9781419607059: Liffey Rivers and the Mystery of the Sparkling Solo Dress Crown (Liffey Rivers Irish Dancer Mysteries)

There is more excitement at this Celtic Arch Feis in St. Louis than 13-year-old Irish dancer Liffey Rivers could have possibly imagined. As Liffey is power-walking around the feis hotel lobby preparing for the next day's dance competition, (where she is determined to win a 1st place medal to qualify for her first solo dress) she notices a suspicious-looking man with a white stripe running down the back of his dark hair, like a skunk. Liffey observes that he is carrying a shopping bag with a beautiful porcelain Irish dancer doll peeking out. The doll is wearing a dazzling diamond solo dress crown but Liffey can tell that something is wrong with the doll and follows the 'skunk man' to get a better look. In her pursuit for answers, she finds herself not only competing for a medal, but taking decisive action to thwart a criminal conspiracy. After a series of close calls and in a state of near collapse, Liffey Rivers unravels the mystery of the sparkling solo dress crown."

From the Back Cover:

There is more excitement at this feis than Liffey Rivers could have ever imagined!

Will she finally win a 1st place in her soft shoe jig (her best dance step) and get her very own solo dress at last?

Or will she again get a "good, but not good enough" 2nd or 3rd place?

And who is that man Liffey sees standing by the elevators with the streak of white hair running down the back of his head (like a skunk) and what is he up to?

Liffey has seen him before. He is carrying a shopping bag with a beautiful curly-haired Irish  dancer doll peeking out. Liffey can see that the doll is wearing a dazzling diamond solo dress crown...but something is wrong...."

About the Author:

Brenna Briggs is the author of eight Liffey Rivers Irish Dancer Mysteries and, for adults: MAIDS: Mothers Addicted To Irish Dancing. She was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, into a third generation Irish American family. For many formative years, she thought that eating green-dyed bakery bread and sugar cookies with green icing on Saint Patrick's Day were the best things about being Irish. Her essays and short stories have been featured in Hornpipe Magazine, The Irish American Post, Canada's Irish Connections, The Sligo Quarterly Review, Irish Dancing and Culture Magazine and many other Irish American periodicals and newspapers. After spending six years in County Sligo, Ireland, where she wrote her first three books and looked at what seemed like most of the 3,000 heritage castle fragments, tombs and other ancient monuments marked on detailed local maps, she reluctantly moved back to the USA and now writes in the Driftless Area of Wisconsin in tiny Lancaster. "There is not much to do here but write and read books from the excellent local library, so I have become much more productive. This is important because when I do get out and about to do book events, my readers have often asked me why it takes me so long to finish the next Liffey Rivers mystery. I am hoping to put an end to such probative questions and accelerate my output!"
