ABOUT THE BOOK:
Imperfect harmony can still be beautiful…
John Fletcher, a former musician, is stuck in limbo after losing his long-term partner two years ago. He’s shut himself off from everything that reminds him of what he’s lost. When his neighbour persuades him to join the local community choir, John rediscovers his love of music and finds a reason to start living again.
Rhys Callington, the talented and charismatic choir leader, captures John’s attention from the first moment they meet. He appears to be the polar opposite of John: young, vibrant, and full of life. But Rhys has darkness in his own past that is holding him back from following his dreams.
Despite the nineteen-year age gap, the two men grow close and a fragile relationship blossoms. Ghosts of the past and insecurities about the future threaten their newfound happiness. If they’re going to harmonise in life and love as they do in their music, they’ll need to start following the same score.
Imperfect Harmony will be exclusive to Amazon for 90 days. After that it will be available at all retailers.
In her signature sweet, sexy style, Jay Northcote delivers a heartwarming story of second chances. Readers can’t help but feel touched by the emotional elements of grief and hope in this May-December romance. Taking this emotional journey is exhilarating and terrifying as the characters must challenge themselves to find peace, accept change and take chances.
John Fletcher has spent the last two years stumbling through life, grieving for his long-term partner. The recent loss of his mother has reopened those wounds and now he’s returned to his childhood home to decide where to go from here. A chance meeting at his neighbor’s weekly choir rehearsal brings him face-to-face with Rhys Callington, a younger, vibrant man also working to put a painful past behind him. The two strike it off, their mutual love of music a common bond. Their obvious interest and chemistry stoke the fires of an unlikely attraction, forcing each to see past the boundaries of grief and age and opening up possibilities for happiness they thought abandoned forever.
While there’s an overall shadow of grief and longing to this story, Northcote infuses just enough of the excitement and optimism of new love to keep it balanced. Readers won’t find themselves hopelessly bereft but thoughtfully acknowledging the pain and suffering while urging Rhys and John to spread their wings and learn how to fly. If they do, there’s a tremendous chance together they’ll soar to new heights.
