Publisher Description

The show must go on . . . 

When mystery bookstore owner Annie Laurance is invited to stage a Mystery Night for the annual antebellum house tour of the Historical Preservation Society of Chastain, South Carolina, she instead finds herself the leading lady in a flesh-and-blood drama. The play's the thing wherein the curtain falls on mean-spirited grande dame Corinne Webster. While jeweled fingers point, accusing Annie of murder, the perpetrator lurks within the genteel cast of Murder-Most-Make-Believe . . . and the murder weapon is one of the props.

In 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 her chief witness is murdered. Now it will take all her sleuthing skills to discover the evil in the heart of Chastain's Beautiful People.

Customer Reviews

Mobius24 ,

Design For Murder needs some redesigning work.

Overall the book was pretty enjoyable. I did not guess the killer in the first three chapters in fact I never had a clue. My quibble is a couple of times the doctor got a name change. He was John Sanford then he was Robert Sanford and then he became John Sanford again. Carolyn Hart needs better proof readers because someone is not paying attention.
My other problem is Annie. Why is she so mad all the time? I hope she toned her down in future books or I can not imagine reading very many.
Otherwise Design For Murder is a very good mystery.
