Blog Tour - Love at First Note Review and Giveaway


About the book: 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?

My review: Oh. My. Goodness! I love a good romance and this one is just amazing! I love the way Jenny Proctor included music in almost every bit of this book. The whole plot line is awesome and the ending is just amazing!

I love Emma. I had to laugh at the beginning when she first met Elliot. I loved the way that she couldn't even talk to him. And what made it even funnier was all of the assumptions that he had made about her that were revealed later. I loved the way that Emma was forced to learn some things about herself and her motives and the way that she was able to grow and change because of that. And I loved all of the care she went to at the end for Elliot. It was kind of fun in this book that the only point of view we see is Emma's. It might be a little one sided, but that's how we see our every day life.

What to say about Elliot??? I have to admit that he wasn't one of my favorite characters at the beginning. But I loved the way he changed once he realized that his initial impression of Emma was completely wrong. I loved that he was honest with her from the very beginning about his motives for being in Asheville and the way he saw their relationship going. I loved the way he was a gentleman. The scene at the beer festival with the Stud t-shirt guy was probably one of my favorites! (Go read it, I'm not saying any more about it!)

I loved how I felt transported to Asheville with every word I read, I think I seriously need a trip there. This book is amazing! Go read it, end of story!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

About the author: Jenny Proctor writes from her home in the mountains of western North Carolina. She loves being a mom to six kids, loves being a writer, and loves being a Mormon in the South.

Jenny is convinced the four basic food groups should be fruit, bread, cheese, and chocolate, and she consumes plenty of each—quite often together. When she isn’t writing, Jenny likes to run, swim, and bike (because it balances out the bread, cheese, and chocolate).

Her first novel, The House at Rose Creek, was inspired by discoveries she made in her own family history. She has always felt strongly about the importance of family history work and has experienced firsthand the joy that such research can bring.

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …

About the book: Fat-free cheese is okay—unless you’ve tasted real cheese. Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister’s fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
