Restless Heart by Wynonna Judd
Contemporary Romance - Jan 25th, 2011
3 1/2 stars

On a dare Destiny Hart enters to sing on the WKCX Kicks Country Kentucky Idol Search. But what she never realized is how much her life would completely change from then on. While on stage, Destiny discovers her true calling and promptly gives up college and moves to Nashville to pursue her dream.

Four years later, Destiny has hit rock bottom - she is still waiting on tables hoping for her big break. To make matters wor

It's everything you'd expected - and not written particularly well. Just because someone is a successful singer doesn't mean she'll be a successful novelist. I figured this one would either be surprising witty and insightful - or it'd be super predictable tosh. Unfortunately, we got the later instead of the former.

Wy, oh why, oh Wy!

Restless Heart A Novel by Wynonna JuddWill Destiny Hart’s ambition fulfill her dreams, or will she alienate everyone she cares about in the process? Experience is growth and sometimes distance truly does make a restless heart grow fonder.

I was really disappointed with this book. It's not that I expected amazing writing skills from Judd, but I expected more after the prologue and first chapter. The characters were set up so well and the descriptions were really great. There was so much personality and I really loved it. However, as the book went on, the characters lost some of their spunk and they became flat.

I think the book would have benefited greatly from more of a romance structure. It is so close to being a romance that I

A fiction book from the country star that is well written. The title page lists LuAnn McLane as a contributor. This is Destiny Hart's story. On a dare she sings in a local contest and wins, her friend had entered her and not told her. She pursues her dream of a singing career and moves to Nashville, against the advice of almost everyone around her. A chance meeting with a high school friend at the bar she works at coincides with a career break. Seth remains a hometown boy, and as Destiny's star ...more

This is written by country singer star Wynonna Jude. The story focuses on Destiny Hart with her point if view. Other characters have their point of view told also, like Seth (Destiny's boyfriend) and Destiny's parents. The relationship between the family members feels a little realistic and is heartwarming. Destiny's passion for music really stands out. It felt that Wynonna was Destiny at times. The relationship between Destiny and Seth felt very bland (though I did like Seth a lot). It didn't

My Thoughts...

While shopping at a bookstore that was going out of business about a year ago, I was surprised when I came across this book for $1.00, and since it was by Wynonna Judd, (I didn't even know she was an author) I decided to throw it in the basket with the other books I purchased that day.

As I was reading it I wondered if some of the things she wrote about mirrored her own life somewhat. It was a fast read, I read it this long, cold wintery day. I wouldn't say it was a 5 star reading

Surprisingly enough, this book was highly predictable and there for not incredibly enjoyable... This book is also written by LuAnn McLane, who has written a couple of my favourite contemporary southern romance authors so I was truly looking forward to reading a book that she has had some part in. At first the similarities are kind of hidden, but as the story goes on it is very clear that this book is the same as "A Little Less Talk A Lot More Action" by McLane. The differences are very few and f ...more

I really enjoyed reading "Restless Heart". I love country music and it was no suprise that Wynonna would write a book about a country singer.

On a dare Destiny Hart sings "America the Beautiful" on the WKCX Kicks Country Kentucky Idol Search. She gives up college to pursue her dreams as a country music singer. Her father is not to happy with her decision and it puts a strain on her parent's marriage.

4 years later she is living in Nashville, Tennessee working as a waitress at Back in the Saddle Ba

Overall, a sweet love story; however it is obvious that it is not written by a professional writer. Destiny Hart has been struggling to make it in Nashville and finally gets her big break as her high school crush reenters her life. She must try to find a way to balance her dreams and love. The characters and plots are likeable, but could've been more developed. Months would pass by between chapters and the reader got very little explanation of what the characters were doing during that time. It ...more
