5 stars for A Song for Another Day by @MariaImbalzano #romance #wrpbks #bookreview

Title: A Song For Another Day

Author: Maria Imbalzano

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Blurb:

Gigi Jenson, an up-and-coming Broadway star, finds herself in Willow Springs, Vermont, for the summer as director of their first annual community revue. This sleepy town is worlds away from her vibrant and beloved New York City, but the experience she’ll gain will be invaluable to her career.

Jason Simmons has lived in Willow Springs his entire life. Working several jobs while writing music, he yearns for a contract to record his songs. The one chance he had to make it in Nashville he blew due to stage fright.

When Jason volunteers to help Gigi with the revue, sparks ignite but their dreams are taking them in different directions. Will their love for each other ever guide them to the same path?

This is a standalone book as part of The Deerbourne Inn Series. I had to write a song with the hero and heroine for this story—well, they wrote it. There’s a blog on my website that talks about the music that inspired this book:

My Review:

All New York City actress Gigi Jenson wants is to be on Broadway. Her latest audition went well but she hasn’t heard back yet. While waiting, she agrees to direct a revue in the small town of Willow Springs. The pay’s not great but it’ll be a wonderful experience and will look impressive on her resume. Once she gets settled in, it’s nothing like she expected. She’s juggling several acts and needs help. Into her life walks Jason Simmons, a handsome man with a musical gift. As the two become close, they encourage each other’s dreams. Before she knows what’s happened, she’s fallen hard for him. Her heart is torn in two when her chance to be with a man she loves conflicts with her shot at Broadway. Which path will she choose or is there a third one she hasn’t thought of yet?

A Song for Another Day is a feel-good romance where theater and country music harmonize. Maria Imbalzano takes a big-city woman and thrusts her out of her element into a rural small town. It starts off as an enemies to lovers romance but as the story progresses, it turns out Gigi and Jason aren’t that different. A Song for Another Day is another installment in the Deerbourne Inn series and it’s one of my favorites. Readers will get a chance to see townfolk from previous books in the series and reconnect. The ambiance of Willow Spring takes over in A Song for Another Day and I loved it. With some twists and witty dialogue, this book burrowed into my heart. The ending made my heart burst into a romantic melody. If you’re like me and love small-town romance, you’ll want to read A Song for Another Day. This is definitely a keeper. Highly recommend!
