    1. Singing in the local choir gives Lucy a welcome respite from the demands of her job as a newly qualified music teacher in an English secondary school. She daydreams about the lecherous conductor, Tristan, but barely acknowledges the handsome bass, Steve. In the run-up to the choir’s Christmas performance of ‘Belshazzar’s Feast’ will Lucy get the right man?Despite the fact that she’s incredibly naïve, you can’t help rooting for Lucy to find her happy ending. Lucy and her supporting c [...]


    2. I want to start by saying that I absolutely loved Jenny's short stories. They are all beautifully crafted. I also want to state that romantic fiction is not my favourite genre. But I love music and having myself been a member of a philharmonic choir was interested in the dynamics. The story is sweet even though the main character is rather naive. I would have liked to hear more about the music. I am not sorry that I have read the book and I am sure that Jenny's next full-length book will be even [...]


    3. Looking at the title, Make a Joyful Noise, by Ms. Jenny Worstall, you think immediately of happiness, joy, and good times, and thus, some people would judge the book as being too naive, nothing for adult reading. However, the exact opposite is true.The story as told by Worstall is remarkably realistic, and the book draws you into the world of a young woman whose desires are based on appearances, instead of the heart.Worstall sets a background in the story, by using an amateur choir as a minor ch [...]


    4. Definitely "An insightful story mastefully woven with threads of delight and wit!" Jenny Worstall chose such an enticing choral piece, “Belshazzar’s Feast,” to serve as the backdrop for this marvelous tale. MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE certainly does offer so many zesty tidbits for her readers to feast upon! The human foibles of her characters’ touched me deeply; I commiserated with them as each coped with hopeless yearnings, romantic misunderstandings, or older age issues and the consequences th [...]


    5. I bought this book for myself as a present from the Indielit catalogue and I'm so glad I did!The blurb describes the book as 'a delightful mix of romance, music and humour'd that's just what it is. It's a simple story, well told with recognisable, well rounded characters. I loved the description of Amy's first piano lesson, recognising the book I learned to play piano from when I was four years old.The book builds steadily and easily to an end of year dance and the choir performance, keeping the [...]


    6. This is an ideal holiday book and I read most of it sitting in the garden in the sunshine enjoying the sound of the bees in the honeysuckle and a glass or two of chilled white wine. It’s pleasant and easy to read and if it happens to be more typical British summer weather and you want something to take your mind off cold, wet and miserable then this book would do just fine. Definitely recommend it.


    7. This book should be on a "must read" list for anyone who loves a clean, uplifting read while being interesting and unstuffy. The characters are believable, some you want to shake to wake up and some you want to slap just because they deserve it! A wonderful read for any one of your family.


    8. Loved this very English tale around a choir, all mixed up with romance and teaching. Lots of lovely feel good moments. Well done Jenny!


    9. This was the last of my "seasonal" reads and I was disappointed. A reasonable story line, spoilt for me by silly characters and names (Miss Goodmitt??). This smacked of not being able to think of better ones and some weak characters. This could have been improved by developing roles more and taking out some of the daft statements which could have been made into a deeper plot with more feeling. Sorry, but not for me.
