Set at the end of the Roaring Twenties, Rumer Haven's Coattails and Cocktails is a murder mystery in the vein of Agatha Christie with multiple suspects and a read herring or two. The author weaves a plot that keeps the reader guessing and questions character's motives. Actress Lottie Landry's romance with co-star Noble raises objections from former guardian, Ransom. His wife is suspicious. Undertones and relationships among the characters provide conflict and tension. For a quick entertaining read I recommend Coattails and Cocktails.
