No surprise to me then that the dance scenes were the parts of Don't Mean A Thing that I loved best. The next thing I enjoyed was the Darwin Australian tropical setting. I really liked how the author bought such authenticity to the tropical setting. Little details such as when Macie is getting ready to go out for the annual RAAF ball, and puts on stockings and a gown... and has to then stand on her bed and put her face to the air conditioner to cool down before she goes out. The descriptions of life and career for a 30-ish woman on a military base was also a great eye-opener for me.
I thought this was a really solid debut by Renee Conoulty, and I absolutely loved the final scene.
Even if you're not a swing dancer, the novel has enough romance, character growth, and plot to carry you through to the exciting end. Don't miss this fun read.
At first glance this novel appears to be all about romance, and trust me, there’s plenty of that to go around. Macie falls hard for Matt, even though she’s had her heart broken before by a man who wasn’t willing to be with a strong, independent woman. So, she’s very concerned about Matt’s intentions, and whether she sees a future with him. Rachael has plenty of love life to go around. So do a lot of other secondary characters, lending into the romance.
However, I felt as though the strongest vein was the one pertaining to Macie’s passions in life. She loves to travel, she loves her job. She’s worked hard to get to where she’s at, having a hard time coming to grips with the possibility of having to give it all up for someone. That’s what ruined her prior relationship. Will it be the final straw for Matt?
I could totally relate to Macie. I suppose most of us could. I can think of several times in my life when I’ve given up something I’ve wanted or felt I needed in order to maintain the status quo, to keep others happy. I think the real work happens when you find a way to compromise, so both people in the relationship are able to fulfill their passions in life. It’s not always easy, it doesn’t always happen, but you can always hope. And, Macie has to try and find balance, or it will never work.
Life has a way of changing up the things that matter most to us, our life goals and passions often pliable. I appreciated Renee Conoulty’s take on what it means to find who you really are in not only a relationship with other people, but in the relationship that really matters most; the one you have with yourself. I don't think there are enough motivating novels out there that support a character who tries hard at achieving her goals, never giving up. It's incredibly motivating!
