Publisher's Summary

Sally is an incredible singer but she'd rather join a nudist colony than sing in public. That is until she ventures to New York where a wild summer of love and loss changes her forever.

Sally returns home to London, but as she's about to embark on her new life, a beautiful man turns up on Sally's doorstep. Does he hold the truth to what happened in New York? And, with him back on the scene, will she still have the courage to step into the spotlight?

Favourite Chick-Lit

Would you listen to The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me again? Why?

This book is one of my favourite chick-lit books. Certainly, the end of the story is predictable as it usually is with books in this genre. Still there are lots of surprises and interesting characters on the way.

What did you like best about this story?

I really liked Jan Borsos, even if he is light years away from the typical Hungarian man. (Trust me, I have first hand experience with them.) But what I really liked about the book was how the love relationship developed between the two main characters. In addition, I looove operas, and while I was reading, I was constantly looking up the arias mentioned and listening to them. This book really made me fall in love with opera again. I wasn't completely happy with the ending though. I think the book should have ended ca. 100 pages earlier, after the heart-to-heart conversation in the wardrobe... I also had issues with the explanation as to why someone ignores someone else, even if they are in love with that person. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this book to fans of the opera and chick-lit.

If you could rename The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me, what would you call it?

No need to rename it, I find the title quite good.

Any additional comments?

I really liked Stevie Lacey's narration.

Bravo

What did you love best about The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me?

I loved how it was set over a year and skipped back and forth between London and New York.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the story, I wasn't sure about the Opera side of it when I read the synopsis but I loved it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Too long for 1 sitting but I did struggle to stop listening to it.

Any additional comments?

This is my second Lucy Robinson book, I just loved it. Her characters in her books are just so well written! Can't wait to read the next one

Amazingly brilliant book.

Such an enjoyable book. Characters we can all relate to. Loved all of it. Laughed, smiled, cried, wanted it to never end.

Lots of twists

Nice story line, easy to listen to, well read with lots of twists and turns. Something a little different subject wise, with mix of family and the arts. I will defenatlety read this authors books again.

Dear god!

Why didn’t anybody listen to this person reading this before it was published? Dreadful, inaccurate accents were like fingernails down a blackboard, I couldn’t get past the second chapter. Ruined! Which is a shame because Lucy Robinson‘s books are generally very entertaining and full of laughs. I wasn’t laughing this time. Returned the book.

A bit to obvious

Nice story but just a bit to obvious, even for a holiday read. It also felt like two different people wrote this book or the editor had a ghost role!

I wanted it to be good

I had such high hopes for this story, the premise sounded great and I’ve heard only good things about the author. 4 hours in and I’ve decided to draw a line under it. Unfortunately this story is very drawn out and lacks steady pacing. So often I found myself thinking “I get it, move on” as the writer tirelessly re-emphasised the same character traits over and over again. I’d give this one a miss but I am somewhat hopeful that if you do power through, it gets better towards the end.

Uninspiring and over narrated.

So much so I only managed to listen to a few chapters. Not my kind of book.

Stourbridge accent was dreadful!!!

I looked forward to listening to this story, however the supposed Stourbridge accent was appalling , it was more of someone coming from the Liverpool area, and I couldn't cope with it !!
