Dance Away with Me Susan Elizabeth Phillips read online review & book description:

At long last, the legendary New York Times bestselling author returns with a heartfelt novel of womanhood, a wild heart, and the healing power of love.

Run, run, as fast as you can!

When life throws her one setback too many, midwife and young widow Tess Hartsong takes off for Runaway Mountain. In this small town high in the Tennessee mountains, surrounded by nature, she hopes to outrun her heartbreak and find the solace she needs to heal. 

But instead of peace and quiet, she encounters an enigmatic artist with a craving for solitude, a fairy-tale sprite with too many secrets, a helpless infant, a passel of curious teens, and a town suspicious of outsiders, especially one as headstrong as Tess. Just as headstrong is Ian North, a difficult, gifted man with a tortured soul—a man who makes Tess question everything. 

In running away to this new life, Tess wonders— Has she lost herself . . . or has she found her future?

  • Dance Away With Me

    By Tiggy/Cookie
    I have loved all of Susan’s books, but this one was very different than what I was used to. It was well written but I couldn’t identify with the characters or the setting, and her great humor was missing.

    Susan Elizabeth Phillips just gets better and better. This stand alone piece has wonderful small-town characters, a well developed hero and heroine, and supporting antagonists that have their own stories, but do not distract from the plot one bit. If the characters ever have to travel, no worries, they all have plenty of baggage, but the way SEP unpacks this story makes the journey really worthwhile. I read this twice.

    SEP does it again. Relatable characters who you get emotionally attached to as they get through the grieving process and learn to open their hearts again.

    Interesting characters with a great story. Love the interactions among the cast. Couldn’t put this down and had to finish it in one sitting!

    Dance Away With Me by Susan Elizabeth Phillips There’s a reason this author is continually on The NY Times bestseller lists. It includes phenomenal writing, multi-dimensional characters and a story to invest your emotions and time in reading. This story includes a street artist learning to let go of his anger, a widow learning to live with her grief and learning to live and love again. And a small town learning to encompass change. Overly dramatic? I will admit to shedding some tears in a couple of the emotional scenes. A story of family, renewal, and accepting change. I loved it. It is darker than the usual by this author. I won an early copy of this book from the publisher through a reader conference. 4.5 rounded up.
  • Not like her other works. Tries to do too much

    By Lucky Reads
    I have been a fan of SEP for years and have read all her books. I prepay for most of her ebooks and count down the days until they download. I even took PTO so I could spend all day reading. I won’t be doing that again if this is her new direction. This book was exhausting. It’s like her publisher said: here are all the hot agenda topics going on in the world today, make sure you include them all here. In a tiny TN town you will find the characters paragons of social justices on: child abuse, adoption, gender equality, sexual education in schools, teen sex, miscarriage awareness, depression, environmental consciousness, body image issues, grief, I could go on. These are all topics worthy of discussion, but to have them all crammed in the book was ludicrous and poorly handled. The two main characters navigate all these issues so flawlessly that it’s the least believable book she’s written (and she is known for very quirky characters so that’s saying something). If you’ve read her before, try to get a preview or read a few more reviews before you purchase. If you haven’t, pick one of her previous works. They are fun, quirky and great to get lost in.
  • Another gut-check love story!

    The heartache of Dream a Little Dream, the laughter of Lady Be Good... I couldn’t put it down. SEP has not lost her touch!

    Susan Elizabeth Philips has done it again...Dance Away with Me was an engaging read from beginning to end. The characters were believably imperfect and written with a sense of humor. I enjoyed every page.
  • Love it!

    I always love Susan Elizabeth Phillips’ books. I found myself laughing and then crying. It hit all the notes. The details of the characters are amazing. This story will warm your heart.
