Remember back a few weeks, when I mentioned I’d be hosting Phyllis Zimbler Miller for a second turn in the spotlight? Well, here we go!
The song “All the Right Moves” by One Republic makes me think of my cozy mystery CAST THE FIRST STONE: A REBECCA STONE MYSTERY because of the theme of competition that runs throughout the book. These lyrics from the song capture this:
“All the right friends in all the right places
“So yeah, we’re going down
“All the right moves in all the right faces
“So yeah, we’re going down.”
In the story Los Angeles business reporter Rebecca Stone must finally face the fellow Wharton student who broke off their engagement in order for him to focus on making it big on Wall Street. The following words from the song are similar to the thoughts that have plagued Rebecca since then:
“Do you think I’m special?
“Do you think I’m nice?
“Am I bright enough to shine in your spaces?”
Now Rebecca may finally get the answer to these questions.
Ready for the blurb? Here you go…
Cozy mystery CAST THE FIRST STONE introduces shomer Shabbat Los Angeles business reporter Rebecca Stone:

You know, I may need to present this to my book club… Hmm….
