Heard It in a Love Song
by Graves, Tracey Garvis






"From Tracey Garvis Graves, the bestselling author of The Girl He Used to Know comes a love song of a story about starting over and second chances in Heard It in a Love Song. Love doesn't always wait until you're ready. Layla Hilding is thirty-five and recently divorced. Struggling to break free from the past-her glory days as the lead singer in a band and a ten-year marriage to a man who never put her first-Layla's newly found independence feels a lot like loneliness. Then there's Josh, the single dad whose daughter attends the elementary school where Layla teaches music. Recently separated, he's still processing the end of his twenty-year marriage to his high school sweetheart. He chats with Layla every morning at school and finds himself thinking about her more and more. Equally cautious and confused about dating in a world that favors apps over meeting organically, Layla and Josh decide to be friends with the potential for something more. Sounds sensible and way too simple-but when two people are on the rebound, is it heartbreak or happiness that's a love song away?"-

Music teacher Layla Hilding-Cook's rock star dreams died during her marriage, but, post-divorce, she is getting back into playing guitar and singing. Josh Summers' daughter, Sasha, is one of Layla's students, and he and Layla develop a spark of something at the morning school drop-off. Josh is in the middle of his own divorce, and neither are quite ready for a new romance, so they decide to be friends with potential. The more time they spend together, though, the more they like each other, but they both bear scars from their failed marriages. The narrative alternates between Layla and Josh's perspectives, both in the present and the past as readers watch them fall in and out of love with their spouses. Both are appealing, sensible characters who have good banter, and it is especially satisfying to watch Layla's journey back to her rock-and-roll roots. Graves' latest (after The Girl He Used to Know, 2019) is a quiet, romantic novel that delves deeply into how relationships fall apart and how love can blossom again.
