is partners in a dance studio with her fiancé, Rafe. The
studio offers a wide range of dances from teen students to elderly
women. But she breaks the engagement when she catches him cheating
on her. She can't afford to bring in a new partner so they must
continue to run the dance studio together. Rafe starts to act strangely.
They quarrel about changes he wants to make in the studio's offerings.
Suddenly Stacy finds Rafe's dead body in the studio. She is accused
of killing him by his lover. Stacy has to fight to save her studio
and prove her innocence.
to this light and amusing mystery, this should appeal to aficionados
of TV"s Dancing With the Stars with its ballroom atmosphere
and its introduction of dance terms and names of dances, and its
sometime instruction of the dances themselves. We receive a glimpse
into the life of a professional dancer from a teaching class and
in participating in dance competitions. This is a quick read...just
the remedy for a boring afternoon.
