LET'S GET COZY: DEAD MAN WALTZING - A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 
 GIVEAWAY ENDED
DEAD MAN WALTZING
A Ballroom Dance Mystery
BY ELLA BARRICK
ABOUT THE BOOK:
When Corinne Blakely, a grande dame of international ballroom dancing, is poisoned, the dance community — including champion dancer Stacy Graysin — is left in an uproar. Corinne was penning a tell-all memoir, but now her secrets might well remain hidden, perhaps just as the killer intended.

The victim’s dance card was full of people who might have wanted her silenced, if not dead. But when Maurice, a ballroom instructor at Stacy’s dance studio, Graysin Motion, becomes the prime suspect, Stacy has no choice but to waltz in and take the lead.

Clearing Maurice’s name is going to be harder than a running spin turn. But there’s one thing Stacy knows for sure — she’s not about to let the murderer dance away scot-free.
Second in the Ballroom Dance mystery series.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Ella Barrick grew up in the South, but has since migrated West.  She spent some time working for Uncle Sam and taught English at the college level before turning her hand to writing mysteries. 

Ella and her husband took exactly two ballroom dancing lessons on the quickstep before Ella’s bruised ankles and crushed feet forced them to retire.  (Her husband is a wonderful guy, but he doesn’t have a single ballroom dance gene in his whole body.)  Thus, Ella relies on the kindness of competitive ballroom dancers and friends who foxtrot fabulously for the dance details in her Ballroom Dance Mysteries.  And, of course, she watches Dancing with the Stars for costume and choreography ideas! 


Besides writing, Ella enjoys reading, gardening, home decorating, traveling, and long walks or hikes. 


Please read more about Ella on her website and "Like" her on Facebook.

On the author's site I learned that the quickstep is a combination of the foxtrot and the Charleston.
