My life is truly set to music. I have theme songs that I think symbolize what I am feeling for the short and long term. Right now, I have Centerfield by John Fogarty rolling around in my head. My new job is all about team and the team working together and the person that is my mentor is a great coach. We joke about it all the time but I really love having music and books blended.
BLAME IT ON BATH by Caroline Linden (click here to see the full review and cast your vote) definitely has a song running through my head from the minute I started reading. Endless Love by Lionel Ritchie (the new one with Shania Twain) was written for Katherine and Gerard and the life and love they are building together one kiss at a time.

BLAME IT ON BATH by Caroline Linden
Is there a defining reason why you choose me?
In an effort to save both of their reputations and provide some semblance for a descent life Katherine Howe and Captain Lord Gerard de Lacey, merge their lives in an agreed upon marriage. This should have been an uncomplicated relationship void of anything messy like love or commitment, yet Katherine is the romantic searching for more than a bed partner and Gerard is proving to be a wonderful surprise. Gerard on the other hand finds this the match necessary as his wealth had to be self-made, the curse of being the third son and all. With Katherine’s money, Gerard can also find the person behind the attempt to ruin his family name and take away everything they own.
Rumors abound in London of the Durham Dilemma, family ruination, and the possibility of losing everything his family built their lives upon. Gerard is going to get out of London and the hunt for the blackmailer takes the newlyweds away from the whirlwind and puts them in a place no one knows them, Bath. Gerard search starts here and hopefully he can unfold the story of not only who is behind all this trouble make it stop. What Gerard also discovers is he quite likes marriage and Kate is a complete delight. Watching Kate grow from a reserved into a curious and adventurous woman is bringing a sense of joy to Gerard he never expected. A marriage of convenience this may have started out as but exhilaration is what it has become.
Katherine worries she is not enough, perhaps too old, and just not pretty enough yet every night Gerard reminds her that none of this is true. She helps Gerard release his demons and helps in the search but getting Gerard to understand that it is okay to love her is a more daunting task. Both of them are searching for something and when they find it, will that bring them closer or drive them apart.
