Monday Must Reads...WANT by Stephanie Lawton!
Not familiar with this little feature? It's simple, really. Monday Must Reads! is a feature I created to showcase books that I think you, well, Must Read (ha!).
This week's selection is a good one. One of my new faves, actually. It's by an author that is one of the nicest people I've "met"--who just happens to live down the street from me! (okay, technically an hour, but still) This is her debut novel, and it's filled with awesome characters, both darkness and humor, and music. In other words...it's a winner! Trust me when I say that you simply Must Read...

product description from goodreads.com
Julianne counts the days until she can pack her bags and leave her old-money, tradition-bound Southern town where appearance is everything and secrecy is a way of life. A piano virtuoso, she dreams of attending a prestigious music school in Boston. Failure is not an option, so she enlists the help of New England Conservatory graduate Isaac Laroche to help her.
She can’t understand why he suddenly gave up Boston’s music scene to return to the South. He doesn’t know her life depends on escaping it. Julianne must face down madness from without, just as it threatens from within. Isaac must resist an inappropriate attraction, but an indiscretion at a Mardi Gras ball-the pinnacle event for Mobile’s elite-forces their present wants and needs to collide with sins of the past.
Will Julianne accept the help she’s offered and get everything she ever wanted, or will she self-destruct and take Isaac down with her?
This awesome description just doesn't do this book justice--believe me, it's one you're gonna love!
