Focus on Love by Candee Fick

I enjoyed this novel!

Liz had desperately wanted to be a photographer in her family’s business, but the rift between her and her dad is too wide. She pursues her second love, drama, as an actor in a dinner theater.

Ryan has temporarily stepped away from his lucrative and award-winning photography career to support his sister while her husband is deployed. He proposes a photography package deal to Liz’s boss. Liz is drawn back into the hobby she loves when Ryan needs help.

After a couple of bad relationships, Liz is wary of starting another. She misses her mother, for the rift between her and her dad cut ties with her mom, too. It also affects her faith. She longs for reconciliation.

This sweet romance is a page-turner. It snagged my interest immediately. Readers get to spend a little more time with characters they fell in love with in a previous novel, Dance Over Me. I kept reaching for the novel to find out what happened next even when I needed to be doing other things. The characters are realistic and believable.

Recommend!

Dance Over Me by Candee Fick

I enjoyed this contemporary romance!

Danielle Lefontaine, actress/dancer, longs for a part in a Broadway musical. Hard work finally pays off when a local theater offers her a contract. Now she can concentrate on her career and finding her brother. Separated as children, she hasn’t seen him in years and is desperate to find him. After that, she may be able to focus on the band leader, Alex Sheridan, who has snagged her interest.

Alex is skittish about starting a relationship with another actress. His last dating relationship ended when his girlfriend left him for a bigger stage. Dani is talented. Will she also leave him?

A jealous star makes Dani’s life miserable. And how does her adoptive mom feel about her search for her brother?

This story drew me in immediately. I kept reaching for the novel to find out what happened next even when I needed to be doing other things. The characters are realistic and believable.
