    I am torn I wanted to LOVE this book I love SEP she is one of my favourite authors ever I have read and re read and listened and re listened to many of her books over the years But, this one fell a bit flat for me While reading it, I was enjoying it but I kept comparing it to the brilliance of some of her other books It Had to Be You, Dream a Little Dream,

    5 STARSI finished this book late last night, so my thoughts are still a little jumbled What I will say is that this author never fails to impress me And I must also add that this book was not at all what I expected from her In fact, throughout the first half of the book, I was sorely disappointed It was heart wrenching and painful to read, but worst of all, the characters were doing nothing for me Hardly a redeeming quality among the lot of them But as the book evolved, so did the characte 5 STARSI finished this book late last night, so my thoughts are still a little jumbled What I will say is that this author never fails to impress me And I must also add that this book was not at all what I expected from her In fact, throughout the first half of the book, I was sorely disappointed It was heart wrenching and painful to read, but worst of all, the characters were doing nothing for me Hardly a redeeming quality among the lot of them But as the book evolved, so did the characters And by some miracle, the story started to get to me It was sort of like staring at one of those 3 D paintings call autostereograms, that you have to stare at a while to see the hidden picture beneath And once it pops out at you, you can t unsee it One of the things that struck me about this book, was the author s complete departure from her earlier writing style In particular, the lack of humor There were a few minor attempts at throwing it in, but there wasn t enough to quash the unsettling vibe that permeated throughout the book Now towards the end, that started to change Which was where I feel the book was brought back into focus Had she not accomplished this with pure SEP sparkle, I might not have felt the same about it all in the end Was it possible if, instead of feeling too little, he felt too much If you ve not read any of SEP s other books, this review is going to sound confusing and vague But for those of you who know her books well, I think it will makesense I wasn t entirely sure how to rate the book at first, considering how I d felt in the beginning But then, like I said, once it all made sense to me, I couldn t un love it Would I read it again absolutely And thetime I spend thinking about it, theI love it I know this book is going to inspire mixed reviews from faithful SEP fans, simply because of it s departure from the grid but what I say to that is look deeper, it s all there, you just have to let the picture come to you

    3.5 starsI generally have some strong love for SEP, and this was enjoyable by normal book reading standards for this genre I read it over the course of just 24 hours But it s not necessarily this author s best which is a high standard If you have read other SEP books then you will know that this book will feature A a quirky in some small way female MC that is usually kind of poor and almost everyone likes her except for a couple of people who REALLY don t like her and B a male MC th 3.5 starsI generally have some strong love for SEP, and this was enjoyable by normal book reading standards for this genre I read it over the course of just 24 hours But it s not necessarily this author s best which is a high standard If you have read other SEP books then you will know that this book will feature A a quirky in some small way female MC that is usually kind of poor and almost everyone likes her except for a couple of people who REALLY don t like her and B a male MC that will be gruff and also really wealthy This book is no different in that regard, it check marks both of those boxes However, what this book IS missing is C SEP s signature light hearted combative banter Well, it s there, but it just doesn t hit as strongly as it has in other books The closest it got for me was when all the people kept showing up at her door unannounced Also, the epiphany at the end felt a little forced This review is kind of terrible because it makes the book sound bad, and it s not It s just not as fun as her other books I would recommend reading a different book by this author if you have never read anything by her before May I suggest my personal favorites Dream a Little Dream and Natural Born Charmer And if you have read this author before, then maybe lower expectations a smidge, but you ll probably still enjoy this too

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This book didn t read like the sassy, energetic romances that I ve come to expect from SEP It was slow and sad and a little unnerving at times The heroine was different A little annoying, exasperating, and troubled, but expectedly so The hero was the same Believe it or not I felt like one or the other needed to be grounded for this relationship to really function effectively and, even by the end of the book, I didn t fee I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This book didn t read like the sassy, energetic romances that I ve come to expect from SEP It was slow and sad and a little unnerving at times The heroine was different A little annoying, exasperating, and troubled, but expectedly so The hero was the same Believe it or not I felt like one or the other needed to be grounded for this relationship to really function effectively and, even by the end of the book, I didn t feel that the two of them were in any sort of condition to be in a relationship with one another without some serious therapy.The heroine preached the importance of therapy and getting help, but didn t appear to have sought any herself She was a busybody yes, she was in the right most of the time, but damn girl pick one battle to fight and stick with it, rather than trying to be the moral compass for an entire town.In the end, I was pretty disappointed It was a deeper, darker read than I m used to with SEP, so if you re looking for something similar to the Chicago Stars or herlight hearted reads with powerful heroines and dickish heroes, you re probably going to be let down by this.Still, if angst and anger and sadness and two characters who can hardly survive on their own but somehow are going to function together are your thing then you might light it At least the writing was good

    There are a few things I ve come to expect when I crack open a SEP book.A gruff hero, a spirited heroine, humor and enough conflict to build some angst usually brought by the hero acting like a total jerk, all of it packaged in a heartwarming romance.Dance Away With Me offers all of the above and , however it was positively different from what I m used to from this author For instance, I didn t expect the story to hit me in the feels and make me cry ugly tears 15% in It s a definite somber There are a few things I ve come to expect when I crack open a SEP book.A gruff hero, a spirited heroine, humor and enough conflict to build some angst usually brought by the hero acting like a total jerk, all of it packaged in a heartwarming romance.Dance Away With Me offers all of the above and , however it was positively different from what I m used to from this author For instance, I didn t expect the story to hit me in the feels and make me cry ugly tears 15% in It s a definite somber take, some could even describe one particular scene gruesome, especially coming from SEP It s downright tragic, but trust Susan Elizabeth Phillips to balance heartbreak with heartfelt and heartwarming feels She does it brilliantlyI can t help but feel some readers would need a content warning, so I ll drop a spoiler at the end of this review, be aware that this is also a huge spoiler for the rest of the story I m sure some reviews will let you in about what links the character together, but my advice is that you re better off discovering this for yourself It s a real challenge not to tell about it in this review, considering how such a MAJOR factor it plays in the book Please forgive me for this vague review but I don t want to spoil the book Let me tell you a little bitabout the characters then You like your heroes toeing the line of assholes You ll be in fine company with Ian North It took me a good quart of the book to determine if he was worth redeeming, fortunately he does The jerk Still, I was now counting on some major growth of character from him, hoping for a nice good grovel evenwhich he kinda delivers His level of irascibility was intense, he sure owned his role of tortured heroYou don t strike me as a callous heartbreaker You re fairly decent when you re not being a jerkTess made the book for me She s a lot to take in, presented as a broken woman, a widow, I wasn t expecting her to be the image of fierceness and resilience She has the distinct trademark personality all SEP heroines share temper, snark, stubborness and a little bit of crazy Tess Hartsong was fanciful alrightDo you have any personality other than the dark and mysterious part I have lots of personality Aloof ForebodingAlong the way, Tess uplifting snark helping, SEP guides us intofamiliar territory, humor and banter break through, the grouchy hero reveals cracks in his armor and all pieces of this incredible puzzle SEP has laid out for us start to come together The somber feels from the beginning recedes only to let room for the most excruciating slow burn between Tess and Ian.Or should I say Tess, Ian and the rest of the town.I love a small town setting so I wasn t disappointed by all the side characters popping in here and there but I would have loved to seedevelopment in the romance between Tess and Ian ALONE It needs acknowledging that this wasn t a lovestory about two characters The whole town is in on it The many intrusions from side characters played a good part in the almost intolerable tension growing between Tess and Ian, so when they finally get TOGETHER the sense of gratification and the feeling of urgency that comes alive on the pages is reward enough.I adored seeing the teens dropping by the house for their sex ed talks with Tess, Ian in the background trying not to laugh I loved how Tess, retired midwife was such a disturbance in this secluded small town, especially at her job at the Broken Chimney, serving coffees, ice cream, pies, refusing to sell cigarettes but advocating for condoms on the counter to the folklore of people of Tempest, Tennessee.I absolutely loved Dance Away With Me, Susan Elizabeth Phillips offers here what every romance reader want Laughter, tears and love only a little backwardTess Hartsong was a woman who offered her heart too freely The worst thing she could do would be to give it away to a man who couldn t treasure it.He intended to make sure that didn t happenContent Warning view spoiler grief, death, childbirth death hide spoiler I received an advance review copy from the publisher.More reviews and book talk atYou can find me here too
