Susanne’s Review:

Sometimes Love Can Be Found in the Most Unexpected of Places.

Layla is an elementary school music teacher who is newly divorced and is trying to make a fresh start.

Josh is a single dad, who is recently separated from his wife of twenty years.

Every day, Josh walks his daughter to school, and every day, he chats with his daughter’s music teacher, and each day Josh and Layla wonder about each other until the day one soul reaches out to the other.

A relationship that builds like a slow song until it reaches the crescendo.  

Told in alternating chapters by Layla and Josh, “Heard It in a Love Song” by Tracey Garvis Graves, allows you to get to know each character in the past and the present while each develops feelings for the other.

If only this had led to my caring for the characters.  For some reason, however, the way this story was told didn’t lend itself to my feeling invested in either Layla or Josh’s life stories or in their romance and I cannot put my finger on exactly why that is.  All I can say is that, in the end, something was missing. That said, while I didn’t enjoy the romance, I really liked the musical aspect of the story and was wholly immersed in it.  This was the 7th book that I’ve read by Tracey Garvis Graves and I will be anxiously awaiting her next release.  

Thank you to NetGalley, St. Martin’s Press, and Tracey Garvis Graves for the arc.

  1. I have this on my NetGalley shelf to read. The cover lured me in, lol. At least you enjoyed the musical aspect of the book.


    1. The cover is absolutely gorgeous isn’t it? I love her books and wish I had loved this Wendy! I really wanted to. I hope you end up loving it. I can’t wait to see what you think!
