Alexis Peterson, a soap opera star, left her last job with a daytime soap because she, at one point, was being considered as the person responsible for a murder. Not able to work with those who thought she was guilty, she moves on. Now with another soap, she literally has a dead body fall out of the overhead lights at an Emmy ceremony. Though not a suspect this time, she still feels compelled to help in the investigation.

Why not? Where would the story be if she didn't? More bodies surface and Alex finds that not only is she helping to discover who is murdering young wannabe actors, but she also has a more personal investment in the case. The detective assigned to it seems to have affected her heart.

Eileen Davidson's Dial Emmy for Murder gives readers a peek at backstage television and the ins and outs of its daily work. And work it is. Eighteen hour days when necessary! Davidson is a soap star herself, so she knows of what she speaks and she speaks it well. It's easy to get into this cozy. It's also easy to enjoy it. Author Carolyn Hart proclaims it sheer fun, and I concur.
