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?
What I thought
Right off I fell in love with the characters in both books. CeCe is a great young gal trying to make her way in the world. She, along with Thomas and Holden, makes the story unfold with a little bit of southern charm. The author uses the country music industry to play this story like a song itself. I also love the caring attitude towards some of the animal characters in the book. As a matter of fact, the author states in an interview, “I’ve been involved in rescue for the past ten years or so. The loves in my life are dogs who had things about them that made them less adoptable, medical issues or a past that made them fearful of people. I have found that these are the ones I most enjoy helping”. This is a plus for me as well. The Nashville books unfold rather quickly (each book is just over 100 pages each), but the story will leave you wanting this story to continue.
