    Tess Boone, a disillusioned celebrity journalist, returns back to her hometown in the Ozarks to interview her first love Buck Campbell, now a famous (but also disillusioned) country western singer. Tess left Buck to pursue her dreams and please her father who wanted bigger things for his baby girl. In the process she stomped all over Buck's heart. Heartbroken he turned to booze and women. Headed straight for Hell, he was saved by Georgina, an older woman who saw his potential and made him a singi Tess Boone, a disillusioned celebrity journalist, returns back to her hometown in the Ozarks to interview her first love Buck Campbell, now a famous (but also disillusioned) country western singer. Tess left Buck to pursue her dreams and please her father who wanted bigger things for his baby girl. In the process she stomped all over Buck's heart. Heartbroken he turned to booze and women. Headed straight for Hell, he was saved by Georgina, an older woman who saw his potential and made him a singing sensation. She molds him into the man the public sees and he marries her even though he'll never love her. When Tess and Buck meet up again (years later) the sparks fly and they realize what empty lives they've been living. In a few short days their love is reborn. Only now there are two big obstacles in their way: Georgina (for starters) and Buck's good-guy persona. Will they sacrifice their careers or their hearts? Will I care when they do? (The answer to that one would be NO) Ms. Garrett has a beautiful way of describing the Ozarks and her vivid imagery breathes life into this familiar story of lost love. Despite her lyrical writing I thought the heroine was self-centered and very difficult to sympathize with. The hero never came alive for me because we mainly see him through the heroine's eyes and learn his feelings via his song lyrics. This technique absolutely did not work for me. I would've enjoyed a hundred or so more pages of the hero's viewpoint. And (finally, you say?) I thought the ending was way too vague and pat. A miss, a dud, a do not bother unless you've never read a truly great romance. There are way too many good books out there to waste time reading this one.

He comes back just after baby is born. The ending does not tie up loose ends of divorce/marriage/them getting back together. Tastefully done - no overt sex scenes - values. Great first novel.

    I go back and read this book each and every year when I want something to make me cry, make me smile, make me laugh and move me. It symbolizes home for me. Always on my nightstand I pick it up every few months. A quick read, but one that leaves a lasting impression.

    Found this book at a 2nd hand shop. Opened it up to find a simple yellow post it note and penciled on it were the words “Nice Story!” it was just that, a simple little Nice Story.

    Romance, but kinda messy. Tess and Jamie were first loves, but Jamie is married and a celebrity when they meet again. Ending doesn't quite say if/how the divorce/marriage happens.

    This is a new author for me.

The writing is also a bit maudlin and melodramatic. Tess is not at all likeable, and Buck is a bland, wimpy character. The other characters, and their stories and relationships, were far more interesting to me. Unfortunately, none of the characters, nor conflicts, were fleshed out, and the ending was vague at best. My library has a few more titles by this author, and because I see some potential, I will probably check them out, and give the author another try.

    Very sweet love story of two people who met as teenagers - finding completion of themselves in each other. Through ambition and expectations, they separated but chance brings them back together. Storyline is somewhat expected but told almost poetically.

    It was a really good book. Well written. Spoiler alert: I wanted to know more, it didn't give much hints towards her being pregnant. And they forgave each other very easy.
