Book Review: Nashville Part One – Ready to Reach by Inglath Cooper


Genre: New Adult Romance


Ever thought a dream might pass you by?

Nineteen-year old CeCe Mackenzie is determined to make her dreams come true. She heads for Nashville with not much more to her name than a guitar, a Walker Hound named Hank Junior and an old car she’d inherited from her grandma called Gertrude. But when Gertrude ends up on the side of I-40 in flames, Nashville has never seemed farther away. Help arrives in the form of two Georgia football players headed for the Nashville dream as well. When Holden Ashford and Thomas Franklin stop to offer CeCe and Hank Junior a ride, fate may just give a nod to serendipity and meant to be. Because while CeCe is chasing after her dream, she might find love as well.


If you love country music, hopes and dreams, you’ll love this book.

Nashville, Part One – Ready to Reach, reminds of the amazing show “Nashville” and I automatically saw the parallels when the characters make it to the Bluebird Café. Love, Love!

This story is a really sweet story of CeCe who, with her dog, guitar, and an ancient automobile set off from Virginia to Nashville, to live the dream. After a bit of drama, CeCe meets Holden and Thomas, two guys heading to the same destination with the same dream. Her knights in shining armour, perhaps. There is a little bit of tension, and a gracious amount of storylines to keep the story rolling.


The characters are lovely and likeable, and I really enjoyed the story. The author has a delightful writing style that is incredibly easy to read and will have you finishing the story in one sitting. I wouldn’t classify it as a ‘romance’ novel, but it does have romance in it. Perhaps there is more to come in the next few instalments! I would class it as a contemporary fiction, with lots of goodness to come.


This is only a review for part one. The rest of the story has been released on Amazon. You can get them as individual instalments, or click on the Amazon link to go to the box set.
