I really liked this book it was a quick read and I was very interested in these characters and what was going to happen to them. The book kind of ended abruptly but I think that is just because Part 3 is not available yet and I am now very anxious to read it to find out what happens! I actually let out a yell when it ended and I had nothing more to read or find out!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to participate in the book tour. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
Nashville – Part One – Ready to Reach
Nineteen-year old CeCe Mackenzie leaves Virginia for Nashville with not much more to her name than a guitar, a Walker Hound named Hank Junior and an old car she’d inherited from her grandma called Gertrude.
But Gertrude ends up on the side of I-40 in flames, and Nashville has never seemed farther away.
Help arrives in the form of two Georgia football players headed for the Nashville dream as well. When Holden Ashford and Thomas Franklin stop to offer CeCe and Hank Junior a ride, fate may just give a nod to serendipity and meant to be.
Nashville – Part Two – Hammer and a Song
CeCe McKenzie grew up dreaming of a life doing what she loves – singing in Nashville. When she and her Hound dog Hank Junior set out to make her dream come true, life takes some twists she hadn’t counted on. Like falling for Holden Ashford, a songwriter with a gift. And also a girlfriend. Can a country music star’s hunky son help her forget about Holden? Or is that even possible when her heart insists on writing the song?
