I liked this book. It was a cozy mystery for the holidays.
At first I wasn't too sure. It read fast and you had to keep the names straight, since the story started up right away. But the story got real interesting. First time I read about a murder that happened around dancing. If you don't count what happened to Mary Katherine Gallagher's parents from the movie "Superstar" LOL!
Two of the girls Lindy and Rose make a good team. Even though things were not smooth all the time, they tried to get the job done and find their guy.
Funny to read about the dance competition being in Atlantic City, NJ. I was just there and they described that you lose time in the casinos because it's just there own little world. So a murder can happen easily without anyone ever knowing what happened. Just like what was happening around Lindy and Rose and the others. Also a little romance for Lindy ;)
I liked how everyone were friends and for the most part they all got along. The ending was good. I did figure out who the culprit was. Only to have suspicions of others.
I would read more of Shelley's books, pretty good.
This is a bookcrossing book and will be on it's way to Texas soon. I give A Merry Little Murder 5
