I could not be more delighted to be on the blog tour today for Annette Hannah’s gorgeous book Lottie’s School of Dance.
About the book
Lottie Daniels is dancing up the altar in Canada when she realises her whirlwind wedding is a big mistake. Chad isn’t the right person for her at all! And, in that moment, Lottie goes from dancing bride to runaway bride.
Much to her brother’s relief, Lottie decides to return to Bramblewood in the UK. But life has more surprises in store for her. After rescuing both a donkey and a little old lady called Doris – all with the help of a handsome stranger! – Lottie suddenly becomes a big part of Doris’s life.
From broken dreams to second chances, Lottie finally has a chance to rebuild her life. When her friends suggest she takes part in a dance audition she refuses point blank but it soon becomes clear that destiny has other plans.
You are guaranteed to fall head over heels with this sweet and charming romance
What did I think?
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Lottie’s School of Dance. It was romantic, it was inspiring, it made me want to get up off my backside and join a dance class. It was gorgeous!
It was lovely to be back in Bramblewood with glimpses of characters and places from this wonderful community that we’ve read of before. Although, don’t worry if you’ve not read the others. Each one can be read as a standalone without any feeling that you’d missed out on any of the back stories. But you should read them all because they are lush!
With fabulous main characters of Lottie, Marco, Doris, and of course, how can I miss out Denni the donkey and a gorgeous setting of a converted barn, I couldn’t fail to be sucked into this book from the very first page. I adored Lottie and Doris’s relationship and loved how Lottie was able to heal from her past grief and the loss of her parents with the help of her new friends and being back where her brother and his growing family lived.
For me, this book had everything that I ever want from a book. A gorgeous hunky hero, a pet or two, a multi-generational relationship, and a main character that you either want to be, or be best friends with, along with a story that you became consumed by, compelled to turn those pages to find out what was happening next. This book had the lot.
An absolutely wonderful, heartwarming, uplifting, inspiring romance about love, hope, friendship, second chances, and life-changing moments. Highly recommended!
