A Midnight Dance by Joanna Davidson Politano {Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

All theater romances are tragedies. Ella Blythe knows this. Still, she cannot help but hope her own story may turn out different than most--and certainly different than the tragic story of the Ghost of Craven Street Theater. Yet as she struggles to maintain her tenuous place in the ever-shrinking ballet company, win the attentions of principal dancer Philippe, and avoid company flirt Jack, Ella cannot deny the uncanny feeling that her life is mirroring that of the dead ballerina.

Is she dancing ever closer to the edge of her own tragic end? Or will the secrets that are about to come to light offer release from the past?

Mystery and romance make the perfect dance partners in this evocative story from fan-favorite Joanna Davidson Politano.

Joanna Davidson Politano is the award-winning author of Lady Jayne DisappearsA Rumored FortuneFinding Lady Enderly, and The Love Note. She loves tales that capture the colorful, exquisite details in ordinary lives and is eager to hear anyone's story. She lives with her husband and their two kids in a house in the woods near Lake Michigan. You can find her at 

Though I have never danced myself, I have always been enchanted by ballet ever since I was a little girl. I have also previously enjoyed books by Joanna Davidson Politano as well and find that she has such a unique way of telling a story, so when I saw that her newest novel was about ballet, I was all the more excited to check it out. While I must say that for me, this was not as great as some of her others that I have read... that does not mean that it was not still a fantastic read! This had such a beautiful blend of mystery and romance and drama that you couldn't help but be drawn into. I particularly loved the message of faith weaved throughout the story so beautifully as well. Overall, this is beautiful story and one that fans of historical fiction are sure to enjoy.
