Once-famous singer Anjuli Carver has returned to tiny Heaverlock Village alone and nearly broke. She’s poured every last penny into a rambling Victorian manor, hoping to start over. Trouble is, her money pit is falling to pieces and the only restoration architect for miles is Rob Douglas…her ex-fiancé.
For eight years, Rob has regretted not telling Anjuli why he never answered her letters. Being left at the altar broke his heart, but being used for sex one night in London after the fact nearly drove him to the edge of sanity, and he’ll be damned if he allows Anjuli to wreak havoc on his life again. He’ll restore her manor, all right, and give her taste of her own medicine while he’s at it.
But how long can revenge last when memories of their shared past keep rushing to the surface?
Soon, Rob wants answers. Why did Anjuli leave the international spotlight to become a recluse in the Scottish Borderlands? And why does she refuse to sing? Anjuli wants nothing more than to be left alone with her grief, even as she struggles to keep her sexy fantasies about Rob in check. With gossipy villagers, interfering friends and more secrets between them than notes on a scale, Anjuli and Rob will need to find forgiveness in order to work together, then decide if they’re willing to risk it all on an encore performance.
A young woman runs, leaving the man she vowed to love waiting at the church. A young man throws himself completely into building his architectural legacy to forget her and the pain of loosing her
Anjuli Carver is so filled with the pain of loss that she suffers the loss of her voice, trusts in others and looses the money she earned with her voice. She returns home to rebuild her life only to watch it spin out of control once again. But Rob Douglas has secrets of his own.
Can they leave the past behind and build on the love they once knew?
This story is filled with so much character that the secondary characters take on a story all their own! I must admit that Mrs. P is the one whose story screams through my head to be told next. I’ve enjoyed reading Pitch Imperfect and I’m hoping that Ms. Alden can be convinced to make it the beginning of series about the folks in Heaverlock Village.
I recommend Pitch Imperfect by Elise Alden and give it three stars.

Elise reads, writes and revels in romance, and is never happier than when caught up in a heart-thumping, sweat-your-socks-off tale—hers or somebody else’s. She loves creating stories about flawed characters, people for whom love isn’t simply a question of boy-meets-girl, but a gut wrenching journey of transformation.
