Kassidy's Crescendo: Sisters in Spirit (Book Review)

Kassidy's Crescendo continues the story of the Sisters in Spirit, a series by Marianne Evans that previews the Pure Amore imprint from Pelican Book Group.  I received the ebook, at no cost to me, for review purposes.

From the publisher:
The stage calls, and the Sisters in Spirit are ready to take inspirational music and performance to a whole new level.

Concert promoter Drew Wintower is a diamond in the very rough. He's a genius at promotion and production, but he's nobody's believer. He's all about tangibles and feeding the public appetite.
Kassidy Cartwright belongs to a Christian performance group that has captured his attention–if not his personal convictions. Once his life and heart intersect with this stunning lady, sparks ignite.
On the surface, Kassidy is strong and faithful. Beneath it all a longing builds to find the kind of forever love that two of her friends have embraced. She never expects God to answer that prayer in the form of Drew Wintower–his world is completely secular.
When a concert tour brings them together, Kassidy discovers a solid core of goodness and promise in this compelling man. As transformation occurs, can she hold on through Drew's spiritual growth spurt? Will Drew be able to convince Kassidy that his newfound faith is authentic–not lip service or an attempt to win her heart?
As I wrote above, Kassidy's Crescendo continues the story of the Sisters in Spirit performing group, a story which began in Aileen's Song.   These books are about not only the activities of the performing group, but also the personal lives of the four young women who are its members.

This installment, as you have certainly surmised, focuses on the character of Kassidy.  As the Sisters in Spirit prepare to launch their first tour, they meet Drew Wintower, who will promote and produce the tour.  He and Kassidy are powerfully drawn to each other.  However, she is reluctant to test the waters because Drew is not a Christian, while Kassidy's faith is the most important aspect of her life.

The Sisters in Spirit novellas can be read as stand-alones; you'll be able to pick up enough history by starting at any point.  However, to get the full picture and to learn about each of the four young women, I recommend starting at the beginning of the series.  These books are most suitable for teen girls and young women.
