Belinda Jones is not an author I was familiar with before this novel. Living La Vica Loca was a book that appealed greatly to me on my last trip to the library. Firstly the cover is really visually appealing to me - totally girly with lots of pink and featuring a couple dancing in the streets. It looked fun, flirty and just what I needed. A bit of light reading. The novel features two women who both work in theatre. Beth is a dancer who is struggling to hit the big time in London, whereas mousy Carmen is happy in her job as a costume designer, but is having a rough time romantically because of an abusive boyfriend, Lee. Beth has really struck bottom, agreeing ... Read the complete review

Beth is an out-of-work dancer struggling to hit the big time and her friend Carmen has recently exited an abusive relationship. When Beth spies an advertisement looking for amateur dancers to take part in a reality television show, she hits on a plan to use Carmen's backstory and appearance to help her cause.

Carmen and Beth are best friends who are sick of the way their life has been lately. Carmen has only just broken free from a bad relationship and Beth is realising that her dream of becoming a famous dancer is ebbing away slowly.

Soon the girls are tango-ing in Buenos Aires, learning to dance with matadors in Seville and salsa-ing in Havana and having a ball of a time. They're still missing one vital ingredient: love. But are the girls ready to set their hearts free ... Read the complete review

I have recently read and reviewed Out of The Blue by Belinda Jones which I enjoyed and so when I saw she had released a new book, Living la Vida Loca, which was calling me from the shelves with its pink, glitzy snazzy cover how could I walk away! Best friends Carmen and Beth are both involved in dance theatre although their jobs are completly different. Carmen works backstage with the costume designs whilst Beth is on the stage dancing her heart out. Things become hard for Beth when she can no longer find work for dance as companies are looking for something new and fresh. It is when trailing through the job section the girls come ...
