I am not usually a cozy reader but the pointe shoes drew me in. Being a former ballet dancer I had to read it. It’s a nice, simple, cozy mystery that takes place in a quiet little town of Tranquility, New York. There is a murder, dance teachers, students and a studio but there is not a whole lot about ballet itself.
The book has likable characters, there moments of suspense and humor. I enjoyed peeking into the window of a family dealing with their mother’s diagnosis of Alzheimer disease. The author handled this subject in an wonderful way.
It’s not the best but not the worst either. I will admit that I would not have read it if it was not for the cover. I do recommend it to cozy readers who just want a simple, easy weekend read.
I was provided this book by Netgalley free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
