Format: Kindle Edition
Concerto by Sandra Miller is a fairly well written suspense novel. It follows Chrispen as she deals with what starts out as a fairly normal life. Chrispen is a violinist in the Newton Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra. She is there because Alexis Brooks plays there. Alexis is a world renown violin player who also happens to be the main suspect in the brutal murder of his wife. Chrispen doesn't believe the allegations and nurses a pretty heavy duty crush on him despite being told he is a danger to her.

When Chrispen receives a message her life begins to change radically. The message is a simple one: I see you.

I thought the book had a lot of good thing going for it, but there were a few drawbacks as well. Chrispen was a little bit of both. I actually liked her character for the most part, but she did a lot of stupid things with the evidence of her stalker. I'm not sure if Sandra intended for her to be a frustrating character (if she did she did an amazing job!) or if it just turned out that way, but it took me out of the story a bit. Also the villain wasn't terribly hard to figure out and is actually revealed about two thirds of the way through the book. The level of suspense is kept at a pretty good level through trying to figure out what is going to happen next, but knowing who the bad guy is takes a little away as well. I have to say that the while the stalker remained mysterious he was exceedingly creepy and that part was done extraordinarily well.

The characters Chrispen, Dwight, Kolbi, and Alexis were are done well inspiring the emotions that I felt Sandra wanted felt about them. There were even some little humorous parts injected with Alexis telling orchestra jokes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous, suspenseful read! 11 Jan. 2012
By Kiki Deister - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Concerto combined the best of mystery, romance, intrigue, and suspense and wove into a story that I just couldn't put down. From the first page, the story drew you in and just wouldn't let you go. Chrispen is a violinist with the local symphony and is looking at a chance to play with one of the greatest violinist. But instead of a rosy future, her life spins out of control as the mystery, fear, and suspense begin.

This was a fantastic book that kept me up far too late because I just HAD to finish it. Chrispen was a delightful lead in the book, a fully "real" character that has the reader rooting for her. Alexis was one of those characters that, for most of the story, you just couldn't decide if you were supposed to love him or hate him. That added so much richness to the suspense and mystery of the plot. All of the characters, rather main or supporting, were richly created and capable of drawing you into their stories. As fabulous as the plot was in and of itself, the characters were what drew me in and kept me there!

Next up in the series is The Lost Concerto, which I will most definitely be reading!
4.0 out of 5 stars I was pleasantly surprised that it was a great read! Concerto told the story of Alex Brooks 28 Mar. 2015

This was a free Kindle e-book from sometime ago. I was pleasantly surprised that it was a great read! Concerto told the story of Alex Brooks, troubled violinist who had been suspected of his wife's death some 5 years earlier.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Music, Madness and Mayhem." 8 Mar. 2011
By Bobbie Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Music had always been a big part of her life; when Crispen Marnett was offered a spot in the Newton Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, she jumped at it. With the chance to work with the world-famous violinist, Alexis Brooks she didn't give it a second thought. Having relocated only a few months earlier, Crispen was quite pleased with her new home and the new Orchestra; the only downside was the violent, reoccurring nightmare that robbed her of much-needed sleep that leaves Crispen struggling to stay alert during the day. The nightmare become more frequent the rest of her world begins to unravel as a crazed lunatic invades her privacy and threatens her safety; she has no one to turn to and no one she can trust.

Concerto is an interesting mixture of suspense, g-rated romance and mystery. The characters in this story have some depth, but lack essential depth and back-story; these elements in limited quantity prevent readers from having the necessary, empathetic response to the main and supporting character's plight. The storyline flows smoothly with increasing action and suspense as the story unfolds. Concerto would be a good first book in an ongoing series; it is an easy read that grabs the reader's attention and holds it to the very last page. Included at the back of the book is an interesting list of Frequently Asked Questions/F.A.Q. written by the author, that readers are sure to enjoy. Due to some graphic violence, this book is not recommended for readers under the age of 17.

4.0 out of 5 stars engaging 14 July 2011
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I liked it and did not want to stop still I finshed it. I was involved in the story so much that I was crying in part of it.
Chris is a violinist in the Newton Philharmonic Symphony. She joined 6 months ago to work with Alexis Brooks who was the best in world right now. five years ago he was tried for killing his wife and got off on a tech. Most people think he got away with murder including his own father.
Chris does not believe he did it. Even with police,dr.. everyone trying to warn her.
Dwight is very jealous of Alexis scince high school. He keeps asking Chris out but she keeps saying no. He is second chair and was more involved while Alexis was not around.
Someone is terroring Chris. first with wierd phone calls than lots of faxes than paper all over front yard. drugged her tea which if she was not on phone at time she passed out would of died by allergic reaction. Takes pictures of her everywhere, emails,damaging house. Police belive its Alexis.
So Chris believes she needs to solve Alexis wife murder to stop her attacker.
Chris makes some stupid mistakes, but keeps trying to fight back. It shows a lot of how symphony works.
I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review

5.0 out of 5 stars The Awful Realm of Fear 16 Nov. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Just before the holidays I find myself in the mood for suspense and mystery. Sandra Miller's Concerto fits my reading mood perfectly. When I look at the book, I think of my oldest son. He knows every Classical composer dead or alive especially the deceased ones. He does not miss a concert especially if it is Beethoven's works. So I look at the violin on the cover because it reminds me of my oldest man child.

In the novel Chrispen is a woman who plays the violin with a small group. She finds herself living out a dreaded nightmare. Someone is stalking her. Sandra Miller helped me experience what it is like for a woman to be stalked at work, in her home, in a parking lot. The props these madmen use her horrible and frightening.

Along with fear I thought of how horrible it is not to know who to trust. Chris knows two guys well. She sees both Alexis and Dwight as they practice at the music rehearsals. The conductor is Darren. At first both men claim to really care for her. Then, circumstances change. The question becomes which one of these two guys would ever want to scare her to death and hurt her physically. Trust is not a word often heard. The word love is thrown about like confetti. Why not the word trust? If I have to question whom I trust, will feelings of insecurity become too overwhelming? Trust is a character trait that Sandra Miller made me look at closely in her novel while all the time entertaining me with dramatic events in the lives of these musicians. I had one problem. The names Alexi and Alexis were so similar in spelling that I had to make a mnemonic to remember Alexis as the son and Alexi as the father. Otherwise, the novel is perfect. Sandra Miller made my nerves tingle. Boy, did she fulfill that desire. I look forward to her next mystery.
