I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review as part of Promotional Book Tours. All opinions and experiences are my own.
Maris has always had huge dreams of being on Broadway. Ever since her very first performance as a child, she has envisioned herself on the stage under the shining lights. Now she has to decide whether she should give up her wonderful life to chase those dreams. When her parents announce they are moving, she comes across a long-lost family treasure. She doesn’t realize that this treasure may hold the key to her future and to all her dreams coming true.
And if that wasn’t sign enough, a mysterious stranger throws another wrench in the mix at a dazzling rooftop party benefiting the Arts. These could be signs of things to come. But will she remain content in her perfect world, or will she step into the unknown world she has always dreamed of?
With great characters to build on, this story grabbed me. Who hasn't had a dream? Maris had a great life, a job teaching vocal lessons, a great boyfriend, but also a lingering dream. I think we all have that "path not taken" sometime in our life, but sometimes fate throws things at us to shake up our normal. Maris has to deal with what she sees as "normal" and figure out what she really wants in life.
I enjoyed the introduction of Beatrice, she was a great way for Maris to learn more about herself, as well as her grandmother. Loved the Sound of Music references in the book, Melissa Baldwin has a lot of fun with her stories and references.
Overall, a fun and memorable read. Definitely perfect for a cool fall evening or weekend guilty pleasure read!
