Dance like nobody’s watching. Love like you’ll never get hurt…
Laura Watkin’s heart isn’t broken, she’s just forgotten how to use it.
After years on her own, the highlight of single mum Laura’s week is watching Strictly Come Dancing with a glass of Pinot Grigio and a large helping of imagination.
With her daughter Sophie going travelling, Laura knows the time is right to do something for herself for a change. One disastrous Zumba class later and Laura ends up at the feet (literally) of gorgeous dance instructor Tony Hernandez.
A natural dancer and inspiring teacher, Tony rekindles in Laura a passion she inherited from her ballroom dancer father – and with it comes a dream… to make him proud.
But when Tony enters them to perform at the National Dance Festival, can Laura’s new-found confidence survive the test? And with a once-in-a-lifetime chance to learn Flamenco in Spain, could Laura truly learn to dance like nobody’s watching… and love like she’ll never get hurt?
I want to just say Fantastic, loved it. And leave it at that. lol.
But I can't. But I did. lol.. I started reading this pretty much as soon as I down loaded it. I had read 2 of sue's other books. Love Lies and Lemon cakes. And Snow Angels, Secrets and Christmas Cakes and bloody loved both of them. So when I got the heads up this was available on Netgalley I raced in to request it. And I started it while cooking tea, I can honestly say I don't think i've stood at the oven grinning and laughing for well,,, never lol.
Smiling before you get to the end of the first page, you just know it's going to be one of those books that you can't help enjoy and laugh out loud at.
Sue just seems to have this way of making you feel good while reading one of her books, the books just seem real, like they are everyday people that you know, in everyday situations that you can relate to.
The humor through her books is fantastic. Really big grin readers. (if that makes seance) lots of laugh out loud moments.
Having worked her Arse off and saving for her daughters wedding. which didn't end up taking place as planned, Laura is back to working in her boring supermarket job, wanting to lose weight but not wanting to do anything about it. Laura is left do all the mundane day to day things, and dreaming while doing it.
She decides to go to Zumba class with her mate Carole. Which turns out to be not for her. But oh so funny for you reading it.
After the disastrous Zumba class, she bumps into Tony, who persuades her to join his dance class.
This is pretty much where Laura's life changes. And boy does it change.
This is one of those stories that makes you think. I can change things if I want to. I'm sure reading this book it will give many women the courage to do what it is they have always dreamed of doing, you just need to get off your Arse and aim for the stars.
And that is what Laura set's off to do.
Read the book and follow Laura on a life changing journey of ups and downs, and round and rounds. lol.
Just brilliant. Can't Praise these books enough. If you want to smile, then read them.
