Ian Harrington is sober for the first time in years, happily married to Sarah with a child on the way, and their band Something is on the verge of major success. An opportunity to tour in his native England gives him the chance to further reconcile with his father, but his dad’s new romance interferes with his plans. In the middle of Ian’s family drama, a series of events beyond his and Sarah’s control threatens to destroy their happiness, their family, and the band’s future.
Behind Blue Eyes is a new four-part series following a young musician's turbulent life as he makes his rock and roll dreams come true in a city far from where he grew up. Equal parts family saga, love story, and rock and roll circus, this first novel will take you back to the late 70s in Toronto for a dramatic roller-coaster ride through the world of music.
Inspired by the Pete Townshend song made famous by The Who, the series is at once a nostalgic love letter to the author's hometown and to the music she listened to while growing up there.

Wow, what can I say? This book blew me away. It is not what I was expecting to read, it caught me totally off guard - but it was brilliant. It tells the story of Ian and his love for Sarah in a way that has you hanging on to each word – the love, the tragedy, the strength he finds in caring for his daughter is bittersweet, and so touching. There were many times when I wanted to shake Ian and tell him to get a grip, but at the same time, my heart broke for him. At other times, I was proud of him LOL. The story, like ‘Love Reign O’er Me’, is beautifully written, and flowed effortlessly which is such a pleasure to read. The characters are all amazingly well developed – so well in fact that each and every one stays with you long after you have put the book down. The author has done a really, really good job with their development. I love this story and will give this book a few days to sink in before I start the next one. I am so glad I found this series, it is one of the best I have read in a very long time.
