This is the second book in the Smoky Blues series and I loved it. You have mystery, romance and bluegrass music. It is set in Tennessee which is my home state and describes it beautifully. Cooper and Chessie make beautiful music together. He might be a bit older than her but because of her background she is very mature at a young age. The fact that she is running for her life adds a little spice to the story, and of course you have Sawyer in the mix who Cooper has no use for. The entire book is ...more

The second book in The Smokey Blues series a well written story with a very good storyline, I would say read these books in order, to better enjoy this series.

When the Opera Singer meets the Blue Grass Singer we have fireworks. I think this book was my favourite of the series so far. I had tears in my eyes at that ending. Very well written and extremely engaging.
