About the Author

Katie Mettner writes inspirational romance from a little house in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. She's the author of the four part epic family saga, The Sugar Series, Sugar's Song being runner up for sweet romance in the eFestival of Words contest. Her other romance series, The Northern Lights Series and the Snowberry Holiday Series, are both set in Minnesota and are a mix of new adult and romantic suspense. Katie lives with her soulmate, whom she met online at Thanksgiving and married in April. Together they share their lives with their three children and two leopard geckos. After suffering an especially bad spill on the bunny hill in 1989, Katie became an amputee in 2011, giving her the much needed time to pen her first novel, Sugar's Dance. With the release of Sugar's story, Katie discovered the unfilled need for disabled heroes and heroines! Her stories are about empowering people with special circumstances to find the one person who will love them because of their abilities, not their inabilities. Katie has a slight addiction to Twitter and blogging, with a lessening aversion to Pinterest now that she quit trying to make the things she pinned.

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"

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.

Every so often I read a book that makes me think, "I wish I had written that!" As an author, always hoping to hone my craft and enjoy a good read, reading Katie Mettner's book brought me to tears, made me laugh, and affirmed that home, family, and love are gifts from God having more to do with heart-ties than family. So if you want to discover how to overcome and move on, if you need to set aside what hurt so you can heal and find the person who's your home, this story will do all that and much, much more! I've already downloaded the second book in this amazing series! Though I have other books to read, I'll start this one now cause I can't wait to find out what happens next to Sugar, Van and all the other people in Sugars life!

Always writing about choices and how God can help us change, Paula Rose Michelson wrote the Amazon Best Selling Christian self-help book "How Did We Become Angry?" That book and her three sweet Christian fictions with a Messianic twist and a hint of history: "Beginning Anew: The Naomi Chronicles" and "Casa de Naomi: The House of Blessing, Books One and Two", are available on Amazon.

Sugar's Dance is a sweet and uplifting story. Sugar's life was shattered ten years ago on an icy bridge when a semi struck her family car, killing her parents and dance partner. She struggles with survivor's guilt and grief. Meanwhile, her friends were kidnapped by a dangerous drug kingpin and the police stake out Sugar's house. Sugar has to find the key and the evidence to put the druglord away, but not before losing her heart to her bodyguard, a charming Irishman named Van.

This story is about love, and how it triumphs over despair and grief. A significant subplot deals with disability and organ donation. Reading this book has made me think about organ donation and how by the death of one person, seven people can get off the transplant waiting lists and have a chance at life again.

Three recipes are given at the end of the book as an added bonus. A heartwarming story to be read in a cozy cabin in front of the fireplace.

I paid for this book this is my 3rd time reposting my review AMAZON Do not DELETE!

First thoughts after…….
Thank goodness there is more to the Sugar’s world because this was just a little taste and I’m dying for more!!!!

How Distracted Did I Get?
Sugar is a strong character with wit and humor that I enjoyed thoroughly! She is addicted to coffee maybe even more than I am if that’s possible. With fascinating recipes and a handsome Irishman this story can’t go wrong. Sugar has some rocks to climb to help her through a tough time and Van is the man to do that. (Did I mention the handsome Irishman?) Sugar’s Dance is wonderfully woven story that is difficult to put down. My husband asked if I had a new appendage the book was so attached to the now well-loved book!
