Mr B's review

You may have come across Tim Gautreaux via Mr B’s before – his novel “The Missing” is our best-selling book ever. So we’re thrilled to reissue Gautreaux’s 1998 debut novel, “The Next Step in the Dance” – a dramatic emotional story that shares “The Missing”’s marshy Louisiana setting.

Tiger Island is home to Paul, a contented machinist with killer dance moves and Colette his ambitious, outspoken wife. Amidst the bar brawls and boiled crab of her economically troubled hometown, Colette is hungry for a life of opportunity and sophistication. Armed with only her wits and her “tongue like a fillet knife” she heads West to California, but Paul, Tiger Island, and its wise old-timer residents refuse to let Colette go easily. We loved this novel for its tenacious protagonists, its distinctive watery setting and its fast-paced, dynamic scenes – we hope that you’ll love it too!
