A Quest for Love After Loss Takes Backseat to Family Crisis in New Mystery, One More Dance
Which comes first: family or love … or murder? A man's search for love after the death of a loved one yields to the hunt for his son’s mysterious assailant in Cardinale’s new novel, One More Dance.
Wood Ridge, NJ – A Manhattan realtor stands on the cusp of a new life after a devastating loss … only to be plunged into another family crisis. It's a story of love, loss and tragedy in the new mystery novel by Valentine Cardinale, One More Dance.
Julian Case is finally starting to pick up the pieces after the death of his wife of 31 years. At a wedding in Italy, Julian meets Alegra Rossini, a university professor and single mom whose beauty, grace and playfulness take his breath away as they dance the night away. On the plane back to the States, he’s already making plans to see her again.

But Julian enters his New Jersey home to a savage scene: His son has been brutally attacked and left for dead. Fearing that whoever beat the young man into a coma will return to finish the job, Julian puts his life – and his romantic attachment to Alegra – on hold to help a crusty but clever detective pursue the assailant.
Can a father unlock the secret connection and find his son’s attacker before it’s too late? Will Julian lose risk losing his chance for new love as he throws himself into the chase? And what about Alegra? Will real love pass her by as she waits for Julian to resolve a family crisis that may take months, even years, to resolve? Can they weather the storm and let love come into their lives again ... for one more dance?
