Launch - Welcome to the Tour!

And in The Firefighter’s Refrain, we introduce Sam, making ends meet as an academy instructor while waiting for his dreams of becoming a Nashville recording artist to come true.

Finn Leary has been more or less on her own from the age of 12, when she started waiting tables to help care for her younger sister and problems-riddled parents...
So while Finn likes and admires Sam, she doesn’t want to, because it means putting her heart in someone else’s hands, someone who—like her parents—will eventually let her down.

underneath the covers - Sam Marshall

Sam Marshall was born into a big, loving, tight-knit family out west, and doesn’t understand anything about Finn.
The challenge, he realizes, is bridging the gap between himself and Finn…without doing or saying something that will put him in the Finn Castoffs boat with every other guy who has tried and failed to woo her.

The Right Note Café Apple Pie & Sweet Tea…the Right Note Way

"The ending was so cute! I definitely recommend this book, and series, to anyone who enjoys clean contemporary fiction."

"I really enjoyed the way the story flows. There's a sweet gentleness to it and the way the characters are developed and interact with each other just warms my soul. Lessons of love, forgiveness, patience, overcoming fears, and independent strength are predominate feelings woven throughout these words."

Ciara scooped crushed ice into identical red-plastic glasses. “You know, I think, I think that Sam guy likes you.”

“All of my customers like me,” Finn teased.

“Yeah, but he’s the only one who stares at you that way.”

“What way?” Finn looked across the diner, straight into the big blue eyes of Sam Marshall, whose dimple appeared at the same time as his charming, slanted smile. It didn’t appear rehearsed, like the flirtations of so many other star-hopefuls that frequented her Right Note Café.

"This book was good. I felt like the plot swirled in the same place at times without a lot of forward movement so for me, it was the characters that made this book shine."

"A sweet romance–third in the series, but worked just fine as a standalone....I finished the book with a smile…"

I Am A Reader - Nashville Setting

Some scenes in The Firefighter’s Refrain take place in Finn’s diner, The Right Note. Others happen in Sam’s classroom and on-site as Sam instructs soon-to-be firefighters.

Nashville is a unique blend of old and new, and pulses with the hopes and dreams of would-be stars who put all they have into every performance delivered from the stages of a hundred old-fashioned pubs, entertain tourists from all over the world. They don’t call it Music City for nothin’!

Wishful Endings - Being a Country Singer

As someone who spent a few years singing for my supper, I know a little about what it takes to ‘make it’ in the competitive music industry. (Suffice it to say I didn’t possess all of these traits, or I might have a few album covers hanging on my walls, instead of books on the shelves!)...

"This is a well-written novel that grabbed and held me from page one. Good plot, lovable characters and a sweet ending. I could only put it down with great difficulty.
If you love clean and romantic stories this book is perfect for you."

There’s something genuine and gritty about good old-fashioned Country music. Whether toe-tapping or tear-inducing, each song manages—in the span of a few stanzas—to reach deep into our souls, to make us laugh, or cry, or remember the good times…and the bad…

"A couple of loners with huge hearts connect and enjoy getting to know each other!...
When Sam meets Finn at her cafe, he’s instantly drawn to her. When he hears she’s not up on musicians, he tries to keep his distance, but he can’t help but like her and her adorable kid sis."
We hope you enjoyed meeting the last of the Marshall boys, Sam, and the gal he's interested in, Finn, who both have their own dreams and struggles. Don't forget to enter the giveaway below...

He's a man who wants it all…if only he could have it....

Dreams of stardom took musician and firefighter Sam Marshall far from his Colorado roots.

Yet Sam's intentions are shaken when he meets the lovely owner of a local café. Suddenly, Sam's dreams are filled with her. Too bad that as the daughter of country-music wannabes, Finn Leary's been there, done that. She'll never choose a musician. So how can Sam possibly get the girl and keep the guitar?
