Title: Heart Strings
Author: Melanie Moreland
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 12, 2020

A woman drowning in sorrow. Invisible.
The man that sees it all. Sees her.
The only thing that gets Charlotte Prescott through the day is the haunting eyes and magnetic voice that uplifts her in the subway station every evening.
All Montgomery Logan wants to do is ease the pain of the woman he feels a strange, protective draw to. He serenades her from afar, knowing their worlds will never intersect.
Until the day they do.
And everything changes.
Will their differences make them stronger or tear them apart?

"Music to soothe the soul...A connection that was felt by both, A smile that set MY heart tingling. <3” Chele, Goodreads
"I definitely would like to see made into full length stories because they were so engaging from Sydney Logan, Melanie Moreland, and Jo Richardson. ”  Shannon, Goodreads

Review Cpy Provided by Author

If you are looking for a true feel good story, then Heart Strings is it! 

Lottie and Logan are a bit of an odd couple, but I loved them together from the get go. Ms Moreland does an excellent job of crafting a unique meet cute and putting these two characters in positions that swung from awkward to sweet with a little bit of spice thrown in. 

Heart Strings is a romance, but there are multiple sub plots going on. I won't go into detail, because you need to read the book! I will say that I enjoyed how Ms Moreland layered in familial relationship conflict and the idea of living your best life into the romantic story. I also appreciated the fact that the conflict of the story was external to the Lottie/Logan story. Seeing how they responded told a lot of their relationship and the potential for a happily ever after. 

Add in a dynamic secondary cast and Heart Strings is a must read. I am hoping we may see a little more from the group surrounding Lottie and Logan in the future. 

NYT/WSJ/USAT international bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-seven-plus years and their rescue cat, Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them. 
While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip. 
Melanie loves stories, especially paired with a good wine, and enjoys skydiving (free falling over a fleck of dust) extreme snowboarding (falling down stairs) and piloting her own helicopter (tripping over her own feet.) She's learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.
