It’s the last line here that has me scratching my head. Check the whole thing first, though, and then get to the last line:

Juliet Lyman is a senior executive at Yesterday Records. Music is her passion and she’s very good at her job. That’s why her famously philanthropic boss Gideon sends her to Majorca, Spain to work with a very tortured, but talented client. Lionel Harding is one of the best song writers of the 20th century, the multi-Grammy award-winning lyricist of the third most recorded song in history. But now he’s 42 and six months overdue on the his latest paid assignment. Juliet is not leaving Majorca without either new lyrics or a very large check.

To Juliet, business comes first. Emotions are secondary, and love isn’t even on the menu. But to Lionel, love is everything, and he blames Gideon for his broken heart. He’s determined to show Juliet that nothing is more important than love, but Juliet is just as determined to get Lionel to create the music that made him famous. If she can sign up local talent, even better. Her new friend Gabriella has a voice like an angel, but she’s not interested in fame. Her grandmother, Lydia, wants the world for Gabriella, and she wants Juliet’s help to give it to her.

As her professional and personal lives start to mix for the first time, Juliet is forced to reevaluate her priorities. Gideon hasn’t been totally honest, and love may be the only thing that gives them all what they need.

Island in the Sea is Anita Hughes’ captivating sixth novel, filled with exotic descriptions of food, fashion, and romance.

Okay, so this book is all about coercing music out of musical people, right? And then we get to this last line. exotic descriptions of food, fashion, and romance. That’s almost enough to make a girl walk away!

Hello? A lot of us read for the music!

And yeah, I want to read this one. You better believe it! Not only does the main plot revolve around music, so does a subplot! How often do we see that?

Bring it. Bring it soon, and bring it right to Susan’s inbox.

(This is described as being “A Majorca Love Story,” but Goodreads doesn’t list it as being part of a series. So I’m not sure if it is a series or not… who cares, when the music is so important?
