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!

Review: I think I've fallen in love with this series! No joke, how can you not love a cozy series with a group of dancers called the Happy Hoofers? Its impossible, I tell you. This is the second book in the series, so I only have to go back and read one book. Yay!

Oh and the cover is the cutest thing. (Just had to mention that)

I saw this story as a cozy modern spin on Murder On The Orient Express. It is a fast paced fun read, that you really won't want to miss! It is told from the point of view of Gini, a rather outspoken member of the troop.

I have to say, if you have conservative leanings, you might not enjoy this book as much. Bless her bleeding heart liberal heart. I found Shambless to remind me a bit of Newt Gingrich. He's the same kind of hateful blowhard.

I loved how Gini told him off at the restaurant, because he really was a vile pig.

The story really focused on Gini, Mary-Louise and Janice. The later two women had love interests o the trip, Janice kind of had two and the one really kept them in the thick of the investigation. Gini, really isn't quite suspect numero uno as the blurb would suggest though, but she sure helps the investigation move along.

I really enjoyed the story and the recipes included, though most are a bit too intricate for my cooking abilities.
