~Fall in Love on the Dance Floor~ 

When vintage fashionista Rose sews dissension between June and James, June is driven to choose between the security of her family, friends, and swing scene, or run off with an international swing boy. 

Will the handsome Swede turn June’s head with an offer to teach Jitterbug across Europe? And is he really the sparkling Lindy Hop star he claimed to be when he twirled her around the historic Catalina ballroom? 

Return to Violet’s world of big band jazz, seedy nightclubs, and WWII. Follow her through 1940s Los Angeles and early wartime Vegas when she transformed herself into a jazzy songbird. 

Will the truth about the murder, the mob, and her murky history undo her rekindled relationship with her lost Jitterbug love and newfound family? And will Violet, Charles, and June finally confirm a biological connection? 

The Girl in the Jitterbug Dress Hops the Atlantic continues the story of two women from two different eras, confronting life-altering choices about love, marriage, birth, and death, contrasted by 1940s Vegas glamour and the seductive thrill of hopping across Europe.




Hey! Here's my review.



I absolutely adored the first book in this series (The Girl in the Jitterbug Dress) and snapped up a copy of the sequel as soon as it was released. I loved finding out more about June and Violet's stories. Swing dancing is a passion of mine and Tam does a wonderful job of immersing you in the swing dance culture of the early 1940s and of the resurgence in the late 1990s. Dancing, romancing, what more could you want?

I recommend reading book one first and I can't wait until the final book in the trilogy is released.
