It was just one of those nights. One of those crazy, impossible nights that change your life. Forever.

When guitarist Michael Sullivan gets kicked out of his band (and his apartment), landing a record deal seems an impossible dream. And nothing about Michael’s prospects points toward a better future. Until the invitation for a swanky New Year’s Eve party shows up in the mailbox. It’s addressed to his uncle, with whom he shares both name and living space, but his uncle is going out of town . . .

On the effervescent night of December 31, 1989–as the Berlin Wall is coming down, the Soviet Union is falling apart, and anything seems possible–Michael will cross paths with the accomplished and enigmatic young heir to a fading musical dynasty, forever altering both of their futures.

My thoughts:

I have really enjoyed all of Erin’s other books so I was very excited to read this. I will say it took me a while to really get into it and feel invested and like I cared about these characters but at some point I realized I did care and wanted to see how things would shake out.

I didn’t like this book as much as her other ones but I did appreciate the stronger faith element than I often see in her other books.

As a music person I did enjoy that aspect as well. Overall it was an interesting read with a great characters and a good message.
