Publisher's Summary

In the second e-novella in Molly Harper’s Bluegrass series of contemporary romances, two people determined to fulfill their own agendas come head to head—and find love in the process.

Kentucky Tourism Commission employee Bonnie Turkle is up Mud Creek without a paddle. When she gets permission from the state historical society to restore McBride’s Music Hall in Mud Creek, Kentucky, to its former glory, she thinks the community will welcome her with open arms. Instead, her plans interfere with a proposal to sell the property to a factory that would bring much-needed jobs to the town.

Even though Bonnie is trying to preserve mayor Will McBride’s family heritage, he is more concerned with the welfare of his people than memories of the past. Will finds her optimistic sentimentality extremely annoying—but that doesn’t stop him from kissing Bonnie senseless.

With an inspection deadline looming and local saboteurs ruining her restoration, Bonnie must find a way to compromise with Will to save McBride’s and the town…while hopefully winning a few more kisses in the process!

    Story
    "Love Molly Harper and Ronconi"
    Would you listen to Rhythm and Bluegrass again? Why?

    I've listened to every Molly Harper audio book I have several times. I know I'll listen to this again. I don't know how she comes up with these bizarre story lines, but they are funny and always have an unusual twist. This BlueGrass series is fun. Jane Jamison, and Naked Werewolf, I've listened to them all several times.


    What did you like best about this story?

    You get to know Bonnie and her background, but you still have the other characters from the first book in this story. I really did enjoy it and looking forward to listening to the next in the series.


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to Amanda Ronconi narrate all of Molly Harper's books and she is a natural. But I've listened to her narrate other books as well. She is a natural talent


    Who was the most memorable character of Rhythm and Bluegrass and why?

    Well this book is about Bonnie but there are so many people that are memorable in this story.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the quirky story lines that Molly Harper comes up with. Looking forward to the third book in this series. I just wished this one was a bit longer but it was still worth it to listen to.

    "Makes me laugh every time"

    Molly Harper and her dry wit make me laugh every time and Amanda Ronconi is the perfect match for reading her. Do not miss any of her books.

    "Just Okay ...."
    What did you like best about Rhythm and Bluegrass? What did you like least?

    There seemed to be more depth to this book than the other two in the series. My favorite scene was when Wil was trying to save Bonnie's "baby" from her burning car. I liked the way the Bonnie handled herself in the face of opposition.


    If you’ve listened to books by Molly Harper before, how does this one compare?

    This three book series is the first I've listened to from Molly Harper. Book 2 really can be independent. It isn't reliant on info from the first book, and the 3rd book isn't reliant on info from the 2nd book. After listening to these three, I'm not sure I'd read or listen to anything else from Molly Harper again.


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

    This series was the first time I heard Amanda. I would like to listen to her reading another author before I make any judgements. Her female characters seem to come across a little sarcastic all the time, it could just be the author's writing style.


    Did Rhythm and Bluegrass inspire you to do anything?

    Nope!


    Any additional comments?

    I'd say skip books 1 and 3. If you really want to listen, just go for book 2. Again I'll state these are the first Molly Harper books I've read and I didn't care for the writing style. The characters do not seem to have much depth. The first person writing wore on my nerves after awhile.

    "I love it when an author makes me laugh and sigh."
    Where does Rhythm and Bluegrass rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love Molly Harper and her characters. I really loved this book but I would rate it my 3rd favorite so far. But I could not imagine not reading it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Bonnie. She is so determined and sweet.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    She really brings the characters to life. Her voice is so fun and expressive. She makes these southern girls come to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both!!!! I started to write down the phrases that make me laugh. I am trying to incorporate them into my sayings. It is fabulous.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't miss out!!!
    It is a super fun treat!

    Title: "Rhythm and Bluegrass" - Book 2, Bluegrass Series
    Written by: Molly Harper
    Narrated by: Amanda Ronconi
    Format: audiobook via audible.com
    Overall rating: 3.75/5 stars
    Performance: 5/5 stars (AR is THE BEST!)
    Story: 3.25/5 stars

    Brief remarks:

    My I just beginny saying, I think Amanda Ronconi is one of, if not THE, BEST narrators in the business?! I buy books because she is reading them, at times!

    As this story opens with our female "lead" and a car fire, I was already worried about boredom setting in. I am NOT a history fan. AT. ALL. In ANY way shape form it format. I admit this because the basic premise if this story is built upon restoring some significant music history in a super small Kentucky town . I started my yawn only to be interrupted by the hot save-the-lady "lead" dude. Hello, "trademark panty dropping smiles". *fist pump*! Does Ms. Harper know her readers, or what?! Lol

    Seriously, I recommend sticking with the story as it gets interesting and has a really good twist to look forward to.

    Light, uncomplicated, humorous at times & fun Molly Harper reading (listening)! She's sleaus worth my time ;)

    Enjoy, fellow reader!

    Cheers!

    If this writer and her perfectly balanced books. But if she ever changes her narrator, I would be willing to head up a revolt. Harper & Ronconi are wonderful together. Thanks for the fun.

    "Easy listening, fun story, good time with friends"
    Would you listen to Rhythm and Bluegrass again? Why?

    I like Molly Harper, I like her sense of humor, this series next to "Naked werewolf" books is my favorite. This book (#2) is , I beleive, the best in the series. It's funny, original, and really enjoyable. I was upset when it was done. Molly Harper makes me feel like I am catching up with my friends. When I listen to her books I find myself involved emotionally in the characters life. Molly Harper makes us experience the book emotionally and that's really awesome.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Humor, the story makes me laugh but also makes me cheer for the main characters


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Like always Amanda Ronconi rocks! ! !


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A story about the Back Then, Right Now and One Day coming together to teach a man, a family and a town how to believe again.


    Any additional comments?

    You will not be disapointed !
