Rifts and Refrains by Devney Perry is now live!
From the moment Quinn Montgomery sat behind her first snare and cymbal set, she was destined for fame and glory. As Hush Note's infamous female drummer, she sets the rhythm for the band's chart-toppings hits. When people tap their feet to their music, it's to her pulse.
Quinn is content to live in a world away from her family and the cage of her youth. Her only regret is leaving Graham Hayes behind without a goodbye. No matter how many sold-out stadiums she plays, no matter how many crowds sing her songs, his voice haunts her when the music stops.
When a family tragedy forces her to return home to Montana, she plans to leave the second she's paid her respects. But seeing Graham again turns her life upside down. As a boy, he wasn't able to make her stay. As a man, he might be her future.
If they can mend their rifts and find solace in the refrains.

She took one step before stopping. A smile tugged at the corner of her mouth, the same corner I’d kissed earlier, and I fought the urge to stand and capture that mouth again. Her smile broadened, though there was pain in her eyes.
“Colin is a cool kid. You’re a good dad, Graham. I always knew you would be.”
She might as well have stabbed me in the chest.
“Thanks,” I said, watching as she walked away.
When had I never loved that woman?
Maybe that kiss had woken me up. Maybe it had made me realize how goddamn lonely I’d been without her. I had Colin, but there was a corner of my heart that would always belong to Quinn.
I should have followed her nine years ago.
Because now it was too late.

Oh the warm and fuzzies!!
I loved this story of a woman who has reached the peak of her career and has the opportunity to revisit past choices and see if there can be a different path to take.
The approach Ms Perry took to Quinn’s story eases the reader into what created the situation our rock finds herself in as she returns home for the first time in nine years. I enjoyed getting to know Quinn, Graham, Colin, and the Montgomery/Hayse families.
Rifts and Refrains is a story centered around grief, but filled with hope, healing and rebuilding brides that may have been broken, but not burned. I was pulled into the story and was disappointed when the reached the end. I definitely want to read the stories for the other members of Hush Note!
