    One thought on “By Leaps and Bounds ”

    1. Leaps and Bounds through the stars.This is the third book about dance that I have read recently and each book gave me a more vivid piece of the whole. Jackie Diamond's book grabs you and holds you throughout the entire story about relationships and making dreams come true. People trying to find what they want in their life and fulfilling their dream, combined with meeting life's challenges and changing and growing each step of the way. Jackie is a lovely writer, writing each character so that yo [...]

    2. Kerry Guthrie was a rising ballerina, engaged to a handsome up-and-coming orchestra conductor, when her life suddenly took a drastic turn. A car accident shattered her legs and her ability to dance, and her fiance slowly drifted away Kerry became a dance instructor, and tries to live vicariously through her students. Chris Layne is a cop and single father. His daughter is Kerry's brightest star. When Kerry and Chris randomly meet outside of the dance school, Chris takes a chance and asks her out [...]

    3. It’s a story about ballet. Honestly, for me just that is a reason to not give it any less than 4 stars. But it’s also a story about struggling with having to realize that your dreams might not be what you always thought they were, and that’s what made this to a 5-star story. There’s a scene at the end of the story, in which Kerry realizes that her dream was right in front of her all along, that was so beautiful it made me cry.There are three main characters here: you have Kerry, who is a [...]

    4. "By leaps and bounds" is a great novel about discovering yourself and finding love when you least expect it.Kerry Guthrie was a ballerina in her prime, when an accident ends her career. Now she is leaving in LA teaching ballerinas all with the hopes that she can one day return to her career in New York as a prima ballerina. Now 28 Kerry has to decide if she really wants to make a comeback, or if she wants to pursue a new career as a choreographer.Chris Layne is the father of Kerry's top student [...]

    5. This was a very sweet story. You could feel the love between father and daughter and the growing attracting between Kerry and Chris! I found Melanie to be a bit of a brat in the middle of the book but hey she’s a teenager that’s what they do. I LOVED Suzie – she was just so sweet and just wanted to dance. Jaime on the other hand I still don’t think he redeemed himself at all. I loved the coming of age story for both kids and the adults, finding out that dreams do change and grow. Good Bo [...]

    6. I really enjoyed this book. It is very well written with some great characters. The issues experienced were realistic and you can relate to them. The love story between the main characters built slowly and was never vulgar like some romance novels. This was more than just a love story though. It was about changing life goals and dreams, coming of age, self-worth and acceptance, first love, artistic passion, and much more. Is it some great literary master-piece – no, but it is a great read.

    7. This book was okay for what it was, but I'm not a huge romance fan, and something about it just rubbed me the wrong way. I'm not sure how old the author is, but I'm reasonably certain teenagers don't REALLY act like that maybe I'm just still too close in age to teenagers to think of them as that stereotypical. Then again, I found the main character (who is much closer to me in age than any of the other characters) to be somewhat frumpy and old. Anyway, the storyline was enjoyable enough; I didn' [...]

    8. I was hoping to like this book more, but it was just okay for me. The main character Kerry got on my nerves constantly wallowing in her self-pity. She was always trying to please other people and not make herself happy. Being a former dancer, I was hoping there would be more ballet/dance in this book as opposed to romance. Oh well. I still enjoyed the story.

    9. Eh. Kinda cheesy. Ok, it was pretty cheesy. And the teenagers didn't act like teenagers. Oh, and the 28 year old main character seemed dowdy and older. Hey, it was a free Kindle book on . What do you expect? At least the ballet parts of it were enjoyable.

    10. I really enjoyed this book and would read another Jacqueline Diamond novel. Easy,light reading with dancing at its heart. Somewhat predictable outcome but beautiful nonetheless. The author has done her homework on her chosen subject and it shows.

    11. It was good but I feel that author went overboard with using adjectives. But I like the plot, so good storyline. :)

    12. Easy read, good for teens. A nice story about a girl who couldn't dance any longer but found a place in life.
