When Bluestar’s hometown celebrity unexpectedly returns to the island, there’s a heartbreaking scandal following her…

Country singer Emma Bell is finally making headlines—just not the right ones. Before she has time to heal her broken heart, her assistance is desperately needed. Bluestar’s Concert on the Beach Summer Spectacular is in trouble, and her soon-to-be sister-in-law’s job is on the line.

Financial investor turned carpenter, Noah Sullivan, has retired from his high-stress job due to health issues. He’s moved to Bluestar Island for a quiet, healthy life, but when Emma blows into town, his days are anything but serene.

Everyone in the small town counting on them, Noah and Emma must work past their conflicts to keep a promise to someone special to both of them. Will the summer’s sun soothe their tension and the sea breeze lull them into a peaceful surrender of their hearts?

Includes a recipe for Emma’s Heavenly Angel Food Cake!

My Review

Rising Star was a fun and sweet romance between two people who seemingly wanted very different things in life. Would they be able to find a compromise?

It was fun to return to Bluestar Island and catch up with characters from previous books. However, if you have not read any of the other books in the series, you can still pick up Rising Star and enjoy it fully.

Emma and Noah had both become disillusioned in their lives. Emma ended up being publicly humiliated and not sure that her career path as a singer was going to go any farther. Noah had been a successful hedge fund investor until his health gave him a big wake up call. These two characters had to decide what was important in their lives, if the futures they had planned for were possible, and if they had room in those futures for new love.

I really liked the meet cutes in the beginning of this story for Noah and Emma. It set them up to be at odds with each other. It was fun watching them overcome those initial feelings and begin to give into the attraction that was pulling them together.
