Forest Dancer by Sue Roebuck

Today, I am delighted that my friend and fellow author, Sue Roebuck is able to join me from Portugal to tell me about her most recent book, Forest Dancer.
Thank you for letting me come and visit you today, Val.
Forest Dancer, my new novel, takes place in Portugal as my previous book Rising Tide was. Instead of being on the coast, Forest Dancer is set in the mountains just outside Lisbon in a fictional village called Aurora. Forest Dancer is a story that fans of Polina will enjoy with characters that are genuinely flawed yet decided on bringing out the best in themselves. Flora Gatehouse has just recently lost her father, but she has also suffered a devastating blow in her career as a ballet dancer; her failed audition that sees her moving to a small cottage in Lisbon, Portugal, the only inheritance left to her by her father. Follow her story as she embraces the life of a small village with its dark secrets, and falls for the forest ranger. Marco. But can she totally become part of this hamlet and can she ever reconnect with her dream to become a principal ballerina?
Susan Roebuck was born and bred in the soft south of the UK but was exported to Portugal after meeting her husband in London. She now lives overlooking the mighty Tagus River which is such a source of inspiration.
She loves being in her adopted country and believes that this little country has a huge heart, which the world should know more about. Portugal also doesn’t appear in many English-language novels and Susan hopes that, now, that will change.
Forest Dancer, published by Crooked Cat Books, is her fourth novel but it is her second one set in Portugal (in the forests near Lisbon).
Rising Tide is also set in Portugal, but in a tiny fishing village on the Alentejo coast.
They are both contemporary romance/suspense stories.
