About my blog

When I was a little girl, I struggled to read. Reading did not come naturally to me; however, over the last 30 years I have become an avid reader, I love books. I love LDS (Latter Day Saint) Historical fiction, I love romance, I love biographies, I love stories of hope, and ways to help. I will post books that I have read, ones that have warmed my heart and given me hope!

About the Book:
What turns an angry adolescent and then a defiant teenager into an indomitable businesswoman who faced so many obstacles in life that she defied all odds for success?

Written with heart-pounding honesty and delicious humor, Dancing in the Storm takes the reader along on an emotional roller coaster ride through Shelly Maguire s multi-faceted career from the classroom to the boardroom. An entrepreneur, founder of multiple start-up companies and a skin care developer for several large companies, Shelly takes you inside the world of business, live TV (HSN) and infomercials. This TV and radio personality spells out her formula for success. Think like a child - - they never take no for an answer. You ll be startled and amazed at her confessions and grit, and then wish she were your best friend.

My thoughts and review:
Before I begin my review, I would like to apologize to Ms. Maguire for taking so long to post this review. I was supposed to have it done the end of July, then in August. I have had a crazy life, and just finished this reading. Second I would like to thank Media Guest for the opportunity to review this book. I was given a free copy of the book for my honest review.

I received this book while I was away on vacation this summer. I had great plans to finish it when my family went to on condo in the Mountains of Colorado; however, that weekend it rained and I found myself playing games all weekend to entertain my children.

I eventually started reading the book and was intrigued from the start. While reading the book I did become a little bored with the correspondence that sounded like the same thing repeated by different people, and there was a few times the story dragged on for me; however, over all I loved the story. I found the story heartwarming, genuine and filled with suspense and most especially love! I enjoyed getting to know Shelly Maguire, she is not only a go getter, she is such a kind person that it seemed everyone who knew her was drawn to her.  I could not imagine my life with Shelly's trials, she is couragous and strong. She shows the reader what hard work, determination and faith can do! 

I did find it interesting that Ms. Maguire was a typical teenager, and let nothing stand in her way. When I really started to settle in and read the book where I could not put the book down is when Frankie enters the picture. The relationship between Shelly and Frankie was so crazy, refreshing, and fun! I loved the book and would recommend it to anyone. With all the things this world has to offer, and so much negativity on television and in print, this story will warm your soul and remind you what is good about life!
