    I too love a good movie musical! I adore all of those you listed and would add the awesome Tammy and the Bachelor and The Unsinkable Molly Brown!

  • On Dec 24, 2012, celticdebbie said: Love twin books

    Love twin books, I have twin boys and love a book with twins in it, there is the plus of having a character struggle with a handicap and over come it.

  • On Dec 22, 2012, SteelerGirl said: Cover Drew Me In First

    Had to read the blurb about this book because the cover had me as soon as I saw it. The story sounds so good. Would love to win this book.

    Could this sound any more intriguing! I have GOT to get my hands on this!!!

  • On Dec 15, 2012, Kareninnc said: Loved those films too

    What a great walk down the Hollywood Musicals memory lane. I think I saw everyone of those films mentions. I even liked the big production numbers like some of the dances in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

    This book by Pamela Sherwood sounds like a story I would really enjoy reading. Thanks for the giveaway.

    This sounds like it's going to be pulling at my heart strings. I love when a story does that.

  • On Dec 12, 2012, kcherubtx said: Thanks

    Congrats on the release of Waltz with a Stranger. I love the sound of it and can't wait to read it. I love musicals, especially the older ones. My former husband and I took dance lessons only to learn that he was tone deaf and danced on the off beat. We never did too much dancing.

  • On Dec 12, 2012, amberkateri said: Always

    Always love a chance to read a new book

  • On Dec 12, 2012, Pamela Sherwood said: And again--

    Orangepeacock, thanks for the congrats! I've taken some dance lessons myself, though alas, I'm not in Ginger Rogers' league! So I enjoy it vicariously through the likes of Mr. Astaire and his various partners.

  • On Dec 12, 2012, Pamela Sherwood said: Thank you all . . .

    jmcgaugh, thanks for the interest. I hope the book lives up to expectation.

    Monica, I think, when something has been around as long as the old musicals, it's easy to take them for granted. But the good thing is that they're still there, waiting to be discovered again. Glad you enjoyed the post!

    celticdebbie, I like books where characters have to overcome their handicaps too. It raises the stakes for them, personally.

    blakesmomma, I like the cover too. It's definitely grown on me since I first saw it.

    Bemiown, dancing in the moonlight with a handsome, perfect stranger is a favorite fantasy of many, I suspect.

    nsojka, the good kind of tears, I hope! :-)

    JannaShay, glad you like the sound of the book. Those elements you mention really are the stuff of classic romance--I only hope I've done them justice.

    pansypetal, thank you! I'm flattered--while I have written other things before--mainly reference articles and some short stories--Waltz with a Stranger is my first novel. Astaire is amazing, isn't he? Gene Kelly's no slouch, either, but for the purely romantic dance numbers, I prefer Fred! I hope Waltz with a Stranger does not disappoint, when it comes to dance and romance!

  • On Dec 12, 2012, Orangepeacock said: Dance

    I enjoy dancing as well, even though I have no talent for it. Lol

    What!? You are a first time author? Well congrats on your first book! I'm really looking forward to reading Waltz With a Stranger!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  • On Dec 12, 2012, pansypetal said: First time author? Really?

    This wonderful blog belies that. I too love dance! How beautiful! Your favorite examples are wonderful. Fred Astaire is legend and captures the romance of dance like no other. Incorporating this love of dance in a novel is a different idea. I will look forward to reading this story. Thank you for writing it.

  • On Dec 12, 2012, JannaShay said: Waltz With A Stranger contest

    Your book sounds wonderful and that it contains all the elements for a truly romantic novel - romantic anticipation, a shy heroine, a dashingly handsome hero, music and moonlight. Waltz With A Stranger sounds absolutely magical and is definitely on my TBR list.

  • On Dec 12, 2012, nsojka said: Waltz with a Stranger

    Stories where a character overcomes a physical handicap always pull at my heartstrings and makes me cry!

  • On Dec 12, 2012, Bemiown said: Waltz With A Stranger

    What a romantic cover, just lovely! DId you ever dream of meeting that perfect stranger? But Waltzing with him. That's romantic. Thanks for the giveaway.

    I really love this cover!

  • On Dec 12, 2012, celticdebbie said: Handicap

    I like a good book where the character overcomes a handicap, it is inspiring to me. I love to see them beat the odds.

  • On Dec 12, 2012, Monica said: Pamela Sherwood

    I really enjoyed this post. I never really appreciated the old musical dance scenes when I was younger, but Pamela has it right. They are wonderful.

  • On Dec 12, 2012, jmcgaugh said: Waltz with a Stranger

    I enjoy the romance of dance, as well, so I'll have to check out Waltz with a Stranger.

  • On Dec 12, 2012, Pamela Sherwood said: Re: Thanks for the giveaway

    castlefan, Yul Brynner had a ton of charisma, and he definitely owned that part, and not just because he originated the role. Yeah, I rather like the cover too.

    Crystaldark, hope you enjoy the book. Happy Holidays to you too.

  • On Dec 12, 2012, CrystalDark said: Thanks for the Giveaway!

    This sounds like an interesting book & the cover is great! Happy Holidays!

  • On Dec 12, 2012, castlefan said: Thanks for the Giveaway

    I really enjoyed the Yul Brynner version of The King & I, he made a great King. The cover is great.

  • On Dec 12, 2012, Pamela Sherwood said: Waltz with a Stranger

    Thanks, Barbed! I hope the book lives up to expectation.

  • On Dec 12, 2012, Barbed said: Sounds Lovely

    I think Waltz with a Stranger sounds like a lovely story and I'm looking forward to reading it.

  • On Dec 11, 2012, Pamela Sherwood said: Damaged characters

    Hi, Joder--thanks for your interest. Damaged characters do make for interesting reading. Heroes with disabilities or handicaps tend to be more common, so I enjoyed the challenge of writing a damaged heroine instead. Hope you enjoy the book.

  • On Dec 11, 2012, Joder said: Sounds Delightful!!!

    As a disabled person I'm constantly looking for books featuring damaged characters. The heroine of this story sounds wonderful and I would LOVE to read this!

  • On Dec 11, 2012, Pamela Sherwood said: More Greetings

    Samantha, glad you like the sound of the book.

    LSUreader, you're welcome. Hope the book lives up to expectation.

    Good luck to everyone on the draw!

  • On Dec 10, 2012, Pamela Sherwood said: "It Only Happens. . ."--Greetings, all!

    Hello, everyone--just dropping in with greetings and thanks for the comments.

    Lexi, I heartily recommend The Slipper and the Rose. It was released on DVD some years back--try to get hold of the British version, if you can.

    bncandg, glad you liked the list.

    Lizemskiu, I loved The King and I too! My parents had the soundtrack album, which I listened to, many times, when I was a kid.

    greenshamrock, nice to meet you too. So far, it's just one book you have to look for--my second's not out until next year--but I hope you enjoy it.

  • On Dec 10, 2012, greenshamrock said: Dancing

    Oooh a new to me author... a pleasure to meet you... have to look for your books! Thanks for sharing.

  • On Dec 10, 2012, Lizsemkiu said: Shall we dance?

    I remember the first time I saw The King and I. I loved that scene! Thanks for the contest.

  • On Dec 10, 2012, bncandg said: re:

    Very nice list.

  • On Dec 10, 2012, Lexi said: May I have this dance?

    I have never heard of your number 5, sounds like one I need to check out! The King and I is full of beautifully written dances...

    Fun post!
