Heartache—the best place to heal
Chance of a lifetime
It’s finally Heather Finley’s moment. After spending years looking after her mother in the tiny town of Heartache, Tennessee, Heather’s about to follow her dream of singing country music. She can nearly hear the audiences hollering…until the town’s handsome mayor, Zach Chance, comes to her with troubling questions about her late father’s past. Once again, Heather has to choose: protect her family or chase her heart’s desire? Zach is determined to help, and to convince Heather that she belongs in Heartache—with him. But is he just another distraction? Or could he be the one to show Heather how a small-town love can make her big-time dreams come true?
Review

I received an ARC of this book from Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s release blast promotions.

I followed this series from the very beginning. The first book was good, but I felt like it was too simple, and there wasn’t really anything that stood out in the story. When I read the second book, I enjoyed it more than I did the first one. I liked the teenage love story that was injected into it. This third book, though, I think this would be my favorite in the series.

I’ve read numerous books from this author because she has a way of writing deep love stories in a simple environment. Readers won’t have to go through a state of being an emotional wreck over her books. However, the message behind every story is clear and powerful enough for readers to easily understand. Another thing that I love about this series is the small-town feel it has. I love stories with country and small town settings.

I will definitely recommend this book. While it is the third book in the series, this is a standalone, so you don’t have to read the first two books. I suggest, though, that you actually do read them as well because they are worth the hours you spend. Every book in this series is touchingly sweet and romantic that any romance reader will appreciate.

Review

I received a reviewer’s copy of this book from Lola’s Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review.

I think this second book in Joanne Rock’s Heartache series is even sweeter than the first one. I mean, I truly liked Nina and Mack’s love story. However, Erin and Remy were just so right for each other, it’s difficult not to rate them higher than the other book.

Erin was such a great girl. She was fierce, confident, and helpful. She was also fighter who knows what she wants and works on getting it. Remy is a mess. However, he was sweet and him being a mess was completely understandalbe, after the things that he and his daughter went through.

Like the first book, there are still two subplots that happens simultaneously. First is the marriage problems between Bethany and her husband, who also happens to be Erin’s brother. In this book, though, things are starting to look promising for them. The other subplot is that of Remy’s daughter and a boy she likes who is also in love with her.

One of the things I loved about the first book was the fact that a lot of things were happening at the same time. It’s the same for this book. The scenes were not always of the hero and heroine. A lot of scenes only had the main character and other secondary characters. I love that is this book, we get the whole package of an entire small town that’s bonded together in many different ways.

Nights Under The Tennessee Stars is a book that’s worth checking out. For fans of category romance and Harlequin books, this series is one of the best ones from their Super Romance line. It’s really a good story that’s not just about love but also about letting go, cleaning up your life and moving on.

Review

I received a reviewer’s copy of this book from Lola’s Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review.

Promises Under The Peach Tree is a sweet little second-chance love story of two people who had a beautiful love story when they were young until circumstances tore them apart. When the heroine went back to their hometown, their love story is given another chance to grow.

For a category romance, this book is truly sweet without being cheesy. Plus, there’sa sub story going on with the hero’s niece and a guy she likes as well as the hero’s brother who is having marriage problems.

I liked this book because even if it was a category romance, it covered a lot of ground and did not spend the whole book talking about just the hero and the heroine. It also showed a side to the secondary characters that made me want to know more about them too.

I am going to give this book three red hearts because I liked its sweetness, and I have a thing for small towns and the stories that grow from there. I also liked the subplot and the people in Heartache that the author introduced me to.
