How can you not love this book?
Jenny Proctor's novel, Love At First Note, was not what I had expected it to be. Sure, it is a clean romance novel, but at the same time it had other themes and ideas running through it (I.e. family relationships, music and its impact, and friendship).
So, I bet your wondering what this book is about? Well here's a summary...
Emma Hill, a highly acclaimed violinst, is sure she's commited dating suicide. Leaving behind the glitz and glam of the Cleaveland Orchestra for safeguarded reasons in Asheville, North Carolina. However, things change when Emma and Elliot Hart, a YouTube sensation, meet. Soon Emma finds herself falling for Elliot, but as problems arise (as only problems could arise from dating a YouTube star), Emma is left to decide if she and Elliot, together, are worth it at all,
(Yes, I wrote that summary. If its too terrible, you can click on the title of the book in the note at the top and it will take you to the book's Amazon page.)
What I really liked about this book is that Emma, despite being a known violinst, is still, in many ways, and ordinary girl who fumbles over her words, isn't always as understanding as she should be, and, in the end, has to decide what really matters to her.
Plus, I loved Emma's family from her rocky relationship with her sister to her grandma's nickname for her,
Then of course, we can't forget our leading man, Elliot Hart.
Just like Emma, Elliot is LDS and is musically inclined--he's a YouTube famous pianist. In my mind, I invision Elliot as more cute than hot, but attractive nonetheless.
So yes, I was definetly impressed with Mr. Hart.
The only problem I had with this book was...
that I saw the proposal at the end from a mile away. I still squealed and gushed over it, but when Emma was wondering why all of her family and friends were suddenly at the very same Paris hotel she was staying at I just wanted to yell at her!
"Elliot's proposing you dingbat!"
But of course, I let all of that slide because I'm sure that if someone proposed to me I too would be confused, overcome by emotions, and I wouldn't realize it either until he actually proposed.
In conclusion, I give this book 4.5/5 stars and I highly recommend it.
