Publisher's Summary

Tess "Mac" McPhail is one of country music's brightest lights, a multimillionaire accustomed to public adoration and the demands of a stellar career. 18 years after leaving her hometown, Mac is summoned back by her sisters to help care for their widowed mother. If the difficulties of a jealous sister and an intractable parent aren't enough, Mac faces the indifference of Kenny Kronek, the neighbor she taunted through high school, who has turned into a handsome divorcé. Discovering that Kenny's daughter Casey is a promising country singer, Mac becomes her mentor and eventually wins Kenny's heart. But as the pampered star learns to treasure the newfound commitments of family and community, her relationships are threatened by her return to Nashville and the trappings of superstardom. Small Town Girl is an affecting, scintillating, lyrical novel that could only come from the gifted pen of LaVyrle Spencer.

Not at all what I expected

Has Small Town Girl turned you off from other books in this genre?


How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was very monitone and very boring. No excitement in her voice. Strange since it was the author who was reading it!

So disappointing...

What disappointed you about Small Town Girl?

Firstly, it's abridged. I loath abridged books. Secondly, I love this author and always enjoy the full development of her characters. I am a romance novel fan and I always recommend her books. 'Twice Loved' was my favourite book for a long time.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not a LaVyrle.

What didn’t you like about LaVyrle Spencer’s performance?

The character's voices and the terrible song.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It was short.

Any additional comments?

Don't listen to this in audio. If you like romance books you will love LaVyrle's books. There is something intimate about romance novels that gets lost in translation to audio.
