You can’t tiptoe when murder’s afoot…
It’s Bastille Day in Paris. The Happy Hoofers—Tina, Janice, Pat, Mary Louise, and Gini—are all set to kick off the fete by dancing the cancan on a beautiful sightseeing cruise down the Seine. As the leggy ladies soak in the magic of the city of lights, everything is magnifique…until a very important patron goes belly-up on the top deck.
On the heels of their French debut, murder takes center stage. The five daring dancers will need to step lively to stop the crafty killer fast…or their grand finale will turn out far more explosive than the fireworks over the Eiffel Tower…
Includes Fashion Tips And Tasty Recipes 

Review: I love this series, and this book just cemented that opinion for me. I love that the main characters are over 50, and that each book is told from the point of view of a different dancer. This time around, we get Janice's perspective and get to know more about her.

I was also thrilled that this story takes place in Paris, which is a place I've always wanted to visit. The author describes it vividly, putting me right in the city. And the food--there are so many descriptions, and recipes that I look forward to trying soon.

The next book will take the ladies, and the readers, to Rio. I can hardly wait!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.

Rating: Four stars
