Like a Love Song Receives a Romantic Times *Top Pick* 4.5 star Review

Like a Love Song received a glowing "Top Pick"  4 1/2 star review from Romantic Times!
What's really gratifying: this reviewer really "heard" the heart of this story.

“Eide writes a touching story about two unlikely heroes who sacrifice themselves to love those who are not loved by others. Sue is a haunted character whose past has an unforgiving grip on her. Joe finds himself once again facing the lies of his past that left him desperate and alone. Readers will genuinely love both of these characters and be heartbroken at what they go through. This emotional book touches on very tender subjects in a tactful, graceful way that allows readers to understand what is happening without being overwhelmed by it. Eide is a phenomenal writer who once again displays her wisdom in the way she tells the story.”

~Sarah Frobisher, Romantic Times

What a wonderful, thoughtful review, and what an honor to receive RT's highest rating.

Like a Love Song releases April 30, 2015 and is available for pre-order (eBook now, paperback soon) here:

No comments:



I've published five novels and 2 novellas (more about those on my website.) I've been writing all my life, but decided in 2007 to get serious about being published.

I love action movies and Jane Austen. (she’s dead, I know. I found that out when I tried to get her to endorse my novel)

They let me play Bass guitar and sing in a worship band.

I can produce 4 dozen homemade cinnamon rolls in a flash for a crowd of drooling young adults. Or publishing house editors.

I used to have a Harley. Now we have six (going on seven) grandkiddos. Decent trade, really.

I am a proud Grammy. Don't even think about taking candy from my babies.

I hate shopping (Yes, I'm aware that I'm a girl)

I've lived in Oregon all my life, spent time in Eugene (Go DUCKS!), Springfield, Reedsport, and Smith River. Which is not really a town, but a river, about 70 miles long, a tributary of the Umpqua River in southwest Oregon.

Although it's not a town, it is a community with a strong sense of pioneer history. It's cool to say you've lived there, especially if you lived there during the days when you had to take a boat to school. No joke! The old farmhouse my grandfather and my mother grew up in still stands, nestled into a narrow, pasture carpeted valley, complete with a swimmin' hole and its own 'crick'. It may turn up in one of my novels.

There's a rumor that my ancestors had a connection with the Mafia back in Sicily. I used to fantasize as a kid about a big black limo with tinted windows pulling up and whisking me away from school. Ahhh. So THAT'S why I'm having so much trouble conjugating my dangling participles now.

NOT RANDOM: I am challenged by the truth and amazed by the grace of God. And it's either in spite of or because of that grace that I hold a PhD in Learning Stuff the Hard Way.
