Overview

London weather is chilly—and the social scene even more so.
Luckily, Bridget Forrester is just getting warmed up…

Bridget longs to meet a gentleman who doesn’t mention her beautiful sister upon shaking her hand. But since being branded a shrew after a disastrous social season, Bridget knows she’s lucky to even have a man come near her. It’s enough to make a lady flee the country…

So Bridget heads to Venice for music lessons with the renowned Italian composer Vincenzo Carpenini, with whom she’s been corresponding. But not only is Carpenini not expecting her, he doesn’t even remember her! His friend, theater owner Oliver Merrick, does, though. And one look into her tantalizing green eyes has him cursing his impulsive letter-writing, which brought her across the continent. Yet before Merrick can apologize, Carpenini has ordered her away.

Little does either man know that they will soon be embroiled in a wager that will require the beautiful Miss Forrester’s help—or that there’ll be far more at stake in this gamble than money…

Meet the Author

Kate Noble loves books, romances especially. But coming from a family of doctors, scientists, and mathematicians, she didn’t discover she was adept at writing until, oh, about junior year of high school. This discovery came as something of a relief, as she was hopeless at memorizing Latin names for all the bones in the human body. The Heisenberg uncertainty principle eludes her to this day. Kate lives in Los Angeles.

A beautifully moving and well paced adventure. Bridget was a most delightful protagonist, and Kate Noble did an amazing job of making the reader feel with her. That emotional intensity made a book dealing so much with the power of music so effective. Somehow Ms. Noble brought out the emotions as you read about the music without hearing a single note aloud. It was vivid and inspired and one of my favorite books so far this year. Definitely worth reading.

Let It Be Me is musically uplifting story that transforms music into a love story. Bridget is the middle sister who finds herself in the shadows of her older sister. Bridget is musically inclined but suffers from stage fright. She receives a letter that states renowned Italian composer Vincenzo Carpenini would like her to be his student but when he doesn't come to England Bridget convinces her family to travel to Venice. The letter however is written by Oliver Merrick, Vincenzo's friend. Oliver is trying to raise money for his own theatre. During the lessons Oliver does everything he can to ease Bridget's fears and assist her to become the best pianist she can be and along the way they fall in love. This story involves competition, betrayal, misunderstandings and an incredible love story.

This was one of the more memorable romances I've read.  Great characters, strong story and wonderful love story!  It also seemed well researched.  I highly recommend this book.
