Hopi Indians believe it is their duty to dance in order to keep the world in balance. But with the recent Chilean earthquake, our axis has shifted, and our world is now off balance. Maybe Janet Lomayestewa, U.S. Customs tracker, ICE, needs to learn to dance if she is to find a serial killer and restore balance to the Earth, her reservation, and her own off-kilter love life.
I loved the cultural insights into the life of a Hopi between two worlds. It's always good to get perspective of real people who happen to be First Nations. However I was not prepared for the steamy romance which was laid on a bit thick. It would have been a good story were it not for that.

What the author has the heroine do in the first chapter I found disgusting and it didn't get much better after that. Not a believable character. Women don't think that way. It was more like some male's fantasy of what he thinks women are like. Native women in particular don't do some of the things the author had her do or think. A little more research would have been so much better.
