Savor the Moment

by Dana Piccoli

Natalia Chambers is a successful singer/songwriter whose star is on the rise. But Nat has a problem. She can’t seem to write any new music and the pressure is on to write a follow-up to her last record. The fact that her last girlfriend betrayed her and left her with a wounded heart certainly isn’t helping any.

When Nat comes home from her latest tour, she’s ready for some serious R&R. The last thing she expects is a stunning pastry chef named Maddy LaDuke to send her tumbling (literally) head over heels. As Nat spends more time with Maddy she discovers a side benefit—it seems that their romance may hold the key to that serious writer’s block problem.

Just when Nat thinks she’s ready for something big with Maddy, an old flame arrives and tries to burn it all down. Will Nat and Maddy be able to put their hearts on the line and find trust in each other?

Dana Piccoli takes readers on journey of sweet romance and second chances with her debut novel, Savor the Moment.

"The drive from New York to Michigan is a long, tedious one, especially when you are the one behind the wheel. With my wife slumbering beside me, and the radio turned off, I was just left with my thoughts. What started as a daydream, soon began evolving into a full-blown story. Nat Chambers and Maddy LaDuke came alive on that road trip, as did their sweet romance. I can still feel the adrenaline that was flowing through me as I crafted these characters while driving through the hills of Pennsylvania.

This is a love story over five years in the making, and I'm grateful I was given the time and space to bring Nat, Maddy, Paul, Jackie and the rest of the Savor the Moment crew to life. This book features characters that reflect our community: lesbian, bi, queer, pan, non-binary, and trans folks from different backgrounds and experiences. This community gives me strength, and I'm eternally grateful to be a part of it. Now, I need to start planning another road trip."

The Nerdy Girl Express
Piccoli is a talented writer and what she creates within this work are scenes that you can vividly image in your mind. Each character has a distinct tone of voice as well as a strong character. Even minor characters feel strongly integrated into the lives of Maddy and Natalia. I also appreciated Piccoli’s willingness to include more emotional elements, that while not happy, many people within the LGBTQ+ community experience. Maddy’s coming out and everything she experienced is heartbreaking, but handled with such care that it had me welling up for a variety of reasons. She also takes the time to have a diverse character base, which is something that is often lacking in all forms of media. Whether you are a romance reader or not, I highly recommend Savor the Moment.
