Years in the cutthroat L.A. music industry have Kit Maggio yearning for love and acceptance in her hometown, Audubon Springs. Her position as a Theater Arts professor doesn't erase years of being shoved aside by her family. Her baby sister is getting married, and her high school sweetheart doesn't recognize her. Will she ever find what she needs?

Vince Iuliano never imagined he'd be a single dad. Vowing no woman will ever again break his daughter's heart, he focuses on providing a happy and stable home. But when the love of his life rents the house next door, can he take a chance on happiness?

Vince never forgot Kit. Setting out to earn her forgiveness, they fall back into the rhythm of love and heat, much like the songs they wrote as teens. When L.A. calls, will Kit go, or stay and write her greatest love song?

The Right Chord (Brothers of Audubon Springs, #3)My Review
The Right Chord by RoseAnn DeFranco 

Once again, RoseAnn DeFranco orchestrates a warm romantic tale that comes to life through her powerful talent with words. The Right Chord is a look at past mistakes, life path choices and second chances that almost breathes, it feels so realistic! Kit and Vince have a past, but time and miles put their lives on completely different paths, leaving painful memories, compounded by misunderstandings. Now a single father, Vince is no longer the brash young man he once was, but his self-confidence has been rocked when Kit returns to Audubon Springs, older, wiser, educated and holding their past up as a shield to protect her heart. Will these two be able to go beyond their past and trust their hearts long enough to find each other again? Will family and time become the wedge that keeps them apart?

From page one, Ms. DeFranco sets up her stage, kicks in a little humor, a little background and plunges forward with rapid-fire dialogue that mirrors “life” perfectly. Two talented and attractive people with a chemistry that can’t be denied are dancing around feelings with the grace of a bull in a china shop, providing great entertainment one minute and just squeezing the blood right out of your heart the next.

Ms. DeFranco is a master at adding just the right touch of conflict and roadblocks to add some fabulous side stories that never come close to muddying the waters of her romance, only making it more endearing and “human.” Her voice is strong, her tale flows perfectly with just enough chop and heat to make putting The Right Chord down nearly impossible. She makes romantic fiction come alive!
