From Here to Nashville by Julie Stock


Two worlds, 4,000 miles apart. Is their love strong enough to keep them together?

Rachel Hardy dreams of being a successful country music singer in Nashville’s Music City, four thousand miles away from her lonely life in Dorset. When Jackson Phillips, an independent record label owner, encourages her band to audition for a nationwide ‘Open Mic’ competition, she decides they have nothing to lose.

But when she starts to fall in love with Jackson, the stakes suddenly get higher and she finds herself with a great big dilemma on her hands. Should she abandon her dream and take the easy way out or should she leave the life she has always known behind and take a gamble on a man who has personal demons of his own?

Follow Rachel and Jackson as they learn to trust in love again to see whether their music really can unite them.

My review
This is great fun – a young British girl from Dorset wants to become an authentic Country and Western singer in Nashville. What a challenge! The determined and talented Rachel is one of our two main characters, and the other is Jackson, a music producer. These two narrate the story and their alternate points of view add a lot of interest to the story. They’re from very different backgrounds but have a shared love of music. And will there be a different kind of love too? They’re both interesting, imperfect, make mistakes but learn from them, and are generous at heart.

There are atmospheric settings in both the UK and America. The author really makes you feel like you are there with the characters.

Music is central to the story and helps bring the book alive. If you like country music, but even if you don’t, you’ll enjoy seeing behind the musical scenes.

The pace is brisk, and the plot is enjoyable and fresh. Julie Stock’s writing flows and is enjoyable to read.
