With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought it was time for a little romance! “Unforgettable” is the first historical fiction book I’ve read that takes place in the 1950’s. I love the time period, and the theme of dancing fits so well with my impression of it. This story will whisk you back in time into the world of dance for a delightful and unforgettable read!
I was immediately drawn into the story as I followed along with the main character, 32 year old Racheal Stanhope owner of a successful new dance studio. In the opening scene she’s waiting for her assistant to arrive & open up after having been lent the keys to lock up the night before. While she waits she has an unfortunate conversion with Josh who has brought his niece & nephew to their lesson. Assuming Rachel to be another parent, he vents his frustrations and skepticism for the arts, tardiness being typical for those ‘dance types’! This delightful exchange set the tone for the rest of the book which was filled with classic His & Her banter and an inevitable romance.

Every time I think about this book it makes me want to take dance lessons. I enjoyed that while the formula for romance was familiar the way the ending played out was a surprise to me. This happy, feel-good story is one that I’ll definitely want to revisit. It’s a perfect pick for a relaxing evening at home with a good book!
Thanks for sending me a copy to feature the book, Trish!
