Release day: The Songbird’s Call
Today is the official release of The Songbird’s Call by Rachael Herron (book 2, The Songbirds of Darling Bay) (trade paperback and ebook, Penguin Random House). Here’s the blurb:
The story of the three Darling sisters continues in this sparkling romantic comedy of love, courage and finding your own voice.
Once Adele, Molly and Lana were the Darling Songbirds, a world-famous country band. Now they are just three sisters who barely speak. But that is about to change. Because their uncle has bequeathed them his business, the Golden Spike – a struggling bar, a rundown cafe and a near derelict hotel in Darling Bay.
With Adele settled as proprietor of the bar, middle sister Molly arrives in town, and is immediately drawn to the neglected little café where she worked as a teenager. Could she – dare she – bring it back to life.
As lead singer, Molly had always been the ‘voice’ of the band. Yet, caught between controlling big sis Adele and demanding baby sister Lana, she never felt she was being heard. If she’s going to reopen the café, she’ll do it on her own terms. She won’t be bossed around again.
So the last person she should fall for is the handsome Sheriff Colin McMurty – the man whose job it is to tell people exactly what to do …
Rachael dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
Writers usually try to stay far away from the autobiographical in their work (too many of their friends and family will see themselves in the books, and that’s without putting them in) but I have to admit, this trilogy about three country-singing sisters might have a little to do with the fact that I have two sisters and we were raised singing and playing guitar. That said, we’ve never inherited a saloon, cafe or hotel (more’s the pity), and we don’t live in a fantastic and colourful beach town, although we were raised in one. But my sisters are the most important people in the world to me, and while this isn’t our story, this book is an homage to sisterly love. And always, to finding romantic love with the hero that inspires our heroine to write the best song of her life.
