Someone’s trying to frame this ambitious theater performer for murder. Can she get back to her adoring public and escape the noose?

And with her recently deceased husband’s will demanding she leave her celebrity behind and refurbish her namesake hotel in Colorado, the distressed actress is forced to board a westbound train. But she’s barely arrived at the haunted, broken-down lodge when the town beauty shows up dead in one of the rooms… and Arabella is named the prime suspect.
Already feeling the sting of the community’s disapproval, she grits her teeth and works with a mischievous cryptic ghost to help prove her innocence. But with blood-stained evidence, handsome sheriffs, and libelous journalists turning her investigation into a dangerous drama, this determined thespian fears she’s missed her cue for survival.
Can she shine the spotlight on a killer before more than her reputation dies a horrible death?
