A Melody for James & Issues with B&N

melodyforjamesfinal2.7Question: Is A Melody for James on Barnes and Noble as an ebook?

Answer: No.  It’s been stuck in their system since June 14th and their customer service is way too big for their britches – meaning no one to whom I have communicated via email, telephone, or customer service instant message has any clue about how to fix it or who can fix it.

I don’t know when it will be available.  I try to deal with their customer service every single day.  When I call, they transfer me to a dead end robot and I have to re-call and start all over.  When I email, no one replies.  When I talk to them via live chat, they say they’re emailing a different department and no one gets in contact with me.  I’m disgusted and out of patience.

As soon as it’s available, I will announce it and send an email to my newsletter subscribers.

If you’d like an epub version emailed to you, I am quite happy to do that.  Contact me by email (hallee@bridgemanfamily.com), you can pay me with Paypal, and I’ll get it to you, because I’m quite tired of Barnes & Noble at this moment in time.

The Reviews Are Coming In!

melodyforjamesfinal2.7As I type this, A Melody for James has 12 5-star reviews!  Here is just a sampling of what readers are saying:

“This is a wonderful romantic suspense novel, Hallee Bridgeman is an amazing Christian author and had outdone herself this time… This is a story that is sweet and romantic, and dark and suspenseful. It shows how lives and people have intertwined through the years. I loved it so much that I have already read it 3 times. I also purchased copies for my friends that is how good this book is. It is well written and pulls you in from the first sentence, you will not want to put it down once you start it. I have enjoyed all of Hallee’s books but I think this is her best by far.”

“I am not usually a suspense genre reader, but knowing it was coming from Hallee I gave it a try! I have loved all her books so far and this one did NOT disappoint! I could hardly put it down and wished sometimes I didn’t have adult responsibilities so I could just sit and read it all the way through! I am always disappointed when a good book ends as it is SO good that you want it to keep on going! Once again when I don’t think the story could have any more going on or any other twists she throws another one in and it keeps you wanting to come back for more!!”

“Wow! This is the first book I have read by Hallee Bridgeman and it is one of the best books that I have read all year. This story had me hooked from the first to the last page and the characters are still dancing around in my head. I did not James and Melody story to end and there aren’t enough words to express how awesome this book is, so I urge my fellow readers please get a copy of A Melody for James and you will not be disappointed.”

“I’ve enjoyed all of this author’s work and her latest is no exception. It has an engaging and suspenseful plot (I couldn’t put it down and ready into the early hours of the morning) and is has characters who act and react realistically while still being Christian, yet without their faith feeling forced or an intrusion to the plot (just like real people).  Take the time to pick up this book and read it and you won’t be disappointed!”

“I highly recommend this read for any and all lovers of reading. You will find yourself deeply moved and seeking more from this brilliant author. She delivers on every page a strong and emotionally packed read with a deep insight into the world of life and love vs faith. Once again this author has surpassed my every expectation and touched my heart, I am eagerly awaiting the next magical read!”

“This book is full of suspense, romance, and intrigue, all from a Christian standpoint. It’s so hard to find great books to read that aren’t full of garbage. Hallee Bridgeman does not disappoint. I had a hard time putting the book down. I can’t wait for the rest of the series to be released. Go check out Hallee’s author page, and get The Jewel Trilogy. You won’t be sorry! ”

“As usual Hallee delivers a well crafted story with faith, mystery and romance woven together. Buy it. You won’t be disappointed.”

“Do you love suspense stories and want to read a book with a love story and a wholesome message that keeps you interested? Have you ever had a chance meeting that you knew God orchestrated? Then, later looked back and realize that experience changed the way your life was going? I have had that experience and so do the characters in this book. Did God bring them together to heal or will the circumstances of life prevent that? Read this book to find out what will happen to Melody and James. A suspenseful book that will keep your turning the pages and in awe of how God works in peoples lives. ”

“Having read and loved Hallee Bridgeman’s Jewel Anthology, I was excited but slightly hesitant when I heard she was soon to publish a Christian Suspense novel. I was thrilled to discover that Hallee Bridgeman does not disappoint us with her latest book, A Melody for James.”

Wow! “A Melody for James” is amazing! Twists and turns (including one toward the end I NEVER saw coming!) kept me reading nonstop. Like all Mrs. Bridgeman’s books, “Melody” is written from a Christian point of view without being “preachy” or overbearing. I not only recommend this for anyone’s personal library, but as a gift to others you know who like suspense/romance.”

A Melody for James is available at the following retailers:

SNEAK PEAK:

“Tell me about the song you wrote this morning,” James said.

Melody sat back, full and content, and smiled. “I can play it for you if you’d like,” she said, gesturing to the baby grand piano on the platform by the huge window. “I loved what I was hearing as I wrote it down.”

“I’d love that.”

Melody tossed her napkin on top of her plate and stood. “Let me grab the notebook.” As she opened her bag, her phone rang. The number looked weird – an international number she didn’t recognize. She thought of a couple of friends on European tours, so she answered without caution.

“Hello?”

The voice on the other end was unrecognizable, heavily accented with maybe a Russian accent. “There is only one reason to send you messages.”

Not quite comprehending the call, she said, “Oh?”

“Yes. It is so that I can put you on edge. It makes the end so much sweeter to know that you’re afraid, rather than oblivious.”

Tingling fear swept her limbs, leaving her weak. “Who is this?” she whispered with an outward breath.

“You will never know. And that makes it funny.” After a long pause he said, “I knew his wife, you know.”

“I beg your pardon?” Uneasy, Melody shifted her eyes to James. He clearly saw something wrong because he immediately was by her side. Melody pulled the phone away from her ear as if it hurt to have it touch her skin. With a swipe of her thumb, she put the phone into speaker mode.

“Unlike you, she didn’t know she was going to die.”

No sound preempted the line going dead. One minute the call was connected, the next it wasn’t. With a cry, Melody dropped her phone.
