Heard It in a Love Song – Tracey Garvis Graves – Review 5/5 stars – Released 11/9/21

I absolutely loved “The Girl He Used To Know,” so when I saw this on NetGalley, I immediately requested it, and was so thrilled and thankful to St. Martin’s Press via NetGalley for approving! This is amazing, and so much more than a second-chance love story. It follows Layla, a recently divorced music teacher, and past rocker chic, -and single parent Josh, who’s waiting on paperwork for his own divorce from his high school sweetheart. They meet at Josh’s daughters school drop-off every morning, where Layla is her music teacher. A friendship blossoms that has them questioning if they’re ready for something more, or is it too soon. They both have the same thoughts about not jumping in to a relationship too quick the second time around. With their lives starting over post-divorce, both are coming to terms with their new independence, being alone and for Layla, -finding what she wants most in life. I enjoyed the flashbacks of Layla and Josh’s previous relationships, and the references to musical lyrics and bands that put me in mind of Daisy Jones and the Six. Not to be missed!
