Publisher's Summary

Jazz pianist Liz Randall is reeling from her wife's death and struggling to keep their band together. An invitation to play at the prestigious Monterey Jazz Festival is an opportunity she can't turn down, and a challenge she might not be up to until she enlists the help of a mysterious neighbor who's surprisingly knowledgeable about jazz.
When Jac Winters reluctantly agrees to help, a past she wants to forget threatens to destroy the carefully ordered life she's built with her guide dog, Max, in the quiet town of Carmel-by-the-Sea.
With music and love swirling around them like ocean currents, will Liz and Jac play it safe or risk everything on making a comeback?

Fantastic story, meh narrator

I loved this story. Good writing, good pacing. The narration was distracting, though. Jac sounded so robotic, I thought it was one of those computer generated voices. Still, I got used to it after a while. Toward the end of the book, however, the narrator missed the voice switch a few times and read another character's part in Jac's voice. The producer should have caught that and re-recorded that segment.

Great Story!

The story was great!
I loved the ability of the characters to use music as metaphors. Jazz is an amazing source of story and emotion.
Character voice consistency is so very important to audio adaptation of a stories words. Jac, dad, Hannah, etc. were all consistent. Liz went from high or alto to basso when she was away from Jac, almost like listening to Jac speaking Liz's parts. For that matter, opposite female voices sounded like Jac or one of the males. It was distracting. Otherwise, I say again, it is a great story.
