Shadow Dancing by Julie Mulhern


1970’s socialite Ellison Russell has been enjoying a stretch of weeks in which she has not found any dead bodies. It’s a relief for Ellison–and her formidable mother–but a medium has just informed her that the streak may soon be coming to an end. As Ellison would say: drat! Before she knows it, Ellison finds herself smack dab in the middle of a host of trouble, and this time, the whole family is getting involved!

This is by far one of my favorite mystery series. I love reading Julie Mulhern’s work and seeing what Ellison gets up to next. I know he’s sassy, but Max is always a delight on the page, as well! Shadow Dancing felt slightly darker and more sinister to me than the previous books in this series–but I didn’t mind. The story is, simply put, captivating. And, as always, I was delighted to encounter a certain special detective once again.

Finding bodies would certainly be a disconcerting habit; though, if it were me, and finding bodies guaranteed the presence of one Detective Anarchy Jones, well, I might not be so opposed!

39342180About the Book
Visiting a psychic is outside the norm for Ellison Russell. Finding bodies is not. Unfortunately, the psychic’s crystal ball says she’ll soon be surrounded by death. Again.


Now there’s a corpse in the front drive, a witchy neighbor ready to turn Ellison and her (not so) little dog into toadstools, and a stripper named Starry Knight occupying the guest room.

How did 1975 go so wrong so quickly?

Ellison must handle Mother (who’s found a body of her own), make up with a certain handsome detective, and catch a killer, or the death surrounding her might be her own.
