Can't Wait Wednesday: Last Night at the Hollywood Canteen

Last Night at the Hollywood Canteen by Sarah James

Pub. Date: November 7, 2023




Goodreads says, "Perhaps the best place in 1943 Hollywood to see the stars is the Hollywood Canteen, a club for servicemen staffed exclusively by those in show business. Murder mystery playwright Annie Laurence, new in town after a devastating breakup, definitely hopes to rub elbows with the right stars. Maybe then she can get her movie made. But Hollywood proves to be more than tinsel and glamour. When despised film critic Fiona Farris is found dead in the Canteen kitchen, Annie realizes any one of the Canteen's luminous volunteers could be guilty of the crime. To catch the killer, Annie falls in with Fiona's friends, a bitter and cynical group―each as uniquely unhappy in their life and career as Annie is in hers―that call themselves the Ambassador's Club.Solving a murder in real life, it turns out, is a lot harder than writing one for the stage. And by involving herself in the secrets and lies of the Ambassador's Club, Annie just might have put a target on her own back."


Who wants to think about fall right now? I certainly do not, but all the fall titles are starting to be announced. When I heard about this one, I knew I had to add it to my TBR list. Who doesn't love a good historical fiction + mystery? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
