Elena reviews: Nocturne by Andrea Randall and Charles Sheehan Miles

Nocturne cover

The synopsis:

Savannah Marshall is a gifted flutist and daughter of musical royalty when she enrolls in the elite New England Conservatory of Music. Brilliant, eclectic and passionate, she lives music, but struggles with her plans for the future.
Gregory Fitzgerald is one of the most renowned cellists of his generation. A member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and professor at the Conservatory, he is laser focused on his career to the exclusion of friends, family and especially romance.
When Gregory and Savannah’s paths cross in the classroom, it threatens to challenge more than their wildly differing beliefs on music. Friendships, ethics, and careers are put on the line as Gregory and Savannah play a symphony of passion and heartbreak.
In the final movement, Gregory and Savannah are handed their greatest challenge, as the loss of absolutely everything they’ve held as truths hangs in the balance.

My review:

You all know by now that I’m a big fan of Charles Sheehan Miles’s books (you can find my interview with him here) He wrote Nocturne with Andrea Randall, bestselling Author of In the Stillness. I’m always very curious to see how a story turns out, when it’s written not with two but with four hands. I have to say that the result of the collaboration between these two authors is phenomenal. The love story of Gregory and Savannah kept me on the edge of my seat, and made me shed tears of joy. It has the right amount of angst and a beautiful HEA.

Let’s see what he told me…
