Prospect Glen High School’s show choir team, Music in Motion, and their coach, Paige Marshall, are headed to Nashville to compete in the National Show Choir Championship. The team has a very good chance of winning. Being the new team on the block, they are given the smallest rehearsal room. All the costumes and band instruments are living in Paige’s hotel room until they can be loaded into the rehearsal room. This will be done as soon as the stage left loading door can be fixed.

After Paige and her Aunt Millie go shopping to pick up a few things to spruce up the band uniforms, she remembers that someone wants to meet her at 9:00 PM at the performing arts center. Since she is with Millie, Paige figures it is safe to go. When no one shows, the ladies decide to leave and they are almost hit by a speeding car. They go to where the car came from and see a pair of red cowboy boots attached to a dead body. Paige had better be careful solving this murder, or she could end up losing her perfect pitch.

Things to ponder: Why does LuAnn have it in for Paige? Could Chessie be involved with sabotaging the other teams? Who called Paige to meet at the performing arts center? Will Paige make the flight to Chicago?

Joelle Charbonneau has done it again. A Chorus Lineup is a great addition to the Glee Club Mystery series. While they are on a road trip this time, our favorite characters have come along for the ride. I found it hard to put this book down – I had to find out whodunit. The author has created another intriguing plot that included plenty of suspects and lots of questions that needed to be answered. This book left me wishing for encores. So if you like your mystery with a little harmonizing, then you should be reading A Chorus Lineup.
