Another Stellar Performance

Shira Anthony's Encore is the latest in her musically inspired gay romances, and a bravura performance it is too.  Her novels make me want to attend the symphony and wallow in the music for hours.

Encore, however, is more than a melodic gay romance, but Anthony's given it even more operatic overtones than the others in her Blue Note series.  The lives of John and Roger encompass the highs and lows found in many Italian operas.  I happily recommend it to anyone who says that romances are all the same.

On another note, I was surprised that another TRR reviewer was working on the same book for review.  I haven't had this happen before without an editor telling me it was occurring.  I'm not sure I like this idea, so we'll have to see if it happens again.  Just goes to show, however, that no matter how long I'm working in a business, there's always a question I don't ask before I accept a job.


  1. I'm so glad you enjoyed it, Pat! Thank you so much for the kind words.

    1. I can't wait to read your next one, Shira! Thank you for making my job so easy.
