When he prevents her being shoved onto the tracks one night and saves her life, she pays him back by getting him an audition with her uncle, a Broadway bigwig.

Rising Star

Country music tells stories from a real-world viewpoint where love and loss can go hand in hand. Being a fan of the genre, I hoped Rising Star would use its Music City setting to showcase a romance worthy of a Country ballad. Unfortunately the story is more like Pop music; enjoyable but with little ...

Famous

Romances featuring characters who are famous are my booknip, so I was admittedly always inclined to at least like Jenny Holiday’s Famous, the first book in her new series. There’s good news for me and for fellow fans of the set-up, because I loved this book. Ms. Holiday avoids the potential for ...

One weekend and four books later, I had a book hangover that made Monday difficult to embrace, but I don’t regret my o ...

A Note Yet Unsung

I’ve enjoyed several of this author’s books, so I took a break from housework to read a chapter of A Note Yet Unsung. Within the first pages, I decided the housework could wait.  One chapter turned into another. The housework never got done, but the compelling story, vibrant characters, and dee ...

Wild Horse Springs

There hasn’t been a single Jodi Thomas book that I’ve picked up and been disappointed with. Her quiet storytelling really speaks to me. While this book has some gripping action, overall, it’s a gentle tale of three intertwining strands. Dan Brigman is the sheriff of Crossroads, Texas, a man ...

Wild at Whiskey Creek

Wild at Whiskey Creek offers a twist on the friends-to-lovers theme, with the long-standing friendship between the hero and heroine having recently fallen apart. Unfortunately, however, I found the book difficult to get into, and put it down multiple times. Neither the hero nor heroine captured my i ...
