Marguerite and Marcel are two different people from two completely different worlds. After loosing her husband, Marguerite realises that whilst living her boring suburban life with her uptight husband, life has passed her by. Marcel has lost his way. After spending sixty years with the love of his life Nora, he is just going through the motions. When Marguerite and Marcel's worlds collide, they will start to question everything they thought they believed.

I have really mixed feelings about this book. I loved getting to read about older people finding romance and how this effected their adult children. This aspect of the story was both heartwarming and heartbreaking. I also loved seeing two people who have more life behind them then they do in front of them, start living life to the fullest.

This book definitely ticked a lot of boxes.

Unfortunately for me, something was missing. I felt more chemistry between Marcel and Nora then I did Marcel and Marguerite. Now this is understandable given that Marcel and Nora were married for sixty years, but this hindered my ability to connect with Marcel and Marguerite.

I also had real issues with the writing jumping between characters. I know that this was so that the reader could get to know both characters through their own voices, but it just didn't work for me. I found it really jarring. I would start to get attached and the story would start to flow and then I would be jolted to another characters story and voice.

This book was a pretty quick read and did have some truly wonderful and tender moments, I just didn't love it.

I can definitely see an audience for this book and I think a lot of people will absolutely love it. I'm just sorry that im not one of them.

Now Let's Dance by Karine Lambert is an unexpected love story, filled with the joys and despairs of growing older.
