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!

It’s not just about dancing 💃

A story of good believable characters having their unique struggles. Who come together at a dancing class. It’s fun and yes a little predictable but moves at a light enjoyable pace.
Lucy Price-Lewis glides us easily in with her wonderful narration.
