Book Review: The Real Corpse Pose
What’s a 30something Seattle yoga teacher to do when she finds a dead body and a snarling German Shepherd on her yoga studio’s doorstep?
If you’re writer and real-life yoga studio owner Tracy Weber, you first take a deep, cleansing breath, then sit down with a cup of organic chai, and pen a fast-paced mystery that will keep you wondering whodunnit until the last page.
Murder Strikes a Pose has just the right mixture of blood (hey, the title does say “murder”), guts (as in a gutsy heroine), and sex appeal (a cute guy who works in a pet store is a can’t miss) to enliven its 274 pages.
I enjoyed getting to know protagonist Kate, a yoga teacher with an attitude who seamlessly makes her way from warrior one pose to ace amateur private eye without losing her balance.
That Kate enjoys red wine and can hold her own against bad guys earns her big points in my world.
So roll up your yoga mat and grab a copy of Murder Strikes a Pose. It’s a bark out loud great read!
