BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: Love at First Note


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?


I can honestly say that I really loved this book!  I enjoyed the characters, especially Emma and Elliott.  I loved the musical aspects of the book.  In fact, as I read I wished I could actually hear the music being discussed and played by the characters.  It was interesting to 'observe' Emma and Elliott's relationship develop from the first disastrous meeting to the satisfying last note.  Like all relationships, Emma and Elliott's has some real ups and downs.  Emma's awkwardness at talking to him gradually makes way for a sweet romance. But things take a turn for the worse when Elliott's fame puts Emma in a place she really doesn't want to be and she has to decide what it is she really wants.  And that choice leads her down a path she might never have gone otherwise.  The secondary characters are fun as well, including Lilly (Emma's roommate) and her boyfriend Travis, Emma's family (parents and sister, Ava), even an ex-boyfriend all play important roles in Emma and Elliott's lives.  I found this book to be a thoroughly enjoyable romance with great characters, interesting themes, and great music. I just wish there was a soundtrack to go with it. ;)
