Although I felt the story and romance moved quite abruptly and rapidly, I also noticed the dialogue primarily tells the story and story movement relying on a narrative voice instead of the story flowing naturally by building the scenes/chapters or showing instead of telling through character development.
However, the strengths of the story was the confidence that prevailed the years of violin training and experience Cami developed over time, and boldly believing in her dream and talent regardless of the critics. The love interest was expected, which the story ended on a positive note. I love to see people pursue their dreams and overcoming their fears or obstacles. The main character also was advised to focus on her talent, not her prized-possession—the violin. Her skill didn’t rely on having her possession but believing in herself and that she could play regardless of who the violin belonged to.
The story did leave me with a thought-provoking question: Are there still problems for interracial couples in the South (Mississippi)? I guess I will have to find out in book 2 of the novella series.
I received a complimentary eBook copy from the author for an honest review.
