Say it with Sequins: The Waltz is as the dance suggests a gentle romantic tale of a wallflower and a misunderstood hero.
Lucy a successful but reclusive children’s fiction writer finds herself on the reality television dance show Who Dares Dances thanks to her pushy streetwise agent the aptly named Whiz. Max an Olympic gold medal swimmer is the proverbial fish out of water in the dance studio and it’s this awkwardness that attracts Lucy a recovering agoraphobic who senses a kindred spirit.
Long hours of training make the couple want to be more than friends but neither is aware of their reciprocated feelings put off by the emotional barriers they are both so good at building. Lucy’s naivety leads to a tragic misunderstanding between the couple which makes a fairytale ending unlikely.
This story is full of poignant insights which endear Lucy and Max to the reader. An unforeseen intervention threatens Lucy and Max’s friendship. Luckily cupid appears in a spray tan and gives the couple a helping hand but Max must share his greatest secret if they are ever to be happy together.
Lucy and Max are introverts fighting internal battles which can only be won through self belief which makes Say it With Sequins: The Waltz’ more angst ridden than the first story. The damage prejudice and lack of understanding causes are important elements in this story. Its delicate balance between light and shade makes it a romantic satisfying read.

The Charleston , the last ofthe 'Say it with Sequins' stories ties up the series in a satisfying way and gives the lovely Daniel his chance of a happy-ever-after with Meredith, a feisty struggling actress and stand-up comedienne who needs to succeed in the dance reality show to kick-start her career.
I liked Merry she is intelligent, quick witted with a compassionate nature, the perfect woman for Daniel. Unfortunately, he still holds a candle for Julia (from book 1) and is afraid to take a chance on Merry in case she knocks him back.
Merry's famous, actress aunt plays a wonderful cameo role in the story.
Merry is forced to confront her deepest fears in the most public of arena's but her strength of character pulls her through but does she get her man? Read this charming story and find out.
