Heart of the Violist by Maddie Evans
Ashlyn may finally have her life under control. Abandoned by her own mother when she was a kid, Ashlyn found a home when the Castletons embraced her as their fourth child. Nowadays Ashlyn plays viola in the Castleton String Quartet. She's got a family and rent money. What more could she ask for? After months of searching for his biological family, Michael has just seen his DNA results. Astonishingly, he has a full sister--violinist Lindsey Castleton. One frenzied drive later, Michael finds Lindsey performing with her string quartet, alongside the most beautiful woman he's ever seen. The Castleton siblings insist the report is wrong because their parents weren't even in the same country when Michael was born. Is this a scam? The deeper they dig into his story, though, the more Ashlyn wants him to be a Castleton. Michael seems stable, strong, and reliable. Not to mention his gorgeous eyes and dusky voice. As each answer reveals another question, Michael and Ashlyn are drawn together by the brokenness of their past. To achieve the potential of their future, Ashlyn will have to trust Michael enough to open her heart, but with trust comes the risk of betrayal. Heart of the Violist is the first novel of the Castleton String Quartet romances, a story about the families we're born into and the families love can make for us.
