**PASSION, LUST, JEALOUSY and JAZZ ** Ellie Greenberg has had it with men. In her mid-fifties, she now has a respectable career and a nice, quiet life alone with her whippet for companionship. It is all quite enough for her. Getting her hot chai one day at her favorite coffee shop, she runs into the stunning-but-doesn’t-know-it Vincent Keyes, who turns out to be the famous trumpet player who will be the newest soloist to join her community jazz band. She is speared in the heart by Cupid’s arrow. One problem: he’s married…and to a much younger woman. Is the passion worth pursuing?

“Enjoyed the heck out of it!”

Monique Parent, actress, Magic Funhouse

“I cannot put Glissando down! In this lovely book about love, lust, andj azz, Deb Burke has created a world and characters that are engaging,witty, and relatable. I love Ellie; she proves that a middle-aged woman can have a rich inner life as well as lust, which we usually only attribute to the young. Burke’s knowledge of jazz also shines through in this novel. Pick this one up and don’t put it down until you’re through. You won’t be sorry!”            Brooke Fredericksen, editor “Whomever Ellie chooses,we’re all rooting for her!”             Bob Andelman, co-author, The Consulate “Thoroughly entertaining and engrossing. Wonderful characters, especially the witty, sharp-tongued narrator.”            Dr. Cheryl Feldmann, psychologist “Debbie Burke knows how to balance the humorous with the serious sides of relationships. Once you start, it will be difficult to put this book down.”            Aziza Miller, singer/songwriter “I was more than a touch envious of Ellie, a funny, feisty woman with an undeniable passion for life who knows who she is and is not afraid to take risks for what she wants, whether it is a change of career in an exciting new city or steamy encounters with a man who might (or might not) ultimately be meant for her.”            Cynthia Pierce, owner, Café Yuzu/Yuzu Patisserie  “This book is sexy and true-to-life for musicians everywhere! The more you read, the more anxious you become to get to the next chapter. A must-have for your book collection!”            Kea Michaels, soul/jazz recording artist “Story pulls you in. Feels real. Nice work.”
