Please Don’t Stop the Music

Jane Lovering

How much can you hide?

Jemima Hutton is determined to build a successful new life and keep her past a dark secret. Trouble is, her jewellery business looks set to fail - until enigmatic Ben Davies offers to stock her handmade belt buckles in his guitar shop and things start looking up, on all fronts.

But Ben has secrets too. When Jemima finds out he used to be the front man of hugely successful Indie rock band Willow Down, she wants to know more. Why did he desert the band on their US tour? Why is he now a semi-recluse?

And the curiosity is mutual - which means that her own secret is no longer safe ...

... Darker than most chick-lit offerings, Please Don’t Stop the Music proves a compelling story featuring two complex but likeable characters.
Emotionally charged but also full of humour, this is an accomplished debut from a promising new author.

...This is a good book but I suspect that there will be better to come from this author as she develops her craft and allows full rein to her glorious sense of humour. She's got a very good plot here and some characters you really warm to. It's a couple of days since I finished the book and I've been wondering about them, as though they're people that I know. There's a sensitive hand with disabilities and problems; you can understand why people hate them, but they don't diminish the characters in your eyes. More please!
