Lost Melody: A Book Review and Giveaway

About The Book:


Even as Jill King wrestles with the death of her dream of becoming a concert pianist, another dream rises in its place. It is one that Jill never sought. A dream that will not let her go. One that will force her to choose between the man she loves and the fate of an entire community.


The beautiful piano sitting in the corner of Jill King’s apartment begs to be played. For over a year, it has sat untouched, ever since a terrible accident shattered Jill’s ambition of becoming a concert pianist. The ragged scar on her left hand is a cruel and constant reminder of the death of her dream. But another dream is about to come to life—an unexpected, horrifying dream that will present Jill with a responsibility she never wanted. And choices she never wanted to make. Hundreds of lives depend on Jill’s willingness to warn her small, oceanside town in Nova Scotia of a nameless, looming disaster. But doing so could cost Jill her reputation, jeopardize the political career of the man she loves, and ruin their plans for a future together. The fate of an entire community hangs in the balance as Jill wrestles with the cost of heeding one still, small voice.

My Review:


With incredibly deep characters dealing with overcoming injury, and career changes, Lost Melody with catch your attention and keep it to the very last pages. I really love the underlying theme that God will use everything in our lives to do good and takes even the most difficult times and teach us lessons through them. Another fantastic theme is that with God's help we can overcome our fears, whatever they are. Each characters has their good points and their quirks, but all are extremely well developed, as is the storyline. I really enjoyed the writing duo of Copeland and Smith and hope they write again soon in the future, as I would love to read more from them.


I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
