Today’s featured book is Timestep to Murder by Norma Lehr.
Why I chose this book:
Toe–tapping Lake Tahoe reunion of Rockette’s–type retired dancers. Two dancers are murdered and here they go, plot to be solved by the amateur detective. It’s a good story with the setting almost playing a role as much as the living characters.
Reunions Can Be Deadly. How deadly? Abby Rollins, a Manhattan Toppette in the 70s and 80s, is about to find out. She joins five other former Toppettes, once a wildly popular group of chorus line dancers, on the Celebrity Showroom stage for one weekend at the Cal Neva Resort Hotel at Lake Tahoe. Although twenty–five years have passed since their last gig, their professional and romantic rivalries are not forgotten. With so much bad blood between them, no wonder two of the dancers end up dead. No matter what the cost, Abby is determined to absolve her best friend Renee from all suspicion. Meanwhile, who is that mysterious figure lurking backstage? Who’s leaving the anonymous notes? What about the sleazy comic who’s emceeing the event? The group’s solid fan base and the sensational nature of the murder investigation guarantees a sold–out house. Abby’s new friend Blade, a former cop turned P.I. whose interest in Abby is more than professional, has his hands full keeping her out of danger. But is he really who he claims to be? Is anyone?
