Review: Dancing and Doughnuts by Rachel Kovaciny {Blog Tour + Giveaway}

Hello, my lovelies! I am SO pleased to be participating in this blog tour for my dearest blogging friend, Rachel. You may remember when I helped with the cover reveal...well, I am here to tell you that I have now read the book and it is a delight! Even though westerns aren't usually my genre of choice, I will always make an exception for Rachel.

But enough about my excitement! Let's get on with it, shall we?

My Review

Oh, friends. If you're in need of a sweet little story to make you grin, then I definitely recommend that you pick this one up! I may not love westerns, but I am now a fan of Jedediah Jones. His quaint way of talking, his "love" of apples, and just his gentleman-like manner of behavior sold me from chapter one. He made me grin so many times! :)

The whole story just feels energetic and fun. As if you really are enjoying an evening with dancing and doughnuts. And speaking of the title, there's certainly plenty of both in these pages! I liked the mystery to solve as well. As this is a western take on The Twelve Dancing Princesses, I rather enjoyed seeing the different ways Ms. Kovaciny incorporated pieces of the fairytale alongside her own creativeness. I wasn't certain at all who the culprit was, but I was right beside Jedediah as he worked out each new idea. I really just loved the way his mind worked! Seriously. He made me laugh, but he was always one step ahead of me.

This story utterly delighted me! It was just the happy I needed after the end of a long and busy day. It's light and fluffy with a bit of sweetness on the outside, just like it's namesake! (Also, I appreciated the nod to Shakespeare. Very appropriate! :) I think you'll like it too. Trust me.

  1. Awwwww. I'm so happy you liked it!

    And yes, there actually are several lines from Hamlet in this. The obvious ones that get mentioned, but I just kept tossing others in because they fit. I can't even remember them all anymore! And there's one oblique nod to Jane Austen too, just because... those are authors people were really familiar with at the time that *I* am familiar with too, so why not?


Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the internet! :)
