A sparkling, highly entertaining romantic comedy about a beloved country girl group from the best-selling author of Pack Up the Moon:

Adele, Molly, and Lana are The Darling Songbirds, the country-singing sisters who gained fame in their teens for their smart lyrics and sweet harmonies. But when their father died suddenly on the eve of their big tour, the threesome shattered.

Now, 11 years later, Adele arrives back in Darling Bay, the sleepy gold-rush town founded by her great-grandfather. Uncle Hugh has left to the sisters the Golden Spike, an old country saloon.

Except this is not the welcoming saloon Adele remembers from her childhood. The building is a ruin, the business is broke, and customers are scarce. Add into the mix Nate Houston - the handsome, guitar-playing bartender who had always believed he would be the next owner - and Adele has one potent cocktail on her hands.

She needs her sisters Molly and Lana now more than ever - but the heartache still runs deep. Can a rundown saloon in a sleepy town finally offer the sisters a way back home, and for Adele, a way into love?

just not enough

This novel did not hit the mark for me and, as I have others in my TBL queue, I abandoned it halfway thru.  Sands, a fav narrator, did another wonderful job, but even that couldn't keep my interest.  The main characters are unremarkable, even though the backstory and the talk about the emotions suggest otherwise, I just found them to be forgettable.  The H is moderately more likeable than the h, but really, the race is too close to call. I found the couple to be sort of tiresome, as there was nothing really gripping going on, I kept forgetting the book was unfinished.  I might come back to this and try it again later in the year, but for right now, I'm queuing up something else narrated by Ms Sands.
