Pop on your dancing shoes and check out my review for Strictly Come Dating by Kathryn Freeman

I love Sunday reading and today I am delighted to be on the blog tour for two brilliant and very different reads today. Kicking off my Sunday I am reviewing Strictly Come Dating, my first read by Kathryn Freeman and I loved it! 

Strictly Come Dating

My Review

A wonderful light hearted read brimming with friendship, fun, dancing and romance.Maggie is that wonderful organised mum that we all admire who always appears to have her life together and with two fab daughter’s as a testament to her hardwork.

Whilst Seb is fun loving, disorganised and creates chaos wherever he goes. However the friendship that flourishes between them as he turns up with his sister’s to watch Strictly Coming Dancing each week is fantastic.

I loved the dancing lessons and the importance of the dancing throughout the story and how it encourages Maggie to let her hair down and have a bit of fun. This is a story that just dances off the pages as your reading I found that I was egging the characters on as I read and wanted to know what would happen next and how they would react as their friendship intensified.

The perfect read to curl up enjoy on a chilly evening and get lost in the wonderful dancing, fun and laughter.


Book Blurb

Saturday nights are strictly for dancing… 

As the glitter ball shimmers and sequins flash, forty-year-old Maggie remembers the pull of the dancefloor.  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 stilettoes and enrols 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

Meet the Author

Kate Freeman-58

A former pharmacist, I’m now a medical writer who also writes romance. Some days a racing heart is a medical condition, others it’s the reaction to a hunky hero.

I’ve two sons and a husband who asks every Valentine’s Day whether he has to buy a card (yes, he does), so any romance is all in my head. Then again, his unstinting support of my career change proves love isn’t always about hearts and flowers – and heroes come in many disguises.

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
