"Small Town Girl"

In one of her most unforgettable novels, New York Times bestselling author LaVyrle Spencer chronicles the passionate awakening of a country music star who embraced fame but fled from love.
Eighteen years ago, Tess McPhail left her tiny hometown of Wintergreen, Missouri for the bright lights of Nashville and never looked back. Now, one of country music’s biggest stars, “Mac” is a hardworking woman with little time for a personal life—until her sister insists she come home to help care for their widowed mother.

The welcome Mac receives is less than warm, especially from her former next-door neighbor Kenny Kroneck. Now a handsome divorcé with a teenage daughter, Kenny refuses to give Mac the time of day. But when Mac discovers that Kenny’s daughter is a promising country music talent, she assumes the role of mentor and gradually learns to open her hardened heart to the sweet rewards of caring and commitment.

My Thoughts...

I have always enjoyed LaVyrle Spencer's books, however, she retired from writing books about 20+ years ago. So, when I run across one of her books I always get excited and if I haven't read it, I just have to have it. I found this book at our local Book Warehouse store a few days ago, so of course like I said: "I just have to have this book."

I found this a fun light romantic page turner. "Small Town Girl" springs to life as next door neighbors, Tess and Kenny are trying to come to terms with their past, wondering if they should give love a chance. It was a delight to read even though this book is 22 years old, before iPads, cell phones, etc. Although, Tess did have what was referred to as a mobile phone. Otherwise, everyone else in the story had house phones. I like reading vintage books. I suppose a 22 year book can be called vintage...

Because I enjoyed it I awarded it 5***** "Vintage" stars...
