Visiting a psychic is outside the norm for Ellison Russell. Finding bodies is not. Unfortunately, the psychic’s crystal ball says she’ll soon be surrounded by death. Again.


Now there’s a corpse in the front drive, a witchy neighbor ready to turn Ellison and her (not so) little dog into toadstools, and a stripper named Starry Knight occupying the guest room.

How did 1975 go so wrong so quickly?

Ellison must handle Mother (who’s found a body of her own), make up with a certain handsome detective, and catch a killer, or the death surrounding her might be her own.

Guest Post

I cannot tell you how many times I’ve been asked, why did you set the Country Club Murders in the 70s? The number of times I’ve heard that question exceeds my fingers and toes and math skills.

Despite harvest gold and avocado green, despite shag carpets, despite plaid pants, white shoes with suits, and socks with toes, I remember the 70s fondly.

In the mid-70s, when I had yet to hit double-digits in age, life was simple. And fun. Neighborhood games of kick-the-can, chasing fireflies, hanging out at the pool—that was summer. No cell phones. No video games. No social media.

I exploded out of the house in the morning, played with friends, floated from backyard to backyard, and ate the lunchtime bologna sandwich wherever I happened to be.

My mother never worried

A simpler time.

Is it any wonder I see the 70s through rose-colored glasses?

Ellison Russell’s 70s aren’t as rosy as mine. Mainly because she finds bodies nearly everywhere she goes.

And, Ellison must deal with social issues, women’s issues, and her mother. All that tends to leach the rose right out of the glass.

In Shadow Dancing, Ellison must deal with death (she should be used to it by now), human trafficking, and family drama. Oh, there’s also her relationship with a certain detective, the stripper in her guest room, and a psychic with a message from the beyond.

Maybe the 70s weren’t simpler after all…
