Publisher's Summary

When famous - and infamous - country singer Rye Crenshaw saunters into the diner where she cooks, Tory Simmons is certain she's got him pegged. He's a bad boy who indulges himself in all things, women included. But while she couldn't care less about country music or arrogant men, Rye makes her an offer she can't refuse when he asks her to be his private chef on his multi-city concert tour. The job is the answer to all her prayers: It will clear out her debt and finance the fresh start she desperately needs.

Rye is certain his sassy new cook is the last woman who'd ever tempt him, but spending time with the wholesome girl next door will do wonders for his damaged public image, whether she likes being forced into the spotlight or not. Her food also happens to be the best he's ever eaten, both comforting and seductive. But spending time with Tory on the road shows him a new side to her - one that's as impossible to resist as her food. And when an emergency in his family whisks him home, he does the one thing he's never risked: he lets a woman into his heart....

Soon the emotions Rye faked for the tabloids become all too real, but will the country heaven he's found in Tory's arms survive in the real world?

Total Disappointment!

Bad language and the sample showed none! I thought great I found a new clean Author to try. Didn't happen. Em Eldridge sounds lovely like a good Narrator? Ava Miles there is a vast language in our dictionaries
Please don't use bad language there are readers who care what they listen to. I Am one of the them.

4.5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. This is the first book by this author that I've read and I will definitely read more by her in the future.

Audible: I added the whispersync audible narration to this kindle book. The narrator did a good job. I recommend this as an audiobook.

Country love

Any additional comments?

I read this book about 2 years ago and decided to listen to it as I travel to and from work. Rye and Tory are both such strong characters. They give one another a run for their money. Rye hires Tory to be his cook while he travels for his summer tour. He knows she needs the money and that she loves to cook, so it's a win/win situation.
Tory is not impressed by celebrity life and she tends to keep to herself. But, the more and more time she spends with Rye, the more she realizes that there is more to him than his tough guy, country image that he uses for his fans.
When Rye asks her to go with him to see his estranged family after his father has a heart attack, he begins to realize how much he wants her to be in his life.
There are many bumps in the road for Rye and Tory, and ultimately, he has to overcome trust issues if he doesn't want to lose her forever.

Country music star, poor girl. Yeah

What made the experience of listening to Country Heaven the most enjoyable?

Very interesting merge of classes between the country music star hero - the poor working class waitress, and the wealthy stiff family. Very well done character development as the story progresses.

What did you like best about this story?

All fans of romance themed novels know that the guys gets the girl in the final chapter - In this story, you really were on the edge of your seat wondering if it was going to happen with all the road blocks and mishaps, and character flaws that kept tipping the cart.

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

The way to a mans heart is truly through his stomach !

Any additional comments?

Another Great performance by Em Eldridge. This is my second Ava Miles book and I will go try another soon.

Enjoyable Romance with Recipes included

What did you love best about Country Heaven?

I am new to AM books and was a little hesitant with one of the lead characters being a Music Star. I AM SO GLAD I READ THIS BOOK. It's all about Family and how family's get started, evolve, and relate with a great romance tossed in for good measure. I'm ready for more of Dare River!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tory Simmons. She may have some financial problems which is how she ends up on the Music Tour (and bus) but she is a lady with strong family values. She was orphaned at a young age due to a car accident and lived with her Grandparents who were wonderful people. She is in the process of finishing her Doctorate in Anthropology when Rye finds her in her Grandparent's Diner working between classes as a Cook. Did I mention her Grandmother was a fabulous cook? She taught Tory everything she knows and a love of cooking.

Which character – as performed by Em Eldridge – was your favorite?

Tory's Grandmother. Along with the wonderful pieces of knowledge, she taught Tory all her wonderful recipes that are shared with us at certain stages of the book, where appropriate including: Mean Truck Driver Pancakes - they will improve anyone's mood. (recipe included in book)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When all the Crenshaw clan are making Sugar Cookies including the niece and nephew.

Any additional comments?

Now don't let me put you off this book by talking about only the women characters. Rye Crenshaw is one hunky, sexy, Country Music Star. Plays the stereotype well. But Tory sees right thru him from the beginning. It took me/and him half the book to figure out "who he really wanted to be".

Country promises

I enjoyed the story and the characters. But am very curious about Rye,a parents and was afraid his father was going to die. I want to know if his parents learned to love each other and why his mother is such a witch. I want to know if they stay together or split up.

Awful language

I was not even able to listen to this book because of the language. I was shocked that it was not noted. I completely wasted my money!!
I’ll research better next time.

Enjoyed this story

Some complicated characters mixed with extremes in acceptable behaviors make for an interesting story and a variety of situations. I have enjoyed a number of books by Ava Miles and can recommend her.
