Hey AccessDancies---

If you love the drama that sometimes surrounds ballroom dancing, you might want to try a little mystery with this recently released mystery novel called, "The Ballroom Boondoggle." Here's a brief synopsis of the book sent to us by the author, L. Lee Watkins:

"Each of the books in The Dallas Kincade Series of Murder Mystery Novels by L. Lee Watkins is set in a background of interest. Book 2 of the series, The Ballroom Boondoggle, is set in the ballroom dancing world. After a wealthy amateur ballroom dance competitor, Jillian McLean, is murdered while attending a competition with her professional partner, Jillian's daughter, Lani, is convinced that her mother's partner is responsible for the murder and vows to prove it. Fearing for her granddaughter's safety, the matriarch of the family, Opal Mclean, hires Dallas to protect her granddaughter as she pursues her investigation. At first, Dallas considers the quest to be a boondoggle, a waste of time and money on an activity with little chance of success, but that opinion changes as time goes on. The investigation takes Lani and Dallas deep into the world of Professional-Amateur ballroom dancing, including taking dance lessons as part of their cover. Many male readers will identify with our hero's pain as he learns to keep his chin up and his head left! The author and his wife are former USA Dance Senior Open American Smooth National Champions."

You can find it in the AccessDance Network store available in both paperback and digital.
