About The Book

THE SUMMER OF 1969
From the moment Jane Quinn steps barefoot onto the main stage at Island Folk festival, her golden hair glinting, her voice soaring into the summer dusk, a star is born – and so is a passionate love story.
Jane’s band hits the road with none other than Jesse Reid, the musician whose bright blue eyes are setting hearts alight everywhere. And as the summer streaks by in a haze of crowds, wild nights and magenta sunsets, Jane is pulled into the orbit of Jesse’s star.But Jesse’s rise could mean Jane’s fall. And when she discovers a dark secret beneath his music, she picks up her guitar and writes her heartache into the album that could make or break her: Songs in Ursa Major.


My Thoughts

There’s nothing more that feels like summer than a Music Festival! The sun, the good vibrations and a good romance, of course!
This book will transport the reader to 1969; where Jane Quinn will captivate the masses eclipsing the famous Jesse Reid guitar riffs.
This is not a book to read deeply about the plot and decide if you want to read it or not, is a book to let you transport to another place in another moment, without any responsibilities or work to think; simply letting these amazing characters fill your mind and soul!
Don’t doubt that this book will leave you a mark, the characters are deep and their stories will move you, believe me. Because even if this is an amazing book about music with their own soundtrack, the characters are well portrayed and with real traits, it’s difficult to not understand them and when they are doing wrong, try to forgive them.
But remember that being famous is not as shiny as it seems and that Jane will have her own problems to adapt the starship and some secrets to discover from Jesse.
But, are you ready for it? Are you ready for the read of the summer, “Songs In Ursa Major”?
