Treble at the Jam Fest by Leslie Budewitz

Cozy Mystery 4th in Series 
Midnight Ink (June 8, 2017) 
Paperback: 288 pages ISBN-13: 978-0738752402 

Erin Murphy, manager of Murphy’s Mercantile (aka the Merc), is tuning up for Jewel Bay’s annual Jazz Festival. Between keeping the Merc’s shelves stocked with Montana’s tastiest local fare and hosting the festival’s kick-off concert, Erin has her hands full.
Discord erupts when jazz guitarist Gerry Martin is found dead on the rocks above the Jewel River. The one-time international sensation had fallen out of sync with festival organizers, students, and performers. Was his death an accident—or did someone even the score?
Despite the warning signs to not get involved, Erin investigates. And when the killer attacks, she orchestrates her efforts into one last crescendo, hoping to avoid a deadly finale.

Some people know what they are good at, some know their deepest passions and interests and some follow in the path chosen for them by their family.
In a small town, it seems like everyone knows each others' business, but far too often, there are secrets being kept. Sometimes from those you believe are closest to you!

There is a lot going on in Jewel Bay, Montana as the annual Jazz Fest and workshops take over the town. With an abrupt and disturbing change of schedule to the events, Erin Murphy can't hide her attempts to get to the bottom of things. It seems everyone expects her to be smack in the middle.
I may have understood all the details better if I had read the previous books in this series but I understood enough. To make things more complicated for Erin, most of her suspects are people she knows and has trusted.

There is a LOT going on in this book, with the festival and various personal relationships.
Changes are on the horizon in every aspect of this book and emotions are raw.
Settle in for a cozy read but be prepared to want to read the next book to find out what happens next.
