Description
First in a delicious series: Five friends and dancers on a Russian river cruise discover it takes legwork to solve a murder.

It's never too late to kick up your heels. Just ask Tina, Janice, Pat, Mary Louise, and Gini—a.k.a. 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 lavish 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. The chef has been killed (the food was lousy, but come on), and a passenger has gone 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 murderer who's cruising for a bruising.

Includes travel tips and tasty recipes!

        November 1, 2014

        With four of her other fiftysomething friends, travel magazine columnist Tina Powell started a tap-dancing troupe that became an Internet sensation. As a result, the Happy Hoofers are hired as entertainment for a cruise on the Volga River, sailing from Moscow to St. Petersburg. On the cruise's second night a corpse is found in the river near where the boat is docked. Is it the unscrupulous British chef who didn't know how to cook? Is it the innocent American young man traveling solo? And who could possibly have developed such animosity toward their fellow passengers in just two days? VERDICT Featuring travel tips from Tina (as chapter headings) and recipes, this series debut by the author of Cape Cod Murder and How Not To Act Like a Little Old Lady features plenty of cozy adventure for armchair travelers and mystery buffs alike. Sue Henry and Peter Abresch fans will be delighted with this alternative.
