Overview

Will the events of one snowy November night haunt her forever?

Grab a cup of joe and meet Tula DuBois, Sugar to everyone who loves her, an accomplished ballroom dance instructor living in the Twin Ports of Lake Superior. From the outside Sugar appears to have it all, a successful business and a wonderful family, but behind closed doors Sugar's emotional walls are crumbling as the events of one snowy November night ten years ago fill her nights with terror. As she struggles to keep her sanity from slipping away she is taunted by the never-ending mantra of why. Why is she still here? Why was she spared?

When Drug Task Force Agent Donovan Walsh arrives in Duluth, Minnesota, there is no doubt in his mind that it's the tip of the end of the world and he prays that his assignment will be short so he can escape back home to sunny, warm Texas. That is until he meets his latest protected witness, Sugar. His job is simple -- protect her from a madman determined to engage her in a dangerous tango. All it takes is one dance across the floor and Agent Walsh quickly discovers there is nothing simple about Sugar.

As the gales of November blow early, Van finds himself drawn to Sugar as he leads her through a tender dance of grief and guilt. The sadness in her eyes when she thinks no one is looking compels him to help her rediscover her love for dancing and the reasons why she was left behind.

As one storm eases another intensifies and Sugar is pulled back into a high stakes promenade with a psychopath hellbent on destroying her family and her town. Sugar must summon her strength and give the performance of a lifetime as she becomes an unwilling partner in a treacherous dance of drugs, kidnapping and family betrayal. It's a dance where one misstep could leave her fighting for her life!

As winter descends upon Lake Superior, Sugar will waltz through the darkness to find faith, hope, and the greatest of these, love....

    This will tug at your heartstrings....

    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.

    Sugar's Dance is an incredible work of art in book form! Author

    Sugar's Dance is an incredible work of art in book form! Author Katie Mettner did such a great job with her characters (and not just her hero & heroine, Tula 'Sugar' Dubois and Donovan 'Van' Walsh)that by the time I finished the book I felt like I knew them all personally. I was privy to their thoughts, desires, flaws, sense of humor, values, and strengths. The mystery and danger surrounding Sugar's lodge was revealed a little at a time, keeping me glued to the story to find out what was lurking around the next corner. Loved the setting! Ms. Mettner's love for Lake Superior and the surrounding area came through in her writing, as did her passion for the life-saving gift of organ donation (MAMBOS - Miracles Are Made By Organ Sharing). I loved this story from beginning to end and will definitely read this author again.

    Author makes it area detailed which adds to the charm.

    Very touching, emotional story about family, love, life and hope. Was a little wordy in areas and needed more editing for punctuation and flow but the story rose above those details and made you want to finish it. Having grown up in the area, I loved the detail to location.

    You must read this one!

    Great book! I finished it with tears and smiles and happiness in my heart. Sugar is a woman to admire and one most women can easily relate to or realize they have a friend or relative like her.

    As I read Sugar's Dance, I was reminded of another author who weaves great stories of romance, tragedy and local lore and fare...Nicolas Sparks. I much prefer Mrs. Mettner's ending to one of Mr. Sparks, though.

    Thanks for sharing Sugar with the world!

    Wonderful book from a new author!!!

    What a great read! I enjoyed getting to know Sugar and spending time with her in northern Minnesota. She is someone I would love to meet at Starbucks for a coffee. The book is a great blend of romance, drama, suspense, and comedy. If you want a read that is just a wonderful story of redemption, love, and family this is your book.
