Book Summary from the author's website - Patti Callahan Henry
In The Perfect Love Song, Callahan Henry tells the story of Jimmy Sullivan, who has been living on the road with his brother, Jack, and their band The Unknown Souls. The road is Jimmy’s only home and music his only savior until he falls in love with a beautiful girl, Charlotte Carrington. Spending time with Charlotte inspires Jimmy to write a love song for her, which becomes an overnight sensation and is dubbed “The Perfect Love Song.”
As Jimmy finds himself caught up in the desire for fame and fortune, the genuine lyrics of the song are overshadowed by his career ambitions. He begins to lose touch with Charlotte and makes a decision to miss his brother’s wedding in Ireland for a chance to put on a show in New York City.
But on Christmas Eve Jimmy comes to a crossroads: Will he finally get the chance to perform on one of the biggest stages of his career?—or will he find his way back to his family, to Ireland…and to the love of his life, Charlotte?
My Review - 3 More Sugar Please
I will start with my favourite part of the book. Every chapter started with a quote, all special in there own way, here is one I enjoyed and think represents the book perfectly.
I found this book to be about an emotional issue but it was to light so I wasn't touched by the overall story. I enjoyed the journey that Jimmy had to go through but it still feels unbelievable to me. You may say well that is the point, it is a Holiday Story, a time for miracles but there was just 1 to many 'consequences'. And overall I didn't feel like it was the Holiday's, specifically Christmas time.
I also didn't enjoy the it is The Perfect Love Song vs it is The Perfect Christmas Song, something about this bothered me.
For me it was a nice quick read, but I wanted more.
BTW - This book is gorgeously packaged, sweet cover.
Thanks to the Publisher for sharing with me.
