One lucky break is all struggling actress Sidney Williams needs. But when living the LA life becomes too much, she heads back to the small town of Shamrock Falls for the vacation she needs to get her life on track—and immediately runs into Kade Mitchell, her former best friend and the boy next door she's always regretted leaving behind.

Kade, the new owner of Lucky's—once the most popular bar in Shamrock Falls—is determined to bring the place back to its former glory, and seeing Sidney again is a distraction he doesn't need. Sure, the chemistry between them is explosive, but Kade can't let himself fall into a fling with his best friend—not when he knows she's soon heading back to the glitter of Tinseltown.

Now, with the possibility of her first major acting role looming, Sidney must decide if her lucky break is in Hollywood or right where she left it—in Shamrock Falls.

I grew up in a small town, so love to read a story which takes place in a small town. Small towns are special because you see more familiar faces and have many friends, along with life being more relaxed, and you don't have snobby neighbors.
Linda Luinstra 4:07pm September 1, 2012)

I love small town stories, they just seem the perfect setting for any good book.

Jennifer Beck 4:44pm September 1, 2012)

I grew up in a small town. I can relate to topics about small town's. People would always tell me, I was a hick from the sticks. Til this day I still am proud of where I was raised. People always try to help each other out and seem to have warm loving hearts. I wouldn't change a thing about small town living. It was fantastic.
Cheryl English 4:53pm September 1, 2012)

Enjoyed your blog. Yes, I love to read stories set in small towns. The pace is slower and the people are unique. Your book sounds like a great read.
Sheila True 5:00pm September 1, 2012)

Hi Kelley,

It's the way that people in small towns care about each other. I think it's
the concern for their family, friends and neighbors alike that we readers
enjoy so much. Of course, too much concern may appear as meddling
too. Lol.
Susan S 5:07pm September 1, 2012)

I love books set in small towns where you get to know the people/characters. Sometimes the author can make you feel a part of that world and you don't want to leave. Looking forward to reading Lucky Break and the other stories in the Shamrock Falls series. Thank you.
Pat Walker 5:11pm September 1, 2012)

I grew up in a small town---and I'm not sure I like the way everyone knows EVERYTHING about everyone---It's hard to have any secrets.
Sue Farrell 6:44pm September 1, 2012)

Pick me love to read this book-I live in a small town in fla. but always loved going sown to Bevier ever summer to visit my cousins and made good friends,I made so many good memories and everyone knew everyone and whenever we all came down to see my grandparents who livesd on number 8, everyone would stop in for homemade ice cream and cake...each year we'd go down for homecoming, one big family reunion, we wouldn't win the biggest family but it was all in fun...my grandfather did win being the oldest and all his friends would laugh and tease him! Here in Crawfordville, my kids have made good friends and alot of good memories, so have I but not like theirs...my best friend isn't with us anymore but i do have good friends that would help me at anytime.

I love stories about small towns since I grew up in a small town. Here I don't
even know my neighbors. Even though in small towns everyone knows your
Kathleen Yohanna 8:10pm September 1, 2012)

When stories are set in small towns, they're more intimate. You can also get closer to the main characters that way, due to the fact that there's no extra clutter in the story. I actually prefer them. Since I now live in a small town, I can see the downside, but it doesn't stop me from reading about them!! I'm looking forward to reading your book, and comparing Shamrock Falls to the town that I live in. I'm sure it will be a great book to start of my Fall with!! Congratulations on your book!!
Peggy Roberson 8:26pm September 1, 2012)

Debby Creager 9:33pm September 1, 2012)

To me it's not about where the story takes place -- as long
as the story's well-written!

Thanks for the amazing giveaway!
Elizabeth Hyatt 9:47pm September 1, 2012)

I love stories set in small towns - maybe cause I live in one
- or maybe cause all of the fun supporting characters that
usually visit.
Diane Sallans 10:15pm September 1, 2012)

I live in a small town, so I naturally love stories set in small towns. Small town settings are much more personal than a big city. I'd love to be entered to win.
Martha Lawson 10:18pm September 1, 2012)

Pat Lieberman 11:38pm September 1, 2012)

Didnt realize this for a kindle version - dont have an ereader, so please count me out.
Pat Lieberman 11:42pm September 1, 2012)

I like the small town because there seems to be a deeper connection in their community that has been lost in the bigger cities.
Good luck and happy writing!
Tracie Travis 11:57pm September 1, 2012)

Love small tows!
Nancy Gallagher 5:41am September 2, 2012)

As an Irish person I am in favour of the Shamrock element!
I've read that in small towns, newcomers often think everyone is so friendly. They don't realise that the longtimers there are so bored by the same faces and stories that they are desperate for new company and a new source of gossip!
Clare O'Beara 6:34am September 2, 2012)

My small town experience has helped me adjust to all the new places, both large and small, we have been in our careers.
Suzy Slining 12:33pm September 3, 2012)

Small towns offer a setting whereby neighbors know one another and each other's business. I like the camaraderie and the ease most smalls have that's lacking in bigger towns.
