Elahna has had a crush on her childhood best friend's brother for years. When she literally runs into Timothy, the owner of a local theater, she finds that sometimes it takes an unfortunate event to bring dreams back to life. I thought this one had a lot of potential, but I didn't quite connect with the characters.

I've been analyzing why I felt a disconnect and I think it's because the characters weren't consistent for me. Timothy is called Timothy for most of the story and then all of the sudd

Hearts in Harmony was a cute love story with a happy ending but there was just a little too much drama along the way. There were a lot of twists and turns and unknowns in this story but ultimately some of it was just too over the top for me to completely believe what played out.

While I didn't love this one I did like it. It was a good book. While some of the characters were over the top I really liked Elahna & Tim and their relationship. Childhood crushes turned to something more is near th

Hearts in Harmony begins with Elahna running to a theatre to listen to a singer for the 12th time. She loved his "chocolate" voice and she just had to hear it again- even though she has heard him since the third grade! Timothy is her best friend's, Merry, brother. However, she hasn't seen either of them in over 5 years as she went to school but had to quit to help her mother run her business after her sister's death 1 year prior. The story reflects the ups/downs of this relationship as Elahna se ...more

Hearts in Harmony by Raine Gillespie (book 1 in the Love Notes series) is a cute contemporary romance novella. The story is about a young woman, Elahna, who ends up having to come home to help her mother, after her sister dies in an accident. Coming home also puts her in the path of her childhood crush, older brother (Tim) of her best friend. He inherited his grandfather’s theater and is an actor/singer/playwright. The pair ends up trying to solve the problem/mystery behind why the theater is in ...more

Frankly, I expected much more from this short novel after reading most of the reviews. I hate to rain on the parade of positive reviews, but I simply must call it the way I see it. I am a clean romance fan. But I am definitely not a fan of sophomoric, shallow story telling. Realism is important, but next to non-existent in this offering. The author demonstrates a 3rd Grade understanding of police work and how police interview suspects. A heroine who is a genius with numbers and instant recall of ...more

Hearts in Harmony

Elahna and Tim’s story begins for Elahna in third grade. For Tim in Fourth grade. Things don’t take off till many years later. Elahna and Tim crash into each other after one of Tim’s performances. That is probably one of my favorite parts is when Elahna crashes into Tim’s fancy BMW! She doesn’t have the money to fix it so she works for him at the theater. Inserting a fantastic supporting cast of Valorie, Diana, Meredith oh and the cops! Tim and Elahna stumble upon a mystery and

I love that this is exactly what the series indicates...SWEET AND CLEAN!

Elahna has come home to help her mother...and it doesn't hurt that her best friend's brother, the one with the smooth voice, is singing in the local theater.

When Elahna literally runs into Tim's car after a show and knowing that she cannot afford to pay for the repairs Tim suggest that Elahna come work it off at the theater...as the janitor.

Angry, but willing to pay the cost in labor versus money, Elahna agrees.

In all honesty, this book was the one of the four that took me the longest amount of time to get into. It's not that I didn't like it, it's just that the beginning was maybe just a bit slow. I really did like Elahna, it seemed as though she had some of the very worst luck possible at the beginning. As the story goes along and I understood more of exactly what was going on, I liked the story more and more. I also really liked Timothy, at the beginning he kind of seems cruel, but by the end he had ...more

Hearts in Harmony is also in the Sweet and Clean Romance Collection but by a different author than the first two books I read. It is the start of a different series with characters separate from the first two books (Main Street Merchants). I had a harder time with this book and it wasn’t one I really connected with, especially in the beginning. I’m not really sure why, but this book just fell a bit flat for me. This book was different than the others because it had a bit of mystery associated wi ...more

I struggled trying to decide what to rate this book. I'm a cheesy person by nature so you would think cheesy in books wouldn't bother me. Most of the time I don't mind a little cheese, but this went a little too far. The story line itself was cute, but with every struggle the characters faced it just seemed to be resolved with little to no effort. Like miracle after miracle. The hardest part for me, though was the MC's willingness to give up justice for her sister's death. Too convenient and it ...more

This was a good book but a little edgier than I expected. Really not that much but there was a bit of a mystery going on as to what was happening with Timothy's theater. He was also not very likeable in the beginning. Elahna is an interesting character, she is very smart and has total recall (or something similar) when it comes to music and numbers. Sometimes I wish I could be like that.

But enjoyable story overall and not long.

This was over the top. The drama went on and on. It felt like this was an audition for a play write position. The obsession with the characters always going out to dinner. Clean romance.

Merged review:

interesting

This felt more like an audition for a play write. Or looking for funding of a play. The obsession of the restaurants. Clean. No emotional connections.

When I started this book, I was pretty sure I knew where it was going. I didn't. I expected a sweet love story and while I got that, I also enjoyed many adventuresome plot twists and suspenseful surprises. I finished reading the whole thing in two days. Very fun read with a memorable setting.

Although the general storyline had potential, I felt like the conflicts were too quickly resolved (confessions were stated without pressure) and the romance had no development. I enjoyed the setting and the characters were pleasant.

The story was predictable but likable. I was a little embarrassed about her pervasiveness and some of the other situations like the dad, the sisters accident, the crazy lady working at the theatre. They all seemed a little extreme.

Very cheesy. Didn't buy the chemistry. Glad I got it for free.

Moral Note: Drinking and driving, attempted murder. Clean language & romance.
