Overview

2012 LEFTY AWARD FINALIST FOR BEST HUMOROUS MYSTERY
"Sample's sleuth is an endearing character readers will adore." –RT Book Reviews


Discovering she has two left feet isn't the biggest problem for Laurel McKay when she agrees to learn a foxtrot routine for her best friend's Lake Tahoe wedding. Stumbling over the lifeless body of a sexy Russian dance star with her broken shoe heel stuffed in his mouth... is far worse. Almost as bad as running into the hunky detective she dated briefly before he disappeared from her life.

When another death occurs on the ballroom floor, Laurel finds herself waltzing her way into the dark secrets of the Golden Hills Dance Studio. Navigating kids, career, wedding planning and murder requires some fancy footwork. Can Laurel tango with a killer and stay alive?

"This follow-up to Dying for a Date featuring Laurel McKay is another hilarious romp filled with twists and turns and a vexing mystery. Sample's one-liners are amusing and her development of Laurel McKay as a caring, self-deprecating, everyday woman is well-done.
–Midwest Book Review

"Cindy Sample has mastered the art of REAL dialogue. The characters are wacky and believable. Any woman who constantly finds herself in awkward situations will love this book. This is a story that will make you wonder "who did it" and make you laugh out loud. Of course, the romance simply is divine!"

Cindy thought her protagonist, Laurel McKay, needed a vacation in Hawaii, which resulted in Dying for a Daiquiri, a finalist for the 2014 Silver Falchion Award for Best Traditional Mystery. Laurel returned to Placerville for her wildest ride yet in Dying for a Dude. The West will never be the same.Then on to Dying for a Donut, the tastiest mystery of them all. It was time for Laurel (and Cindy) to take another vacation so get ready for the cruise of the century in Dying for a Diamond. Cindy is a five-time finalist for the LEFTY Award for best humorous mystery and a past president of the Sacramento chapter of Sisters in Crime.
