Description
"Cozy adventure for mystery buffs." —Library Journal
Murder's a showstopper...
The fancy-footed Happy Hoofers—Tina, Janice, Pat, Mary Louise, and Gini— are kicking off Carnival by entertaining posh guests at the most elegant hotel in Rio de Janeiro. Stunning beaches and spectacular views abound. But the party is cut short for the fab five when their alluring Brazilian companion is found dead in her room, without a clue as to what killed her.
As the samba-loving sleuths sift the evidence, they realize that even in beautiful Rio, murder can set the stage—and steal the show...
Includes Travel Tips And Tasty Recipes
