Just in Time by Suzanne Trauth – Blog Tour and Giveaway


Business is humming at Dodie O’Dell’s Windjammer Restaurant, where she offers theme menus connected to the Etonville Little Theatre’s amateur productions. This June, the theatre is collaborating with the neighboring Creston Players to stage Bye Bye Birdie under the stars—their first musical! There’s a contest in the play to pick a fan to receive rock idol Conrad Birdie’s last kiss before he ships off for the Army, so Dodie plans a contest to pick the food for a pre-show picnic.

But before the show opens, Ruby, the rehearsal accompanist, is found dead in her car. Why would anyone murder the crusty old gal who loved to sneak a smoke and a nip between wisecracks? Once again, the resourceful restaurant manager must play the part of amateur sleuth, accompanied by Police Chief Bill Thompson, who also happens to be her beau. Confronted with a chorusof suspects, she’ll need to stay composed to catch the killer—or it’ll be bye bye Dodie…

In Just in Time, Dodie O’dell and her police chief boyfriend, Bill, have to find the killer of the amateur theater’s piano accompanist. Dodie still has to find time to keep her restaurant running while investigating and the restaurant staff adds some colorful characters to the story.

Full of clues and misdirection, this is a quick entertaining read. Just in Time is the 4th book in the Dodie O’Dell Mystery series, but the first I had read, and it can certainly stand on its own.

  1. Nice post and review Erika. It is always nice to know if you can read it as a stand alone when it is not the first in a series. Can’t enter the giveaway, but I still want to read this one. I love local theatre so this cozy should be just up my alley.
