Welcome to Normal where nothing is normal!

Join Mae West and the Laundry Club Ladies as they cha cha and twirl their way around Happy Trails Campground as they put on some sleuthing dance shoes to bring closure to this southern and fun cozy Valentine’s mystery.

When I begged Hank Sharp to take dance lessons to celebrate Valentine’s Day, I knew I was getting more than I had bargained for. But when a dancer’s dead body shows up at the height of the competition and Hank is hired to investigate the murder, I had no idea what we were in store for when he had Dottie Swaggert and Henry Bryant go undercover as a dance competition couple to get insider information.

After a little snooping around, we discovered there were deep running feuds and passions behind those sequins and smiles that gave motive and opportunity to kill for the desires to win the most coveted dancing title.

Time is running out and we fear Dottie’s life is in danger. Let’s face it, she has a hard time keeping her mouth shut. And NO ONE puts Dottie in the corner. (Goodreads)


Get your dancing shoes on and join the Laundry Club Ladies in their latest adventure.  When there is a dance competition, someone kills a dancer and it is up to Mae and her friends to find out who the killer is.  Dottie and Henry go undercover to help figure it out.

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning and took me on a wonderful journey.  The writing style flows smoothly and the writing style flows smoothly.  The mystery was well plotted and there were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider.  I was surprised by who the killer was.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  Whenever you read a book in this series, you know that you are going to be entertained and you are in for a real treat.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.
