Book Description: Emma Hill was practically born with a violin in her hands. She lives for the life of the piece, for each song's story, for the perfect stillness after the endnotes when the vibrations of sound are still humming through her body.
If only her love life were that harmonic. But she knew her chances at love would take a hit when she decided to leave her prestigious concertmaster position in the Cleveland Orchestra and move back home to Asheville, North Carolina. She justifies her actions with the fact that being concertmaster for the Asheville Symphony is better than no dates and no job.
But when Emma's world collides with piano-playing YouTube sensation Elliott Hart, she finds herself falling for the way he plucks at her heartstrings. Despite a, ahem, not-so-good first impression, the two soon develop the beginnings of a rhythmic relationship. But when Elliott insists they can't be together, it's up to Emma to strike up a little romance. Will she be able to bring their two worlds into harmony, or will she only manage to get herself in trouble?
My thoughts: Sometimes when I read a book I think of a phrase that describes the book. In this case it is "very cute". (OK, it was actually "stinkin' cute", but this book doesn't stink.) I have to admit that the first thing that drew me to the book was the cover. It has a prominent violin. I love the violin.
The book begins on a sour note (pun intended). Emma is awkward when it comes to meeting new people and her first meeting with Elliott left me chuckling. I knew from that moment that I was going to like this book. Awkwardness and music... definitely a winner for me.
Both Emma and Elliott are talented musicians. With musical talent comes pride (at least in my experience, and the reason I walked away from music.) It takes character to realize that you are wrong. A lesson that is pointed out to both characters. You can't help but like Emma from the beginning, and it takes a little longer to warm up to Elliott.
This book is a contemporary LDS romance. It's clean and fun.
About the Author: (taken from Goodreads) Jenny Proctor was born in the mountains of Western North Carolina, a place she still resides and considers the loveliest on earth. She hikes to spend time with her family, runs because her love for food requires it, and writes because it keeps her calm in an otherwise crazy world. She believes that life in the south has a certain flair to it--and works to capture that flair in her novels.
