The Dancing Floor Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Dancing Floor

After the death of her parents Heather Tradescent decides to follow up an ambition she had with her father and visit historic gardens in England. This exercise develops into someone attempting to murder Heather. The characters in this book are beautifully crafted as is the plot. Though in some ways the idea of a plain young woman being welcomed into the family, and offered a job because her name is recognised does not ring true it can be overlooked if the reader enjoys this type of romantic thriller.
