Book Description

The Spanish House is a hotch potch of designs, Georgian, Gothic and Moorish, as if whoever started it had simply got bored. It has long been known to locals as an architectural folly, and is now nearly derelict to boot.
When its reclusive owner dies intestate the Spanish House is left to his city-dwelling niece. For Isabel, recently widowed, the house is a potential lifeline - the only hope she has of providing for her two children without having to sell her most treasured possession. But for neighbour Matt McCarthy, the house is revenge - on the family who ruined his father. For his wife it's the key to the perfect family life, while a struggling property developer sees in it a whole new future.
As desires clash and intertwine, lives and loves are demolished - and the Spanish House becomes a true folly indeed . . .

By Nicola F (Nic) TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I got given 'Night Music' for Christmas, and after surprisingly enjoying both 'Foreign Fruit' and 'The Peacock Emporium' knew I wouldn't be disappointed by this book.

'Night Music' centres around the dilapidated 'Spanish House' in a tiny village where everyone knows everyone elses business. Builder Matt and his wife Laura have been coveting the house for years and when the elderly owner dies, they think they're in for a shot of inheriting it. They're in for a rude awakening.

In the entwining narrative Isabel Delancey, a violinist with a city orchestra, has just lost her husband in a car crash and he's left her with mounting bills and no way of paying them. Imagine her surprise when she finds out a long lost relative has left her The Spanish House... Isabel immediately moves there with her two children for a new start, not realising the disasterous wreck she's inherited. And so begins a story of intrigue and deceit- as it becomes clear just what a hold the Spanish House has in the tiny village.

This was truly a great read. It not only has drama and tension but a nice dash of romance too. Like all of Moyes other books, you quickly become involved in the characters lives and situations. I read it whilst commuting to work over a couple of days, but alternatively I think it would make a good holiday book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rising to a crescendo... 20 Mar. 2013
By Katharine Kirby TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Jojo Moyes plays her readers like Isabel's violin. Plots dance from drama to crisis to pure everyday happiness. Mind you, `Night Music' may well significantly alter the way you look at that burly builder working in your kitchen, bathroom, quoting for some house repairs...

All the way through I was rooting for recently widowed Isabel to discover the backbone she clearly had, to wake up and smell the coffee. She has to unearth her hidden talents and meet new challenges head on when she finds herself in an unexpectedly precarious position financially. Luckily her fifteen-year old daughter Kitty opens the post and finds a letter that changes their future. An ancient relative has died intestate, leaving them a strange and quirky house in Norfolk, `The Spanish House'. This turn of fate might seem fortunate but events unfold rather differently. Others feel a right to ownership; the old chap who eeked out his last years there had leaned heavily on his neighbours and made promises. Oh dear!

Really dreadful, dramatic and frightening consequences arise from the move. Emotions run high. The locals need facing up to and getting to know. Friendly help comes from unexpected quarters. The children are going through trials of their own, the little family is definitely damaged. A strong silent type steps out of the shadows, a man with a past. He has the skills required to rebuild their lives, but will he be able to rise above his own problems to do so?

A jolly good read, at times rather heart pumping. This could be a very scary tv production. Although the final scene would take some setting up! All ends are tied up neatly which is always a joy.

3.0 out of 5 stars A reluctant critic 18 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I could not wait to start reading this book, i had already finished "Me before you" & "Last letter from your lover", so I knew JoJo Moyes was a brilliant story teller. Unfortunately i didn't think this book was up to the same high standards as the other two stories. The characters didn't grab my attention and the plot at times lacked a bit of oomph & direction. Night music was a light pleasant read but not a page turner. I remain a big fan of this author & look forward to reading more of her books in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Night Music: Moyes' best yet 31 July 2008
Format:Paperback
Night Music is utterly `unputdownable'. Jojo Moyes immediately intrigues and involves us in the lives of the characters of Night Music and the circumstances that we find them in. This is confidently sustained as the plot twists and turns towards and away from our expectations.

Despite its charming setting, there is a vulgarity to `Spanish House' with it's `Moorish, Georgian, Victorian gothic' façade: Architecture that reflects the rather vulgar attempts of generations of occupants to impose their aspirations and assume superior status within the village. This is what Matt needed the house for, but as the events of Night Music reminds us, we should assume nothing in life.

The new owners of `Spanish House' are different: different needs and ambitions, which reveal different vulnerabilities and strengths. The house is no longer needed as a symbol of status, affirming a sense of self or worth. Unexpected events demand a reassessment of what is important in (and for) life, and `Spanish House' becomes a valuable space for learning to live.

Night Music is not a story of `goodies and baddies'. Rather, Moyes gently `unpicks' a tapestry of lives that make up the picture of `Spanish House'. She lets us see the complexity of making choices and decisions, particularly when one seems, to all intents and purposes, to be a victim of circumstances. Moreover, we see how in these choices - whether they are made knowingly or unknowingly - there are consequences that often stretch beyond our imaginations. It is in how the characters depicted in Night Music deal with the consequences associated with their lives that makes them all so very human.

Throughout Night Music, Moyes sustains great pace because of a subtle complexity that feels very `real' - as the reader you have to keep turning the pages because whilst you think you might know what is going to happen next, you're never quite sure...
