    I had found out that unfortunately, this is the last book in the series, but the very sweet ending makes up for that! Midori was trying to work on two mysteries. One was the theft of her best friend JT's recording equipment and the other was the murder of one of the young composers competition. There were quite a few prospective suspects and at first I had no idea, then towards the end I started putting things together and guessed--but I was almost thrown off the trail because of a clever red he I had found out that unfortunately, this is the last book in the series, but the very sweet ending makes up for that!

I really enjoyed this whole trilogy!

    A really satisfying ending to the trilogy and probably my favorite of the three.

    This was another enjoyable read, and I'm so sad there are only three Midori books! However, they are a solid trilogy and I can't wait for everyone to have fun finding out what Midori gets herself into in the finale to the Music Lover's Mystery series!

Rated 2.5 of 5 I've come to really enjoy mysteries and I've long looked forward to reading books that have a connection to music, and so Sarah Fox's Deadly Overtures: A Music Lover's Mystery appealed to me right from the start. But while I have found that I like mysteries, I have also discovered that I am not a big fan of the cozy mystery and this quite possibly qualifies as a cozy mystery. While the subject is murder, Fox writes with a gentleness that eases the reader into the story - a cozy attribute. This is not a bad thing if you are a fan of 'cozies' - but if you want a little more grit and grist in your fictional murders (as I do) then this is maybe not quite right for you. Three classical music composers are competing for a prize being awarded by a local philharmonic (in Canada). Not surprisingly, the egos are just as impressive as the musical talent. Also not surprisingly, the contestants are familiar with one another and there is some strong rivalry at work. When one of the contestants is found dead at the concert hall, violinist Midori Bishop takes on her own investigation. Author Sarah Fox does a nice job of weaving the story around the music, though music itself isn't really key to the mystery (you could substitute nearly any art form and artist for the music and musicians here). Still, it was a delightful read and a pleasant way to spend a few afternoons. Looking for a good book? While this isn't high on my recommendations list, if you enjoy cozy mysteries and are looking for a music theme, Deadly Overtures by Sarah Fox works fine. I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher, through Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.

    I do like these Sarah Fox mysteries, primarily because I’m an amateur musician. The one problem with them, just like the problem with any murder mystery series in a small area, are that the amount of murders seem a little excessive! I mean, if there were that many non-connected murders in your small business, you’d probably change jobs! But the main character, Midori, is very believable, even though most of the book is a little predictable.

This one takes place during a composer’s competition, which is a good locale for competitiveness and possible grudges being carried through! Hopefully you’re social distancing, but it’s a good “beach read.”

    Loved this third book in the series (and I think final book ☹️)! There is a competition going on for composers in this book. One of the four finalists is murdered. Midori gets involved investigating after Elena becomes a suspect and Hans asks for her help. Another finalist is murdered and Midori must find out what's going on before she's killed. Loved the ending between JT and Midori! This was such a great series with fun characters! Loved this third book in the series (and I think final book ☹️)!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The main character overhears a lot and does a great deal if snooping; Not very realistic. And really, Midori figured out the identity of the killer just seconds before he attempted to kill her? This was too far fetched. Does this imply that just because one plays 2nd violin one can blend in and be practically invisible to the world?
