PRIVATE MELODY (3) by AlTonya Washington: Therin Rucker is an ex-ambassador to Canada who has now dedicated his life to raising funds for education. He is smitten when he meets pianist Kianti Lawrence, a private woman who suffers from a health condition that forces her to seclude herself from romance. The two are immediately drawn to one another but Rucker’s enemies are not just after him; they are out to get those he loves. Washington spends more time describing the pending drama than she does accurately painting the picture when the drama actually happens.
