Love at First Note by Jenny Proctor + $25 and Book Giveaway

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 end notes 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?

Love.  Love, love, love, love, love.

So, so good.

Perfectly real, human characters who live, love, make mistakes and learn.  I loved the full on incorporation of music.  It was in every page and every feeling.  It made me want to go immerse myself in classical music.  I wish I could have heard the music described playing while I read.  That would have been perfect.  Maybe Jenny Proctor has a playlist somewhere for this book?  I need to check.  (yeah, just sent her an email...)  Okay, here is the link to the playlist for this book.  FIND IT HERE.  (Thanks, Jenny Proctor!)  Now you can listen to the music when you read the book.  I may just have to go back and read it again while listening.  It's a book worth perusing again.

Emma and Elliott were great characters.  There was a fantastic support of secondary characters for Emma in family and friends as well.  It all helped me, as a reader have a very clear picture of who Emma was and I loved seeing everything from her perspective.  Especially Elliott.  So romantic.  The tension is fantastic.

This is an LDS fiction book, but the references to religion are minimal.  (no drinking, no sex before marriage, a few scenes at church)  Clean and so much fun!
