Summary

After a lifetime of moving and change, Jan Carroll wants nothing more than to settle down and build a home. Then her father gets sick, and the stable - if solitary - life she's made as a high school geometry teacher in Spokane, Washington, threatens to crumble around her. She wants little to do with newcomer Tina Nelson, a shallow and unreliable playgirl. Especially since their mutual friend Brooke Stanton has been not-so-subtly matchmaking...

Tina, a graphic artist and musician, has vowed to spend her life free from the obligations that characterized her youth. No ties, no long-term commitments. But she agrees to travel to Spokane to help her cousin promote his business and, in a second moment of weakness, promises to contact Jan. Tina is certain her acquaintance with the too-logical and inflexible woman will be a short one.

Sometimes, though, love makes you throw away life's careful script. Can these women learn to improvise?

If ur a fiddler it's rough...

Struggled through the discription of tunes and sessions... And the way a fiddler thinks... The rest was great but, a consultation and more research would have been nice...

Decent Book!

I enjoyed listening to this book, was a decent sequel. I'd have to say that the narration made the book better. I liked the characters and enjoyed them for the most part but it seemed like there was just too much push and pull between the two. From the beginning, it was a total struggle and then magically things changed for them both and they're deeply in love. Talk about a whiplash moment but nonetheless, the interaction between the two was good when it was good. They story was predictable but still enjoyable. Overall decent and I would read the author again.

Excellent audio!

I loved Improvisation by KarisvWalsh. Excellent narration by Melissa Sternenberg. Great story. Love the setting in the Pacific Northwest. Sort of a sequel to Harmony. Not really sure. But we see some of the same characters.
