The Magic Jukebox sits in the Faulk Street Tavern in the quiet seaside town of Brogan’s Point, Massachusetts. No one knows what classic rock songs will come out of the jukebox when a coin is inserted, but every now and then, the jukebox will play a song that casts a spell on two bar patrons—a song that will change their lives and open their hearts to love.
Caleb Solomon’s office air conditioner is on the fritz. Although not his choice, he winds up meeting with a difficult but profitable client in the pleasant chill of the air-conditioned Faulk Street Tavern. It’s there that high school teacher Meredith Benoit finds him. Due to a silly prank, her job and her reputation are in jeopardy. She needs a lawyer, fast. But the Magic Jukebox starts playing “Heat Wave,” and a hot wave of passion crashes over Caleb and Meredith, catching them in its undertow and carrying them off.
Very good book in this series. I continue to enjoy the stories about people meeting and falling in love through a jukebox song.
The story did have many repetitive statements throughout the book. A little less of that would make the story go by quicker. However, I will continue to read the series.
Like other reviewers have said, I enjoyed this book but did feel like it ended much too abruptly.
Do Caleb and Meredith end up getting married? Was he actually proposing? What ends up happening with Jerry Felton and the students who had caused trouble for Meredith?
These are all questions that the book left up in the air, and I doubt the next title will answer them since it’s focused on another couple. I’d love for the author to update this book with an epilogue or different ending so that we’re not left wondering about all these things. Other than that, this was a good, simple read.
I enjoyed this story very much. I would have liked to read an outcome of the students involved; speaking with the principal.
