A Merry Little Murder
A Lindy Haggerty Mystery #5
October 2004 paperback
October 2003 hard cover
This Christmas, former dancer Lindy Haggerty leaves her toe shoes behind to hit the glitzy International Ballroom Competition in Atlantic City, where it takes two to tango-but only one to kill...
Lindy and company barely have time to unpack before the backbiting begins. Dawn Gilpatrick, owner of a famous dance studio, clues Lindy in to the politics and gossip behind the scenes. Seems a rival studio owned by her ex-husband/ dance partner is trying to steal one of Dawn's top teachers, resulting in a lawsuit for breach of contract by Dawn. If that's not enough, her top couple-Shane Corbett and Katya Andrejewsky-are about to break up, courtesy of Shane, and unbeknownst to Katya.
Lindy's head is spinning more than the dancers are. Scandals and catfights are threatening to upstage the competition. Shane and Katya's sudden disappearance is the last straw for Dawn-professionally and financially. And just when things couldn't possibly get any worse, a body is discovered, washed up under the boardwalk.
Now, it's up to Lindy to take the lead in solving a Christmas mystery…before anyone else dances with death.
