Liza Palmer Party: The Music

Posted by on Jan 29, 2015 | 0 comments

The Liza Palmer Party in honor of the release of Girl Before a Mirror continues today with an important part of any celebration: the music! One of my favorite moments in this book is a scene where Anna talks about music. She prides herself on listening to a “certain kind” of music and sneaks “guilty pleasure” songs into her respectable playlists. I’ll let you read the book to find out how another character reacts to that little secret…
 
This book was just begging for its own soundtrack, so Hannah and I got to work. Girl Before a Mirror begins with the lyrics from the song below, so we absolutely had to highlight this beauty first. And below that you’ll find a playlist of twenty songs we felt represented emotions or scenes in this book. The playlist follows the order of the book, but we’re sharing the lyrics for the ten songs I picked my blog and Hannah has the lyrics for the last ten songs!

Review: Girl Before A Mirror by Liza Palmer

Girl Before A Mirror

By: Liza Palmer

Received from the publisher, thank you William Morrow!

An account executive in a Mad Men world, Anna Wyatt is at a crossroads. Recently divorced, she’s done a lot of emotional housecleaning, including a self-imposed dating sabbatical. But now that she’s turned forty, she’s struggling to figure out what her life needs. Brainstorming to win over an important new client, she discovers a self-help book—Be the Heroine, Find Your Hero—that offers her unexpected insights and leads her to a most unlikely place: a romance writers’ conference. If she can sign the Romance Cover Model of the Year Pageant winner for her campaign—and meet the author who has inspired her to take control of her life—she’ll win the account.

For Anna, taking control means taking chances, including getting to know Sasha, her pretty young colleague on the project, and indulging in a steamy elevator ride with Lincoln Mallory, a dashing financial consultant she meets in the hotel. When the conference ends, Anna and Lincoln must decide if their intense connection is strong enough to survive outside the romantic fantasy they’ve created. Yet Lincoln is only one of Anna’s dilemmas. Now that her campaign is off the ground, others in the office want to steal her success, and her alcoholic brother, Ferdie, is spiraling out of control.

To have the life she wants-to be happy without guilt, to be accepted for herself, to love and to be loved, to just be—she has to put herself first, accept her imperfections, embrace her passions, and finally be the heroine of her own story.
