Although the story line is a little hard to imagine (cowboys taking a ballet class), I have to say it was worth reading because it made me laugh out loud several times. Just thinking about some of the scenes right now makes me smile! Lizette Baker is coming to Dry Creek to open a dance (ballet) studio, but the folks of Dry Creek think she is coming to open a bakery. There is confusion, laughter, romance and a Nutcracker performance like I am sure has never been done before. Far-fetched, you bet, but laughter is good medicine, so you will feel better having read this story.
This book is part of the Dry Creek Series. It could easily be read as a stand alone, although if you read the series in order it will help you get to know the characters of the town much better.
