After twelve years on top of the charts, country music superstar Lily Rae has decided to hang up the microphone and move home. Becoming Lillian Raftzen again is harder than she anticipated and soon, it seems running home is not enough to escape from her manipulative ex-agent, who not only threatens to end her happiness, but her life. When the girl of his dreams walks back into his life twelve years later, Justin DeLuca realizes as much as he loves her, she is no longer the girl he remembers. With everything they must overcome, can the two of them make their dreams come true? Lily's dream to sing and Justin's dream for a family are so very far from the same path. But by veering off course they find a new dream on a new path ending up right where it all began.....home.

I thought this was a great story and very well written. What a great first novel. I can't wait to read what she writes next. The characters were so easy to relate to and what a great finish. Bravo to a great new author.

5 Stars ~ This book touched me in so many ways.  The saying you can't go home ran through my mind as I read this book.  I lived away for 17 years and never could imagine myslef moving home, but situations change and life happens and you end up doing things you never imagined doing.  This book made me think about not only the characters life but my own.  That, my friends, is a sign of a great book!  Lillian & Justin find themselves back in each others lives, but staying together when normal life is going on, much less the crazy world of country music, has these two on a ride that sure is fun to read! Pick up this book now  ~ fall in love with Justin and Lillian like I did! XOXO Shauna  Daydream Believer Book Blog

 Rachel Smith captured me in the first few pages. I couldn't believe this was only her first novel. She writes with such great detail that you begin to feel like your in Lily Rae's skin. You become Lily. You feel her heartbreak, tears, and laughter as she finds her way back home. Lillian Raftzen returns home after twelve years of being on top. She has accomplished her dream of being a country music star but has also realized that it isn't what it's cracked up to be. She finds herself struggling to fit into the mold of returning home. Her homecoming isn't as welcome as she'd like. Justin DeLuca has always love Lillian and had to watch her go after graduation. Even though she left town, she didn't leave his heart. Now that she is back he is determined to keep her safe no matter what the cost is.  I finished this story in one sitting and couldn't put it down. Rachel Smith will draw you and keep you reading with a mix of mystery, suspense, romance, and heartache. As you find out more about Lillian's past as a country music star you'll want to hold in your arms and soothe her. This was a beautiful story and I cannot wait to see more from Rachel Smith!

Great book to curl up with on the beach or a rainy afternoon. Well written, smooth transition from past to present. Would love to meet the characters and hear Lily Rae sing! This book speaks to the many of us who have followed a somewhat jagged path to realize our goals and dreams in life.
