Heartwarming, funny and FAB-U-LOUS! ― Woman magazine
A story that sparkles on the page – I absolutely loved it. — Milly Johnson
An offbeat, funny and heartwarming romantic novel from the fabulous King of Strictly, Craig Revel Horwood.
Set against the colourful boho backdrop of London’s Camden in the 1990s, Craig Revel Horwood’s first novel, Dances and Dreams on Diamond Street, tells the story of an unlikely family of friends who each rent a room in a ramshackle six-bedroom, four-storey townhouse. Like any family, the residents of Diamond Street sometimes fights and often act up but when the chips are down, they’re there for each other in an instant – usually brandishing a cheap bottle of booze, and the offer of an impromptu kitchen disco.
Presided over by the wise-cracking but warm-hearted patriarch of the family, Danny Hall, a professional dancer turned choreographer, the novel follows a year in the life of the inhabitants of Diamond Street, rough diamonds one and all, as they try to achieve their dreams – with unexpected, heart-warming and sometimes hilarious results.
GUEST REVIEW FROM CHRIS!
Today I am delighted to be able to hand over my blog to my mum, Chris, so that she can share with you her review for Dances & Dreams on Diamond Street by the fabulous Craig Revel Horwood!
“I loved this book!
It was a complete delight to read, it had a wonderfully refreshing storyline that was full of hopes and dreams.
I clicked with all of the characters both in their private and professional lives and loves seeing the relationships change and develop as the book progressed.
It was very well written and a really “readable” book – I really enjoyed it all!
It is 5 stars from me for this one – very highly recommended – it was a complete pleasure to read!”
