This book had its moments, but basically it's a real stinker with a soap opera ending. A large part of the plot revolves around a custody fight between the hero and his ex. He marries the heroine to bolster his case for gaining sole custody of the children, but the heroine turns out to be perfect mother material and falls in love with the children.

I really enjoyed this book and hated for it to end. It tells the story about Lilac "Lil" O'Malley Ryan, a widow who meets country music star, Jonathan Van Castle. It is not love at first sight but sparks do fly. What starts out as a marriage of convenience, quickly changes to something else. Also involved is a family, his children, an evil ex-wife, and life itself. Highly recommend.
I'm not a big romance reader, but the author is a friend of mine, so I wanted to see her writing style. It was a quick, easy read and very entertaining. If romance novels are your thing, read this one! You won't be disappointed.

An okay novel, with pretty much nothing to recommend it except that there's nothing explicitly wrong with it. Corgiat does an okay job with basic storytelling, but neither the characters nor the plot are particularly compelling.
Sing Me Home started out like gangbusters, then got bogged down in it's overlong length. The plot just moved too slowly, causing my mind to drift (and that's never good). It does, however, make a good beach read.
Hero is a Country Music star with kids, divorced from his wild wife. Heroine marries him in a marriage of convenience to help him gain custody of his kids. Good.
Two-haiku review:

He wants custody
She falls hard for his children
Marriage in name only

Started nice romance
Turned into melodrama
Still enjoyable

I enjoyed this book. I loved the plot twists and turns and the storyline. I will probably read the other 4 books in this series as well.

Being a huge Country Music fan, I expected a little more of this story. It wasn't all bad, but not really to my liking.
