From international bestseller Rachael Herron, comes a book too delightful to put down:
Once Adele, Molly and Lana were The Darling Songbirds, a world-famous country band. Now they're just three sisters who barely speak. But that's about to change.
Middle sister Molly arrives in town, and is immediately drawn to the neglected little café where she worked as a teenager. Could she dare to bring it back to life? As lead singer, Molly had always been the voice of the band. But caught between controlling big sister Adele and demanding baby sister Lana, she never felt heard. If she's going to reopen the café, she'll do it on her own terms, no more being bossed.
So the last person she should fall for is the handsome Sheriff Colin McMurty - the man whose job it is to tell people exactly what to do.

I have read the Cypress Hallow Series but this is the first book I have read in this series. I enjoyed it very much, the female characters are strong and self sufficient. They are also very caring, thoughtful and generous spirits. I got the impression that no matter what happened in the past such as the breakup of their singing group, family comes first. I look forward to reading more books in this series.
4.5 STARS!! I have some of Rachael Herron's enjoyable women's fiction and Cypress Hollow books, but this is my first venture into Darling Bay. Now, I'm diving head first into all the series surrounding this fabulous world that Darling Bay offers. The Songbird's Call is the second in the Songbirds of Darling Bay series, but reads beautifully as a stand-alone. Molly is the middle sister and voice of the now defunct Darling Songbirds. After the death of their parents, the trio went their separate ways until one by one each sister is pulled back to the town of Darling Bay. Big sister Adele has found her HEA and is working at renovating the old saloon/hotel in Darling Bay. Molly decides to try her hand at fixing up the old cafe where she spent her youth learning to cook the daily specials. As Molly begins the arduous process of renovating the cafe, she also begins "renovating" her self-identity. In the meantime, Molly has caught the eye of the local Sheriff, Colin McMurtry, who gives her a chance at her own HEA in Darling Bay. I simply adored this book, especially Molly and Colin. It doesn't always happen, but I love it when I really like both the hero and heroine of a story. Both were written with strengths and insecurities that one could relate to and not be annoyed by. Colin was a worthy hero who accepted and loved Molly just as she was while questioning his own worthiness. Their meet-cute in the run-down cafe was one of the comedic highlights. Although billed as a romantic comedy, there is so much more than quirky characters and witty banter. You get real and heartfelt romance, as well as a poignant message regarding domestic violence and self-worth. Everything worked well together and flowed seamlessly. I'm looking forward to the next Songbird's story, as well as the other two series within the town of Darling Bay - The Firefighter's of Darling Bay and The Ballard Brothers of Darling Bay. I was gifted an ARC of The Songbird's Call in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review. I'm a fan of Rachael Herron and was eager to read her latest book. I started reading it and enjoyed it so much that I had to ration myself because I didn't want it to end! I hadn't read the first book in the series (don't know how I missed that - I'm reading that one next). This book can be read as a standalone. I finished reading it yesterday and really enjoyed how the Molly, the middle sister, came into her own. The book touches on a couple of hard subjects - abuse and body shaming. I'm familiar with both. I like the way they were handled in the book. The characters are very likable - even with their flaws. They are not flat but are real to life. The sheriff was abusive in his ways, like his father before him. I won't say anymore about that - you have to read the book! Rachael is getting better and better as a writer, which seems impossible since I adored her Cypress Hollow books so much. I can't wait to read more about Darling Bay. I highly recommend this book. And have to several friends and family. :)
I received an early release copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This was the first book I’ve read of the Songbird series (there is a book one.) I have read the Cypress Hollow series. What can I say? I love Rachael Herron’s books. I am not a huge “romance” reader, but her books focus on more than just romance. Rachael writes in a way that challenges you, as the reader, to put the book down. I end up reading far past when I should, often falling asleep while still trying to get through another chapter. The Songbird series is based on three sisters who were once a rather popular country group, the Darling Songbirds. This book focuses on Molly, and her return to her “hometown” of Darling Bay. All three sisters have gone their separate ways and started leading their own adult lives. Molly returns home to visit her sister and try to find her way. There are revelations and topics in this book that are so timely. Rachael doesn’t shy away from talking about subjects that are sometimes kept in the shadows. Her characters learn so much about themselves throughout the novel. They find their inner strength and character. Molly comes to Darling Bay fairly broken, though she thinks she’s conquered her demons. It takes a few side battles for her to learn who she really is. I loved that Molly wasn’t perfect, nor was any other character in this book. They are real people. Rachael’s female characters are strong women who sometimes don’t realize their own strength. They are fighting similar battles to the battles we fight every day. I always find a character that I can relate to in each of her books. Rachael’s writing is strong - you can visualize very easily where you are and who these people are. That is one of the joys in reading her novels. There is definitely some good, hot romance, but nothing over the top. For those who love a good love story, you won’t be disappointed. Now that I’ve read book two of this series, I am definitely going to go back to book one. I want to learn everything I can about Adele, Molly and Lana Darling, and anxiously await the next book in the series.
Great story! Much more than just a love story, it's the story of the strength of women and the courage to make a change. Molly and Colin are great characters - both wanted to do the right thing, both a bit afraid. Although it can be read as a stand alone, I read book 1 first (The Darling Songbirds) - it was good having the back story of Adele and Nick, and the Darling Songbirds. I loved the book and look forward to Lana's story.
I enjoyed this second book in this trilogy. This one was about the second sister Molly. She returned to her town and works on opening the cafe that was left to her by her loving uncle. She has baggage from her childhood and during her days as a music superstar. She meets up with the sheriff who has baggage of his own Through hard work and love they help each other. I really enjoyed the first book. This one was good too, and I am looking forward to the last one involing the last sister. Worth a read. Thanks to author for giving me this book!
The Songbird's Call, by Rachael Herron Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre: Romance.women's fiction I've never read any of Rachael's novels, but they seemed to be stand alone so even though I missed book one I thought I'd be ok with this. From the point of view of book two when I'd not read book one it was fine. I could follow the backstory, guess where there are spaces, and that wasn't an issue. I just found it hard to actually drum up interest in Molly or Colin. I started a couple of times and put aside. For some reason I just wasn't being drawn into the story, just felt like an onlooker, whereas in books I love I feel I'm there with the characters, happy and sad for them but with Molly and Colin I just felt detached. Maybe I'm just not in the right frame of mind for this story and it would work better for me later. There's no reason for me not to like it, the writing is clear and the story easy to follow, but I gave up about halfway through. I really thought I'd like this story so I might at some point come back and try again, and of course if I do like it then I'll edit this review, but for now its a two, didn't like it for me. Remember though, that's not the book, just my feelings of it, against the many, many readers that adore this couple. Make your own choice. Stars: Two, didn't work for me right now, maybe I'll come back to it in a few months though. ARC supplied by Netgalley and publisher
