Murder is nothing to tap at. . .

The high-kicking Happy Hoofers–Tina, Janice, Pat, Mary Louise, and Gini–have been booked to flaunt their fabulous flamenco footwork on a luxury train ride through northern Spain. But when a blowhard talk show host is found deader than four-day-old flan–with Gini as suspect numero uno–the feisty friends waste no time stepping into their sleuthing shoes to protect one of their own.

The dynamite dancers will have to step up their game before a clever killer brings the curtain down on one of them . . . for good!

Includes Photo Tips And Tasty Recipes


My thoughts:

This is a first time read for me by this author and I adored her book.  This is the second book in the A Happy Hoofers series.  I did not feel like I was left out of anything.  I understand this can be read as a stand alone and I believe it.  The characters are a hoot now it was a bit slow going for me in the beginning then picked up.  Gini is on a train ride and theaters to kill the a Talk show host.  Things start to rev up then.

I like the characters are older they are in the 50 range and being 45 I can relate.  I would love to have a group of girls I could go travel around the world with.

The author does a great job with everything and I look forward to the next book and going back to read the first one.
