Natalie M. Roberts takes the reader on a humor-filled romp in her new Jenny T. Partridge mystery Tutu Deadly. To call Jenny's life style unconventional doesn't do justice to the colorful enemies and friends who complicate her life as she struggles to find a missing young dancer and the killer of the girl's mother. Relatives determined to marry Jenny off, a gay man using her as camouflage, ambitious dance moms, and amorous police detectives vie with one another to complicate her life the most. From official release/information:
Book Description: Meet the dance instructor who puts criminals behind bars. Meet Jenny T. Partridge, founder of Ogden, Utah's premier school for budding prima-and not-so-prima-ballerinas. For Jenny, dealing with difficult stage mothers is business as usual...until murder cuts in.
When the obnoxious mother of Jenny's most talented student meets her maker - courtesy of poisoned cookie dough purchased through the Academy's fund-raiser - Jenny must dance as fast as she can to clear her name.
