Aya has a family history that haunts her and makes her a target for FBI investigations, even though she’s done nothing wrong. Trip has a history that haunts him too, one where he’s accused of causing the death of his friend, a druggie who managed to get killed in a horrific car accident. Both have baggage to carry around. Both have different ways of dealing with it. Aya keeps on the run; Trip buries himself in a bottle. But they both have a shared passion for music. Aya, using a pseudonym, writes the songs that Trip performs with his band, though Trip doesn’t realize that she’s the source of his award-winning songs. They have a connection, which they cannot ignore; one that goes beyond the music that binds.
Lori Power’s romance novel, For A Song, is a compelling tale of conflict and passion, combined with a love of music that restores and rejuvenates the soul. There are two plots to this story: Aya’s and Trip’s. Both plots are developed alongside the other as the two characters come together and connect through their shared passions and needs. The setting is adequately described and the unique complications of the two characters’ backgrounds are developed with clarity and precision. Overall the plot develops reasonably well. Music is woven through the story with intricate details and song lyrics that suit the mood. Music is the thread that binds, the power that maintains the characters’ and the plot’s forward drive. This is a simple, comfortable romance story that will soothe the reader with its lyrical eloquence.
