Book Review: The Wedding Dance By S.J. McCoy 2


The Wedding Dance

By S.J. McCoy





Missy Malone is about to marry Dan Benson. You are cordially invited to attend the wedding, in Las Vegas.

As you might expect, these two will encounter a few bumps on the way to their big day. But this is Missy and Dan—you know they’ll overcome any obstacle in their path. Their friends will all be with them on their journey toward wedded bliss. The question is: which of them will be able to overcome some pretty major obstacles of their own?

You’ll have to accept the invitation, and join the gang in Vegas to find out who else is getting married, who isn’t, and who’s expecting a baby!

This book is intended for adult readers 18+

The Wedding Dance is NOT intended to be read as a stand alone novel. This book is for my lovely readers who have enjoyed Summer Lake books 1-7. It’s a chance to join Missy and Dan for their wedding, and to visit with each of the couples from the first seven books in the series.

Favorite Quotes:


“I didn’t say a woman asks for what she wants.  She tells him what she wants.  Men are simple creatures.  They’re like dogs.  If you give them a clear command, tell them what you want, they go off and do it and they’re all proud of themselves for pleasing you.  If you don’t spell it out in no uncertain terms, they go off and do things by themselves, and it’s usually something you don’t like.  Then you’re pissed at them, they’re pissed at themselves, because they hate to screw up, and they’re also pissed at you because they were trying to please you and you’re still not happy.”


My Review:


The Wedding Dance is the first of this delightful series that is not a stand-alone volume.  Instead, it provides a detailed update and continuation of the previous story-lines of all the prior installments, and intersects and connects the couples and supporting characters during the planning, preparation, and finally the attendance of a Las Vegas wedding.  The plot is quite active with many new story-lines and heart-felt moments.  I enjoyed it from beginning to end and am already looking forward to the next installment.  Poor Ben, his story is long overdue.

About S.J. McCoy



Hi, I’m SJ. A coffee addict, lover of chocolate and drinker of good red wines. I’m a lost soul and a hopeless romantic. Reading and writing are necessary parts of who I am. Though perhaps not as necessary as coffee! I can drink coffee without writing, but I can’t write without coffee.

I grew up loving romance novels, my first boyfriends were book boyfriends, but life intervened, as it tends to do, and I wandered down the paths of non fiction for many years. My life changed completely a couple of years ago and I returned to Romance to find my escape.

I write ‘Sweet N Steamy’ stories because to me there is enough angst and darkness in real life. My favorite romances are happy escapes with a focus on fun, friendships and happily-ever-afters, just like the ones I write.

These days I live in beautiful Montana, the last best place. If I’m not reading or writing you’ll find me just down the road in the park – Yellowstone. I have deer, eagles and the occasional bear for company, and I like it that way :0)
