Publisher Description

Relationships are at the heart of women's fiction, and Herron could teach a master class on creating them. Chicklit Central 

Rachael Herron seamlessly blends romance, friendship, and laughter. – Barbara Bretton, USA Today Bestselling Author

From international bestseller Rachael Herron, comes a book too delightful to put down:  

Once Adele, Molly and Lana were The Darling Songbirds, a world-famous country band. Now they're just three sisters who barely speak. But that’s about to change. 

Middle sister Molly arrives in town, and is immediately drawn to the neglected little café where she worked as a teenager. Could she dare to bring it back to life? As lead singer, Molly had always been the voice of the band. But caught between controlling big sister Adele and demanding baby sister Lana, she never felt heard. If she's going to reopen the café, she'll do it on her own terms, no more being bossed. So the last person she should fall for is the handsome Sheriff Colin McMurty – the man whose job it is to tell people exactly what to do . . .

Want to move to Darling Bay!

I received an early release copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was the first book I’ve read of the Songbird series (there is a book one.) I have read the Cypress Hollow series. What can I say? I love Rachael Herron’s books. I am not a huge “romance” reader, but her books focus on more than just romance. Rachael writes in a way that challenges you, as the reader, to put the book down. I end up reading far past when I should, often falling asleep while still trying to get through another chapter.

The Songbird series is based on three sisters who were once a rather popular country group, the Darling Songbirds. This book focuses on Molly, and her return to her “hometown” of Darling Bay. All three sisters have gone their separate ways and started leading their own adult lives. Molly returns home to visit her sister and try to find her way.

There are revelations and topics in this book that are so timely. Rachael doesn’t shy away from talking about subjects that are sometimes kept in the shadows. Her characters learn so much about themselves throughout the novel. They find their inner strength and character. Molly comes to Darling Bay fairly broken, though she thinks she’s conquered her demons. It takes a few side battles for her to learn who she really is. I loved that Molly wasn’t perfect, nor was any other character in this book. They are real people.

Rachael’s female characters are strong women who sometimes don’t realize their own strength. They are fighting similar battles to the battles we fight every day. I always find a character that I can relate to in each of her books. Rachael’s writing is strong - you can visualize very easily where you are and who these people are. That is one of the joys in reading her novels. There is definitely some good, hot romance, but nothing over the top. For those who love a good love story, you won’t be disappointed.

Now that I’ve read book two of this series, I am definitely going to go back to book one. I want to learn everything I can about Adele, Molly and Lana Darling, and anxiously await the next book in the series.

I paid $6.00 for this, and regret every penny. The heroine is portrayed as immature and needy, and I will not be reading any more from this author.

Realistic Romance

I received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.

What can I say, I love Rachael Herron's romances. They are light, easy reads that are meticulously written. Herron writes male characters that are human and relatable, unlike many romance authors. They love, hate, laugh and make mistakes all while treating women with respect. This shouldn't be as difficult to find in romance as it often is. Her female characters are similarly human and dimensional. There are no one note people in Darling Bay.

For me the highlight of this particular book is the way Herron writes about a woman's struggle with being "curvy". Collin loves Molly for her curves, but all Molly can hear are he voices of people who told he for years she needed to loose weight or was prettiest when her body was unhealthily slim. This is familiar territory for me. Molly's struggles could have been my own. And, the way those struggles affect her relationship are totally authentic. I loved this book because it was a pleasure to read and because it reminded me that my curves are beautiful too.
