Overview

Beth Lapointe has her hands full--her teenaged sister is struggling with new motherhood, her job as a waitress is becoming more strenuous as her boss is pulled in different directions, and her alcoholic father is demanding she help him or he'll return to Bluestone.

The last thing she needs is her high school sweetheart to show up live and in person and to realize she still has feelings for him.

Country singer Maddox Bradley has returned to Bluestone, the only place he's ever known peace. A car accident has the tabloids speculating over whether he's drinking again, so he heads to the town where he used to spend his summer vacations.

The town where he fell in love for the first time.

He's surprised Beth is still there, but pleased. When he finds out she needs help, he wants nothing more than to give it to her, to make up for leaving her behind all those years ago. But is she willing to take it from a recovering alcoholic who has no plans to stick around?

    Beth Lapointe spent her childhood avoiding abuse when she could

    Beth Lapointe spent her childhood avoiding abuse when she could and defending her brothers and sister when she couldn’t. In spite of her best efforts, she simply outgrew one set of problems and accepted another when Linda, her rebellious teen-aged sister, got pregnant in high school, developed an alcohol addiction, following in their father’s footsteps, and refuses to give her baby up for adoption.

    Beth’s job at Quinn’s Bar and Grill, social center of tiny Bluestone, Minnesota, keeps her tiny family fed, and baby Jonas in diapers--but not much else. In spite of interest from the town’s good doctor, dating isn’t something Beth has time for--so not getting over Maddox Bradley, her high school love, doesn’t matter.

    Except that Maddox Bradley achieved his dream, and is a mega country star. Women pursue him--and so does drinking. His affairs and his stints in rehab are tabloid fodder, his songs are all hits--he’s leading the perfect life. Or would be, if only he could forget hurting Beth when he walked out of her life, and forgetting the beautiful little town he spent his summers in when Bluestone needed him most. Pained by guilt over skipping a concert to help save the town’s economy, Maddox decides to drop in at Quinn’s for a few weeks of summer music, hoping to make financial amends.

    Beth, already at wit’s ends, faces new challenges when impossible demands and her always present need for Maddox collide with the reality of her life--a life in which love has neither place nor time to grow.

    MJ Fredrick’s Bluestone Song is book 2 of the 3 book For Love of Bluestone series, but is also available on its own. Like Bluestone Homecoming, Ms. Fredrick weaves a tale full of emotion and understanding of small towns and the people who inhabit them. You’ll worry about Beth, root for her--and you’ll flat out love Maddox. Love scenes are hot, but I also liked the tenderness leading up to them.
    You don’t have to be a country music fan to love this book, but I am--and she knows the field well enough to throw in the right details to make this book one you’ll cherish.

    I finished Bluestone Song in one sitting, and haven’t started another book yet, because like Beth because I don’t want to let Maddox go yet!
