When the floods hit Nashville in 2010, Charlie Barton's bookstore, The Bridge, was destroyed. Now Charlie is in a coma following a car accident, and his store is about to be repossessed. Ryan Kelly has spent years on the road promoting his country music, but he has finally returned home to Nashville. When he was last there, he gave his heart to a woman whose controlling father forced her to marry someone else. Now all Ryan has left of Molly Allen are his memories of the hours they spent together at The Bridge. Ryan uses Twitter to plead for help in saving the bookstore. Molly hears about his efforts and returns to the city to assist him. Soon they learn that neither one has married. Can they move past their hurt feelings and to find a future together? -VERDICT Best-selling author Kingsbury (Coming Home) does a wonderful job of melding stories, moving between the present and the past and between points of view in this timeless story. A nice choice for readers who enjoy material from Kristen Hannah and Dorothea Benton Frank. [This title marks Kingsbury's first hardcover release with her new publisher-Ed.] (c) Copyright 2012.
