Please do not ask me about the Osmonds. Recipient of the 2018 David Thompson Memorial Special Service Award from Bouchercon Board. Goes to show you what I get for thinking. I really didn't think I would like this one. Even if the reader isn't a dance affectionado, he or she would love the unexpected twists in the plot and the zany characters. So when I rearranged the dance—preparing the team to compete at the Hollywood StarMakers Convention and Competition, which was coming to town at the end of the week—I moved Melissa back to the third row, far right.
Although it wasn't something I would recommend to others. However there were still parts of this book that had me rolling my eyes and wondering if the author was even involved in dance a little bit. As soon as Jenny agrees to take the job, her troubles really begin. Jenny needs the money and is glad to get the work. My reviews are only my opinion, and do not reflect the views of the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library. Most of the bad reviews I saw said that Jenny was over the top about Psycho Dance Moms and the Mormons. One that brings bone-chilling temperatures along for the ride.
When she receives death threats, and other dance instructors disappear, even homicide detective Tate Wilson has to take her seriously. I did not read the 1st book in this series but I didn't feel lost. And all the tea in Japan was not going to get her going in the right direction. Why can't we have a female cop best friend, or a gay male friend as the cop, or anybody else!?! This is such a fun, light mystery. Luckily, she has her police officer boyfriend, Tate Wilson, to try to protect her.
Partridge, but in Tapped Out Jenny has more than psycho moms to worry about. There are too many threats in too short of a time span to call it coincidence. But before Jenny can even get started, someone makes it clear that they want her to shuffle off to Buffalo. It doesn't trash the Mormons like the first book, and the psycho dance mom stuff was toned down a notch. Blondes don't have more fun. Partridge mysteries is Natalie M.
I could actually give her the real names, so as not to protect the not so innocent. Luckily, an old flame calls her and offers her a few thousand dollars to fill in as an instructor on the Hollywood Star Makers Tour, his traveling dance competition. Luckily, she has her police officer boyfriend, Tate Wilson, to try to protect her. However there were still parts of this book that had me rolling my eyes and wondering if the author was even involved in dance a little bit. Lastly, I just wanna scream at Jenny. If it isn't a Mormon missionary running away to be a dance instructor, it's a snowplow running her down in her parking lot.
She receives a threatening phone call but that is only the beginning of the disasters that befall her. It doesn't trash the Mormons like the first book, and the psycho dance mom stuff was toned down a notch. Carmen yanked at the brush holding my hair and I winced and cried out. Really enjoyable second entry in the series with Jenny getting involved with the murder and mayhem surrounding a traveling dance competition run by an old friend that comes to town. The boy sure has the right moves, but Jenny still is a little hesitant, until staying safe means staying with Tate.
Tapped Out is a fun book with a surprise ending. Who could imagine that once again her dance card would be filled with dastardly doings? Somehow, I just knew that bald would not be a good look for me. I probably should have scheduled the appointment for a time before I rearranged the Petites dance, and put her daughter in the back row. A small price to pay for a good book though. But before Jenny can even get started, someone makes it clear that they want her to shuffle off to Buffalo. Jenny thinks filling in as a dance instructor on the Hollywood StarMakers Tour will be easy money-until someone makes it clear that they want her to shuffle off to Buffalo. The story line of Tate Wilson and James is still being carried on.
I do have to say that this book is a tiny bit better then the first book. When other instructors start disappearing, Jenny, with the very attractive Detective Tate spotting her, vows that the show will go on. Most of the bad reviews I saw said that Jenny was over the top about Psycho Dance Moms and the Mormons. What do you think about this review? Sometimes these things do hurt. Protecting Jenny seems to be a full time job for Tate.
