Publisher's Summary

It takes two to tango - but only one to murder.

Discovering she has two left feet isn’t the biggest problem for Laurel McKay when she agrees to learn a fox-trot routine for her best friend’s Lake Tahoe wedding. Stumbling over the lifeless body of a sexy Russian dance star with her broken shoe heel stuffed in his mouth…is far worse. Almost as bad as running into the hunky detective she dated briefly before he disappeared from her life.

When another death occurs on the ballroom floor, Laurel finds herself waltzing her way into the dark secrets of the Golden Hills Dance Studio. Navigating kids, career, wedding planning, and murder requires some fancy footwork. Can Laurel tango with a killer and stay alive?

It deserves 3 and half stars

The second book in the Laurel McKay mystery series was okay. Laurel gets involved in a mystery at the behest of her boss. The story line is a bit unbelievable and the ending had me rolling my eyes at Laurel's decisions. All in all I like the supporting characters. They kept the story realistic. I will probably get the next book in the series.

Good, But...

I like the story, but got a little tired of her stupidity. She is just too jumpy and clumsy for amusement or reality or someone investigating murder.

Two left feet and a murder investigation

I really enjoyed this book. The story had so many things going on at once that it is hard to stop listening too, don't get me wrong it isn't confusing and everything is nicely connected. I love the family drama and wedding preparations but it was the mystery that I really liked. It is all set in or around a dance studio that works well for the wedding theme and despite never having an interest in ballroom dancing or even watching dancing on tv, I was hooked and it was easy to imagine because it was so well described without being over the top of technical. With so many suspects it kept me guessing and I never did come up with the motive until near the very end. This is proving to be a fun series both for the mystery and humour and I look forward to starting the next book.
Laurel best friend is getting married and Laurel.would do anything to make her friend happy except maybe learn the foxtrot. Even with dance lessons the dream to have all the wedding party participants dancing at the end seems a nightmare. Especially when Laurel finds one of the dance instructors dead with her shoes heel stuck in his mouth. Rather than be the number one suspect, the police focus in on her boss and his wife. Could the president of the bank really be responsible? And if he was why would he ask Laurel to investigate the murder and clear his and his wife's name? With the wedding fast approaching Laurel will have her work cut out for her learning the steps and maybe just maybe trying to solve a murder. Then another one of the dancers is killed and it seems like it's murder on the dance floor. Could the motive be money and the up coming dance competition that is happening at the same place as the wedding?
I liked the narrator, she really helped to bring the story to life with some great voices.
