Summer Flings and Dancing Dreams by Sue Watson - Five *


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. 


What an amazing book! I didn't know quite what to expect but had no idea I would become so involved within a few pages!
Laura had had a boring life and she suddenly has the opportunity to brighten it up. Instead of merely watching Strictly, and enjoying the programme, she finds herself learning to dance.
What a journey she goes on! I so admired her courage and daring as she ventures out into the world with Tony's support. Tony is not the traditional hero but you'll have to read it to find out what I mean!
The trip to Spain was amazing for Laura - it could so easily have turned into a disaster, but by then she had the confidence not to allow that to happen.
A book about new beginnings, old demons and a complete change of attitude. Perfect reading for all women!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
