Mini-Review: Last Dance at Jitterbug Lounge

Last Dance At Jitterbug Lounge

Genre: Contemporary Fiction
Pages: 441 (paperback)

Sometimes the sweet sounds of remembered melodies can reignite the heart...

My Rating:

My Review:
Jack and Claire Crabtree were once happily married, but separate interests have each left them with the feeling that the other is no longer the one.  Claire refuses to move into the brand new house Jack built for the family and she believes he spends too much time with a colleague.  Then Jack is called back home to Oklahoma to see Bud, his sick grandfather.  Claire follows.

In this story we are split between two separate stories and relationships.  Bud and Geri Crabtree (Jack's grandparents) and Jack and Claire Crabtree.  This is a story about getting back to your roots and finding out what really keeps a family together.  I loved loved loved this story.  Saying anything would give everything away so trust me.  Characters were wonderful and the problems are something every couple can identify.  

P.S. I'm trying a different format for my reviews. I want to have a review for must books and mini-review for those books that it's just so hard to present without spoiling everything.  Hopefully this enough.  How do you handle these situations?  Great book but I don't want to ruin it?  Mini-reviews or spoiler warnings?
