From the Publisher:
We're in love.
And not just with the dreamy musician/cowboy nicknamed Paradise. We're in love with this story which even caused our copyeditor to "give up a few meals" so she could keep reading. It's deep and deeply romantic. Swoon.
Paisley Tillery is the drummer for a country rock band. If they can make it to the stage at the Texapalooza music fest, then Paisley will be closer to her dream of a career in music and a ticket out of her small Texas town.
Drumming and music are what Paisley has always wanted. Until the band gets a new lead singer, the boy from Paradise, Texas. With Paradise in her life, what Paisley wants, and what she needs, complicate her dreams coming true.
Okay, I admit it. I love a book that is set in Texas. My eyes light up when I read the synopsis and I hear the words "cowboy" and "Texas." I am really trying to beef up my contemporary YA pile and this looks like it will fit the bill. I am also happy to say that this book will be going on tour in the next few months. Keep your eyes out! Also, Jill will be at TLA this year signing ARCs. I can't wait!
