What’s a Jersey Girl to do when she moves to Catswallow, Alabama? Isabel Lang finds the answer in an unlikely bond with the musically gifted Aidan Roycroft. The two share everything from a first kiss to startling family secrets. But when Aidan is accused of a violent crime, the two flee to Las Vegas where Isabel’s future comes tumbling down.

Seven years later, the past is buried, including any relationship with Aidan. Isabel is busy running a radio station and closing in on commitment with Nate Potter, a guy who defines ideal. Life seems cozy until new station management demands a sudden-death ratings grabber, putting everyone’s future on the line. What should be a simple solution leads to a stunning revelation as Isabel is forced to call on the past and the only rock star she knows.


Review:  What a simply enjoyable read.  I loved every minute of the book.  Ms. Spinella has a way of drawing the reader in with her strong well written characters that make you feel as if you actually know them.

Love after all is all about ‘Perfect Timing’.

Aiden and Isabel were childhood friends who shared allot for such young people.  A first kiss, family issues, struggles and secrets.  But things happen and they lost touch.  Things happen and they are drawn apart.  Years later Isabel must go to Aiden for help.  She has settled into a New England town where she works for the local radio station.  She is in a relationship with Nate (a doctor) who is as far from bad boy rock star Aiden as she could get.  As she reunites with Aiden you find you want them to find that young love they had.

I found myself rooting for that love…that true love…the kind of love that follows you through time…  The way Ms. Spinella takes us from the past into the present is very effortless and makes it nice to follow Aiden and Isabel back and forth within the story.  Ms. Spinella brought all that love from the past, the hopes, the dreams, and emotion forward, showing us that if we truly believe love does and can conquer all.

A story and characters so well written you find it hard to believe that they are just a story…a story that transcends the test of time.

Perfect Timing is a book that will have you believing in the idea of romance and a forever kind of love all over again.  This is a nice winter read that will warm your heart.
