Strictly Come Dating
By Kathryn Freeman
Rated: 5 stars *****

Strictly Come Dating is an uplifting, feel-good book that may get readers wanting to don the glitter and stilettos and get dancing, just like Strictly Come Dancing and waltz, rumba and shimmy into charming characters lives. Thanks to Harper Collins – One More Chapter, for accepting a request to review this book.

Strictly Come Dating cover

Blurb

Saturday nights are strictly for dancing… 

As the glitter ball shimmers and sequins flash, forty-year-old Maggie remembers the pull of the dance floor.  But now, as a newly divorced mum of two, Maggie’s certain her dancing days are over.  Or are they…?

Encouraged by her friends, Maggie dusts off her silver stilettos and enrolls for dancing classes, all she needs now is the perfect partner.

Enter Seb.  Young, carefree and hot as hell, Seb is definitely a perfect 10!  Even though everything about him is outrageously inappropriate! But as Seb sweeps her across the dancefloor every week, Maggie begins to see a new side to him; kind, caring, funny, strong.

And Maggie realises that he’s the only one she’d like to foxtrot with…perhaps even forever?

Review

Pizza, Friends and Strictly Come Dancing at the ready…
This is a delightful book to waltz into with its light wit and passion.

Sat around on a Saturday evening in Sarah’s living room are Maggie and  her daughters – Tabby and Penny and her hired nanny and now also friend – Hannah. There are also close friends of Maggie’s – Alice. It’s the highlight of the week – to settle down to Strictly Come Dancing. Not everyone is chuffed at this.

In the background of the mainly jovial atmosphere, is the heartache inside Maggie as she discovered Paul no longer wanted to be her husband.

Maggie loved to dance and cajoled by her friends, takes it up again. Seb, for all his snide comments about Strictly, gets into the swing of it when a fundraiser is needed for a basketball court for the kids and teens and comes up, much to the amusement of the teens, an idea based on Strictly Come Dancing.

There’s a beautiful, emotional contrast between the romance that’s in the air and slowly burning between Seb and Maggie and the grief that catches Seb from a family death. Things are also a bit complicated with Paul still being on the scene for his children. All this, combined with dance makes this book even better plotted than I thought it would be.

This is a light-hearted, well-written, uplifting book to get you in the mood for Strictly Come Dancing or to ease those withdrawal symptoms.
