Description:

A killer is calling, and Ellison’s life is on the line.

Ellison Russell is planning the event of the season—and she’s stressed. Why not yoga?

Because the yoga instructor gets murdered during class—and Ellison’s stress level rises exponentially. Now, in addition to raising a ridiculous amount of money, she’s babysitting a deranged cat (named after the devil himself), taking ten million phone calls (most of them from Mother), and finding more bodies (they’re popping up like dandelions after a spring rain).

There’s no such thing as balance when the killer makes it personal. Can Ellison catch a murderer or will her next namaste be her last?

My Thoughts:

In this book Ellison is getting ready for the gala which will be the event of the year.  While taking a yoga class to calm her nerves Ellison and her friends get locked into the yoga studio and when they finally get out they find their instructor has been murdered.

Ellison's mother is determined that the gala raise as much as gala's in New York or California.  Which makes Ellison work hard to raise the money while also trying to figure out who killed the yoga instructor.  But with Ellison nothing is quite what it seams and more bodies turn up and Ellison even has to go to her dead husband's drawer of secrets to try to figure out what happened!  Who killed the yoga instructor and why?

I love Ellison she's fiery and won't give up until she solves the murder.  This one also dealt with issues women and girls deal with in a time when women's roles were alot different.  But it was captivating to see how Ellison handled these things and we get to see her relationship with Grace grow.    Anarchy Jones the detective is back with Ellison and this time he needs her help to solve this crime because sometimes people still talk with friends more than with the police.  Definitely a great story and series to keep up with!
