“Matt and Nicole’s sexual relationship is built upon mature expectations and open conversations... [that] involve psychological grappling: with the inner child, dark parts of the human psyche, and reconciling the past. ...[T]heir relationship is vulnerable and eye-opening.” Foreword Clarion Reviews

“In Karen D. Hamilton’s tale of friendship and self-acceptance, the main characters must learn to trust others and to identify internal demons. ...Readers will steadfastly follow the characters’ journey of self-discovery... Infused with spiritual lessons, this story about two lost souls finding their way back to themselves proves a satisfying read.” BlueInk Review


About the Book 

When souls intersect deeply, but their paths are separate...

After a harrowing experience from his service in the military, Matt returns only to find his marriage to the love of his life is over. In the midst of his darkness, Matt seeks peace camping in Wyoming, where he meets Nicole, an intriguing woman who shifts his perspective, and changes his life forever. As their connection deepens, their relationship uncovers the fears that are holding both of them back.

Matt isn’t the only one with an unresolved love in his past. Waiting in the wings is Sam, Nicole’s business partner and best friend. The pair have a history of more than just catering and event planning, but Nicole has always been afraid of letting Sam get too close.

In this novel of self-discovery, compassion and healing, Nicole and Matt are brought to a greater understanding and acceptance of themselves, and who they are in the world.

My Review


A Delicate Dance of Souls is More than a Romance. Readers get to learn about the backstories of the characters as the romance develops--and they become flies on the wall as the couple share life stories that make each who he/she is. I am not a romance novel fan--but I am a fan of a romantic tale with more profound life stories that allow the characters to learn, grow and find themselves (and maybe a love interest too). This novel is an in-depth look at lives and imperfections--and doubts and fears--as well as spiritual growth and healing. The book offers a lot more than a love story.  

Readers will Find Real-World Characters in A Delicate Dance of Souls.  Readers will quickly fall into place into the characters' lives and the dialogue. The conversations and emotions are presented realistically from relatable, real-world characters. Readers will easily recognize traits and experiences relayed in the story from their own lives or of someone they know. The author does a great job creating believable characters without really creating cliche characters.  

Would I recommend A Delicate Dance of Souls? If you enjoy a romance with more than a sappy, instant-attraction, love story--and prefer a little realism in your romantic fiction--this is a great romance to add to your summer reading list. The book does delve into a lot of spiritual thought and healing, but the author tries to balance it with real-world characters and storylines as well. I enjoyed this novel and recommend it to readers who prefer to see some imperfect characters' growth and reformation.
