Marriage, Melodies and Rewritten Conclusions by V Joy Palmer. A Review

About The Book

Kaylee McGrurd feels like life has left her behind. Her best friends have all moved out, married, or are in the process of matrimony. Meanwhile, she’s lost another job, and her daily diet consists of noodles that are better suited to packing material.

Then Kaylee’s ex, Gabe Sanders, enters the equation.

Gabe walked out on Kaylee without warning or explanation nine years earlier, but now he’s been brought back to the area for the unforeseeable future. And he’s in need of a new lead vocalist for his wedding band.

A dwindling account balance calls for desperate measures, and Kaylee reluctantly accepts Gabe’s offer. While the former couple works together in the midst of happy marriages and heartfelt melodies, secrets and the need for forgiveness highlight the strife between them…and the hope that maybe God’s rewriting the conclusion to their story.

My Thoughts

Themes of Second chances, forgiveness and contentment fill the pages of this book.
We see both Gabe and Kaylee struggle to be better people. From Kaylee struggling with feelings of being left behind and seeing that everyone around her seemed to be moving on to better things to having her ex-fiance suddenly show up in town, I loved her growth throughout the process, she learns to extend forgiveness to be content and heal from the hurts she has suffered.
I also loved Gabe, his heart and desire to be better, his struggle with guilt was all to real and I enjoyed every minute of it. No one is perfect.
This was a first for me by this author but I enjoyed the story.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. All opinions expressed are solely mine.
