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?
Laura is a 44 year old single mother, who works at a supermarket and not just herself, but even her adult daughter feels that her life is boring. She does the same things and her life is quite predictable. It is all so until she goes attends a Zumba class and a dance teacher Tony notices her. From then all, her life is filled with dance classes and she feels that her life is changing, it is going somewhere, she is living again. Laura is good at dancing, she inspires a lot of middle ages women to start dancing, because there is nothing to be ashamed of doing something that you truly passionate about, no matter how old you are or how others might look at you.
Under different circumstances Laura goes to Spain, alone, and she enjoys the time there as much as she can. She didn’t just learn how to dance flamenco, but also met a local charmer. Trips like that are eye-opening and can help you realize things that you didn’t notice before.
It’s the second book I’ve read by Sue Watson and I completely enjoyed reading it. It was a fun read, which was entwined with thought-provoking moments. It’s a great story and I can’t wait to read more from the author.
