Love Waltzes In

Alana Albertson. Bolero (www.buybolerobooks.com), $9.99 trade paper (286p) ISBN 978-0-9896243-1-2
Albertson seeks to dazzle with her debut tale of romance on the competitive dance circuit, but the glamour of her story—like that of the dance world—vanishes under close examination. The story is a straight line, leading childhood dance partners Selena Marcil and Bret Lord from re-introduction at tryouts for her reality dance show to their inevitable reconciliation with few detours and almost no conflict to generate interest or suspense. While the topic is trendy and timely, leading readers behind the lights and cameras, the characters are bland, transparent, and one-dimensional. The biggest draw is the detailed excursion into the incestuous world of dance. For anyone who has ever imagined taking a turn under those bright lights, this is sure to thrill, but readers seeking a heart-stopping romance will be left disappointed. (Nov.)
