"The enjoyable worlds of professional dance and cooking elevate this mystery, and Elli is an admirable and engaging heroine." -Kings River Life Magazine It's opening night at the Ballantyne Foundation's production of The Nutcracker, but it's curtains for the Sugar Plum Fairy. When her body is found backstage, fatally poisoned by a cupcake she baked herself, rumors turn to suicide. But Elli Lisbon, director of the Ballantyne and coordinator of the ballet, smells something rotten amidst the sugar and spice. As Elli applies her PI-in-training skills on the troupe of suspects, she discovers an eccentric herbalist, a temperamental chef, a stalking choreographer, and a bevy of backstage secrets. Between her off-the-record investigation, duty as director, and highly charged love life, she finds herself caught in a dance to stay one pirouette ahead of a half-baked killer. "The investigation takes you to an herbalist's garden, a cooking show and a dance studio, a mashup of Chopped, Dance Moms and Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. The result is lots of fun . . . While I've loved every book in this series, this is my favorite. They just keep getting better." -Examiner.com "A delightful amateur sleuth with an aversion to germs, who's always willing to right a wrong." -Fresh Fiction
