Moonlight Over Mayfair (Hardback)Anton Du Beke (author)
Gloriously escapist and rapturously romantic, du Beke’s second novel sparkles with glamour, intrigue and, of course, the author’s beloved ballroom dancing. Steeped in the high society chic of a luxury 1930s hotel, but with the spectre of war looming on the horizon, Moonlight Over Mayfair is the ultimate feel-good read this autumn.

Prepare to be swept off your feet by the romantic and irresistible new novel from Sunday Times bestselling author and Strictly Come Dancing star Anton Du Beke
London, 1937. With a new king in place, tensions are rising in London and across Europe. Shaken by the Great Depression and with talk of another war coming, the Buckingham Hotel is trying to regain some stability. Upstairs, Vivienne Edgerton is desperate to do something worthwhile with her time and her stepfather's money, rather than spending it on frivolity and debauchery - but will this land her in even more trouble?
And downstairs, chambermaid Nancy Nettleton is finally starting to feel more settled at the Buckingham, and hopes her brother will soon call London home, too. But she misses the man she loves, demonstration dancer Raymond de Guise, who is noticeably absent from the Grand Ballroom dance floor.
The staff and guests of the Buckingham soon discover that in a hotel full of secrets, there's always someone listening ...

A rollicking good read, the work of a gifted storyteller * Daily Mail, on One Enchanted Evening *
Du Beke's on-screen persona of witty charm is evident in his writing, and he is obviously comfortable portraying the disciplined and splendid world of the ballroom through his fiction. Fans of his dancing and of his words will relish another chance to enter the rarefied word of Mayfair in the Twenties and Thirties. This novel would be a welcome early Christmas present for his legions of fans * The Lady *
