Publisher's Summary

For the millions addicted to Strictly Come Dancing, a debut tapping in to the world's latest craze.

When three couples join a new ballroom class, they're all looking for some magic in their lives.

Lauren and Chris are getting married, and Lauren's dreaming of a fairy-tale wedding with a first dance to make Cinderella proud. Not wanting to be shown up on the dance floor, her parents, Bridget and Frank, have come along, too. They normally never put a foot wrong, but Bridget's got a secret that could trip them up unexpectedly.

Meanwhile Katie and Ross are looking for a quick-fix solution to their failing marriage even though neither is quite sure who's leading who anymore.

As friendships form over the fox-trot, the rumba rocks relationships, and the tango leads to true love, all the students in the ballroom class are about to face the music and dance....

    "Great story, flawless narration"

    I always enjoy Lucy Dillon's books, and this is no exception, with a particularly skilled narrator really bringing the characters to life.

    "I love Lucy Dillon Books"

    And Lucy Price-Lewis narrates them wonderfully. I have now listened to every single one of their audio books and ask disappointed to have run out! Looking forward to the next one. A fab listen!

    Story
    "Not one of her best!!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I didn't really like any of the characters, I found them all to be quite annoying and didn't warm to any of them. Angelika was a cold fish, very bossy and unlikable and her storyline was tedious. Katie was a miserable, moaning boring person, her husband Chris was a wimp! Lauren has got to be the most selfish self centred young girl ever. Her planning for the wedding was so ridiculous - did she not know anything at all about her parents financial situation? Did she think they were millionaires? Bridget's Scottish accent was annoying.


    Have you listened to any of Lucy Price-Lewis’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    She is a good narrator and tries to put different voices to the different characters.


    Any additional comments?

    The book wasn't what I thought it was going to be. I thought it would be quite humorous but it wasn't at all. I couldn't understand why Katie kept going on at Jo to change the locks on the door. WHY? Her husband had left HER - she hadn't kicked him out, so why would she need to change the locks?
    Near the end, the description of the dance with Katie and Ross went on for so long (about 20 minutes) that I had to fast forward because it just went on and on and on. I had to skip to the next chapter.
    I have read a few of Lucy Dillons books and usually thoroughly enjoy them, but this wasn't so good. I persevered to with this book but really didn't care what happened to any of them in the end.
