Silver Star


Sara Silver is a country music superstar. She has fame, fortune, and a ton of awards, but ever since her mother died, a part of Sara has gone too. When her manager arranges to send her to a ranch to find her soul again, Sara heads to Wyoming to rediscover her roots and herself, and maybe write some songs with depth to them again. Hiding her identity to keep the press away, Sara doesn't expect to find her heart again in tall, brooding, cowboy Cal. Cal is a widower with a young daughter. He doesn’t want to risk his heart on someone who is not going to stay, but something about Sara’s broken soul calls to his own. Sara cannot stay in Wyoming. Is it possible to have fame and the quiet life, or will Sara have to choose one?

A delicious contemporary romance, “Silver Star” is all clean goodness, cowboys, and country stars, a cute kid, horses and heartache, and a sweet romance that builds over the course of the book and feels real. Although the story is fairly predictable, with minor conflict and a very slow pace that makes the book feel unnecessarily long, the writing has many positives such as the smooth conversations, descriptions and setting. Further, the combination of Sara and Cal’s losses, their compatibility, and the lack of clichéd identity misunderstandings, make this a nice read. Overall, this is a nice light book for fans of cowboy contemporaries.
