Joanna Davidson Politano: A Midnight Dance

 By Kelly Bridgewater

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.


My Thoughts:

A Midnight Dance by Joanna Davidson Politano is a dark Victorian novel thrown in the world of ballet. Filled with intrigue and a hunt for the truth from the past, the heroine seeks to find out the answers to who she really is and what actually draws her closer as the story dives deeper. I loved watching the hunt for the individual desire and learning who they actually are. The story features a mystery that was nicely handled and had many different layers to unfold as the story moved along. Diving into the world of Victorian ballet was different, yet interesting all at the same time. There is some romance but it nicely shadows the plot of the story. Overall, A Midnight Dance by Joanna Davidson Politano is an exciting novel with many different endings that I enjoyed watching.

I received a complimentary copy of A Midnight Dance by Joanna Davidson Politano from Revell Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
