My review: Chorus Lines, Caviar, and Corpses by Mary McHugh   ( Happy Hoofers Mystery series #1)

This is the first book in a fun new series about 5 middle age women who are dancers.  This is exciting, murder mystery, lots of action, travel in Russia on a river cruise. I really liked the characters.  I am already starting to read the next in the series.

The Happy Hoofers are Tina, Janice, Pat, Mary Louise, and Gini.  Tina is the leader and the main character for the Chorus Lines, Caviar and Corpses.  The ladies are good friends and a little bit of everything. Their dancing was put up on the internet they were invited to dance on a cruise.

The Russian cruise was not what they expected.  The cabins were crowded, the food was terrible, the chef was murdered.  They made some good friends too. Lots of humor about British chefs.

The setting was on the Volga river from Moscow to St. Petersburg. It made the sites tempting to go see.

The mystery was good I did not guess who the murder was. Tina was attacked and used her brain to get away from him.
I liked the Happy Hoofers and want to see more of them in the future.
I bought this ebook on Amazon.
