Every body can be a dancer’s body!  

All her life, Fiona has dreamed of becoming a dancer, but she was always told dancing was not for “fat girls” like her. Now, at age 35, Fiona is again confronted with her weight issues when the HR department kindly encourages her and a coworker, Stu, to attend a support group for people with “health” issues. 

When quilting is suggested as a hobby to help with their totally opposite eating disorders (Fiona loves everything related to calories, Stu tries to avoid any), Stu insanely suggests they enter a local version of Dancing with the Stars instead….   

What follows is a fantastic journey with a lot of ups and downs, sore feet, self-doubt, sweat, and tears mixed in with ghosts from the past.  

Dancing Queen is a warmhearted and humorous story about self-doubt, dancing, friendship, and the courage to follow your dreams no matter what size you are.   

If you love fast-paced, feel-good stories with snappy dialogue, lots of humor, and heart, this is the audiobook for you.

    Awesome Story & Audible Listen🎧 I❤️Fiona & Stu!
    Dancing Queen
    By: Charlotte Roth
    Narrated by: Stefanie Kay

    Wow, what a great book, the story is heartfelt, fun and inspirational. I enjoyed Charlotte Roth’s writing style, the natural flow of the story and how her descriptive details brought me along side the characters. I just adored Fiona and Stu, how easy and natural they were together and the bond they formed. Some may say and unlikely pair but they were perfect for each other. They helped each other become better selves and I could not help but root for them. There were some real laugh out loud moments in this book and some sad ones and others that made me angry, especially her sister. I was happy for Fiona when some things get resolved, I was also heartbroken to learn what she went thru. And Stu was just a hoot, a quirky walking calorie counter and such a nice guy. Diane was fun too as were some of the other secondary characters. This story is the type that will stay with you for a long time, it shows you that it is never to late to follow your dreams. Also don’t let others stop you, if you want something go for it. WTG Fiona & Stu, WTG Charlotte Roth! Thank you for this awesome and inspiring story!

    I listened to the Audible edition, Stefanie Kay is a wonderful narrator and voice performer. She brings the characters to life, gives each their own voice and personality. She projects the emotions of the characters and drama of the story in her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thanks for the great listen🎧

    This book shows so much strength within the main characters with daily challenges that they have to overcome. The support that they have found with friends is wonderful and the inner strength grows more each day. I loved listening to this book as there were many emotions that it pulls out of you while listening and has you routing for the underdogs. Narration was done beautifully as well.
