Heard it in a Love Song – Published 2021
“Layla Hilding is thirty-five and recently divorced. Struggling to break free from the past—her glory days as the lead singer in a band and a ten-year marriage to a man who never put her first—Layla’s newly found independence feels a lot like loneliness.
Then there’s Josh, the single dad whose daughter attends the elementary school where Layla teaches music. Recently separated, he’s still processing the end of his twenty-year marriage to his high school sweetheart. He chats with Layla every morning at school and finds himself thinking about her more and more.
Equally cautious and confused about dating in a world that favors apps over meeting organically, Layla and Josh decide to be friends with the potential for something more. Sounds sensible and way too simple—but when two people are on the rebound, is it heartbreak or happiness that’s a love song away?” – Goodreads

You may recall that On The Island is my favorite book ever, so I was so excited to read this book!
I thought this book was really low stress and character driven. It wasn’t the edge of your seat read that OTI has, but instead it gives you the warm, peaceful feeling of a small-town slow-burn romance between two people who are just trying to figure out who they are post-separation from their exes. I really liked this book!
