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!

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.
Humor, the story makes me laugh but also makes me cheer for the main characters
Like always Amanda Ronconi rocks! ! !
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.
You will not be disapointed !
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.
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.

Molly Harper wrote it and Amanda Ronconi read it, need I say more? These two just go together.
Its fun loving, laughable characters and situations keep you wanting more.
The humor Molly Harper infuses into the entire story.
Except that this book is written in first person there are aspects of it that remind me of some of Nora Roberts earlier books. Her dialogue and her ability to make me feel truly sad or laugh out loud. All very similar to some Nora Roberts books.
Yes. She is always very good.
Yes. I just about did, actually.
Fun story. Great characters. This is a good book to listen to when you are looking for a an easy story that is really, really good but is not going to leave you gripping the edge of your seat the whole time.
I'm a busy mom who loves to listen to books. Mostly I listen on my way to and from work.
Downhome Sweet Love
The story is just cute and funny. Love all the characters and how it just gets right to the point.
I would have to say at the beginning with the car fire. Too funny!
I loved both Bonnie and Will. They were meant for each other.
A great read and another Harper and Ronconi treat!
Love to read!
This book was okay, but I wish I hadn't wasted a credit on it. There is very little development between the two characters. After he screws her over, they have very little interaction but suddenly at the end realize they can't live without each other.
"Bluegrass with a twist"
Easy listening to a very funny story. You might be able to see the story coming but you get too wrapped up in the characters to care.
Bonney, she is the easiest to relate to.
Always a brilliant and well timed performance to get the most out of the book.
