Publisher's Summary

On the verge of turning 40, former Marine Cameron "Cam" Warren didn’t expect to be walking onto a community college campus to spend a year playing music. Instead of enjoying her career, Cam is still mourning the tragic death of her partner and fellow Marine Sharon. Five years have now passed but she is no further forward in dealing with her grief. Cam knows she needs to change so she can heal. Will taking a sabbatical to play the drums allow her to live fully again, connecting her to emotions in ways her autism has always prevented?

Jazz pianist and teacher Laura Clark has had enough of city life on the east coast and yearns for the quiet beauty of Colorado. When a faculty position opens at a small community college in Ft. Collins, she jumps at the chance to start a new life. However, what she couldn’t predict was that one of her star students was about to walk back into her life, 20 years later. 

When Cam is introduced to the new jazz ensemble director she is shocked to see her high school music teacher, a thousand miles away from the small town where Ms. Clark first introduced her to jazz. But Cam is no longer a kid, and as their chemistry grows stronger, Cam has to choose which path her life will take - will she choose love or will she choose fear? 

Dal Segno is a lesbian romance that shows the power of revisiting the past to create a completely different result. Everything changes the second time around....

Unfortunate

I had high hopes for this book but it's just boring. I found my self browsing social media while half listening. I enjoy this narrator's work but this book almost came across as juvenile, like the Young Adult genre instead of the middle aged characters that were written about. I definitely think that has more to do with the writing itself, but the narrator's earnestness contributes to that feel. I enjoy regular romances without murder or crime, so it's not a trope or genre issue. This book just didn't hold my interest. In fact, I didn't finish it.

Dal Segno

I had high hopes for Dal Segno going in based on other reviews. Maybe I need to listen to it again because I didn't have the same reaction that most have had with this. I found the beginning to be very good as the characters were developed and Cam (student) and Laura (teacher) were reunited after Cam's marine days. I enjoyed them getting to know each other again in an adult role instead of a high school student/teacher role. But once the two were together, that is where I began losing interest. There wasn't much additional "meat" to the story after that for me. Apart from Cam having to deal with losing her partner earlier and having to move on to love again, there just didn't seem to be a lot of plot movement. The last couple of hours drug for me. Typically I don't like romances that are so angst-driven that they bring the plot down. This story could have used a little more angst to drive things forward. The narration was ok, but there were times where it would have helped for the narration tone and pace to change with where things were in the story. I couldn't tell much difference between the characters in a bar to them being in bed. It all sounded the same. I received a copy of this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.

Such a wonderful mix!

Age gap, second love, slow burn, jazz. In addition to all those fun twists this was just a super sweet love story. My first experience with Jax Meyer’s work and very much looking forward to more. Stephanie Murphy did a great job of capturing the feelings and emotions with her narration.

All-around great read

As an autistic person, I thought the author did a great job portraying Cam. She wasn't a savant, just a regular person who happened to be autistic. I also appreciated that Laura was bisexual, as that part of the LGBT spectrum seems to be overlooked in lesfic. The story was great, and I'm looking forward to checking out more from Jax Meyer. Also, the narrator was wonderful.

Dal Segno

I believe this was Jax debute novel. The story I found very heart warming but I battled with the narration. Something just did not sit right with this narration. I have always enjoyed audio books as much as reading however I was left wishing I had just read this one. I have read other later stories by Jax and really enjoyed them and would definitely recommend her work.

A great story....

Jax Meyer did an incredible job of creating a story of love, respect, fear, adventure and growth between two women. I was attracted to the age gap between the characters and how it was dealt with here.. I also appreciate the teacher pupil aspect of the story. I don't want to say much as this is truly worth the listen. The narration that Stephanie Murphy provided was exceptional and spot on.

Enjoyable Read

Great debut novel. A very emotional story with charming, believable characters. It flows well with so many emotions, the ghostly visits during Cams dreams were a nice addition to the story. I enjoyed that the characters were older and that the romance took time to build. The telling of what Cam had to go through because of her autism in dealing in social settings was a great addition to the story. Great building of the characters and story line. Was well worth listening to.

Sweet slow burn romance with wonderful narration

This is a very sweet, well written slow burn romance. I very much enjoyed it. Stephanie Murphy did a wonderful job narrating it. She was able to distinguish the characters by her voice. She even did a midwestern accent when it was appropriate. The author was able to explore one of the characters being autistic and did a great job with that. I haven't had much exposure but it helped me to understand one person's presentation of their thought processes and coping mechanisms. I also enjoyed the musical references. This is my first book by this author but certainly not my last. I've already purchased another of her books. I received the book in exchange for an honest review.
