High School... it was probably a few or more years ago for many of us. But do you remember the high school dances? Ours were in the lunchroom. We had only one big one (the prom) offsite but the rest were in the same place we ate lunch. The music was mostly piped in and the decorations were paper. Dances were the highlights of those years. We loved the chance to show off our moves and maybe steal a kiss from our dates.
WALTZIN' BLIND is the latest release by Connie L. Smith and brings me right back to those glory days. WALTZIN' BLIND is the sequel to Jivin' Tango where we are introduced to the new couple- Lila and Austin. You don't have to have read Jivin' Tango to love WALTZIN' BLIND. This story is a classic high school tale of opposites attract and the many things/people who get in the way of their happy ending. When High School ends, will Lila and Austin still be the cute couple or will they have found new dance partners?
Coming in paperback and print on November 15th, WALTZIN' BLIND will draw you back to your golden years.
Dancing in the storm is one thing. Waltzing in a secret one? Way harder.
Five months have passed since Lila and her dancer partner, Trent, placed third in the annual dance competition. That’s also when she fell, hard and fast, for her childhood friend, Austin. The dance competition was a dream come true. Austin was the surprise of a lifetime and proof that unknown things can be good—blissful, even, like a perfectly choreographed waltz under a moonlit sky.
But lately, the unknown things are piling up. Her friend, Jacey, is keeping secrets, her parents are acting odd, and Austin is most definitely hiding something from her—something big. And is she losing her mind, or is she suddenly being watched?
Her world no long feels like a graceful waltz, but a mosh pit of dancing elephants she has to ignore if she wants to keep her sanity, even if it means closing her eyes to everything around her. After all, it’s her tried-and-true method of coping, and she’ll cling to it for dear life.
Lila’s waltzing blind through an obstacle course of secrets. One misstep, and she’ll break under the weight of all the lies and deceit, and the carnage won’t be pretty.
The thing about a waltz? One misstep is easy to spot and hard to ignore, let alone two, three, four…
Don’t Miss the Exciting Sequel to Jivin’ Tango, the beginning of Trent and Lila’s love story. Praise for Jivin’ Tango- “This book involves several lessons many women need to learn. It's also a well written love story. The characters are relate-able and fun. Ms. Smith gives us a front row seat to events pretty common in the high school world.” -Book Reviewer
