So, for the first time in a while, we’ve got a blog tour on here, this one for a cool historical fiction. Enjoy!
About the Book
December 31, 1941. Young Houston socialite Tracy Truworth, Apprentice P.I., can’t
imagine a better way to send off the old year and ring in the new than by dancing
through the night with her fella, Pete Stalwart. But a swell evening soon takes a terrible turn when a fellow dancer with moves like Fred Astaire ends up dead on the dance floor. And before the hands on the clock can point to midnight, a finger is pointed at Pete, accusing him of murdering the young man.
Then after Pete is hauled away in handcuffs, the night goes from bad to worse . . . and
Tracy’s sweet grandmother is accused of stealing an ancient artifact from the museum. Now Tracy must team up with her boss and mentor, Sammy Falcone, in order to find the stolen statuette, unmask the real murderer, and restore the reputations of those she loves the most.
Yet as America becomes embroiled in another world war, the risks and sacrifices
intensify—even on the homefront. And Tracy soon finds her own home invaded by a
near parade of questionable characters, while unsavory suspects lurk in the shadows,
and a ruthless reporter makes her life miserable. With time ticking against her, Tracy
must be willing to swing past the setbacks and hop through the hazards if she hopes to
solve a mystery that involves a lot of dancing . . . and a lot more danger.
