In Tune with Love: An April Wedding Story by Amy Matayo is a sweet tale of a young woman, April Quinn, who writes lyrics on napkins, toilet paper roles, and any piece of paper she can get her hands on. April works at a bar where musicians have an opportunity to share their talent. She holds a grudge when lyrics she wrote is heard on the radio and quickly hits the top charts, sung by a former coworker, Jack Vaughn, who must have stolen one of the pieces of paper with lyrics written on it.
April’s sister, Kristin, is planning her own wedding and fires her wedding planner. April soon gets appointed to be the wedding planner with four days to go before her dear sister ties the knot. With no experience and a very low budget, April does what she thinks will work while her sister tears apart her ideas. The wedding singer cancels as well, which her sister decides to hire an old friend, Jack Vaughn, who happens to be in town.
While April and Jack reunite after years of April’s grudge, they hit it off well as April shares what her sister wants. Jack eventually gets the courage to talk to April about those lyrics. Can April forgive Jack? Will Kristin’s wedding be what she dreamed it would be?
This novella took me a while to read as I’ve been suffering from a headache called hemicrania continua. This headache makes it difficult to concentrate on anything and ruins any moment of good moods. But I did get to finish it!
This little love story isn’t really what I thought it would be from the title. I thought since the story started off about April, it would be about April’s wedding, when it was really her sister’s wedding. Maybe since I hadn’t read the whole series of wedding novellas, I started the book without the necessary information needed to understand what’s going on.
Overall, it was a nice light read that took me away from the compassion fatigue I get from work. So, a nice “getaway” for me! I encourage everyone who suffers from compassion fatigue to find a genre of reading to get you away from reality for as short or long as you need it! This novella is one of those great getaways!
