For Fans Of
Sheryl’s Last Stand is the first in the Bellydancing and Beyond series - a satirical look at romantic comedy.
Sheryl has seen better days; but now, at the wrong side of thirty-five she has lost it all and must start again. Not alone; but under the watchful eye of her mother, her sister and various friends who have known her since she was in nappies.
How does she cope?
With a newly discovered passion for belly dancing Sheryl sets out to chase her fantasies. But with a teacher like Nefertiti, and mother like Beatrice chasing your fantasies is easier said than done…
Sheryl’s last Stand is a comedy for women who love to laugh, believe in romance but like it served with a bit of reality.
I’ve read this twice and really enjoyed it both times. Kerrie has managed to make her characters well-rounded and full bodied.
This was enjoyable on different levels for me. I identified with the bellydancers, recognising many traits in dancers I’ve come across in my life as a dance student. On a general level, the character lives might seem so bizarre, yet believable, so you’re bent on reading on to see what they get up to next. I love the type of books where you have many different stories all converging together at the end in a grand finale - and along the way, the twists are startling and hilarious. I would definitely recommend this amusing and “novel” novel to dancers and non-dancers alike, well worth the reading-time.
