Overview

A responsibility she never wanted. Choices she never wanted to make.

The beautiful piano sitting in the corner of Jill King’s apartment begs to be played. For over a year, it has sat untouched, ever since a terrible accident shattered Jill’s ambition of becoming a concert pianist. The ragged scar on her left hand is a cruel and constant reminder of the death of her dream.

But another dream is about to come to life — an unexpected, horrifying dream that will present Jill with a responsibility she never wanted. And choices she never wanted to make.

Hundreds of lives depend on Jill’s willingness to warn her small, oceanside town in Nova Scotia of a nameless, looming disaster. But doing so could cost Jill her reputation, jeopardize the political career of the man she loves, and ruin their plans for a future together.

The fate of an entire community hangs in the balance as Jill wrestles with the cost of heeding one still, small voice.

    Good book

    A little slow at first, but the story does get better as you read the book. I did like the book but it wasn't as good as many other Lori Copeland books.

    One Dream Dies a new one comes

    When Ginny emailed me and asked if I would be an influencer for her book I jumped at the opportunity. I have found her books to be enjoyable, whether they are a ¿love¿ story or a mystery her stories are well written and engaging. I haven¿t read anything by Lori Copeland, but had seen many positive reviews on her books. I got what I expected and more.

    It was very easy for me to relate with Jill King. Her dreams crashed in a subway accident in the previous year. She loves Greg Bradford and wants to support him as he runs for political office. As she deals with the past and begins moving forward in her relationship with Greg and in her life, she experiences a terrifying dream. She isn¿t sure whether she is going crazy but knows she has to tell people of her beloved town of the pending danger.

    The authors do a great job giving you the back story while moving you forward at a good pace. The interactions between characters is very believable and rings of what life would be like for Jill after facing the lost of her dream life to have it replaced by a recurring nightmare.

    This book caused me to pause and take a look at how I would react if I were Jill or if someone close to me were Jill. Especially in the United States we tend to be very cynical and closed minded to things we don¿t understand and are quick to label someone as a ¿nut job.¿

    This is a wonderful story of love and commitment and in stepping out of one¿s comfort zone to take a risk. At the end of the book the authors give you a website you can go and read the original ending to the story. I would encourage you to do that only after you read the published ending. I read the alternate ending last night and I¿m still not sure how I would have reacted if they ended the story with that ending.

    As mentioned earlier I did receive this copy from the author, however, I¿m under no obligation to give anything but my opinion.

    A gripping story I couldn't put down!

    Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith did a great job penning Lost Melody. They did a great job of combining drama, humor and suspense. I especially love the 'Real Romance' between Jill and Greg. You see and feel all the doubts and fears that Greg has about Jill and her dream and he chooses to love her through it all anyway.

    I received the book in the mail on a Friday Afternoon, by Saturday morning I finished it. And when I say Saturday morning, I mean, the wee hours of the morning. There was no putting it down for me!

    This book will keep you guessing. It's not predictable, it's a book that will make you wonder if everything is going to turn out ok at the end.

    I hope to see more Copeland/Smith books in the future!

    A beautiful, haunting storyline

    Jill King's shining career as a concert pianist died a painful death when a subway crash severely injured her left hand. As she lay in the wreckage next to a mysterious, dying stranger, he promised her that God would not take away her dream.

    But He did.

    Jill's trying to survive, making every attempt to bury her bitterness and move on. And she's making progress, until a terrifying dream changes her life and makes her doubt her own sanity. When she finally accepts the dream as a warning of overwhelming disaster, it's becomes her responsibility to warn the town. In doing so, she runs the risk of destroying her relationship with the man she loves¿along with his political career.

    Lost Melody is a beautiful, haunting tale of lost dreams and wounded spirits¿and of blind obedience to God's voice, despite a heartful of scars, damaged faith, and high-impact risk.

    Copeland and Smith deliver a gripping storyline that forces the reader to find out what happens on the next page. The next day. The next dream.

    A beautifully written, unforgettable tale.

    a strong character driven whimsical inspirational tale

    In Manhattan, Jill King rides the train to Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute to attend a workshop culminating with her playing in the great hall. Jill and friendly Robert chat and as they shake hands, the train crashes. She is pinned down by something but by her side also trapped is Robert.

    One year later, Jill suffers from headaches and is haunted by her piano sitting unused in her apartment as the horrific train accident ended her dream of becoming a concert pianist; the scar on her left hand is proof that she will never play like she once did. She also wonders about Robert who vanished once help arrived. She hides in Seaside Cove, Nova Scotia while her nana and her boyfriend Greg Bradford worry about her and her mom struggles with recovering from a stroke. However, Jill suffers from a nightmare that has her panicking over an inferno destroying her town. She sounds the alarm at a cost to Greg's political ambitions and their relationship while the townsfolk assume she lost more than her musical ability.

    Lost Melody is a strong character driven whimsical inspirational tale starring a flawed individual who suffers from PTSD. Jill is terrific as she holds the story line together while receiving the pity stares of the neighbors she wants to save from the disaster she dreams is coming. Using the disaster of the Mont-Blanc in Halifax Harbor in 1917 as a base, Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith provide a heavenly tale of a woman who learns about pride being a deadly sin as there are plenty of stanzas to play perhaps not in Carnegie hall, but in Seaside Cove if one chooses life.
