Overview

Sometimes it takes seeing the dream before we find the courage to face the nightmare.

Without realizing it, bestselling author Meg Scott, stepped into the life of her dreams. A new beachfront home on the West Coast; a far cry from her secluded home shared only with her faithful Irish setter on Martha’s Vineyard. A gig playing violin with a world renowned rock band about to depart on a European acoustic tour; friends that easily became the family she lost when young. And upon shaking hands with the band’s drummer, Jadon Hastings, she found love and desire never known beyond the stories she wrote.

Under a hazy California sun, Meg’s dream sits in clear view. To make it her own, she’ll have to confront not only her past, but her future. In doing so, she discovers - those you trust - can’t always be trusted.

Music and love come together in A Contented Mind: Love, Hope and the Complicated Mess of Redefining One's Life. Life is not always a easy step from A to B. Sometimes we are forced to change paths. Sometimes we take detours. Sometimes we chose to hide our real self from the world. But whatever way we travel through life we are still moving forward whether we like it or not. Meg, an author by trade and musician on the side, had a mix of life's obstacles thrown at her. She has struggled to face the world and to allow them to judge her freely as an author, so she writes under a pen name for the fear of criticism. She was attacked in her home and no longer felt safe so she moved to California. She has only one love, Bob her dog, before she starts playing her violin on her patio and her mysterious neighbor joins in with his piano perfectly. She is instantly and without explanation finding herself falling for the mysterious piano man next door. Through the pages of A Contented Mind you will flow through a gamete of emotions that are almost set to music. Passion, heartbreak, success and failure, betrayal and love linger within the pages of this novel. I really enjoyed this novel and rated it 4 stars. I hope you enjoy it too.

I couldn't put this magical love story down. I loved that it centered around a rock band. I also loved that it was about the challenges of loving yourself.

This book is an incredible peice of writing. From the very first page I was caught by the detail and characters. As I read this book, it was like having a mental movie play on in my head. It was so well written, as I read throughout the book my emotions were scattered as if I were in it myself. Laughter, romance, sadness etc., To anyone who wants an awesome reading experience, check out A Contented Mind written by my favorite talent Samantha Hoffman!!!
