Perfect Tunes is an intoxicating blend of music, love, and family from one of the essential writers of the internet generation.” —STEPHANIE DANLER

Perfect Tunes is a zippy and profound story of love, loss, heredity, and parenthood. I gulped it down, as will all mothers, New Yorkers, music fans, and lovers of quick-moving novels that are both funny and deep. I loved every

    A really great concept for this book but I feel like it fell short for me... the character’s connections really lacked in my opinion. I felt like there wasn’t very much dialog between characters that was meaningful and it was hard for me to feel connected to them. I also think the book may need to divide up into a few more chapters, a lot of the book felt like a run on. I think this book has a lot of potential though!

    I received an ARC of this book through netgalley.

    An interesting story about love, ambition, motherhood and the sacrifices a woman makes to care for her child. Laura writes her first song when she is a young girl in Ohio. She doesn't know it's a perfect song but she knows music is an important part of herself. Life continues and Laura is living in New York with a roommate who introduces her to the music scene there.

    The story is character driven with some great insights into how heartache and unexpected circumstances can change the course of a
