“If you are looking for a contemporary romance that doesn’t dance to the same tune as many other romances, Playing the Maestro by Aubrie Dionne might resonate well with you! The Easthampton's Civic Symphony is slowly becoming obsolete and in desperate need of new patrons, new interest and new money to keep going. Enter young German conductor Wolf Braun, looking to get his life back on track after a disastrous relationship with a beautiful, yet poisonous model. His job is to breathe new life into the group, and getting involved with any of its members. First flutist Melody Mires has sworn off dating musicians, until she lays eyes on Wolf. Too bad their first meeting hits a sour note because beautiful Melody bears too much of a resemblance to wolf’s ex, but she is being set up for failure by another’s machinations in the ECS and Wolf can’t just stand by. Breaking all the rules, these two find they are meant for each other, like rosin and a bow.
Aubrie Dionne has written a light romance with characters that are NOT damaged beyond belief by their pasts! The angst is at a minimum, making this a perfect fast read with a little intrigue, a little romance and a plot that moves along quickly. Take this one the beach this summer!
