Marcia Talley informs us that her newest Hannah Ives mystery Dead Man Dancing will published in the fall 2008 from Severn House in hardback. You can, of course, pre-order the book from us and have it signed and personalized. Just email us at mysterylovescompany

Here's what Marcia has to say about Dead Man Dancing:

"Hannah Ives knows what it means to be a survivor, but will ballroom dancing be the death of her?

Driving a wedge between Ruth and her fiancé, Hutch, is not what Hannah intends when she recommends J & K Dance Studios to her sister. Ruth is determined to shine on her wedding day, but when KayGiannotti, the svelte, stunning half of J & K, floats across the floor to greet Hutch with a kiss, it’s clear this isn’t the first time they’ve met. Setting jealously aside, Ruth dazzles the instructors with her footwork, and Jay Giannotti charms the couple into auditioning for Shall We Dance?, a TV talent show.Then Ruth is sidelined by a brutal attack, and Hutch is partnered with Melanie, whose deafness is no bar to success.

The couple is waltzing to a win, until a ruthless killer turns the competition into a blood sport. Hannah steps in, and the dancing gets down and dirty. Jealous partners, pushy mothers, brats in rhinestones, hired thugs … will Hannah discover who is capable of murder before the final tango?"

Thanks Marcia. We can't wait to read the book.

That's all for now.
Happy summer reading from Kathy at Mystery Loves Company
