David’s Song by A.R. Talley is a very engaging read. Life for Jeremy and Annie was no longer a joy: it was a battleground. He felt he was always treated as second best. She felt he no longer cared for or about her. No matter how hard they tried, all their conversations became battlegrounds: nothing physical, nevertheless, destructive. Wanting nothing more than peace between them, they decide Annie should take a break and go on a vacation with girlfriends. They believe absence makes the heart grow fonder; after all, that is what the old adage promises. However, with David, a dancing partner of her youth staying in the same locale, complications can and do arise. Annie becomes swept up in a euphoric cloud of her past and unrequited love. When this happens, to say her judgement and decisions become compromised is an understatement. Despite the good intentions of all concerned, not only Annie gets embroiled in past emotions: David and Jeremy are affected, too. Annie believes friend Emily is spying on her – for Jeremy. Dana – David’s wife, though absent, is still a thorn in Annie’s side.

Sounds very complicated but it is not. I loved this story. The characters are plausible and relatable. I loved how the story develops and the outcome. Needless to say, hearts do get broken. Actions do suffer consequences, but as a good story the ending will be left untold by me. I would not want to spoil it for anyone. Lovely, easy read, with nothing offensive to ruin the read. I would recommend the book readily.
