When Kate Davidson gets an offer to teach yoga classes at the Elysian Springs resort, she jumps at the opportunity--even if it means enduring the wedding ceremony of the center's two caretakers. But avoiding the M-word turns out to be the least of Kate's problems when a wedding guest is found floating face-down in the resort's hot tub, shortly after a loud, public fight with Kate.

The police pick Kate as their number-one suspect, so she teams up with her boyfriend Michael, best friend Rene, and German shepherd sidekick Bella to find the real killer. They must solve the crime before the police arrest Kate, or her next gig may last a lifetime--behind bars.

After finding the 1st book in the series was mediocre and disjointed, I was willing to give this 2nd book a try, but wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised. I'm still not sure if I even like the protagonist (as while on one hand she spouts the Yogi teaching, and on the other, she can be quite judgmental, has a huge temper, and is very closed off from her on emotions), but the writing was greatly improved, and the story kept me engaged and wanting more.
