Inspired by Jane Austen' s Persuasion, Where the Rhythm Takes You is a romantic, mesmerizing novel of first love and second chances. Seventeen-year-old Reyna has spent most of her life at the Plumeria, her family' s gorgeous seaside resort in Tobago. But what once seemed like paradise is starting to feel more like purgatory. It' s been two years since Reyna' s mother passed away, two years since Aiden-her childhood best friend, first kiss, first love, first everything-left the island to pursue his music dreams. Reyna' s friends are all planning their futures and heading abroad. Even Daddy seems to want to move on, leaving her to try to keep the Plumeria running. And that' s when Aiden comes roaring back into her life-as a VIP guest at the resort. Aiden is now one-third of DJ Bacchanal-the latest, hottest music group on the scene. While Reyna has stayed exactly where he left her, Aiden has returned to Tobago with his Grammy-nominated band and two gorgeous LA socialites. And he may (or may not be) dating one of them. . . "What a delightful debut! It' s like the perfect island vacation: breezy, warm, romantic, lots of soul searching, and full to the brim with love. " -Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author

" -- Publishers Weekly(starred review) "What a delightful debut! It' s like the perfect island vacation: breezy, warm, romantic, lots of soul searching, and full to the brim with love. " -- Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author "Where the Rhythm Takes You is a literary breath of fresh air! An Austen remix filled with a vibrant cast of characters against the lush backdrop of the small island of Tobago, readers will root for Reyna as she navigates grief, dreams big, and falls in love all to the tune of sweet soca rhythms. " -- Ibi Zoboi, New York Times Bestselling Author of Pride "Reyna' s voice rings clearly from the very first page, painting a beautiful and heart-wrenching picture full of grief, hope, and love. Readers will root Reyna on through it all, wishing for a future for her that' s just as beautiful as Tobago. Where the Rhythm Takes You sparkles brightly like the Caribbean Sea. Get ready to dive in!" -- Maika Moulite and Maritza Moulite, authors of One of the Good Ones "A love story with classic beats and a unique rhythm. " -- Kirkus Reviews
