The final rating for the book is 3. Darla King accepted a job of a square dance caller on a cruise hoping to get some much-needed rest and fun. Instead it turned out to be the hard work at least, it was my impression and several seemingly unrelated strange incidents each one is more serious than the previous one.
Darla could not stay out of trouble and decided to do some investigation. Speaking about the strengths of the book, it really made me wish to go on a cruise - does not matter The final rating for the book is 3. Speaking about the strengths of the book, it really made me wish to go on a cruise - does not matter which one. Everything related to Darla's cruise is really good. I really do not care about square dancing, but the book made me interested in it - not enough to take it, but still.
I now know the names of some of the moves as well as what exactly caller does during the dance. Speaking of weaknesses, it takes practically half of the book for the things to settle in places and get interesting. I would not call the first half of the book boring, but rather slow.
All in all, this is a good cozy mystery worth 3. Darla King is a square dance caller. I find that interesting. I have very little exposure to square dancing other than the bit we did in gym in elementary school and what I see on tv. The callers I've seen are always men so that gave an interesting premise to the story. Darla is on a cruise which she gets to take for free in exchange for calling square dances and doing square dancing workshops.

Despite the advice of her friends and the sexy FBI agent on board, she plunges into the mysteries and almost gets herself killed. I had not read the first book in this series but I don't think that affected my understanding of this story. The characters are quite distinct, which I appreciate very much. They are also likeable and don't do stupid things.
I also appreciate that. The plot line is interesting with enough red herrings to keep you guessing. I looked forward to picking this book back up after I had to put it down to do something else.
Now a couple a of downsides. The writing style felt heavy to me. There was a lot more exposition than I required.

The first book was practically recapped in it's entirely and the backstories of each character were unnecessarily long. I think the advice "show, don't tell" would be appropriate for this book. It just really needed to lighten up and move a little faster. The one other things that just about drove me nuts was the word "hug".
We learn right off the bat that square dancers traditionally hug each other.
source link And hug they did! Sometimes 2 or 3 times in as many paragraphs! They hugged people they knew, people they didn't know, as they were meeting up, as they were leaving, when the sun rose, when the sun set Once I knew they "traditionally hug" each other, I probably could have done without the other hugs in the book. Does that seem nitpicky? Because I really did like the book but that was driving me to distraction. This was a good and enjoyable book that could have been at least a 4 star book with a little judicious editing but that won't stop me from enjoying the other books in this series.
