Review: Shadow Dancing by: Julie Mulhern

Title: Shadow Dancing
Author: Julie Mulhern
Publisher: Henery Press
Series: The Country Club Murders #7

Description:

Visiting a psychic is outside the norm for Ellison Russell. Finding bodies is not. Unfortunately, the psychic's crystal ball says she'll soon be surrounded by death. Again. Drat. Now there's a corpse in the front drive, a witchy neighbor ready to turn Ellison and her (not so) little dog into toadstools, and a stripper named Starry Knight occupying the guest room. 

How did 1975 go so wrong so quickly? Ellison must handle Mother (who's found a body of her own), make up with a certain handsome detective, and catch a killer, or the death surrounding her might be her own. 

My Thoughts: 

Ellison Russell should have known her life would go downhill when she went to a psychic with her friend.  What she didn't count on was how wrong it would go from teenage prostitutes to her parents having issues to having Det. Jones back in her life.  Will Ellison ever have a quiet day in her life?  Will she figure out what Starry Knight knows or who killed another prostitute?  

This book had everything from teen angst lots of that to of getting Det. Jones off her radar as they have recently split.  Will Ellison ever find the one or is she destined to be alone which is fine by her, but it won't keep her bed warm at night.

I really enjoyed this book and have everyone ever since.  Ellison handles things with only the style she can.  She also does it proving that women even back then could do more than keep home and have parties!
