An excellent story with great characterization and compelling background. Who isn't curious to know what it takes to bring a show to Broadway. Of course this is fiction. I'm sure there is much more than shown here.

It is good to see the some of the family and catch up.

It has been many many years since I first read this story. I hadn't remembered it with the exception of the family O'Hurley. With such a theatrical family, Abby is an aberration. She has made a home and business the best she can with what she has. In some ways she is a scrapper and a survivor. Her first priority is her children and it comes through everything she does. She is an inspiration how can Dylan help but to see it and live it.

One of my all time favorites. Has multiple visits of people from previous stories including The Stanislaski's, Dreams and Reflections. Kate is snappy, emotional and determined. She takes after her Stanislaski heritage in all ways. Brody didn't know what hit him.

This is perhaps the, I don't know how many, time I have read this story. May I just say it is terrific. All the stories in this series are but this one has a particular place for me. I love how just when someone is feeling like life just doesn't matter any more, something happens to change everything. There are many elements to this story that keep me coming back. As I don't want to spoil anything ... just read it, you won't regret it.

I highly recommend this story to 14+ due to some mild sexual content.

Mikhail and Sydney make a rather unlikely pair at least looking from the outside. It isn't until we get a look at what's inside that the unmistakable signs of bone deep honest integrity and caring is seen. The girl who is uncertain and insecure and the boy who is distinctly confident and sure footed. They make a wonderful story and great addition to the Stanislaski family stories.

Terrific beginning to the Stanislaskis Family series. I fell in love with all the characters.

Having read this story multiple times through the years, it was refreshing to hear it through Audible. The accents were terrific and apart from a couple voice mistakes, terrific.

I've always like the characters and this time it was no different. Although this was written in the 80's it continues to be relevant today.

Along time favorite story after Reflections. The feeling of getting lost in the story just as Ruth gets lost in the dance comes only from the best. This time listening on Audible with a good narrator makes it that much sweeter.

Story best read after Reflections.

I first read this story a very long time ago. It was so memorable that just seeing the name brought back the whole story. Now, having listened to it, I know why. It is just that good. The characters are likeable and easily related to. There are fun moments, poignant moments, angry and hurt moments, and then of course joyous and triumphant moments. This story is well worth experiencing.

I'm on to Ruth's story.

An excellent romantic murder suspense story. Liz is fiercely independent, a single mother running her own business. She gets pulled into a murder investigation after one of her employees is murdered. Jonas meets Liz when he arrives to find out and take revenge on whoever killed his brother. The characters are strong and motivated. The story moves at a steady paced. Gabra Zachman does a good job narrating.

I first read this story many many years ago. Now I have heard it on Audible. Therese Plummer narrates. While she has pleasant voices for the characters I didn't appreciate her interpretation for BJ or at times others. I know NJ looks very young and is naive but Me Plummer made her sound like she was too young. She didn't have the air of authority needed to manage anything let alone a inn.

It is a fairly simple story all in all and somewhat predictable. I was not overly invested but entertained nonetheless.
