This is a short story. The author did a good job creating this part of Emma’s world for us to sink into. This is filled with drama, suspense and romance. This starts out with a bang. We meet Emma at her worst moment in life. Then we get to see her in her best. Reese is a godsend to his little neighbor. This story is one that will leave you holding your breath for the outcome.
Shattered Melody was a great 5 star read.
I was pulled in right from the beginning, I was done before I knew it. This is a great novella filled with romance, mystery, drama, lots of emotion that will squeeze your heart and so much more.
This is Emma and Reese’s story. Emma is recovering from a tragic loss 3 years ago. She is a pretty shy person who usually stays to herself. Emma meets Reese when he moves in next door. When Reese needs help Emma reluctantly agrees. They start to grow closer.
When strange things start to happen, Emma starts to question things about Reese. Is he behind the strange happenings?
There is so much more to this great quick read.Amy does a great job with her detail, I felt like I was right there with the characters. If you’re looking for a great emotional, quick read this is the one for you. Amy McKinley is quickly becoming a must read author for me. I look forward to reading more from her.
Shattered Melody by Amy McKinley was a sweet romance, that for a short read had mystery, drama, heat and, pure raw emotions that you can’t help but connect to.
This little wonder starts out with a good punch to the feels. I wasn’t expecting it to open like that, but man, way to get a girl feeling emotional in the first chapter. I love how Emma wasn’t the hard headed, self-destructive type, and I truly enjoyed her character. She expressed herself through music, and even though I couldn’t hear it, the way that the author describes it, made me feel the notes and melody that Emma was trying to get across. That my friends is some special kind of talent.
As for the overall plot and storytelling, it was spot on, and I forgot I was reading a short novella, as with the smooth flow and concrete writing it felt like a full size book. Detailed, rich, and surprisingly developing characters, made for a wonderful read that I couldn’t put down. The little bit of misdirecting and mystery added a nice layer that rounded off this short read, and brought it in for a home run.
And that my friends is where I will end this, as I don’t want to spoil this wonder. So if you haven’t guessed this book gets my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval.

Shattered Melody by Amy McKinley is a book that will captivate you entirely within the first few pages and won’t let go until the end.
Amy McKinley has quickly become one of my must read authors and this book is the perfect example of why. Emma and Reese are such brilliant characters that are the perfect complement to each other. I went in to this book expecting it to go in one direction only to find the author had a whole different story planned out for these two, which was great.
The book was fast paced and kept me interested the whole way through. I would have loved for it to be longer because I enjoyed reading about these characters and their story so much. You should definitely do yourself a favour and pick this book up today!
Shattered Melody is a fantastic novella by Amy McKinley. Amy McKinley is an author I’ve come to love over the last 6 months having read all of the Gray Ghost novels so far.
This may be a short novella (only 68 pages) but by God, the author crams so much action into it. I’ve always been gripped to her book from the very first page and this was no different.
Songwriter Emma Dawson moved to a remote mountain location after the death of her fiancé in a car accident 3 years before. Believing that his death was no accident she lives as a recluse.
When drop dead gorgeous Reese Miller moves into a cottage not too far from hers, her world turns upside down. There is an instant attraction between the 2 but as strange things start happening (dropped phone calls etc) she begins to wonder if Reese is her knight in shining armour or if he’s the one she should be most afraid of.
I loved this story, in particular the interaction between Emma and Reese. Amy McKinley sure knows how to write fantastic characters and a story that keeps you gripped until the very last page.
I loved this book! This is a short story that I wanted more of. Emma and Reece bring the story to life and seem real. They took me on an emotional roller coaster ride that just kept on going. Emma is a song writer that had a tragic accident. Fast forward, she keeps to herself until one day her new neighbor shows up on her doorstep. Now she is wondering if she can allow herself a second chance at love? Will Reece change her mind? You won’t regret picking up this book, I didn’t. A must read!

5 +++++ Stars
One of my favorite authors ever and as soon as I opened this I knew it was another that would be added to my favorite read again file.
Holy WOW did this start out with a bang, it’s not very often my heart starts racing a million miles a minute in just the first few pages and then end up shattered like I knew these people my whole life.
I don’t know why I felt so connected to Emma but something made me totally understand and feel for her immediately. I was afraid at one point that she was going to be the typical hard nut to crack recluse and was so very relieved that that was not the case. I absolutely loved Reese and although I had my doubts as well as Emma did as soon as I found out who a lot of his friends were I knew I had to be safe in trusting him.
This was a fast moving book with just enough of a twist to fit perfectly, and it had to be since it was so short and if I had any complaints it would only be that I would have loved so much more of this story, these people, the mountain. So I’m hoping that maybe there will be more to come somewhere down the line.
Read this, I’m not even kidding…It is awesome!!
