Marvelous Mambo into Mayhem!

by MaryBethWrites on Nov 26, 2011

Laurel McKay--single mom, mortgage underwriter and occasional murder suspect--returns to the mystery page in ?Dying for a Dance,? a new release by author Cindy Sample. This time she?s taking ballroom dance lessons in preparation for an old friend?s wedding. Being Laurel, she simply must find a dead body and put herself into the middle of a murder investigation! Joining Laurel in her adventures are her family and friends, her coworkers at Hangtown Bank and a studio full of intriguing dance instructors. Oh, and let?s not forget Tom Hunter, the handsome detective who nearly charged her with murder in her last outing. Laurel is checking out murder suspects all over El Dorado County, California as she tries to assist the police with their investigation. Author Sample has struck gold again with this romantic mystery. Her use of the areas in and around Placerville (Old Hangtown), all the way up the hill to South Lake Tahoe will carry the reader into the a winter wonderland of Foothills mystery. Even more than in ?Dying for a Date,? her first novel, Sample has woven a sassy yet frightening tale. Her plot details are carefully placed and bring the reader along for the adventure without spoiling the mystery. The action moves faster than a quickstep and with all the spice of a red-hot rumba. A lot of the fun comes from being privy to Laurel?s thoughts as she faces her own Bridezilla of a friend and tries to learn to foxtrot. She must deal with the budding romance between her mother and the newly-retired detective who nearly put Laurel away in ?Date,? Tom Hunter?s former partner. Then there?s the nasty little detail that her silver dancing shoe was the murder weapon. Poor Laurel! Nothing seems to come easily for her, not even serving as her best friend?s matron of honor. When her boss?s wife comes under suspicion, she must step up the pace of her detecting to save them all. ?Dying for a Dance? is available in both soft-cover and e-book formats. If you like intriguing mysteries, light romance, saucy characters and authentic locales, you?ll enjoy the well-written ?Dying for a Dance.? This review is based on a review copy provided by the author. No restrictions were placed upon the content.
