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?
A laugh-out-loud, uplifting comedy about finding the courage to be yourself, the importance of dreams, and learning to grab life by the glitter balls.
Read on for my thoughts on Summer Flings and Dancing Dreams. No true spoilers, promise.
Summer Flings and Dancing Dreams is one of those stories that you simply need to read. The description of this novel does not do it justice. Just sayin’.
At some point in life, a single parent who has raised their child and set them free upon the world just has to say…. my time now. This is such a fun story of a woman stepping out and going for the things that she needs in her life. Nothing too crazy, just the chance to step out there and try something totally different from her usual life. You never know how much you can grow from taking just one risk. Or what the world will open up for you if you just for once say “yes.”
This novel will cause serious laughter, a few belly laughs, possible snorting and an overall feeling of happiness and enjoyment. You deserve this fun, charming and enjoyable novel – you really do. Pick it up, sit back and indulge yourself in laughter and knowing that life, at any age, is a fun adventure.
