As Seen Through My Specs

Is it better to burn out or fade away?

What happens to a rock star when the spotlight is gone, what does he do when the crowds fade… well if your Adrian Graves you write and record the theme song for a popular PBS show for kids about a detective cat of course.  This career turn is how he ends up crossing paths with Katrina (Tree/Kat) Lewis.

A widow and a volunteer at a her local library tree is putting together a program which includes music, a lucky find, a CD of children’s songs, in her local used book store brings her the perfect idea, find the man who recorded the theme song to her daughter Abbey’s favorite show and bring him to the library for a show.

Tree is a research librarian so finding Adrian turns out to be easier than she expected, and he grudgingly agrees to come and sing for the kiddies.  He show’s up slightly intoxicated and the fun begins.

From the first pages and the sun kink to the last word on the last page this story, Ms. Topper’s debut novel not only does not disappoint, but sucks you in and and tugs at your heart.  The story has so many twists and turns that you never see things coming until they’ve hit you smack in the heart.  The story weaves in the luster of New York city and it’s small town suburbs.

I fell in love with Kat and Adrian and ate their story right up.  I would highly recommend picking up the story and digging in.  The story is definitely currently in my top 10 books of the year!
