Review: Can't Stop the Music


Can't Stop the Music
by C.D. Hersh

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:   Fantasy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Jammed highways, food shortages, and rainstorms can’t stop the music when hippies Rose and Dakota hear the melody of love at the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival. Or can it? When a jealous wannabe girlfriend and misunderstandings drive them apart, the couple loses track of one another in the massive crowd. Will they find each other again, or live lives of missed opportunities?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT:

When they reached the makeshift bridge over the road, someone yelled, “Hey beautiful! You with the red hair.”

She looked around to see if there was anyone else with red hair. Then she glanced up and spotted two guys, one blond and the other dark-haired, leaning over the side of the bridge.

“Yeah, you,” the blond called out as he caught her gaze.

Willow halted beside her. “He’s cute. How about him?”

Rose looked away, her gaze landing on the other guy.

He jabbed his companion in the ribs. “Quit trying to pick up every girl you see.” Then he leaned farther over the rail. “Don’t pay any attention to him. He’s high.”

“So she’s not beautiful?” Willow yelled to the hippie.

She poked her friend. “Stop it, Willow, you’re making a scene.” In spite of her protest, her gaze remained on the dark-haired guy.

He rested his elbows on the rail and stared back at her. The intensity of his expression shot heat into her belly.

“I didn’t say that, just that she shouldn’t pay attention to him.” He flapped a hand at his blond buddy, then tapped his own chest with his thumb several times as if to say, ‘Choose me!’

Does he want me to pay attention to him? Her heart thumped in rhythm to his jabbing thumb.

“Take that one,” Willow whispered. “He’s the real cutie.”


My Review:

Woodstock was one of the defining moments in the Hippie movement. People who went to Woodstock still remember it today, and many will tell you how wonderful it was.

Rose, one of the main characters isn't really a hippie at all. She's at Woodstock for the music and that's it. After seeing the Soul Mate tree she expects that the young man she just met might be the love of her life, but even though he too sees the Soul Mate tree they lose each other in the crowd and go home without either real names, phone numbers or addresses. So did the Soul Mate tree lie? Will Rose find her true love or not?

The book is well written and flows well. Rose and Dakota are sympathetic characters that made you cheer for them. There are a few twists and turns.  I'd give the book 4 stars.
