I Hope You Dance ~ Review

I Hope You Dance
A July Wedding Story: A Year of Weddings Novella
By Robin Lee Hatcher

Grant Nichols is determined to not fall in love and get marries anytime soon.  But he hasn't met Skye Foster yet and she just might be the woman to break through his defenses.  

Skye can't wait to find the man who is meant for her.  She has her life all envisioned and a houseful of kids is on her happily ever after must have.  Unfortunately she doesn't have any idea where to find her Mr. Right.  

When Skye agrees to help Grant master a couple of dances for his friend's upcoming wedding, she may have gotten more than her feet had bargained for (especially given Grant's ability for stepping on said feet).  Grant seems perfect other than his dancing abilities which Skye is determined to perfect.  But can any guy be truly perfect?

Can Skye and Grant overcome their biggest differences?  Or will their romance end on the dance floor? 

If you want a quick read that's short and sweet you will enjoy I Hope You Dance.  This would be a fun read to take on a week-end get-a-way if you don't want to do any serious reading.  I personally think the romance moves a little fast for my personal tastes, but this is a novella and there are constraints on fleshing out a story because this is, after all, a short story.

I was provided a digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

About the Book:
Meet the people who make it all happen—the planners, the photographers, the musicians who have helped orchestrate the perfect day for countless couples—as they find their own happy endings in the second Year of Weddings novella collection.

Can two left feet lead to one perfect romance?

Grant Nichols is a genius in the kitchen and a klutz on the dance floor. But his friend’s wedding is shaping up to be a shindig the likes of which Kings Meadow has never seen—including dancing. Lots of dancing. Then he learns that a local dance teacher, Skye Foster, is offering dance lessons for the wedding party. The first lesson is free, so what does he have to lose?

A former rodeo queen, Skye Foster teaches children ballet and tap during the day, but with the popularity of ballroom dancing and her own love of Country Swing, she’s been teaching adults in the evenings.

Grant comes from a family of ten siblings. He was the second oldest and believes he's had his fill of little rug rats. He’s happy with his bachelor state, despite the fact that he’s given up his ladies’ man lifestyle. Even he admits to his wilder nature and has been trying to clean up his act, with God's help.
Skye, on the other hand, loves being around kids. She would love to find the right guy and settle down to have half a dozen children of her own.

Grant and Skye are no match on paper. But when they step onto the dance floor, they create a melody all their own.
