Overview

Rachel Stanhope tries to see the good in everyone. But Josh Reegan tests even her good graces when they meet outside her Arlington, Virginia, dance studio in 1951. He’s attractive, yet his cynicism and cockiness are hard to tolerate. A journalist and former World War II Air Force pilot, Josh considers ballroom dancing a frivolous waste of time. Although Rachel’s confident nature is a refreshing challenge, he wouldn’t tangle with her if his newspaper hadn’t assigned him to cover her studio’s competition in New York City. Between the melodrama of ballroom antics and the real drama of political corruption, Rachel and Josh have their hands full. The last thing either of them expects is mutual need and support. But once they stop dancing around the truth, the results are unforgettable.

What do you when your "perfect match" seems less than perfect? Rachel and Josh's first encounter doesn't go well and the interactions that follow seem to end on less than a perfect note. However, the attraction is mutual and the challenges they encounter would test any relationship. Through honesty and sincere forgiveness, wounds of the past can be overcome and new love can grow. Trish brings out human imperfections in her characters one can relate to. Her writing clearly portrays the struggle of trying so hard and yet coming up short. The story is smooth flowing, filled with lively action, and many twists and turns. Unforgettable is a wonderful story that will warm your heart, lift your spirit, and let you dream

Trish Perry has created yet another story that entertains while it inspires. The strength of her characterization and setting description in Unforgettable pulled me back in time, to the 1950s. I enjoyed the balance of the creative world of ballroom dancing and the dramatic, harsher world of political corruption and intrigue. This is another Trish Perry novel that has earned its place on my "keeper" shelf.

In 1951 outside her Arlington, Virginia dance studio Rachel Stanhope mutters in frustration while pacing back and forth on the sidewalk as her employee Betty fails to arrive with the keys to open up before the junior high school class begins. Moms dump the kids on her and one male arrives with two children. Former WWII pilot reporter Josh Reegan drops off his sister's children, but not before he insults Rachel about that artsy thing. She detests his sarcastic arrogance and pessimism. Josh believes ballroom dancing is an inane activity only for the rich and stupid. Still he finds her upbeat nurturing attitude totally opposite the cynics he normally meets due to his profession. In fact he is a cynic when it comes to humanity after his combat and his journalist experiences. He is here because his editor assigned him to do an article on her studio's competition in New York City. However, while the ballroom dance contest occurs, he investigates government corruption at the same time they continue their tango of love; as each finds the other Unforgettable. This is a terrific inspirational historical romance that brings to life 1951 with intriguing little tidbits like pregnant Betty having to give up dancing because the prevalent medical belief of the era is that women carrying needed rest. The enjoyable story line is character driven as the support cast especially their respective extended families, the students and several other key players are fully developed. However, the tale belongs to the dance instructor who sees God's world as a half filled cup needing to be topped and the reporter who sees a half empty cup needing to be drank as they foxtrot to When I Fall In Love.
