With a deft hand, Rochelle Weinstein has crafted a fascinating, multi-layered tale expertly weaving between then and now. She introduces not one, but several intriguing elements from the past and how they shaped the present, and I desperately needed to know how everything would end. And all I can say is, what a wild and wonderful ride.

Weinstein had me at music. Throw in a retro timeline that brings back all the 90s feels and I’m a forever fan. What You Do To Me has everything I love in a story: romance, mystery, and suspense, the trifecta of an unputdownable read. Weinstein savvily crafts not one, but two love stories, each with a heart tugging emotional end, wraps them both in some of my favorite tunes from the best decades (IMHO), plus some new ones, and adds in a mystery detailed so visually I could easily picture this on screen. Fans of Daisy Jones & the Six and novels with music themes and persistent protagonists both flawed and edgy will obviously love this book, but I think Weinstein’s novel packs an extra punch for us romantics who grew up falling for a rock star or two, even if he was only a poster on the wall above our bed.

Bestselling author Rochelle B. Weinstein had me at ‘mix tape.’ Her nostalgic new page-turner, What You Do To Me hits all the high notes: a strong, determined female protagonist, a dreamy love interest (ahh, the lead singer in a band), forbidden love, family drama, journalistic pursuits, suspense, and second chances. Rolling Stone reporter Cecilia James has committed the cardinal sin: She has become emotionally involved in her story, as she deep dives into finding the truth behind a hit love song while trying to detangle her own messy love life and family secrets. I sang, I wept, I laughed, and I applauded, holding my lighter high for an encore performance. Weinstein’s latest must-read gem doesn’t miss a beat.
