Dirty Little Secret by Jennifer EcholsDirty Little Secret by Jennifer Echols

Simon & Schuster / MTV Books,  288 pages

Publication Date: July 16, 2013

From Goodreads:

Bailey wasn’t always a wild child and the black sheep of her family. She used to play fiddle and tour the music circuit with her sister, Julie, who sang and played guitar. That ended when country music execs swooped in and signed Julie to a solo deal. Never mind that Julie and Bailey were a duet, or that Bailey was their songwriter. The music scouts wanted only Julie, and their parents were content to sit by and let her fulfill her dreams while Bailey’s were hushed away.

Bailey has tried to numb the pain and disappointment over what could have been. And as Julie’s debut album is set to hit the charts, her parents get fed up with Bailey’s antics and ship her off to granddad’s house in Nashville. Playing fiddle in washed-up tribute groups at the mall, Bailey meets Sam, a handsome and oh-so-persuasive guitarist with his own band. He knows Bailey’s fiddle playing is just the thing his band needs to break into the industry. But this life has broken Bailey’s heart once before.a  She isn’t sure she’s ready to let Sam take her there again…

I’ll read any of Jennifer Echols’ romantic dramas, and I’m excited about the Nashville music-scene setting in Dirty Little Secret. I love the show Nashville too, and the topic should make for a fun read with its mix of family drama, music and romance. The cover is pretty and designed a little differently than Echols’ other books. I like the color palette and the way it ties in so nicely with the premise. Sounds like an overall awesome summer read to me!

What book are you waiting on this week?

    ooooh! This sounds good! I’ve never read anything by Jennifer Echols. I’ll have to give this one a try. (PS – I Loooooooove the TV show Nashville!!!)

    Oooh, I’d love to read a book with a Nashville setting. Plus, I’m a sucker for stories that featuring a shunted aside sibling–must be a middle child thing!

    I haven’t read any of Echols’s work, but I follow her on Twitter and she seems wonderful. :) I hope you love this one!

    This sounds really good, potentially a rather emotionally distraught main character with trust issues that will create a little friction throughout the book with the main character, but I’m interested to hear what you think! :)

    Eep! I seriously will read anything Jennifer Echols writes! This one sounds so super great! I really love how she uses so many different settings and situations in her novels. Thanks for sharing this one!

    I’ve seen this book all over today! Don’t hate me, but I don’t really love Jennifer Echols. I LOVED Major Crush, but I had the opposite feeling about Love Story. And wasn’t really thrilled with The One That I Want, although I didn’t hate it or anything.
