Book Review: Imperfect Harmony by Jay Northcote

After the tragic loss of his partner of 20 years, John Fletcher is merely existing. An accomplished musician, he gave up all music and has absolutely no desire to ever play again. When his neighbor coaxes him into participating in a community choir, he finally begins to see and feel the beauty of music again thanks to the young and vivacious choir leader, Rhys Callington. Rhys has also experienced his fair share of loss, which prompted him to give up a promising music career.

As the two men learn more about each other and the things they have in common, romantic feelings take root, but John is hesitant due to their 19-year age gap. Will Rhys be able to convince John that he's worth the chance, and will both of them be able to move forward in love or be forever haunted by ghosts of the past?

This was truly an enjoyable book. Both John and Rhys are extremely likeable characters who were flawed, but had immensely big hearts. Given the fact that both men have lost loved ones in the past, I didn't feel as though he book was weighed down with angst. There were plenty of heartrending moments, but also sweet moments that made my heart swell! If you're looking for a relatively uncomplicated love story, this is a great one to try out!

An ARC of this book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
