 Synopsis:
 
Murder is nothing to tap at. . . The high-kicking Happy Hoofers--Tina, Janice, Pat, Mary Louise, and Gini--have been booked to flaunt their fabulous flamenco footwork on a luxury train ride through northern Spain. But when a blowhard talk show host is found deader than four-day-old flan--with Gini as suspect numero uno--the feisty friends waste no time stepping into their sleuthing shoes to protect one of their own. The dynamite dancers will have to step up their game before a clever killer brings the curtain down on one of them . . . for good!  
Includes Photo Tips And Tasty Recipes

My Thoughts:

In this book we follow the Happy Hoofers as they are on a trip around Spain unfortunately the guy they are traveling with a talk show host who is a real jerk winds up dead and before he's dead he's made quite a few enemies including Gini a Happy Hoffer.  Who had the most to kill the talk show host was it a disgruntle worker who had been blacklisted due to him?  Or was it a Happy Hoofer who had finally had enough and snapped?  Or was it an obsessed fan?  Maybe even a female he was dating who had enough of being his girlfriend and wanted more?

I loved this book and reading about the great recipes included in the story.  This book was full of adventure and mystery and had pulled me in and wouldn't let go!
