Publisher's Summary

From USA Today Bestselling Author Devney Perry comes a single dad, second chance rock star romance

From the moment Quinn Montgomery sat behind her first snare and cymbal set, she was destined for fame and glory. As Hush Note’s infamous female drummer, she sets the rhythm for the band’s chart-toppings hits. When people tap their feet to their music, it’s to her pulse.  

Quinn is content to live in a world away from her family and the cage of her youth. Her only regret is leaving Graham Hayes behind without a goodbye. No matter how many sold-out stadiums she plays, no matter how many crowds sing her songs, his voice haunts her when the music stops. 

When a family tragedy forces her to return home to Montana, she plans to leave the second she’s paid her respects. But seeing Graham again turns her life upside down. As a boy, he wasn’t able to make her stay. As a man, he might be her future. 

If they can mend their rifts and find solace in the refrains.

Rifts & Refrains

Quinn left behind her hometown, family, and her only regret, Graham, to become the drummer for the popular band Hush Note. When family tragedy hits, she is forced to return to Montana to pay her respects. Quinn returns home to a cold welcome from her family and Graham which causes her to see everything she has missed out on. Not wanting to miss out on anymore she is determined to mend all of the rifts and refrain from returning to the past. I smiled, laughed and even shed a tear during this amazingly emotional story from Devney Perry. I loved the meddling the families, including Quinn's dead grandma, did to push them back together. Colin was quite the little burst of energy that made you feel exhausted after his little bursts in and out of the story. I highly recommend this story to everyone especially if second chance romance is your kryptonite as it is slowly becoming mine. Rifts & Refrains (Hush Note #2) is a second chance rockstar romance from Devney Perry that can be read as a standalone or as part of the series. Audio: Another great read by Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell. I especially have come to love Joe's impressions of kids as he gets so energetic.

Quinn and Graham ❤️

I love this story. Quinn is a bad ass drummer in the band Hush Notes, and she is too busy for her family. She left Graham nine years ago in her hometown, who was the love of her life to pursue her dreams to be a rockstar drummer. She kept in touch with her grandmother, Nan. When her Nan passes away she returns to her hometown in Montana where she is reunited with her family and has to face her troublesome past. While Quinn is there she reignites an old flame with her love and heals old wounds. Joe Arden in Maxine Mitchell narrate this novel and are fantastic. This book gave me all the feels and I just loved It. Devney Perry never disappoints.

Loving this series

My only complaint about this book was the name Graham in a book with a lot of talk about Quinn’s grandmother. At least in audiobook format it threw me a few times because a lot of people call their Grandmother Gram for short. It seems silly, but any other name would have been less confusing.

Great Chemistry

I love this Hush Notes series and book 2 in the series was wonderful. We got to meet Quinn in book one and I didn’t really like her character in that book, so I didn’t know what to expect from her in this one. There was a good bit of angst during this book for Quinn. She left for college nine years ago and never looked back, but now she is returning for her grandmother’s funeral. We learn a lot about Quinn in this book. We find out what caused the rift between her and her family and that also explains what happened between her and Graham nine years ago. Quinn and Graham have a lot of issues between that need facing, so will they work through things to find their 2nd chance? Quinn’s family now is her band members, so Graham is going to need to learn how to handle that. They have been there for her when her real family and Graham were not. Quinn and Graham have that undeniable chemistry that you can feel coming off the pages. Graham was a wonderful person and single dad, so he was careful to keep his son from getting attached, because he knew Quinn would leave. He didn’t want Colin, his son, to get his heart broke like his was nine years ago. Nan was the only person who truly believed in Quinn, stood by her, but now she’s gone. After the service, Quinn and her family have to face cleaning out Nan’s house and that is where Quinn truly finds herself again. In the love notes that were written by her grandfather to her grandmother. I so loved this book. Quinn redeemed herself to me and her and Graham were lucky to have each other and their second chance at happiness.

Rifts and Refrains

Devney Perry really knows how to tell a story! I envy Quinn and Graham’s love! Their childhood friendship evolved into an unshakable relationship with a solid foundation! To say that Quinn is resilient is an understatement, especially with the impoliteness and spiteful behavior of her family! I didn’t like how they felt the need to punish her with alienation for choosing to pursue her dreams! Graham provided the emotional encouragement and genuine acceptance needed to triumph over the obstacles in their path! He was angry initially but compassionate, encouraging and warm-hearted which facilitated the mending of their discordances! Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden are phenomenal narrators! Their performances breathed life into the story and made me feel all the angst, incivility, virtue, and affection in Quinn and Graham’s love story! I loved it and hope that the mending of their rifts help them to refrain from future foolishness❣️😍🥰🤩😍🥰
