Review - Beautiful Music by Marianne Evans

Beautiful Music by Marianne Evans
Book two of the Sal's Place series.



Escaping the black residue of her past, Callie Phillips finds sanctuary at Queen of Angels Church. The reformed rebel is a middle-school choir teacher by day, and music director on the weekends, mingling with parish members over breakfast at her favorite after-church haunt, Sal’s Place.
Luke West embraces a devout belief in the sacredness of human life. An EMT, he takes charge of life-and-death situations and acts as guardian for his ten-year-old niece, Dawn West who has a child’s zest for life and a God-given gift for music.
When Callie takes the little girl under her wing and becomes a mentor and surrogate mother to Dawn, Callie and Luke are thrown together. She’s drawn to the dynamic and handsome EMT, but her sullied past threatens any future she and Luke might share. Despite Callie’s former life, can Luke’s love teach her there’s nothing God’s mercy can’t wipe clean? Will Luke forgive even the bleakest form of sin and desperation in order to embrace the love of an extraordinary woman?

My review:
Laughter and tears...this book from Marianne Evans has it all. And plenty of it. Callie and Luke's story is sure to touch your heart and linger long after the last page is turned. As an EMT, Luke holds all life sacred. Callie's past is dark and scarred. But music and love and a really cute kid called Dawn help Luke to break down the walls. Until Ms. Evans throws in a twist that turns everything on it's head.
