Sugar's Dance is a story that is unique in that you know the author is writing from a very personal place, and she does it so eloquently.

I think the title for this review just about says it all but if you read this review i would say you do need to get this. I see it priced at 99 cents and i am suprised by that as this is a wonderful story that i wouldnt mind paying alot more to read
But more than just a story there is something about this tale that sets it apart from most books i have read to date. The character of Sugar is so well written and so involving that it seems like a real person has been created. It is alot like getting to know someone from the start and as the story evolves you find you have things in common with her, share in the good times and the bad, the highs and lows and there are plenty of both. The choice of first person in the story was very clever in that it draws you in and you become part of the tale.
Ultimately the main character becomes so very likeable that you will miss her once the story ends.
And im paraphrasing here "God bless great authors"

Life, love, pain, healing - it's a roller-coaster ride of emotions. This book is written from the heart and you can feel it in every word. Ms Mettner will bring tears to your eyes and also make your emotions leap. You will fall in love with Sugar (Tula) and Van, but find yourself holding your breath as the things life has thrown at them come between them. It's a love story with heart-stopping moments, with a plot that brings it all together very nicely and some wonderful, real-life characters. A wonderful read and I was delighted to see a couple of the recipes featured in the book at the back! I'll be sampling Chicago Kraut Dogs for the first time this weekend.

Katie spun a story taking you on a journey of grief and rebirth that makes you want to step in and take all Sugar's problems away while enjoying the ways the author makes you part of her life. I could actually envision the scenes as they unfolded with the beautiful way the author took the time to entice you with setting the scene. The lack of foul language was also a definite plus for me.

This is one of those books that you can't put down until it's finished, and you're glad you bought a copy instead of borrowing it because you know you'll want to read it again and again. Sugar's Dance is such a beautiful story about a woman, broken and shattered after losing her entire family and unable to put her life back together despite an enormous outpouring of support, until she meets a man who turns it all around because he falls instantly in love with her.

I laughed, I cried, I related and most of all, I learned. My Kindle's bookmarks feature got a workout with this novel because there were so many beautiful passages, I didn't want to forget them.

Sugar's Dance is a story that is unique in that you know the author is writing from a very personal place, and she does it so eloquently. Her writing style is very touching, graceful and heart warming. You will not finish this book without understanding her pain, triumph and why the difference between how the world sees you and how you see yourself is so important, especially in her case.

Tula DuBois, or Sugar, is an amputee. In a tragic car accident, she lost her leg and a whole lot more. For all intents and purposes, she essentially lost her life despite the fact that she was the only survivor. The irony is never lost on her. In the beginning of the story Sugar battles with herself as the anniversary of the tragedy approaches. But this year marks the tenth year since the accident and this time she can't do it with the same support. Her breaking point becomes evident as her pseudo family watches the nightmares, starvation and isolation take over her. Until Van comes into the picture and shows her that she is worthy of all the beauty life has to offer her, including himself.

Format: Paperback
Tula DuBois AKA Sugar is a well known ballroom dance teacher. Sugar appears to be living an ideal life by having a successful business along with love and support from family and friends. However, one dreadful snowy November night is keeping her hidden emotional state in a state of turmoil. As she struggles to cope with her emotional problems, Drug Task Force Agent Donovan Walsh arrives in Duluth, Minnesota on a special assignment. It is there that he meets a reliable witness to his assignment; Sugar. Once he learns about her and her involvement in his assignment, he must protect her from people who want her dead. It is there that the dances between life and death occurs as Sugar and Agent Walsh dance their way around the evilness. As time goes on, Walsh starts to fall for Sugar. As their love flourishes, their love soon turns into a triangle of trouble as the evilness keeps interfering. This book surely is a dance because there are so many events happening all at once yet it's a real easy read because Katie Mettner keeps the events real simple as well as the characters. Real people means simple people to understand. My favorite part of the book is the title. As I said before, the book is really a dance because since Sugar is a dance teacher, she probably sees life as a big dance; obstacles to go through or dance around but in the end, the experience is very satisfying or is it?
