Synopsis
There’s no pussy-footing around murder . . .
It’s never too late to kick up your heels. Just ask Tina, Janice, Pat, Mary Louise, and Gini–aka the Happy Hoofers. After posting a video of their tap-dancing routine on the Internet, the leggy ladies find themselves booked to perform on a Russian river cruise up the Volga from Moscow to St. Petersburg.
But when murder cuts in, the five fabulous friends find it’s not so easy to tap their troubles away. A crew member has been killed, and a passenger is missing. With a killer on board, the Hoofers need to watch their step. But with a little fancy footwork, these soft-shoe sleuths may get a leg up on a killer who’s cruising for a bruising. . .
Includes Travel Tips And Tasty Recipes

My Review:

I really enjoyed reading about the Happy Hoofers trip on a Russian River Cruise.  This is a type of cruise I would never have thought of taking and after the Hoofer's experience I am pretty sure I wouldn't want to take it either.  Besides the cruise being nothing like they had expected, there is a murder to complicate things further.  Then one of the Hoofers life is threatened, not once, but twice.  This book had a lot of action.  I learned a lot about Russia that I never knew before.  The Happy Hoofers are a group of 50 something friends, Tina, Mary Louise, Janice, Gini, and Pat who love to tap dance, and even though I am in my thirties, I could relate to the Happy Hoofers. 

Great job Mary.  I look forward to the next installment in the Happy Hoofers Mystery which is entitled Flamenco, Flan, and Fatalities

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
