This is the second book in the Theater Cop series by J.A. Hennrikus aka Julia Henry of the Garden Squad series. I really enjoyed the first book in this series when it came out last year and the idea of a retired police officer working as a theater manager. Sully quickly became someone that I would definitely want to be friends with. Somehow even though she’s not on the force, she manages to find herself near a murder investigation. Once a cop, always a cop? At least in her heart maybe.
My Goodreads review:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When Sully Sullivan decided to help out her friend Dimitri at a theater in Boston, she had no idea she’d be getting herself into more investigating as well as running into her old police partner, Toni. She and her cousin Emma Whitehall were investigating her ex-husband Gus’s disappearance. There were two murders, and a lot of people had a lot of secrets. I hadn’t guessed who the killer was, and the showdown with the person was a bit nerve-wracking.
I’ve really grown to like and admire Sully even more after this book. She’s an amazing and loyal friend who would give her friends just about anything without thinking twice about it. That also included doing anything for her friends. The character of Emma was introduced in the first book, and this time she got to go on sleuthing expeditions with Sully, since she luckily wasn’t a murder suspect. Dimitri is such a hoot! He’s definitely a multi-faceted character. He can be sweet and mild or go on a yelling spree at the theater, but when it’s all said and done, he’s one of Sully’s best friends as is her cousin Eric. I’m anxious to see where Sully’s next adventure will take her, since this one was in Boston and away from her home theater.
