First off, let’s not pretend the “world renown violinist with rock star good looks” in this novel isn’t entirely based on classical and crossover extraordinaire, David Garrett. Not that I’m complaining, but anyone who knows even a little of the German-American violinist, would see a similarity between him and this fictional violinist, Daniel Kennedy. Almost every detail given - from his appearance to his background - mirrors Garrett’s to the point it seems utterly implausible to be just a coincidence.

Okay, so Kennedy has a French father and American mother, where Garrett has a German father and American mother; but both took their mother’s maiden name of Scottish heritage for their stage name; both studied at the Juilliard private conservatory in New York; both have identical tastes in jewellery, clothes, even the way they wear their hair; both despite having had model girlfriends have difficulty finding the time to have a serious relationship… basically, while reading this novel, it’s almost impossible not to picture David Garrett...

And as a fan of his, I purchased this book for that very reason, as it is almost a real person fan fiction! I do not mean that as a negative, however the writing style is not particularly sophisticated, is very expositional dialogue heavy and gives very little insight into the real world of a very successful professional musician at the height of their career and popularity.

Written in first person, the novel really belongs to our protagonist Elizabeth Tudor (who is living under the alias, Mary Stuart - see what the author did there?) and is a gently told story of a woman finding her own way in life away from the pressures and expectations of her famous family.

Independent Reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.

Mary has a secret, an alter-ego, Archangel. Archangel appears here and there in the London clubs and its at one of these events she crosses paths with Daniel, fellow Julliard student, viloin virtuoso. There follows a love affair tainted only by Mary's brothers finding her after a ten year absence, and Daniel discovering that Mary is Archangel.

I'm not sure how I feel about this book! I didn't hate it, not by a long shoot, I'm just not sure it worked for me, personally.

Two things stood out:

1: Its written ENTIRELY from Mary's POV, in the first person. I would much rather have dual POV in the first person, over the single option. I dont't much care for first person POV at the best of times, and HERE?? I needed to hear from Daniel, I needed to know what was going on in his mind at keys points along the way, when he first re-connects with Mary, when he goes to punch her twin brother, and when he found Mary's secret.

2: There is far too much dialogue, for my liking.

I have Archangel to read next, which is a continuation of Mary and Daniel's story. I actually started reading that BEFORE this one, and I was missing something. I was kindly given this copy to read before Archangel. MOST, but not all, of what I was missing has been filled in, I still have some questions through and hope they will be filled in in that book.

I do look forward to reading Archangel, if only to see Mary and Daniel get their happy ever after.

3 stars

The Tudor Dynasty series was one of my favorites from Jamie, and this spinoff series, beginning with Encore was an awesome story!!! I adore the relationship between Daniel and Mary, and can't wait to see what else they encounter down the road. This book was very well written and I enjoyed it from beginning to end!! Even though Encore can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend that the reader also reads the Tudor Dynasty series…they’ll love it!!! The musical themes throughout this story really added to the uniqueness of the story. Great job Miss Jamie…you never disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Story 30 Dec. 2014
By The Book Minion - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Reading Encore was like watching an exquisite dance. The book has a musical theme that is done beautifully. Mary Stuart and Daniel Kennedy knew each other years before when they attended the same performing arts school. Daniel is now a world renowned violinist extremely absorbed in his music. While Mary has given up music for a career as a photographer. Neither knows how to have a serious relationship but wants to learn. They seem to be perfectly for each other but Mary has secrets that could destroy their relationship.

I felt Jamie Salisbury did a wonderful job at developing the characters. She did such a great job with Daniel that I could hear him playing his violin in my head. It wasn't just with Daniel. I loved Mary's internal struggle with her secrets. I don't want to give anything away, so I won't go into what her secrets are about. I also loved Mary's fierce personality. Standing up for herself when she hears the office woman gossiping about her was great!

Daniel and Mary's sensual relationship is worth the read all by itself. When Daniel takes his rings off so he doesn't mar her skin I sighed out loud. My only problem was it was over before I was ready to let them go. I can't wait for the next book in this series!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read - Heart Rendering Story 19 Nov. 2014
By C.M Kenney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This heart rendering novel delves int0 the relationship between the main characters, Mary Stewart and Daniel Kennedy. The supporting cast help to build an amazing story that encompasses their past, present and future. Without exposing any spoilers, I'll say that if you love an amazing love story, music and a story of two characters with three dimensional personalities, you will love Encore. You will be saying "Encore" for the next book in the series written by Jamie Salisbury. I know I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved how the story takes place in London 9 Sept. 2016
By Mollykr5 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved how the story takes place in London. Her character had left her family to pursue her own name and find herself. She wanted to be her own person, not what her family name and success. Then she unexpectedly found love. Their story is a great one. There is love, mystery, family drama, and the coming together of her family.
