I was drawn to request this book by the description, not the reference to the popular TV show. The book is about a marriage between the practical, analytical, data driven Laura and the more free spirited, creative, dancer Tom. It seems like an opposites attract situation until Carly twirls into their lives. Tom is on the staff of a theme park running the entertainment side of things and Carly is a new performer. Not only is Carly with Tom at work, but she is renting a room in Tom and Laura’s home for the performance season and it goes without saying she is beautiful. The plot also involves other mismatched couples, jobs in peril, laughter and friendship. The story is on the surface about marriage and how to have a good one. But it is also about asking for what you want or need, not just expect you partner to know and finally accepting that dreams change. Your dream life at 20, may not be what you want or need at 40.
So, do marriages between opposites last? Will Laura take that dance with Tom? Who is Will secretly pining for? To find out the answers you will have to pick up a copy of your own to read. A fun romantic story and you don’t have to be a fan of Strictly to enjoy it!
