soon, but a fun read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Debbe | 11/6/2013

    " I like her Henry O series but not the Death on Demand series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 9/2/2013

    " I am really enjoying these. Good plots, characters I care about. A comforting read that doesn't insult the intelligence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosalee Land | 8/20/2013

    " A great sequel to the first book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 7/18/2013

    " This was great fun-a mystery within a mystery. Loved the main character and the central conceit of the series premise. I can't believe I've never read anything by this author before! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 2/18/2013

    " This series is not as good as I remembered, but it matched the level of brain-cell activity I had this week. Fun characters but kind of a flat story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 1/29/2013

    " I really enjoyed the intrigue and family dysfunction portrayed in this cozy mystery, even if at times the premise was a little far-fetched. All in all, I enjoyed the book and will look to read more by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol MacInnis | 12/31/2012

    " A very nail biting mystery into the 'whodunit' with Annie Laurance as the accused. Just when you think you've got it figured out, another turn of the page and another wrench into the mystery. A good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Carter | 11/25/2012

    " It was interesting to go back to Book 2 in the "Death on Demand" series after all of the books I have read in the series. I really liked this book and loved the town where it was set. It was a very good story, and the murder mystery that was acted out was a fun added touch. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon Goss | 11/8/2012

    " Easy read. Mystery, relationships, and comedy in one book. Read series in order to understand characters and relationships better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 7/26/2012

    " Wonderful mystery. Carolyn Hart has a true gift for keeping the reader guessing, and an extensive vocabulary to keep the descriptions of characters and scenes fresh. Hope the rest are like this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebekah | 7/9/2012

    " I love this series. This is my "book to read on the bus" at the moment. Something fun I don't have to think too hard about. So far, so good. More when I've finished. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 6/21/2012

    " I thought this was okay. 2nd book in this new series. I'll keep reading. "
