Book Summary: 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?
Be. Still. My. Heart. I loved this book. Funny, well written, educational in light of the music world, enjoyable characters, were all included in this novel.
I loved how the author was able to weave in and through the music world, include friends, family and create believable, honest, flawed characters.
Elliot and Emma (why thank you, I do love alliteration) entertained me with their many types of interactions. I laughed at their first meeting and smiled at the apartment musical duel, and sighed when . . . . (I don’t want to give it away). They are the perfect example of everyone having a story.
I mentioned I learned new things about the music world. I loved being taught without feeling preach to.
So. Well. Done. A truly enjoyable work.
