Overview

A brand-new novel in an original eBook series from popular romance author Molly Harper! When Sadie&Josh compete for the same Kentucky Tourism Commission job, sparks fly—turns out Kentucky really is for lovers.

Sadie Hutchins loves her job at the Kentucky Tourism Commission. Not only could her co-workers double as the cast of Parks&Recreation, but she loves finding the unusual sites, hidden gems, and just-plain-odd tourist attractions of her home state. She’s a shoo-in for the director’s job when her boss retires at the end of the year…until hotshot Josh Vaughn shows up to challenge her for the position.

Josh is all sophisticated polish while Sadie’s country comfort, and the two have very different ideas of what makes a good campaign. So when their boss pits them against each other in a winner-takes-all contest, they’re both willing to fight dirty if it means getting what they want. But it turns out, what Josh and Sadie want could be each other—and Josh’s kisses are the best Kentucky attraction Sadie’s found yet!

My Bluegrass Baby is a delightful read Sadie Hutchins is up for a promotion at her job for the Kentucky Tourism Commission.  She is at a Derby function when she is informed that there is a new contender for the job.  Hunky Josh Vaughn has great credentials from his job in Atlanta but needs a life change and when he heard about the position from a frat brother he applied.  Sadie’s boss has decreed that Josh and Sadie must come up with competing campaigns by the end of the summer; they will be presented at the fair and the citizens will vote for their favorites.  The winner will get the job.  Josh is citified polish and Sadie is home town comfort.   Will they let their growing attraction for one another get in the way of the competition?   Molly Harper has done it again.  With a quirky cast of characters and some genuinely laugh out loud moments My Bluegrass Baby is a delightful read

Reviewed by SUZANNE & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog …this was a well written book which makes you laugh and is packed with memorable characters, so the fact that the romance wasn’t too strong, although disappointing, didn’t effect my enjoyment of it. ~ Under the Covers Sadie Hutchings loves her job working for the Kentucky Tourist Commission, finding the weird and wonderful attractions that the state has to offer and spreading the word, so when her bosses job as Marketing head opens up and she is guaranteed the position she can’t wait to get stuck in. But there is a snag, a very sexy snag in the form of Josh Vaughn who, thorough his connections is now in direct competition for her job! But as the competition to win the job heats up and the whole office has chosen sides, the undeniable attraction between Sadie and Josh escalates….. I normally associate Molly Harper with Paranormal Romance so I was intrigued when I saw My Bluegrass Baby pop up and decided to give it a try. I found that her contemporary romance isn’t that much different from her paranormal ones! She still has quirky characters and humour that had me laughing all the way to the end. The book was told in first person through Sadie’s eyes and although I am not normally a fan of this perspective I didn’t mind it; Sadie was such a wacky, sarcastic and hilarious character so reading through her thought processes was fun and quickly seduced me into the book. As well as Sadie the characters around her office from the bubbly Kelsey to the oblivious Charlie were all great, I wish the office I worked in was half as much fun! What might put romance readers off a little is that I didn’t think the romance in this was very strong, not only because I didn’t really feel the connection between Josh and Sadie, but also because this book reads more like a funny chick lit rather then a romance novel. But this was a well written book which makes you laugh and is packed with memorable characters, so the fact that the romance wasn’t too strong, although disappointing, didn’t effect my enjoyment of the it. A great feel good read, I really hope that this becomes a series so we can explore some more office romances in the Kentucky Tourist Commission! *ARC provided by publisher

I've missed the Molly Harper, Amanda Ronconi duo. Its been almost a year since I picked up an audio book by this duo and it was too long. My Bluegrass Baby was the laugh out loud, sweet romance I've come to expect from Harper. And Ronconi delivers those one-liners so perfectly I don't think you can help but laugh out loud, wherever you are, no matter how inappropriate the timing. My Bluegrass Baby won't blow you away with the originality of its storyline - you know the end pretty much as soon as you start. But that's really not the point - the getting there is the fun part. I love the characters Harper creates, they're so real - they are full of glaring flaws and weaknesses, but they have so much heart and goodness too. I loved the main characters Sadie and Josh - even when they were behaving badly. I'm so used to Harper writing in small town settings, I didn't realize at first that My Bluegrass Baby doesn't have that at all. But she created her own version of a small town in the tourism office's community - they're like that small town where everyone's in everyone's business and, with few exceptions, loves each other like a big, dysfunctional family. I love that element in her books and I'm glad it showed up in a unique way here. If your looking for a quick romance that will make you smile and laugh, pick up My Bluegrass Baby. And I insist, you HAVE to listen to this one. It would be a shame to miss out on the greatness of Amanda Ronconi!

My Bluegrass Baby is bright, bubbly, and fun. How else would you describe a book that opens in a bathroom stall immediately after the main character has tossed her cookies? But it is not because she is hungover, this media maven has a severe case of nervousness. Sadie is lovable, quirky and owns the fact that she's pretty. She is also determined to become marketing director for the Kentucky Tourism Commission and is pretty much a shoe in for the job until Josh Vaughn walks into her life and becomes her main competition and potential new boyfriend. The characters are charming including the State of Kentucky. Molly Harper makes Kentucky more than just a backdrop; the state is also a quirky, lovable character that you get to know as the book progresses. But, back to Josh, Sadie and their office full of characters. What made this book such a great read was the relationship between these people, the fast paced story, and the sharp dialogue. Josh and Sadie's love/hate relationship is interesting and kept me interested. Add to that the competition to see who finally does become marketing director and how that conflict pulls in the supporting characters and you have a pretty compelling novel. The weakest part of My Bluegrass Baby is the ending. Josh's decision felt rushed and did not fit the ""person"" Harper built him up to be throughout the book. In spite of that, My Bluegrass Baby is at the top of my list for light reading by the pool or on the beach. It's a fun story with some great characters. Reviewed by Karon for Cocktails and Books

I have read all of Molly Harper's books and she never disappoints. This one was short, but it was still classical Molly. She always manages to have the right amount of comedy, with the right amount of twist and the right amount of romance. Even though this one was not about the super natural (vampires, witches and werewolves), it is still a must read.
