                                If music be the food of love, play on...                                                            

​​Peter Llewelyn’s fans saw him as a world-famous concert pianist, director, and composer. No one saw the emptiness in his heart at the loss of his wife and son, Martin.  Retreating from the public eye, he pours everything into his music and continues to produce Tony award-winning musicals. 

He agrees to be a guest conductor at a concert that will benefit children.  The favor includes judging songs written by hopeful songwriters.  The winning song would be sung at the concert.  To his displeasure, the composer could claim the song was arranged by the great Peter Llewelyn, capitalizing on his reputation.    

He purposely stays in the high-end condo units at the Vanderbilt Beach Resort to ensure his privacy and anonymity.  When a food delivery service mixes up his order with his attractive neighbor’s, he wonders if it’s time to start living again.  


Eudora Hendricks never thought she’d become the owner of a very successful real estate brokerage and have a home in the Port Royal section of Naples, Florida  She’s learned life wasn’t all sunshine and roses.  Losing her infant son after two weeks of life left a deep hole in her heart.  

She loves music and singing with the Naples Philharmonic Chorus.  Through the encouragement of her friends, she submits a song she’s written in memory of her son Martin. 

When a major plumbing problem occurs in her home, she’s forced to move out.  The Vanderbilt is her favorite resort and the only accommodation they have left is a deluxe condo unit. When the food delivery service brings the wrong order, she confronts her neighbor and gets the shock of her life. 

When he introduces himself as Morgan, she goes along with him wanting to keep his anonymity but wonders how long she’ll be able to keep his secret.

A man from her past and misunderstandings will test their growing love for each other, but music will heal their broken hearts.
