Love in Three Quarter Time: A Viennese Valentine by Rachel McMillan

Love in Three Quarter Time title dark


A romantic waltz through a city filled with music, passion and coffee. 

Evelyn Watt fell in love with Austrian marketing director Rudy Moser the moment he stepped into their Boston firm. With his ice blue eyes and chocolate-melting accent, he is as refined as she imagines his home country to be. When Evelyn finds herself unexpectedly unemployed right before Christmas, she is left with an unknown future until Rudy steps in with a job appraising, assessing and cataloging heirlooms, lending her American vernacular to the translated descriptions to give each item international appeal. Evelyn will live in Vienna for the months leading up to a grand auction at a party held in conjunction with the Opera Ball—on Valentine’s Day.

Vienna is a magical blend of waltzing, antiques, and bottomless cups of Einspanner coffee at the Café Mozart. When a secret from Rudy’s family’s past blows in with the winter chill, Evelyn is forced to confront how well she knows the object of her affection. Her café tablemate, the gruff and enigmatic Klaus Bauner might be the only person who holds the key to Rudy’s past. But could that key also unlock her future? In the days leading up to the Opera Ball, Evelyn finds herself in the middle of the greatest romance of her life…as long as she doesn’t trip over her two left feet.

My take:~

Rachel McMillan has penned a delicious love story, not just between two searching hearts, but she delightfully acquaints the reader with her own romance with the enchanting cities of Vienna and Prague. Architecture, heirlooms, and history come alive with McMillan’s prose, as tender love blossoms in an unanticipated tableau that is unique and captivating. Evelyn’s vulnerabilities and dreams are tenderly felt, their authenticity providing moments both amusing and poignant. McMillan explores the premise that love isn’t always found by hastily unwrapping the prettiest gift, but can be discovered by unfolding an unassuming gift with gentle hands and an open heart. As for the man who captures Evelyn’s wistful and romantic heart, his atypical appeal is refreshing and compelling. Love in Three Quarter Time is a story to cherish, friends, and I can’t wait to return to Vienna!
