RESTLESS AS RAIN
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Wiesner's novel boasts a cast of several likable characters, especially the troubled hero. The book valiantly tries to address deep, real-life issues—perhaps too many at once. The primary conflict that separates the hero and heroine for much of the book feels unconvincing. But there are a few beautiful metaphors relating love to music that bring delightful touches of originality to the story.
When Vikki "Rain" Meyers escapes her suffocating fiancé and flies out to visit her sister in L.A., she's met at the airport by wild-haired songwriter Justin Pascal.
Rain and Justin share a passion for creating music, second only to the passion building between them.
But Rain's fiancé back home refuses to acknowledge the end of their relationship and a tough confrontation awaits her.
