Overview

What if your dance partner, business partner, and fiancé was stepping out with another woman? That's exactly what happens to Stacy Graysin, who shares ownership of a ballroom dance studio with the man who broke her heart, Rafe Acosta.

But when Stacy discovers Rafe's dead body in the studio one dark night, the police suspect her of killing him. To clear her name and save her studio, Stacey teams up with Rafe's estranged cousin from Argentina, Tav, to find the real killer. And if Stacy doesn't watch her step, the killer may make this dance her last.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Stacy Graysin's dream of a successful dance career glides precariously near the edge when her ex-fiancé, the handsome Rafe, is shot dead in their ballroom studio. Rafe had his share of enemies, but Stacy (and the police) can't quite agree on a motive. When Rafe's dashing Argentinean half-brother shows up to claim ownership of his half of the studio, Stacy digs in to save her livelihood, and her life. Concurrently, dance competitions—described in wonderful detail—provide quite a backdrop for a zany supporting cast of dance instructors, a lovesick teen couple, a dancing congresswoman, a no-nonsense detective, and the Argentinean embassy. VERDICT Perfect for all your dance show fans. Barrick brings a light step and upbeat tempo to her debut. Readers will like the adjacency to the greater DC area (plot potential there) and the interplay between generations. Who wouldn't want to spice up their lives with a little ballroom?
