Jazz pianist Liz Randall is reeling from her wife’s death and struggling to keep their band together. An invitation to play at the prestigious Monterey Jazz Festival is an opportunity she can’t turn down, and a challenge she might not be up to until she enlists the help of a mysterious neighbor who’s surprisingly knowledgeable about jazz.
When Jac Winters reluctantly agrees to help, a past she wants to forget threatens to destroy the carefully ordered life she’s built with her guide dog, Max, in the quiet town of Carmel-by-the-Sea.
With music and love swirling around them like ocean currents, will Liz and Jac play it safe or risk everything on making a comeback?
Absolutely brilliant story about love lost and regained, no punches pulled. Wonderful background of music.
This is definitely an author I would look up again. I truly enjoyed the flow of the story.
Loved it - love the Jazz, the partner's death, the neighbor, the locale of Carmel by the Sea - loved it.
This book was much better than her debut one and if Julie Blair can improve so much with only two book I will wait impatiently for her 3rd one. Really good job! I have nothing to say because the book have offered me all I want: a good solid plot that make sense and give away so much in the feelings department that one can only empathize with the protagonists. And also if it was not a original story it was fresh enough to old my interest from cover to cover. Definitely one of the best read this year and so it deserved a perfect score.
A little slow placed but overall well written romance. Very likeable MC's, both vulnerable and finding their way to love.
