Nikki has written a simply delightful romance in The Melody in My Head. I love that there is also a element of suspense in the story as we are constantly wondering exactly what Melody is running from and how that will resolve itself. Jameson is the perfect gentleman and treats Melody like a princess. This is book 2 in a series but I read it without having read book 1 and it was easy for me to follow as Nikki filled in those gaps for the reader with ease. I hated putting the book down to go and t ...more

This is the second book in the Love and Music in Texas series. This is a great series. As in the first book there are secrets, betrayal, suspense and romance. You really should read the first book in the series to get the full impact. I loved that I was able to catch up with Lucas and Avery. They still have someone who is out to get them. Jameson is working hard to keep Avery in his life as his best friend. It is wonderful to see how much Lucas and Jameson become such good friends. I felt so bad ...more

This is the 2nd book in the series. This is Melody and Jamesons story. I absolutely loved this book. It has some romance, and some suspense. It is also very heartbreaking. I got a little emotional reading this. Jameson is trying to deal with the death of his father while Melody is running from somethings that happened to her. I highly recommend this book. Great job Nikki!!

I was given a copy in exchange for a honest and unbiased review.

The Melody in my Head is book two in the Love and Music in Texas series by Nikki Lynn Barrett.. following in pattern with the first one it is about the band Baby Stetson though this time it focuses on Jameson as the main character.
Running from something scary in her past though we don't know what we find Melody Roland on a bus on her way to Georgia when another of the people on the bus goes into labor while they are stopped in Har

The Melody in My Head is the second installment in Nikki Lynn Barrett's Love and Music in Texas series. And like the first, I was sad to see it come to an end. As a matter of fact, I have a huge fictional boyfriend crush on Jameson. He'd made his first appearance in Baby Stetson, book one of the series. But Nikki brings him to life in this book. You get more insight into his struggle, his pain, his regrets, and most importantly his heart.

In true Nikki Barrett fashion, The Melody in My Head is mo

I really enjoyed this story about Jamison and Melody. We have Jamison trying to get over Avery aka Baby Stetson, he screwed up the relationship and she found someone else. He has to take care of his mother who has become a alcoholic after his dad died and his sister took off long ago and left him to deal with everything. He has so much guilt and is trying to overcome that. We have Melody aka Mary who is on the run and has come to this small town in Texas. She falls for Jamison and he with her, b ...more

The second book in the Love and Music in Texas series, was just as good as the first one. Once again Nikki Lynn Barrett, held my interest and made me feel like I was a part of this small Texas town. I also loved the fact that we got another look at Avery and Lucas from the first book, Baby Stetson. Melody, gets off the bus in Harmony's Echo, Texas, to help a woman that she just met on a long bus ride. She does not realize that she will get left in this small town and is surprised to see how much ...more

I don't know what happened or didn't happen here. I read this book when it came out and for some reason I can't believe that I didn't post my review.

The first book in this series was wonderful and this one was even better. I can imagine a woman fleeing from her past and the people that she is trying to forget. Who knew this book would be so exciting and would keep me up until I had read it all? Well of course the author did. I wish she wouldn't write books that get my attention so much.

Trust is something that Melody has not been able to do for a long time. I loved that Jameson completes her in every way. The part I loved in the whole book was when they sing together. They complete one another from their love to their yearning for normalcy. Nikki Lynn Barrett did a beautiful job on this book. The thing I love the most about Nikki Lynn Barrett’s book is even though it is a sequel she still

What a heartfelt and gripping story. Melody/Mary witnesses something very sinister at home in CO and high-tails it out of town on a bus. En route to her destination, the bus breaks down in Harmony's Echo, TX, and her seat mate goes into premature labor. While she's trying to help her, she meets Jameson, the lead guitarist for Baby Stetson, the country band from book one.

The Melody in my Head This is Jameson and Melody's story.
An excellent and spellbinding story with a wonderful plot in-depth characters with Jameson and Melody.
Had me on the edge of my chair throughout the whole book, it has a lot going on with the secret that has made Mary/ aka Melody come to Harmoneys Echo after she witnesses a murder and finds Jameson.
You also have Avery and Lucas and Belinda included in this book too.

What a fun story as a follow up to book one. I loved that you get to catch up with Avery and Lucas and what they have been up too. I like Melody she was a fighter and super independent but the relationship she has with her dad and brother speaks volume, I love how the author makes her feel come off as a "queen" but not someone who is stuck up. I liked Jameson he had a lot of demons he needed to fight in order to face his life and one of those was figuring out how to help his mom. The emotions in ...more

Facing the past to move forward
The action pulled me into the story from the first chapter and kept it moving throughout. Frequently when I read stories where one or both main characters have a secret, it feels like the story is contrived to keep too much from being revealed too soon, but Nikki Lynn Barrett did a great job of keeping the tension, revealing bits and pieces as appropriate and kept the pace through the whole story. This was the first book I read of this series but I will be reading

Melody is on the run from her past, Jameson has to deal with his alcoholic grieving mother, and Lucas and Avery are getting death threats. This story had plenty of suspense and mystery. I loved that Melody and Jameson wrote songs together. Jameson had a temper and got angry at times, which I didn't like. Melody closed herself off and had one foot out the door afraid of what might happen to him if her ex found her, but he could have been more understanding about it. I liked her brother Chris, who ...more

The Melody In My Head is the second book in the Love and Music in Texas series and is a great romantic suspense story.

This second installment to the series has terrific characters, secrets, danger, suspense, intrigue, and a chance for love. I really enjoyed seeing the characters from Baby Stetson and how they continue to mean a lot to Jameson. Can Melody trust again or should she keep running?

I cannot wait for the next book in this series.

Another new comer to the small Texas town, but not the only one to bring baggage. A little twist at the end of this romance is quite unexpected. Nice little jolt. Jameson is a nice change from the Alpha hero. Melody is just right in the second book in the series. And the stage is set for more from Blaine. Good followup, looking to book 3.
