This started out reeaaaaaaalllllly slow to me Though I did like the premise that this was a Regency Romance that doesn't take place in England which is really nice but I did not like Carpenini And Kate Noble rather sneakily slow rolls the development of the Oliver character but once he kind of blossoms into full force which really doesn't happen til like the 60% mark then it was adorable and I thoroughly enjoyed Oliver hurray for introverted characters and loved the ending

review Let It Be Me

Let It Be MeUgh to make a lady flee the countrySo 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. Kate Noble has some good things going for her If she's in the right mood and the planets are aligned properly she can create a fantastic heroine Unfortunately her stories in the past were such that the idea seemed far better than the actual book that was the result of the idea Something was always missing or something is done in a way that had me going Honey why do you do that to your story Let It Be Me is easily one of the best books she has done so far but it's not going to change my current opinion of her books unfortunatelyBridget Forrester is a fantastic heroine It is as if the author had done some magic trick and snatched my mind and placed it inside the heroine's head because everything about Bridget's insecurities feels so real You know sometimes a person is uite normal in many ways but just can't fit in That's Bridget She loves music and she's never happier then when she's playing the piano but this isn't something that your average English lady in 1824 is encouraged to doThe poor dear is also constantly overshadowed by her sister who is the ideal English debutante in so many ways and as a result she often feels so insecure and even defensive when she's in town Her insecurities lead to become stand offish in society and she develops some kind of acerbic humor as a defense mechanism Without really doing anything she develops a reputation for being shrewish as well as weirdOne day she receives a letter from Vincenzo Carpenini a music composer that she once met when she was younger Back then he was apparently very impressed with her piano playing and when this letter shows up asking her whether she's interested to be his pupil it's like oh god finally someone recognizes that she's good at something It turns out that the letter was written by Vincenzo's buddy Oliver Merrick who was hoping that Bridget would help them reverse their fortunes after Vincenzo slept with his patron's daughter and jeopardizes his position as the powerful Marchese di Gribaldi's favorite music composerBridget learns of the change of plans after she has let the whole of London's Ton believe that Vincenzo is coming over to find her which as you can imagine a situation best described as beyond awkward When circumstances allow her to go to Venice and meet Vincenzo in person she may however finally find the adventure of a lifetime Oliver is one of the happiest people in the world to see her but alas she seems so taken by his buddy that poor Oliver finds himself standing awkwardly in that sad place called friend zoneOne thing that flows very clear from every word is the beauty and even sensuality of the music that we know today as classical music Beethoven's Piano Sonata No 23 in F Minor the piece that Bridget would play in a competition that would hopefully restore Vincenzo's position as the favored one in town becomes a powerful and evocative representation of Bridget's sensual awakening as well as coming of age The best scenes in this story are those where Bridget just closes her eyes and live the music This is one of the reasons why Bridget is a fantastic heroine her passion for her music feels very real not some kind of hobby a romance heroine pretends to be interested in until she finds a boyfriendThe rest of the story is alas uite bland in many ways It shouldn't be bland because Bridget is a fascinating character and Oliver is in many ways her male counterpart He too can't fit in as he is the son of a typical English nobleman and an Italian diva He loves theater music and opera but he was made to feel awkward and out of place for this Their romance is sweet but that's the problem it's merely sweet and is therefore completely overshadowed by
