Sometimes a man finds trouble…and sometimes it comes looking for him…
Heartache makes for good country music. It’s what country superstar Butch McCormick keeps telling himself. He’s done with women and can’t handle one more disappointment. He’s taking a few months off to work on the old house on his parents’ land to fix shutters, scrape paint, and figure out what he wants in life…
Then she appears out of nowhere, with red hair and a peaches-and-cream complexion…and just so damned lost.
Architect Kate Riley doesn’t have the luxury of getting lost, having a damaged car, or being smitten by a sexy-talkin’ cowboy with an irresistible smile. But the longer Kate stays at Elderberry Farm, the stranger things get. For one, there’s the crazy chemistry between her and Butch. For another, dead bodies are starting to turn up…and Kate might be the murderer’s next victim.

Rated 4.5 "Country" Stars
This book is definitely a gem. I don't care for Country music either, but still loved it. There really wasn't any "twang" in it anyway, lol.
It's a Rom Susp that had a great murder mystery where everyone that the hero was close to was being killed off. I guessed early on w... ...more
Lost in Tennessee quickly became one of my favorite books of all time. I was about 30% in it, and I already knew this was a 10 Star novel, and it never failed me.
The story drew from the first page, while the last one had me begging for more.
It’s also the debut of the author, which only elevates m... ...more

Lost in Tennessee is a great premise, a country star who's essentially living the songs he sings, trying to get life back on track, and who shouldn't be interested in falling in love...again.
