Jodi Burkitt is alone again and telling herself she likes it that way. Her ex took everything with her—the friends, the fun, and the daughter that Jodi had loved like her own. Her heart hammered shut, she’s got plenty to distract her from the empty days and nights, especially her latest home renovation project, which has tied up all her time and most of her money.
When Jodi discovers a hidden jewelry box in the walls of the home she’s renovating, she turns to her ex’s friend, librarian Michele Galveston, to help piece together the mystery inside the box.
Michele Galveston is anything but a quiet librarian—she sings in a local band and has a talent for never following anyone’s rules but her own. Notorious for her dating history more than her voice, Michele has a reputation for rarely staying with a woman for more than a few months and Jodi knows she should steer clear. But the closer they get to solving the mystery in the jewelry box, the closer Jodi and Michele get to each other.
Will Jodi risk her heart again—especially for someone as emotionally unavailable as Michele? And will Michele finally find a way to trust someone enough to share the secret she’s kept hidden for so many years? With Jodi’s wounded heart and Michele’s love ’em and leave ’em history, it’s likely that love songs and life might be two very different things.
