He’s got to save his career—and himself
Hitting rock bottom has landed country star Boone Williams in the middle of his worst nightmare: a recording studio on a horse therapy farm hours away from Nashville. He has no interest in dealing with his problems or writing a new album. And he’s definitely not interested in the gorgeous, feisty mom of one of Helping Hooves’s young clients. She doesn’t even know who he is! But his record label is one tabloid story from cutting him loose, and Boone can’t seem to turn around without bumping into Ruby and her daughter, Violet. Clearly, Boone’s not going to get what he wants. Could Ruby be just what he needs?

Now her gifted brother could be the rising Nashville star Dean needs for his struggling music label. But it means taking Sawyer away from the horse therapy farm that Faith’s so proud of. That won’t be easy, especially since those old feelings that started all the trouble… Well, let’s just say he can’t go back there, because he doesn’t want to relive the memories of the terrible accident that drove them apart.

Catch a Fallen Star Playlist
Thank you so much for hosting me on your blog today! I am so excited to share my novel, Catch a Fallen Star, with you.
This story features a country music star trying to revive his career. To get in the mood for writing a story about a country singer, I decided to scope out the country channels on my Spotify. This is foreign territory to me. I am more of a rock n’ roll kind of girl, but I actually found a lot of songs that grew on me. Country music is full of heartbreak and plenty of romance. There’s equal parts sass and sentimentality. Here’s my Top 5 Country Songs I listened to while writing or that make me think of Catch a Fallen Star:
- Humble and Kind by Tim McGraw – I heard this song while I was writing the story and felt like Tim had written it just for Boone Williams, the hero in the novel. Boone isn’t the most humble guy in the world. The lessons he learns in the story really are many of the ones Tim sings about in this song. It’s perfect.
- T-Shirt by Thomas Rhett – I love this song. I must have listened to it over and over again while writing. In Heartwarming, we don’t really get to write about what happens when the girl wakes up wearing the boy’s T-shirt, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think about it …
- Better Man by Little Big Town – this song speaks to me because both characters in the book are divorced and Ruby wishes her ex could do better by their daughter just like Boone wishes he was a better man for his daughter. Maybe both guys will surprise everyone in the end of the story …
- Make You Miss Me by Sam Hunt – Who doesn’t want a guy who can sing a song about how you aren’t going to be able to get over him so easily because he’s going to be that awesome?
- Drink You Away by Justin Timberlake – Okay, I know he’s not a country singer but this song has a very country feel to it and it makes me think of Boone. He’s sober, but he knows there aren’t enough drinks in the world to make him forget about Ruby.
Are you a country music fan? What song always speaks to you?
