Olympian Brenna Battle once had the fire. Now, she’s just burned out—and burned by love. She’s ready to retire from competitive judo and pursue a new dream in a new town, with her biggest supporter, her recently divorced little sister, Blythe. But on their first day in town, Blythe falls for local sleaze-bag reporter, Ellison Baxter, and their small-town welcome is stained by Baxter’s murder. The weapon—Blythe Battle’s hair brush.
In this fast-paced, fun cozy mystery, Brenna, the proud new owner of the building that formerly housed Bonney Bay’s lone recreational opportunity for kids, Little Swans Ballet, is ready to turn tutu-clad powder-puffs into little warriors by opening a judo school for kids in its place. But now she must clear her sister’s name and save her new dream from ending even more disastrously than her Olympic hopes. Brenna must deal with one crazy member of the local police force, who’s determined to see the sisters pay—and another cop, whose deep brown eyes just might drive Brenna crazy—in a way her battered heart just can’t take.


  • Fun read😀

    Totally enjoyed the Battle sisters beginning journey in B. Bay! Enjoyable ride with realistic humor along the way. Even though, I guessed who was the culprit early on it still was fun reading how B&B was going to figure it out. If you are into cozies mysteries, you will get a 'kick' out of this book and possible fall for 'a cute dimple on the side'. Read and find out🙂

    I really enjoyed the different elements of the story. I thought it was going to be predictable but she got me. The Battle sisters are adorable and their play and antics with one another wanted me to read more. I like the many different characters too

    The characters were believable. The situations that they got involved in were sort of humorous. Kept me guessing who the murderer was until the end.

    A very quick, easy read. Enjoyed the playfulness of the sisters. Just the right amount of fun and mystery with a tiny bit of romance thrown in for good measure!

    The main characters are well developed and believable. It is obvious from the start that they aren't guilty, but although you have suspects, it is a real mystery as to who is the real killer. I usually can figure it out, but it is nice being surprised occasionally. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
