Dance Over Me by Candee Fick (review by Cathy)

dance over me

About the book:

Danielle Lefontaine, a fledgling actress raised to the lullaby of Broadway, searches for her long-lost brother and her place on the stage, but a jealous cast member and numerous fruitless leads threaten to drop the curtain on her dreams and shine a spotlight on her longing for a place to belong.

Meanwhile, Alex Sheridan is living his dream except for someone to share it with. When Dani dances into his life, he hopes he’s found the missing piece to his heart but fears the bright lights of the stage could steal her away. Will the rhythm of dancing feet usher in their deepest desires or leave them stranded in the wings?

My review:

When you read this book, you’ll not only get an upfront seat, you’ll get a behind the scenes look into dinner theatre production.

The characters are strong and the story is interesting and fast paced.

Candee Fick captured my attention from the first page where I met Dani.  Dani possesses a determination that I greatly respected. There is so much drama (off stage) that added to Dani’s story-line.  The jealousy and lies surrounding her at work and her shared apartment with fellow cast mates was awful, but credible.   Fortunately, she had the friendship and support of Alex and the Sheridan family which made things more bearable for her.   The family is pivotal in her life and her career.

As a fan of dinner theatre I really enjoyed this well written book and learning the sacrifices the performers must make for the show to go on.

I received a copy from the author for my honest opinion.
