REVIEW: Eva Scott’s ‘Red Dust Dancer’
Red Dust Dancer
Everyone deserves a second chance—and another dance.
Tamsin Cooper’s career as a Parisian showgirl is coming to an end. Nearly thirty, with no boyfriend and no prospects of a family of her own, she decides to take up her inheritance—her Uncle Ted’s cattle farm in Queensland.
Farm life seems to be suiting her until Tamsin discovers that Uncle Ted had a secret—and her sexy neighbour Angus Walker helped him keep it.
Faced with losing her farm and her heart, Tamsin returns to what she knows best, dancing, and starts teaching the residents of Elliott’s Crossing how to get in touch with their inner showgirl.
She may have the dance moves, but can she shimmy past a forty-year-old lie and a betrayal of lost love to find her place—and rediscover love—in this country town?
What AusRom Today thought:
As expected, Eva Scott writing paints a dramatic and vivid imagery, this time of the challenges Tamsin Cooper faces while adapting from city to country life. Lies, secrets, and romance ensue and we see Tamsin pushed to new limits however being the tenacious character she is we see her quite quickly personify the rural attitude of adapt and carry on. Coming from a dance background, we see how the discipline and hard work of her previous life creates the building blocks for her new rural life and that certainly endears her as a character.
A light-hearted story of second chances, finding strength within yourself, and of course finding love.
