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!

    "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.

    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!

    "Really can't get enough"

    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 !

    Character Rating: 4.00

    Audio Rating: 4.50 (not part of the overall rating)

    First Thought when Finished: Rhythm and Bluegrass by Molly Harper was a fun romp with small town laughs that brought me back to my roots. As someone who grew up in a super small town, this reminds me a lot of the people I grew up around. The character were fun, the end was a little rushed, and overall I smiled A LOT!

    Audio Thoughts:

    Narrated By Amanda Ronconi / Length: 5 hrs and 57 mins


    Amanda Ronconi and Molly Harper are one of those duos that I think work well together. Amanda gets Molly's humor and always knocks it out park.

    Story
    "It defies a headline"

    I kept seeing the 1970's Dukes of Hazzard and The New Girl in my head. Not sure if that was good or bad, but I really enjoyed it. This book follows the Bluegrass formula, but that's ok. Sometimes we need great, fun characters we know to struggle and have a happy ending.

    I can so relate, having grown up in the very places in the book and having Southern in-laws. Molly Harper is a wonderful author, spinner great, realistic characters full of fire, wit and flaws. Amanda Ronconi is brilliant. I will listen to anything she narrates because she's just that great.

    "Another fun story from Molly Harper"
    Any additional comments?

    I think some people did not like this story, but I found it really charming and sweet. It isn't high art and that needs to be remembered. It is a fun story about people falling in love. One aspect I found confusing though is that this is book 2 of the series, but it seemed like it took place before or at the same time as book 1. Which, if you have read book 1 of a series, it can be confusing for book 2 to unfold as though book 1 didn't happen. Regardless, this was a fun story that made me laugh out loud at times, plus I loved the underdog aspect of Bonnie's situation in the town.
