Fans of Louise Penny will love the Emily Kincaid mysteries by Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli!

"Every woman who's ever struggled with saying no, fitting in, and balancing independence against loneliness will adore first-timer Emily." --Kirkus Reviews

Following an ugly divorce and the death of her father, Emily Kincaid decides what she needs most is peace and quiet and time to think, so the part-time journalist and full-time struggling mystery writer relocates to a remote house in the woods of northern Michigan. When a severed head shows up in her garbage can, Emily knows she's been singled out, and suddenly her peaceful solitude feels a lot like isolation and vulnerability.

Discovering that the victim was a member of the Women of the Moon, a group of older local ladies who sing and dance around a bonfire in the woods late at night, Emily's at a loss to know why anyone would want to hurt one of them. The women claim it's a harmless act in praise of Mother Earth, a way to feel young again, but certain townspeople don't see it that way. As Emily digs deeper, more of the women are turning up dead.

Knowing she'll have to root out a killer to save her peaceful paradise, Emily teams up with the cantankerous Deputy Dolly and begins navigating between eccentric town gossips and reclusive neighbors who would rather be left alone. When the killer gets too close for comfort, Emily knows she'll have to put aside her fears before the natural life she's chosen comes to a grisly and very unnatural end.

DEAD DANCING WOMEN (EMILY KINCAID MYSTERIES, BK 1) by ELIZABETH KANE BUZZELLI Emily Kincaid moved to Northern Michigan several years ago. She needs to put an ugly divorce and her father's death behind her. Working as a part-time journalist and a not so well known mystery writer keeps her fairly busy. When a woman's severed head appears in her trash can, and later an arm and hand appear on her front porch she wonders who has it out for her. Is this a warning of some kind? And who would want to do anything like this to her? When the deceased woman is identified as one of the Women of the Moon, Emily and Deputy Dolly decide to help each other solve the mystery. But when more of the Women of the Moon turn of dead, one has to wonder ... what do the remaining members know that no one else does? Being a cozy mystery, I wasn't expecting it to be as suspenseful as it was. The characters of this small town are at times, funny, quirky, secretive, and just odd. But they all kind of grow on you. This was a fast, entertaining read. I have no problem recommending this one to anyone who likes cozies. Many thanks to the author / Beyond The Page Publishing / NetGalley who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

I ordered this book for my NOOK, and unfortunately I have not been able to read it yet because the copy I got is completely screwed up. I have repeatedly emailed NOOK support, but the only "support" I have gotten from them is things I have already tried, such as archiving and unarchiving, with no resolution in my problem whatsoever. Of course, despite the fact that it is not my software or device, I have been repeatedly told I was the one that screwed up. I did have one favorable response from customer service stating that the person had contacted the people responsible for the formatting of the book and the problem would be fixed in one to two weeks - that was more than a month ago, so I am assuming that was just a lie to shut me up. Of course, being a NOOK book, I cannot get a refund. I have read other books in this series and loved them, so I am assuming this one will be good too. If you want to read this book I highly recommend you buy the actual book and not the NOOK version unless you just want to waste $8.99.
