fallen idolSummary:

What goes up must come down…

Kyra Sanders had a promising career in country music in her teen years. She gained popularity and fame, riding high atop the the charts. Then one deadly accident changed things, sending her spiraling downward to the point she went into a hiatus from music.

Six years later, Kyra’s making her return to the music scene. With an album in the works and a new song on the radio, her career is back on track, until a call from Texas with news of an accident forces her to halt her plans.

Matt Greer is working through the aftermath of his ex-wife’s abandonment when she chose to leave him and their fourteen year old son to pursue her own musical dreams. He’s had enough of troubled musicians and the havoc they bring to his life. Kyra surprises him in a good way, but it doesn’t mean he wants anything to do with a singer who comes to town with trouble on her trail.

It’s hard to avoid each other in a small town, especially when their families are close. Matt should stay away from the woman who could lead danger right to their town, and it’s possible she already has, but he can’t help how drawn he becomes to her.

The sparks ignite, but danger lurks in the distance, only getting closer as time goes on. For two people who want different things out of life, it’s possible to find healing together…


This book had a little bit of everything. Romance and mystery topped the list, and made for a great combination. It was easy to feel sympathetic to Kyra after all she had been through, and she was a character I definitely cheered for. I felt the same for Matt, and it was hard not to want these two to get together, despite the many challenges they faced. I really enjoyed all the mystery and intrigue – the still unanswered questions regarding Kyra’s accident, the new mysteries as she travels to Texas that involves her family and mysterious sister. Sometimes the plot seemed a little too stretched out for me, but hey, when something involves celebrities and Hollywood careers, what’s too much? Still a lot of fun to get lost in!

nikki lynn barrettAuthor Bio:

I’m an avid lover of books. I’ve been writing as far back as I can remember, completing my first “book” by fifth grade in one of those one subject spiral notebooks. I have a passion for music, photography, jewelry and all things creative. I live in Arizona with my husband and son, but dream of being somewhere much colder and stormier. For now, I’ll have to live that life through my characters and stick it out with the summer heat.
