Publisher's Summary

On the verge of turning 40, former Marine Cameron "Cam" Warren didn’t expect to be walking onto a community college campus to spend a year playing music. Instead of enjoying her career, Cam is still mourning the tragic death of her partner and fellow Marine Sharon. Five years have now passed but she is no further forward in dealing with her grief. Cam knows she needs to change so she can heal. Will taking a sabbatical to play the drums allow her to live fully again, connecting her to emotions in ways her autism has always prevented?

Jazz pianist and teacher Laura Clark has had enough of city life on the east coast and yearns for the quiet beauty of Colorado. When a faculty position opens at a small community college in Ft. Collins, she jumps at the chance to start a new life. However, what she couldn’t predict was that one of her star students was about to walk back into her life, 20 years later. 

When Cam is introduced to the new jazz ensemble director she is shocked to see her high school music teacher, a thousand miles away from the small town where Ms. Clark first introduced her to jazz. But Cam is no longer a kid, and as their chemistry grows stronger, Cam has to choose which path her life will take - will she choose love or will she choose fear? 

Dal Segno is a lesbian romance that shows the power of revisiting the past to create a completely different result. Everything changes the second time around....

Unfortunate

I had high hopes for this book but it's just boring. I found my self browsing social media while half listening. I enjoy this narrator's work but this book almost came across as juvenile, like the Young Adult genre instead of the middle aged characters that were written about. I definitely think that has more to do with the writing itself, but the narrator's earnestness contributes to that feel. I enjoy regular romances without murder or crime, so it's not a trope or genre issue. This book just didn't hold my interest. In fact, I didn't finish it.

Such a wonderful mix!

Age gap, second love, slow burn, jazz. In addition to all those fun twists this was just a super sweet love story. My first experience with Jax Meyer’s work and very much looking forward to more. Stephanie Murphy did a great job of capturing the feelings and emotions with her narration.

All-around great read

As an autistic person, I thought the author did a great job portraying Cam. She wasn't a savant, just a regular person who happened to be autistic. I also appreciated that Laura was bisexual, as that part of the LGBT spectrum seems to be overlooked in lesfic. The story was great, and I'm looking forward to checking out more from Jax Meyer. Also, the narrator was wonderful.

Dal Segno

I believe this was Jax debute novel. The story I found very heart warming but I battled with the narration. Something just did not sit right with this narration. I have always enjoyed audio books as much as reading however I was left wishing I had just read this one. I have read other later stories by Jax and really enjoyed them and would definitely recommend her work.

A great story....

Jax Meyer did an incredible job of creating a story of love, respect, fear, adventure and growth between two women. I was attracted to the age gap between the characters and how it was dealt with here.. I also appreciate the teacher pupil aspect of the story. I don't want to say much as this is truly worth the listen. The narration that Stephanie Murphy provided was exceptional and spot on.

Enjoyable Read

Great debut novel. A very emotional story with charming, believable characters. It flows well with so many emotions, the ghostly visits during Cams dreams were a nice addition to the story. I enjoyed that the characters were older and that the romance took time to build. The telling of what Cam had to go through because of her autism in dealing in social settings was a great addition to the story. Great building of the characters and story line. Was well worth listening to.

Sweet slow burn romance with wonderful narration

This is a very sweet, well written slow burn romance. I very much enjoyed it. Stephanie Murphy did a wonderful job narrating it. She was able to distinguish the characters by her voice. She even did a midwestern accent when it was appropriate. The author was able to explore one of the characters being autistic and did a great job with that. I haven't had much exposure but it helped me to understand one person's presentation of their thought processes and coping mechanisms. I also enjoyed the musical references. This is my first book by this author but certainly not my last. I've already purchased another of her books.

I received the book in exchange for an honest review.

Excellent Audio!

I loved Dal Segno. The audio is as good, if not better, than the book. I like the idea that Cam is taking a breath in her adult life. Taking time to check in with herself and making sure of her direction and purpose. Stephanie Murphy does an excellent job with the narration.

A lovely story

A few months before her 40th birthday, Cam is ready for the next part of her life. She takes a sabbatical to take music classes at the local college. One of her teachers happens to be her former high school teacher, Laura.

Two things make this slow burn romance different from most I’ve read so far. One is not so rare: Cam is a widow, still mourning the death of the woman who shared most of her adult life with her. The other difference is Cam’s autism. Sometimes in romances, I feel like shaking the MCs so they will see what’s happening, or communicate better etc. In this novel (Jax Meyer’s debut), it all makes sense.

While it’s definitely a romance, the main interest of the book resides in that it’s told from Cam’s POV, with all the ways her POV differs from most people’s. Jax Meyer did a great job on that. The narration was really good too, despite some of the silences being a tad too long for my taste. But I completely forgot about them after a while and simply enjoyed the story. My only complaint is that I wish I could have heard the music…

A sweet romance


Dal Segno is a sweet romance. If you are looking for a sweet, falling in love story, without trouble you should read Dal Segno.
Cam is trying to redefine her life after the death of her partner. She decides to take music classes at the local college to get back into drumming. She meets Laura, her formal high school teacher.
Laura and Cam immediately connect to one another and they develop a nice friendship. Real attraction soons follows after playing in a band together. This story is not only about love, but also about how love and music heals your soul.

Cam is nerdy, funny and romantic while Laura is kind and very patient. They make a good couple.

The narrator does a very nice job on narrating this sweet romance. Stephanie Murphy has a very sweet and calm voice, it really suits the story.
I would recommend this book to anybody who likes a sweet romantic story.
