The Ballroom Class Paperback
by Lucy Dillon
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 fairytale wedding with a first dance to make Cinderella proud.
Not wanting to be shown up on the dancefloor, 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 foxtrot, 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...

Review by Glorybe1
I really enjoyed this book. It made me want to get my dance shoes on! Katie and Ross, Lauren and Chris and Bridget and Frank are 3 of the couples who sign up for the class in the local memorial hall. They all have their problems, but they get together on a Thursday night to try and learn to dance. Angelica Andrews an ex-champion dancer is their teacher and she can see more than you think! She has her own past and ghosts that need to be laid to rest, and it all comes together in one really enjoyable, heartwarming story!

This is the second book I have read of Lucy Dillon's and I do like the way she writes about her characters and their ups and downs of their lives, uniting them in a shared common theme. In this case, ballroom dancing. The characters drew every kind of emotion out of me, and I loved it.
