Heard It in a Love Song by Tracey Garvis Graves

Layla Hilding is thirty-five and recently divorced. Struggling to break free from the past—her glory days as the lead singer in a band and a ten-year marriage to a man who never put her first—Layla’s newly found independence feels a lot like loneliness.

Then there’s Josh, the single dad whose daughter attends the elementary school where Layla teaches music. Recently separated, he’s still processing the end of his twenty-year marriage to his high school sweetheart. He chats with Layla every morning at school and finds himself thinking about her more and more.

Equally cautious and confused about dating in a world that favors apps over meeting organically, Layla and Josh decide to be friends with the potential for something more. Sounds sensible and way too simple—but when two people are on the rebound, is it heartbreak or happiness that’s a love song away?

From the bestselling author of The Girl He Used to Know comes a love song of a story about starting over and second chances.

3.5 Stars

Heard It in a Love Song is a low-drama romance, that is sweet all around. It's all about finding trust and love again after failed marriages. 

Layla left her marriage after realizing that her ex is someone who mentally knocked her down and she knew she could move on her own. Layla deserved so much more. Josh is now a single dad after realizing his long-time marriage has changed over time. He married young and they just grew apart. 

I really enjoyed how this book is written - it takes you present and then to the past to get the backstory of each characters.
