Hammer and a Song – Nashville Part Two

Nashville Part 2 - Hammer and a SongAfter finishing Ready to Reach for the book tour, I decided to keep reading. Inglath Cooper had me kind of hooked on this series. One thing I did notice as the series went on is that they were between 90-150 pages so they were very quick reads. If you are looking for a great little series that you can read in a weekend (or two plane rides across the Atlantic ocean) I would recommend checking these out!

For now, onto Part Two – Hammer and a Song.


CeCe McKenzie grew up dreaming of a life doing what she loves – singing in Nashville. When she and her Hound dog Hank Junior set out to make her dream come true, life takes some twists she hadn’t counted on. Like falling for Holden Ashford, a songwriter with a gift. And also a girlfriend. Can a country music star’s hunky son help her forget about Holden? Or is that even possible when her heart insists on writing the song?

My Thoughts

Part Two picked up right about where part one left off. Holden and Cece were waiting outside of the pound to rescue Hank Junior. With Hank Junior, Holden opted to adopt another dog as well. Coming back to the apartment Holden discovers what he had left behind 2 days before, Sarah.

Hammer and a Song is where the concept of time sort of got iffy. Holden had been gone about 48 hours but a lot had changed in such a short time. I understand that anything could happen but it was almost a lot to bring in within one book. Between recording a song & getting devastating news, it was almost too much to happen in such a short period of time.

I really think Ready to Reach & Hammer and a Song would have been perfect as one book put together. I’m not an author though and it’s not my decision to make! As a reader, that would’ve made for an awesome book and pulled me right into the next of the series.

To be honest, I was hooked anyways so it didn’t matter to me how it was marketed or organized!

The end of the book had me in tears for both Sarah & Cece. Holden clearly had a decision to make and I don’t know if I agree with the one he made. Then again, we will find out if it was the right one in What We Feel!

Just a note: I was a little concerned when I saw the “steamy” covers of this series. It is really not as “hot and steamy” as they look, which I considered a good thing! The storylines are great and I’ve completely fallen in love with these characters. I want to become friends with Cece!
