    Enjoyable, sweet, heart-warming.
    I love books with the central topic of family especially where everybody loves and supports their siblings unconditionally. The book has an unusual premise of three sisters, separated after the death of their mother when they were toddlers, finding each other when they are all in their late twenties and moving in to live together for year in order to get to know each other better. Add a wholesome romance between a local police officer/caring and protective

    Very enjoyable, warm and well written story about Shannon, who wants to get close to her 2 newfound sisters, and police officer Dylan who wants to protect his younger sister after a devastating attack. They meet when Dylan takes some dancing lessons with Shannon after losing a bet and hit it off.

    Family, love and overcoming your fears play a central role in this story with a Christian message that is not overbearing but quietly strong.

    I received an ARC via Edelweiss and this is my honest and
    It’s a crazy premise, but great story. Circumstances couldn’t be more high stakes and it makes it all the more savory for the readers. Delightful, emotional undertones shine through each page. 5/5 stars for a job well done.

    I love the idea of dancing - and this book feeds right in to that. Although, there isn't a whole heck of a lot of dancing that actually happens! Shannon is a lovely person who is starting a new business in a new town. She's moved to town with her two sisters, whom she had never met before the start of the story. She was adopted early in life and separated from her siblings. In this book we learn a lot about Shannon's sister Traci - but not as much about Kimber. Overall - the general theme of the ...more

    I actually really loved the plot of this book. It was a cute romance about a dance teacher falling in love with one of her students, but it also had family at the core. Shannon and her long lost sisters, Traci and Kimber, decide to move in together in Bridgeport, Ohio. Dylan is a cop who lives with his sister, Jen, and is taking care of her since she was assaulted a year ago. Family is really what ties this story together. Shannon is getting to know her sisters for the first time and it is all ...more

    *I received this ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

    Shannon, Traci, and Kimber were separated as children. Two of them were adopted, one grew up in a group home. When they finally find one another, they leave everything behind to live together for one year. A "getting to know you" year. As these three sisters are learning about one another, they become entwined with Dylan and his sister Jennifer, helping to overcome obstacles. Throw in a little falling in love and there's your story.

    As a dancer and romance novel lover, I really wanted to like this novel more than I did. I was ready for a slow-burn romance between Shannon and Dylan, and two dance classes in, I knew I was going to be disappointed. While there were many redeeming qualities about the writing and characters themselves, there was just too much going on to really get into the story and enjoy it. On one hand, you have Shannon trying to form new relationships with sisters she has just magically found and convinced ...more

    As usual, Shelley Shepard Gray gives us another addictive series surrounding characters that feel like best friends or family to us. In Shall We Dance, the first in a series of three, we are introduced to three sisters who are forging a relationship. Separated as young children and sharing the same mother, the girls work on becoming sisters by moving in together. Shall We Dance revolves around Shannon, a dance instructor. The girls move into the apartment above Shannon's dance studio in the ...more

    I received a digital ARC from Edelweiss of this title for an honest review.

    Shannon has recently discovered that she has two sisters that she was separated from when they were very young through separate adoptions. She convinces them both to move with her to Ohio and live together in a loft over the ballroom dancing studio she is opening. She's excited about connecting with her sisters and her new business. Enter Dylan. He's her new dance client, but he puts her off when he tells her that he's

    I enjoyed reading Shannon and Dylan's story as well as the secondary story of Shannon and her two sisters.
    Shannon and her sisters were separated when still small children by DCS and sent to different locations. Shannon convinced both sisters to live together for a year as they get to know each other.
    Dylan, who is a police officer, and Shannon's sisters' new partner, lost a bet and has to take dance lessons from Shannon. He's pleasantly surprised when he shows for late for his first lesson. The

    “Shall We Dance?” by Shelley Shepard Gray
    I really loved this story. If you like clean romance with a touch of police drama then I think you will really like this story too. A nice touch was the dance quotes at the beginning of each chapter. I would love to chat with you about this story… but then I would run the chance of spoiling the story for you… because discovering all the bits and pieces of the story is why we read our novels… Oops almost forgot to share that I received an ARC of this story

    What a great book! This is my first romance book by Shelley I have read. I normally read her Amish series. This was a very enjoyable book. That pulled you right into it right in the first chapter. Shannon is a dance teacher who was just recently reunited with her two sisters. While in the process of getting acquainted with her sisters, opening a dance studio, she falls in love. Such a heartwarming story. Excited for the next book in the series. I was gifted a copy by the author and this is my ...more

    Shelley has done it again! She has written something that sucks you in and hangs on til the last word of the last page! This book is amazing! The conflicts are real life relatable conflicts and the mystery is captivating! I could not put the book down! The book is full of love, forgiveness, new beginnings, new lives, strength, courage, and overcoming situations that have a hold on the lives of the characters! It is a wonderful read and I know any reader would love this engrossing work!

    I loved the author’s series Bridgeport Social Club, and couldn’t wait to being this book. This new series takes us back to Bridgeport. Where, thanks to Shannon Murphy from West Virginia, three sisters that never knew they existed, now have uprooted themselves and are living together in an apartment above Shannon’s dance studio.
    We meet police officer Dylan Lange when he looses a bet and is forced to take dance lessons with Shannon. But what he thought would be torture, changes when he meets
