When Lise Redding's estranged sister, country-pop star Callie Redfern, is killed during a publicity stunt, the small-town music teacher is dragged from her quiet life into the spotlight.
Lise hadn't spoken with Callie in ten years, ever since Callie's betrayal split them apart, so she's shocked to discover that she's inherited her sister's massive estate. Not only that, but Lise is now the guardian of her sixteen-year-old niece, Ariel, to whom she's practically a stranger.
Overwhelmed by grief and her new responsibilities, Lise thinks things couldn't get worse. But overnight she becomes the paparazzi's latest obsession. Suddenly she and her longtime friend Dale are plastered over the front pages of the tabloids. Desperate to escape both the media and her memories, Lise sets off with Ariel on a search for the girl's father. Yet instead of granting Lise a reprieve, the quest brings her face-to-face with long-buried secrets. Only by learning to forgive will she be able to find her way back home.

I don't write a lot of reviews but they make it so easy now and I really liked this book. Not sure why but I enjoyed the characters their plights and the tempo of the book. Hope you enjoy!
Yes. For a refreshing change-a great story thats not a detective, spy, other thriller or a romance.
At the moment it stands alone-unique..
Lise-The main character.
The answer is the same as above.
Audible needs to pair great authors with great narrators more often as in this book. Often great stories are ruined by the narrators.
I bought this book on sale for $4.95, so wasn't expecting a great listen just something to get me by til I got my monthly credit. Actually the story was good and did keep me listening. Even though I thought I knew who was Ariel's father, the story getting there was good. The narrator was good with the female voices, but the male voices were pretty bad. Still a pretty good listen.
