The Last Dance

Synopsis

Why we love it:

Fiona McIntosh’s latest spellbinding romance captivated us from its compelling start to its intriguing journey through 1930s London, Berlin and Morocco. With its steady build-up of tension and suspense, The Last Dance had us greedily turning the pages, impatient to know what was coming next.

Stella Myles is a proud young woman whose life suddenly takes a tragic turn when her beloved parents take their own lives after suffering catastrophic failure in the great 1930s crash. Life takes another dramatic twist when she meets a mysterious stranger at a dance.

Stella is plunged into the world of the rich and privileged when she becomes the tutor of two wealthy young women. But the change of fortune doesn’t last as she falls head over heels with the married stranger, and his wife and eldest daughter – as well as world events – threaten to tear her world apart once again.

Fiona McIntosh is a prolific Australian author and travel writer who has wowed her growing legion of fans with bestsellers such as Fields of Gold and Nightingale.

We loved the twists and turns of this fascinating plot and are behind the formidable heroine, Stella, every step of the way. She’s reminiscent of our favourite literary heroines of the era, only feistier, sexier and more independent. So slip under the covers with Fiona McIntosh’s latest. You’ll be so glad you did.
