I love the series. I love the narrator. (I will be looking for more books by him) This book was everything I expect from Kathleen Brooks. She has become one of my favorite authors.
After pining away for 2 years over Pierce Davies, Tammy Fields finally decides to grow up and forget about the man who doesn't even notice her. Fabulous story that includes all the characters of Keeneston. I love how they all band together to help each other when someone needs it.
"Forgive and forget"
I am slowly working my way through all of the Bluegrass stories and cannot wait for Cy and Ahmed's stories as well as the few singles I have still to read.
As always, I have to reinforce what a great choice Eric G Dove is as narrator. Whenever I read rather than listen to a Bluegrass story, I cannot help but hear his version of their voices in my head.
I am an unashamed adoring fan of all things Bluegrass. It is therefore painful for me to admit that this is the first time that I have come away disappointed. The relationship between Pierce and Tammy was lacking in intensity compared to the other relationships in the Bluegrass realm.
I found his sudden revelation and calling her his 'sweetheart' too sudden and unconvincing. For me it felt like the relationship with thrown in just to make it a romance novel whereas the other factors of the story felt much more believable and enjoyable.
The Belles coming back to their origins was satisfying and the cameo by the adorable guys from the bomb squad made rot really good entertainment.
The ending was both unexpected and logical, and I hope that my disappointment with this novel will be a soon forgotten disappointment because I have been looking forward to Cy's story for a long time.
